I have been obsessed recently with the color Aqua. I have always liked it but I have seen so many beautiful shades of it recently that I have decided I really want to paint my sun room Aqua. I also want to accent with more pops of Aqua. Don't get me wrong--I still love everything to be clean and white, it just makes the Aqua look all the more beautiful.
I have several projects I want to do with Aqua crystals. I had seen some beautiful antique chandeliers that had aqua and opaline crystals. I have to be reasonable about what I can find, and what I can afford, so I went looking for some pretty yet affordable crystals. I was so pleased to find http://www.cristalier.com/.
They have so many beautiful crystals and so affordable..in many different colors, including Aqua!
I wanted to see how pretty they would be and if they would be the right color to go with my other obsession right now, blue Mason canning jars. I contacted the company and asked them if I could buy just one and pay a reduced shipping because the shipping is $10--no matter what the size of your order. So they took my address and said they would look into it. Two days later I was so thrilled to receive this crystal and a pen! You might think it is funny to be excited about a pen, but I always love a new purse pen. :) And the crystal--it is beautiful! It is the perfect Aqua color. I can think of many many projects that would be beautiful with these crystals! I thought it was so awesome that this company sent me these at no charge, and it makes me think that they have a really great customer service department. Sometimes that is hard to find these days!
You can see how beautiful the color goes with the blue of the Mason jars! I love them!
I found this at Goodwill a few weeks ago...
Can you see my vision? Not so pretty now, this is going to be gorgeous when I get done with it after I get some more Cristalier aqua glass crystals. Stay tuned!
I'll end this post with a darling little watering can I got at our local thrift store for $1. My husband put some holes in the bottom so I could use it for a planter. Isn't she cute?
Thanks for visiting!
