My apologies to Mr. Flowers here. Today I did my Christmas decorating and tree trimming and as I opened bin after bin of holiday swag it became apparent that I like shiny sparkly stuff and have for a long time.
I have at least half a dozen Christmas Stockings. Starting with the first one from infancy: sequins. Childhood: Holly Hobby has sequins. Adulthood: sparkling stocking made by my grandmother two years ago. Not to mention two that I don’t recall how I got them, but they are shiny as shit. They look like holiday-colored/stocking-shaped disco balls.
So the tree is Sparkle Central. I put up white lights and all my glass blown ornaments, many of which have, you guessed it – glitter!
Apparently I have an inner Vegas showgirl in me that I was not aware of until Brandon Flowers coaxed her out.
