**ChiPPy!-SHaBBy!** Candelabra Bling & Tri-MIrrors!*!*!

Yesterday Jeff & I spent the day antiquing...  Let me tell you ~ NO SUN & WET/SLEET-LIKE SNOW MIX made even antiquing HARD TO ENJOY!!!  There's definitely something to be said for SUN... By days end, I did net a good number of Finds - but we ended up canceling our last stop - we both wanted to GO HOME...  My Finds are yet to be unwrapped...  We woke up to SNOW this morning - MORE coming later today & tonite!!! ~ OMG!!!  In the meantime, enjoy "Some Sparkling Bling" from SaLes Past!!!  - Things to look for come Spring!!!


 Although the Tri-Mirror and girandole candelabras are "long-gone" - I enjoy visiting this photo every so often...  
GliSteNinG Bling!*!*!



 These candelabras were true beauties with garlands of old prisms & star burst flowers near the top...




 I LoVe OLD darkened wires on prims...



 Center Stamens like this "unscrew" from the flower...  Many a time you'll find them missing...




 I passed up a reasonably-priced Tri-Mirror yesterday, only because it did not have "Etching"...
My Love with Tri-Mirrors:  Silver-Loss Patina, Chippy Frame, & Etching Design are a must... 




 This was yet another true beauty - the candle holders were made of wood...  I just recently SOLD the architectural piece with garlands at the last Grayslake Antique Flea Market in Illinois a couple weeks ago...




Great side profile...

I'm ready to say GOODBYE to Winter!!!
One GOOD thing for YOU - with weather like this - IT MAKES ME START PULLING MY PERSONAL SHABBIES OFF OUR WALLS AND TAGGING THEM "FOR SALE"!!!
