I purchased small glass stones (the teaspoon is for size comparison). They were supposed to be amber, at least that's what they looked like in the store. But when I got them home they were more cranberry colored and I don't have anything red in the room. I wanted amber to go with the gilt candle holders and to intensify the more yellow gold shade.
However, once I got them in I decided I liked the cranberry shade because if there were a fire there, the embers would be glowing this color.
But from a distance you really can't see the cranberry color very well.
Ah well, I tried. I can either get some different stones, and/or lightly dust the black leaves in the frame with a coppery spray paint -- or leave well enough alone!!
GOOD NEWS ABOUT BAILEY: He has lost 4 pounds since Thanksgiving. He is now 17 lbs-- at least that's what my scale says, I haven't checked the vet's scale yet.
