Candlelight Vignette

Cold winter days and nights led me to create a candlelight collection of glass candle holders, some old, some new, and white candles occupy my vintage buffet in the living room. I love the round mirror above the buffet, but I will tell you that it is hard to hang any artwork around it...What I have right now are some leaf prints in spectacular mirrored frames and I like how it looks, but, it's a good size wall, and really could stand some additional artwork.

This lamp I love, I know it is a little different, yes it is vintage, and if you could have seen the condition it was in when I saw it sitting atop a shelf in one of the most atrocious thrift shops I've ever been in, and to look at it now after all the TLC...well you'd love it too! I call it my beehive lamp.

I love curly willow and because of the vaulted ceilings in the living room, I can stand the height, the vase is from Z Gallerie (love that store!)

I've had these candle holders for a while, from Target

The tall candle holders are from my workplace

Are you sick of seeing my bowl of pine cones yet !?! I really love the pine cones here in Missouri, they are so different from the pine cones I'm use to in NC.

Thanks for coming by! I hope you are inspired to try a candlelight vignette to get you through the cold winter months ahead!

Head over to Grits and Glamour to see all the wonderful Tabletop Vignettes! Thanks for hosting Barb!
