through the window

Our bedroom has five (FIVE) windows.
It's a heck of a lot of windows, if you ask me.
But anyway: it is what it is (we're are renting).

In the one facing east I placed this tall glass vase with husband's marbles from when he was little (yes, he still had his marbles indeed - along with many other toys from when he was little) and a white candle.

Here's the simple equation:


In the morning, when the light comes through, it reflects the colors.
... A nice way to wake up.
Just remember, ... never give away your kids' toys, you never know...

xox, d.


  1. such a great idea. Never thought of using marbles as filler beads :)

  2. i did that same thing but the marbles belonged to my mother and her sisters. The are antique marbles!

  3. lovely! i love that they were his marbles from childhood..that makes it so much more special!

  4. Great idea!!! I still have some marbles (ok, a lot more than that) from my childhood that I was just going to give away, but this seems like a much better alternative! Thanks for sharing :)

  5. that's such a darling eclectic idea! i may have to borrow it, but i'll but a backlink you and credit you. thanks for the inspiration :)

  6. What a cool idea! I would love to do this in my son's room, so I had better stop vacuuming up his marbles! ~ Yvonne

  7. I have vases of marbles because I love how they look. Never thought to use them as bases for my candles though.

  8. Beautiful and even more so since they were your husband's marbles! Glad he still has his marbles. Sorry, couldn't resist :)

  9. Always loved the marbles! What a great way to showcase them. Thanks for sharing this neat idea.

  10. Great idea! Must be like having your own personal rainbow!
