Candle sticks and cut glass bowls make me very happy

Friday morning before I left for my suppose to be Drs. appointment, I check out The Pickled Pepper Patch along with some of my other favorite blogs, anyhow I was just smitted by the Under 5- project she was showing...... check it out at .http://charsethman.blogspot.com/2009/02/5-under-friday.html
So when we found out I didn't have an appointment after all...we went to a couple of thrift shops before going to McComb to eat, didn't find much in Tylertown, so we headed to McComb. I decided to check out the Outreach Ministries in McComb and they had everything in the store 1/2 off. Yeaaaa my kind of sale. I found several glass plates and a pair of glass candle sticks and a brass candle stick
I used one of the candle sticks and glued this little bread and butter plate on top. I paid $.50 for the pair of candles sticks and $3 for the plate. It was a little more than I really wanted to pay, but I really wanted it. And it still only cost $3.25 to make, and it is big enough to serve cookies or brownies or fudge on.


The first one was .49. And the other 2 cost .25 cents.

The tall candle stick cost .50.

This is just a couple of ideas I'm thinking about, haven't glued them yet. Need to pick up a couple of candles and I have plenty of ribbon, just need to decide color of candle.
My next major project is to redo my chest of drawers. Some one spilled something on it when I was laid up from my knee surgeries. And I didn't know it. This is in the spare bed room and I didn't come in here for a few months. what ever it was messed up my new paint job. I wasn't aware of much back then but my pain...and those 3 times a day drips. Thank the good Lord that time has passed. I'm thinking about painting it black with a natural top?????

  3. What a neat idea. I haven't been to McComb in years but would love to go. My parents grew up in Magnolia.

  4. You got some great deals on glassware. Is that first plate big enough for a cake server? It would be sooo pretty!

  7. Great finds! I would have bought them too. And a great idea to glue the candle holders on. I've seen that done before.

  8. Even at $3 I think that bread-n-butter plate was a good buy, it's very unusual and pretty, reminds me of a sea anemone or some other rare flower.

    I like your idea of the black w/natural top painting re-do. Seems to me that black is very popular lately and with good reason, it just looks so elegant yet primitive.
