Yesterday, being a Saturday, and a no work, no sport, no housework sort of day,
Hubbie and I decided to do the Garage sale drive.
Nothing really grabbed my attention until the very last one……
That was when I discovered the Shoe Box…….
Sitting on a shelf, covered in dust………
A sneak peak was had,
the shoebox was quickly paid for,
while being held close to my chest…….
Can you see what’s in my shoe box ?
Crystals from an old Chandelier …
In all sorts of shape’s and size’s.
You would have thought Id come across my very own treasure chest,
Every 5 minutes i would ask the kids to come and gaze upon my wonderous Jewels,
needless to say after awhile they became very disinterested……….
Well at least for the moment………….
I spent the rest of the day,
cleaning and polishing
my little treasures,
One piece at a time.
Several hours later,
I sat quietly admiring all my pretty crystals,
Trying not to drool too much!
When i was younger I remember watching an Old Pollyanna movie and being enchanted by a crystal sun catcher that she had hanging in her bedroom, the way the sun hit the crystals and sent rays of colour throughout her room, pure Magic.
Funny the things we remember………….
I can see a few sun catcher’s being made for some very special family member’s and with Mothers day just around the corner,
Well who knows……..
But for now a “play” was in order and with some assistance from Dan,
Our Crystal Garden was made with a Flower or two………
A fluttering Butterfly……
And Dan’s Sun,
Our crystal Garden fit for a fairy,
And speaking of fairy’s,
In the bottom of the shoebox,
Underneath all the crystal’s,
I came across another very special surprise
Very clearly marked.
I think I’ll keep this little treasure in a very special place.
Just waiting for that “Fairy Dust” moment.
Perhaps my treasure’s once hung from a Fairy’s crystal Chandelier!
