Shabby Candlesticks

I love these shabby candlesticks.  I originally bought them to re-sell but...

They go so well in my living room!  These are not vintage.  They came from Hobby Lobby at the end of a season and were marked 90% off the original price, I guess because they were a little "banged up."   Perfectly "banged up" in my opinion. 


Same with this pair.  They were really a good deal.   Funny how we do that.  We always tell each other of our "great deals" don't we?  We don't ever say "it was so expensive!"  Like when you have a new blouse and your friend likes it, usually our answer includes something like "and it was on sale!"
(Just a random thought that popped in my head while I was typing this.)

This candlestick was originally a bronze-y color.  I sprayed it white and really liked it, especially because of its height.  As you can see, I kept it too.

Just some beautiful pink roses.  Please remember to "stop and smell the roses" today.  Life is a treasure and we should treat it as such.   Hug someone.  Share love.  Visit with someone you haven't seen in awhile.

  3. Love the candlesticks my friend. YUM! do you have music? I thought all the PlayLists were gone???


    1. I had an old blog that had the music and I just copied the link. I wasn't sure if it would work, but it did. I haven't tried to add anything - I don't want to mess with it you know? Don't know how long it will last either:(

  4. A little banged up just means a bang up good deal! Yes, we all enjoy sharing our good fortune. lol! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
