Friday Photo Fun - Something Sparkly

Something Sparkly
by Rachel Hoyt



I would've seen my face if I'd looked,
But staring at the strings had me hooked,
A bit of seventies inspired decor,
To illuminate an arty wine store,
Similar things hang in some people's doorways,
Mostly during their college party phase.

So what is this abstract-ified decor?
I await your guesses, scoffs and more!

Friday Photo Fun is when I share a randomly captured moment,
or perhaps a photo experiment with more purposeful intent,
then pair it with a rhyming riddle to exercise your mind
and teach you more weird facts to which you once were blind.

  2. I too don't know what they are called...they are curtains with beads, tubes and rings.

  5. Planning on attending college in West Virginia in my crazier stage of life, I actually knew what this was LOL. I just didn't know what it was called, but spent many of days going through them ☺

  6. EVERYONOE IS SORT OF ON THE RIGHT TRACK... This piece of decor was likely handmade by someone and does indeed use a BEAD CURTAIN look. There is more to the full answer though as it is no longer a bead curtain.

    Something everyone has in every room...

    1. I'm going to go ahead and give it to you. It's a mirrored beaded curtain lampshade which looks an awful lot like a chandelier. Great job, Wanda! I did not think anyone would figure this one out so fast. :) :)

    2. Thank you Rachel. I noticed your comment went to my test blog instead of my actual blog which is...

      http://tailfeatherchronicles.blogspot.com

      I would transfer it to the other blog but I'm not sure if I can. I grabbed you button, stop by and check it out.

  8. hmmm, I had one that was made into a really cool hanging shelf once a 3 tier with mirrors for the shelves, I have seen them made into wall hangings combined with macrame, chair covers as well. Not sure how this fits the clue but it is all I can come up with.

  9. I'd guess it's a bead curtain.

  11. Hello.
    I would never have guessed bead curtain, but I'm laughing because I think my 80-year old mom still has them where she lives! Good one! Thanks as always.

  12. Rachel:

    Maybe you should offer a less-abstract version after the true answer has been guessed -- I want to see this 'mirrored beaded curtain lampshade which looks an awful lot like a chandelier'!!! I think I want one ;-)

    1. Awww, I knew someone was going to say that. I didn't think to take a non-abstract photo while I was there (as is often the case). I will keep trying to remember for the future.

  13. Loved reading all these great guesses and comments. Again, a great Friday moment, Rachel!

  14. I'm bad at this. If no clues were given, I would think this was a spiderweb lol! And yes, I also want to see the less abstract version of that photo! :-)

    1. I'm sorry but I'm pretty sure I forgot to take a non-abstract photo. I'm going to check tonight when I'm home from work...

  15. "...a mirrored beaded curtain covered lampshade."

    I was going to guess something like that loose Christmas tinsel type stuff that you see hanging year round in random places. Can I get partial credit for that? (and half the prize money, which to my reckoning comes out to be $500.00 ;D )

    1. What? Someone donated prize money? Well, as soon as I get it, we can talk about how it will be distributed. :P

  17. Rachel~ We were in a wonderful Santa Fe gallery where black silk string was used as the window covering. I think the 70's trend is resurgent.
