As beautiful as it is...this world is not my Home.
"In my Father's house are many rooms; if it were not so, I would have told you. I am going there to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am." John 14:2-3
I bought these candlesticks a couple of years ago on clearance for about $20 at The French Shoppe in Hendersonville. This is a lovely little boutique whose clothes are made for tall skinny women. At that time they carried quite a collection of home accessories. They did fine in our new house up until a few months ago when I became bitten with the decorating bug. As a result, there was no way they were going to stay the same color. I am ashamed to say but, I THINK they were silver plated. I don't even really know! Anyhoo...I gave them a couple of coats of Heriloom White and dressed them up with ribbon, scrapbook paper (I didn't cut the lines straight, but it's ok right?),
and some homemade jute rosettes. I liked them before, but I like them better now!
