All that Glitters at the Gold Market

in hive-196308 •  last month 


Today is #MarketFriday initiated by @dswigle (That's me! Denise! I haven't had to go grocery shopping for a while, except for fresh produce, so now I have today off and get to go do my #MarketFriday at the antique shop. It was a while back, one can never go antiquing enough. You just never know what kind of hidden treasure you may find there! It runs from junk to vintage to holy moly! That is real!! Most days you walk away with nothing, but every once in a while...Score! The surprise of it all is half of the fun.


All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost
― J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

Today is a wonderfully beautiful day! No day is complete without a spot of glitter! Behold! Glitter me happy! Everything in this small shop is with sparkles, glitter or gold. Be still, my heart!

It can be so dangerous to buy a chandelier. I thought a chandelier, just the name it implied, gave it a sense of grandiose, but honestly, they are way more approachable than that. I have one in my bathroom, bedroom, entryway, dining room, and even in the nursery. I was told that doing the laundry room would be going overboard. You think?? They are like pieces of jewelry for your home, aren' t they? I think they reflect your personal style.


It adds a touch of elegance and glamour to your surroundings. Otherwise, I am not sure I would be able to write my poetry. Somehow, it just feels right, the atmosphere, and all. I never take it for granted.

I don't mind the wow factor. I love walking in the room and seeing the pretty little lights, but, not to be overwhelming. So let's choose wisely. For aesthetics, I need a dimmer switch or be able to have one installed with it.

Then again, sometimes less is more. Less is best. Or is it?? With a chandelier, a person with a good eye will tell you that you should err on the side of too big rather than too small. It would look ridiculous to have a tiny chandelier, but you can always get away with having something a little bit bigger. Or so they say.

No such thing as too much glitter or gold, is there?

Thank you for visiting my post 💖 Because of you, I come back to post, again and again. And never forget, kindness counts. Wherever you go, whatever you do.



they set my aunts house on fire
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?

i’ve been praying,
and these are what my prayers look like;
dear god
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.

later that night
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
and whispered,
"where does it hurt?"
it answered,

"everywhere"
"everywhere"
"everywhere"

Never too much glitter nor gold! Much like I believe it was Mae West that said to much of something can be fabulous or something to that affect. I too enjoy the antiques shops that also have some vintage items. I love to go up and down the aisles declaring to the kiddos which items I had when I was young. Oh yes they simply love it when I do that just a bit to loud!

Agreed. Never too much. Hehe... Just imagine if they were glittery gold coins? Now we are talking!!

There is just something warm and comforting about looking at things that were loved from generation to generation, lovingly cared for, instead of the throw-away society in which we live. Oh, you are an antique, aren't you? You should be feeling lucky those kids haven't donated you to Goodwill yet! LOL

You get loud?? I don't believe it. Hahaha. Poor chilluns.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your words behind!

I love walking into antique shops it's like going back in a time machine i heard there are a few around here in Bangkok city if they are open i must check them out and i do love chandeliers if they are in the right setting.

My @marketfriday link late again this week time does not stand still for anyone.

I'm not too attracted to glitter, certainly children and most girls, women are caught in this admiration. I don't know why there is congestion where there is glitter ... I mean objects.
I prefer Klimt's glitter, you used it perfectly!

Oh, I am sure it is a girl thing unless we are talking about gold coins. Then it is anybody's thing! Haha! I like the phrase there is congestion where there is glitter A truly perfect reference.

Re: Klimt Yes!!! A perfect one! I love it and I was pretty sure that you would too. :)

Thanks for stopping by, Dan! @bluemoon It is a beautiful day here and not to be wasted! I hope you have a wonderful one too!

#MarketFriday loves you!

!tip

A beautiful day here too! Thank you.
I hope for a normal life again!

That is wonderful. Well, we can hope and pray, but, I believe a new normal will be established for a while.

Of course, you're absolutely right.

Perhaps one day, we can back to where we belong.

Well, Denise! I wanted to see if you trust me that I will post in #marketfriday and because of this I didn't put the link in the first comment.
I put it on now, to see that I'm trying to keep up with the others ... dear @dswigle!

It was a store that had them, that is why they were everywhere. Bigger is only better if the whole picture fits, I agree with that. Too small sometimes looks ridiculous, but, too big can be worse! Thank you for stopping by and leaving your post behind!

These gold things are nice but I'm afraid it's not for me. Gold is to shiny and yellow for me, no matter in that form comes in. Unless it's in my safe box, I'm trying to avoid it :D Regardless, I'm glad to see these masterpieces and if I were to choose, I'd choose the wooden cupboard :D

Oh, you are so cool!!! I'm always happy to see you and your amazing posts. Thank you for taking the time to stop and say hello, leaving the post behind.

