Show & Tell Friday


Please join in for today's Show & Tell hosted by Kelli at There's No Place Like Home.

Here's a little corner in my dining room where I've tucked way all my favourite candles and candle holders. I didn't realize that I had garnered this collection until one day I was doing some cleaning and organizing. When I saw how many candles I had, I wanted to be able to keep them all in one place.

I remembered I bought the shelf at a garage sale last summer for $2 but unfortunately, it was collecting dust in my laundry room. So I cleaned it all up and brought it upstairs and put it all together.

By the way, my favourite piece is the gold crackle glass vase on the top. I bought it at a ginormous antique store near Toledo, OH about 10 years ago while visiting friends.

Thank you for stopping by and taking the time to see my Show & Tell. It's not everyday you get to go to Canada, eh?

Blessings,
Jessica

A collection always has more impact when arranged as a grouping as you have done on your shelf unit. Thanks for sharing.

It's amazing how you can find one certain piece that just HAS to be yours isn't it? I can see why you wanted that crackled vase. Gorgeous.

Stop by my antique show n tell if you can. [you'll need to scroll down a bit since I added the Tropical Storm update of the damage done in Houston where my son lives on the top of my blog this morning! ---]

Happy weekend.

I LOVE candles. Here in AZ we have to keep them in the refrigerator if we are not using them because they will lose their shape. Your corner shelf is beautiful also.

Love candles.

I laughed at ceekay's comment because I'm in AZ too and I know just what she means LOL
