Favorites Friday and Fabulous Links - better late than never!

I'm going to share some of my favorite things with you on Fridays and then more on Sundays over at Art Bead Scene. Since today is Black Friday, I'm in the holiday spirit. I found these Retro Star Ornaments which are the same as the ones that hung on our family's Christmas tree when I was a kid. These are from Tipple and Snack's Etsy Shop.

I love this colorful Beaded Christmas Tree Ornament from Wild Woman Jewelry on Etsy!

How fun is that?

I have those same 'sputnik' ornaments of my grammie's ( as well as the other plastic ones from the set) that I use every so often on my aluminum tree~yes I have a rotating color wheel light! I have so many ornament sets I do a different theme each year

I love that beaded tree. I really don't like Christmas trees as room decoration, but I love that ornament.
