Mama put a crystal vase in the window because when the sun hits it just right it sparkles beautifully! The picture I took does nothing to show how beautiful it can look, but it shows it little bit! And speaking of sun, the picture of the sun is from a few seconds after I took the picture of the vase! Isn't it just amazing?! The little blob of sun light must have been a water drop on the window. :) Sorry about that.
