I had picked up a box of antique prisms at a garage sale years back. I didn't have a plan for them, but when icicles kept popping back into my mind, I pulled out that box and emptied it on the carpet. Here is a close up of the prisms in Grandpa's old tool box. Not to get off the subject, but I love to use my Grandpa's tool box in my vignettes around the house and on the front porch. I don't think Grandpa would have crystals dangling from the latches, but I think he would be happy to know that it has a new life many times over.
Instead of tassels hanging from the locks on the dish cabinet, I used more prisms.
How exciting to finally pull something out of storage and have a legitimate use for it. A word to the wise--keep your stash, just ORGANIZE it. I have one of those label makers and I have a ball with it. Every container in my craft room is labeled and I mean EVERY container. I don't waste time trying to find stuff. It did take a lot of effort to initially organize, but once you do it, and KEEP it organize, your life will be simpler.
And here is the entire foyer.
Until the next posting...
