    I read way to many thrifting blogs. I am annoyed when they don't post every day. They make me look at things that I shouldn't, want to collect things that I shouldn't. Now, I went and pulled the trigger...

    So I have been reading about older Christmas ornaments called Shiny Brites. I started to look at cool pictures of these ornaments, then I wanted to posses these items.
    Knew there were a couple of them in this giant bag of Christmas cr*#.
    Got home and sorted them wheat from the chaff style.
    Kept the really scary angel as the eye shadow and hair remind me of Mani.
    Got a couple of good ones.

    If you want to see some creative usages of these, check out Shiny Brites on Etsy.

    I confess, I found this really fun...

      AmberRose, the following is a link to a beautiful pottery bowl that a newbie listed. As yet, so one has a suggestion as to make or age. Would you please take a quick look? Many thanks!

      Well AmberRose, you really did it! After resisting for over a year, I broke down and purchased 2 Shiny Brites today (couldn't resist the prices) and that was quickly followed by numbers 3, 4, 5 and 6! (even better prices than 1 & 2)

      Oh VintageStation I am so with you. Just posted a new one. I think it is a cry for help.
