Sometimes I just like posting ideas.
Things that are so simple, you can understand how to do it just from the photo! With our busy lives and busy culture, I think we all appreciate when we can create something pretty in a quick and easy way!
With that in mind, I've added a "Pretty|Simple" link on my sidebar where you can see all the "quickies" that I've done in the past, and I look forward to adding more!
The first to be added are these candlesticks that make their homes in my kitchen. I must have a secret obsession with candlesticks, because I keep accidentally adding more and more of them!
These three candlesticks were made into teacup votive holders with the help of some handy "Welder" brand strong-holding glue. It's sort of my take on the beautiful Anthro-inspired cake stands that we see everywhere!
I also have this decadent pair holding up my salt and pepper shakers. (Which everyone always thinks are candles...I can't imagine why.)
And this simple distressed ivory candlestick serves as my ring holder while I'm doing the dishes.
Confession: The ring holding one is totally useless, as I refuse to do dishes without gloves, and therefor never take my rings off. But hey, "beauty needs no purpose", right? :O)
P.S. "Pretty|Simple" sounds like a great book title! Actually, I could probably write a book just on candlestick ideas. You can do anything with them! I wish I had a rich relative who adored me and gave me indecent amounts of money to buy craft supplies and create endless projects with.....*dreams*.....OK, back to reality!
Take care, you!
