Thrifty CRYSTAL finds & updates to my mobile/portable fireplace

My crystal  fireplace is such a beauty but, can I tell you a little secret, I came home and took pics of everything with my GOOD CAMERA and would you believe they all sucked, sucked & major sucked.  I have not yet taken the time to read the manual. Bad me I really want to improve my photography.  Defiantly one of my goals for next year is to take my camera out of A mode.  ughhhh!!!  I guess I will just blame it on being overly tired lol I do use the GOOD CAMERA and actually get good pics… I swear

Here some pics from my always trusty iphone after a little playing on PicMonkey

  • 2 sets of peg lights all for 49 cents each
  • the big peg light was $1.99 *its an awesome cut crystal so I thought it was totally worth it
  • set of tall votive holders were 49*cents green tag so 24*cents each
  • the crystal candle stand was 99 cents (I already had its pair from some previous GW trip)

    Ordinary Words….I use candles almost daily now that the time change makes it dark early…but I just had a glass break when the wick wasn’t in the middle of the votive! so never leave any unattended♫♪
