I See Diamonds!

The thrift store thought it was junk, but all I could see was sparkle potential. While walking through the store last week, the lady who runs it showed me the back room and told me everything in it was going to be thrown away and to take anything I wanted.
It was so dirty I wasn't sure if the crystals were plastic, glass or, well, crystal. I took my treasure home and removed all the dangley bits and after a quick dip in some soapy water, they came out sparkling, and they are crystal! I lay them to dry on my counter and when the sun hit them I had a million prisms on my ceiling. I don't plan on resurecting the chandelier, But the crystals hold all kinds of possibilities.
