Rhinestone Decor

What did we do before "google"? Why, there is such a wealth of information out there- and my favorite search involves the word rhinestone. Tonight I was inspired by some photos of decorating with rhinestones. I had seen something very similar this afternoon in a magazine, so sure this must be the start of a new trend. AND the Chillettes must take credit for the proliferation of this sparkly wonder.

The teacups filled with rhinestones as a centerpiece solves that age old problem of what to do with all those glimmering treasures when you are not wearing them. Now you know! Use them throughout your home and add a sparkle to your decor. The arrangement above would look especially nice in a guest bathroom or on a dressing table. A clever way to store your jewels, yes?

Using your jewels to fill a goblet or large serving bowl is another option. Mingling them with other sparkling jewels is acceptable if you do not have an adequate supply of rhinestones. (If this is the case, I advise you to get out this weekend and search for those perfect pieces to accent your wardrobe...and to add decor...)

Imagine what an eye catcher this would be as the centerpiece for your next dinner party. Place silky napkins with elastic rhinestone bracelets as napkin rings and your table will be complete.

Well- not completely complete- the addition of candles would make it complete. Rhinestone "studded" candles would be ideal.
Here are a couple that I found....

A Birthday Amid Tornados

Tiffany Dawn successfully celebrated her birthday despite the tornados that came through the area. TD and the Fabulous Chillettes began with a brunch at Violette's house, then out for a mega shopping afternoon. Junkman's Daughter was our first visit, then off to Howell Mill for some serious shoe shopping. Found a couple of shoe stores and found many bargains. While in the first store, we hear on the radio that a tornado is heading our way. Bambi Jjoe takes charge and locates the bathroom that we are going to hide in...Violette stand under a doorway for safety....Tiffany Dawn and I continue trying on the cutest shoes we can find. Needless to say, the threat passed and we were not harmed. Shopping continued, then more wine and dinner. Then off to Paris to dance (no, not the real Paris- the club in Decatur). We ruled the dance floor- especially since we were the only ones on it.

Tiffany Dawn is having a birthday!

The Chillettes enjoy celebrating, and what better time than a birthday? Well, Tiffany Dawn is having one (we are not sure which one) and we plan to spend a good part of the weekend celebrating her birth- for what would the Chillettes be without TD? Which reminds me- she did try to quit once. Yes- sad but true. When Tiffany Dawn moved to Gainesville, she decided she would have to quit the Chillettes. This was a big decision, since we were still performing at the Big Chill then. She came to us with a large shoe box filled with her momentos. Included were a tiara, her lovely "fuzzy" red animal prit scarf, her banner (from the 4th of July parade) and other Chillette-like items. Well, we flat out refused to have her quit! But somehow, I still have that box in my closet. It has been added to over the years, and now inlcudes quite a variety of tiaras, including that new one from Party City that lights up! I am looking forward to wearing it to osome very special occasion.

So, back to TDs birthday. Starting with happy hour on Friday, but only two Chillettes can make that. I am hoping they take some photos. Then all day Saturday- shopping, wine, more shopping, dinner, more wine, I hope some dancing and singing. I think it would be fun to go sing some karaoke. After all, folks outside of Decatur haven't heard us yet- why deprive them?

Now- what to get TD for her present, even though The Chillettes are presence enough!
It should sparkle or have feathers, or else just be terribly creative. Might have to make a trip to The Junkman's Daughter. Went there last week with Chappy, and bought some fun things. Got some tattoos, just in case I feel like looking old and hip.

Here is where I need you help. Where should we take Tiffany Dawn for her birthday to dance and sing? I would love your suggetions and hope to get some good ones.

Hope to have some fun photos to post after we celebrate.