Haha! That is where I love my gold! In my safe box! The wooden cupboard is a perfect choice!

Love your photos Denise, always beautiful.
But it’s your poetry that gets me. You are always so upbeat. I feel you. Thanks for that.
But now because of my of you I will add a picture of a flower 🌸 I do enjoy growing flowers then of course photographing them, so I have a bunch.
Thanks for the inspiration 🤗

Thank you so much! Your comments are always so kind and your words, generous. Oh, I love it when people leave a flower like that! :) Oh, if you have a bunch, you can always tag #alwaysaflower. There are so many flower lovers in my new community. I am still working on the site! But, eventually.... but, we still post to it anyway. I never realized so many people loved flowers!

Thank you so much for stopping by, and leaving your words. So kind of you!

Good Morning Denise, yes I am definitely a flower lover. I sorta go nuts here in Upstate NY this time of year. It's planting season. So it's long tough days, but joyful ones. Finally get to plant my seedlings outside, then just watch them thrive. Not bragging, well maybe a little, I do think I have a green thumb. I have bought near dead flowers/discounted of course back to life.
I love the challenge. Give it a month, my flowers will burst, at least that's the hope hehe.

I always enjoy your posts as well as others from your community, I am in...#alwaysaflower. Thanks for the invite.
Have a blessed weekend.

Haha! Because I haven't built up the site yet, the only big thing I did is add members and try to get over and upvote and comment... I want to make it a really nice place to put your flower. I promise we'll get there. I am nonsensical when it comes to flowers. I just love them and they are nice enough to love me back!

Have a blessed weekend yourself!

It takes time to create a masterpiece as I am sure it will be ❤️

That is so sweet of you to say. Thank you.

I love Versailles, although it has been a few years since I have been there! Oh, yes! The word chandelier is so very French! I am sure that is why it is so lovely and yes!!! Grandiose! :)

I love looking at all the different ones that they have hanging in this shop. I am sure that you would love to go there too! Thank you for your kind and always generous words! And thank you for dropping your link here!

Very cool and interesting post, Denise.

I'm not a big fan of glitter... I prefer to stay in a small rustic hut in the middle of the forest than in a 5 star luxury hotel crowded with people. 😁

Thank you and no worries. We are all individuals in our tastes and I must be able to provide different places for #MarketFriday.

I am sure it would be peaceful in a small, rustic hut in the middle of the forest. I personally don't like big, crowded hotels either. I am sort of in-between the hut and the luxury hotel. :)

I adore chandeliers. The sparklier the better !

I say, go ahead, put one in the laundry room. If you have to do laundry, it might as well be in somewhere glamorous.

Hope you are doing well.

Luv ya !

Well, darn it! I love your attitude. You're all about rainbows and unicorns I can tell!

I hate to tell them but all the Glitters Is Gold. And if it's cold enough it'll Sparkle and perhaps you can throw a few my way. Glitter me happy! I am doing most excellent and I hope you and your family are doing the same.

How is Mom doing? I think about her and your stepfather. Thank you for stopping by and leaving your always warm and wonderful words.

#MarketFriday loves you!

It's feel good gold for sure !

Family is doing well as far as I know.

Poor Mom ! She is such a trooper, stuck out in the middle of nowhere (but at a home she loves to pieces)..... with Mr. Lame Brain...ahahahahahaha..... nobody can help ! She acknowledges it's the crazy house out there, but she never shows sad on the outside. I hope it doesn't kill her ! Thanks for asking. 😄

Now go see the newest piece of art. It needs some critiquing.

You must have read my mind! I went there first.

I was! I was reading your mind ! 😂

Get out of there! :)

I will in a little while, I'm not done collecting all these juicy secrets yet.

Only you think they are secrets when in reality my entire life has changed since the good old days. xoxo

Very beautiful photos of soft warm lighting and cheerful glittering to perk one up from sleepiness. Love to wander around such antique shop full of old style lamps and chandeliers. The classic old style of the good old days!

Have a nice weekend!

Thank you so much. You and I, we both love to wander these kinds of shops. I don't even need to buy, I just like to walk around and look and see what they have. There is something to be said for the classic style of the good old days. One of the things I do love about the chandeliers is the soft lighting that it provides, or very bright if you wish.

Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving your words.

Oh! I could stay in this shop for hours and still be able to discover something interesting! My eyes would take pictures of these stuff and put them in my head!
The glittering warm light always reminds me of the good old days and fond memories!

Cheers.

Truth! There are some things in life that I actually do take pictures with my eyes so that I don't lose out on the experience.

I can agree that the warmth of the light pulls me into memory lane. xoxo

Stay safe and healthy!
