Monday Must sparkle

Monday, November 29, 2010

Oddly enough this weekend I was drawn to Christmas ornaments in the stores. Maybe its all that sparkle. I'm a sucker for anything that sparkles. Anyway, I found myself looking through all the endless ornaments at Pier 1 (I went in the store for an entirely different purpose). I haven't even put up my Christmas tree yet and for me the holidays seem so far away as my workload gets the most intense this time of the year. My tree is usually pretty safe in its decor choice...faux tree, white lights, stuffed with lots of white ornaments.. My sister J expresses her dislike each year as she says its too 'done' and not homey enough. My little girl wants pink ornaments this year and my 2 year son also chimed in with the request for lots of green trimmings. Oh what to do? How do I ever relinquish my control freak holiday decor rights?  Yep, the Christmas madness is slowing beginning. In the mean time..lets look at the sparkly ornaments shall we?
Very glamourous indeed. These would be a perfect for all the brides to be I know (yep you N, B & C). Available at Pier 1.

Thought of my french loving friend S when I saw these. Then I seriously started reminiscing about my trips to Paris as a youth and got depressed. Also at Pier 1.
Kinda a freaky...but for some bizarre reason I like them (well not the blowfish scares me a little). At Pier1.
Spotted this baby online at CB2. I know..its a cow..but I like it. 
This one reminds me of my hubby..since he is so anti-Christmas, this might make the perfect present for him. Also available at CB2.
I didn't see these when I went in person, but now I totally want them...BADLY! Guess who is going to Crate & Barrel next weekend? Available at Crate & Barrel
Penguins do it to me every time. Love these. Strangely they remind me of my two brother in laws J & G. Also available at Crate & Barrel.

Okay, not quite sparkly or shiny, but the effect of these little beverage reminders can be the same. Totally you C. Totally you. Available at your local Starbucks.
Finally these last two from my own little monkeys pushing me to make a Christmas tree decor change. Pink & Green at Bouclair.
