Fallen Crystal

Hello, Dear Ones!
Today I wanted to share with you my crystal ball ~ it's Fallen.
Our home was built in 1970 and of course a wet bar was put in the den.

We're not drinkers and so I decided to turn this space in to my Crystal Bar.
I poked down a few faux pun'kins and called it Fall Y'all! :)
Yep, that's me in the mirror. This place has mirrors on three sides and it's almost impossible to snap without getting caught! :)

The colonial couple you see in the center are Murano glass that we brought back from Venice, Italy last year and the matching bowl too.

This side holds mostly olden Fostoria crystal in the Colony pattern.
There I am again.

This side holds most Fostoria in the American pattern.
Shoot! There I am again. I'm sure you're enjoying seeing me and my camera!

Then, I took my shabby fabric rose wreath and poked in some loose Fallen leaves.
Cool, huh? :)

Here's peeping into the mirror and seeing across the other side of the room.
Just some more simple Falleness around my house.
Thank you all who visited my last post on my living room.
I've been traveling for a few days and having so much fun and probably won't get around to commenting back, but know I've read every comment and thank you all so much for your kind words.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

I'll Be Your Mirror

Reflect what you are, in case you don't know
I'll be the wind, the rain and the sunset
The light on your door to show that you're home
When you think the night has seen your mind
That inside you're twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind
Please put down your hands
'Cause I see you
I find it hard to believe you don't know
The beauty you are
But if you don't let me be your eyes
A hand to your darkness, so you won't be afraid
When you think the night has seen your mind
That inside you're twisted and unkind
Let me stand to show that you are blind
Please put down your hands
'Cause I see you
I'll be your mirror
