White Roses & Punkins'

Living in the rural countryside is the best but when it comes to shopping it means a full day in town for me. I try to do all my errands in one day and the route always passes by an antiques place or two. (It just works out that way...hehe.) Yesterday I picked up two items....although not old, I just loved the look of them. One was a pink glass hand, perfect for holding necklaces and rings and the other was this bouquet of faded white paper roses that I think would just be simply divine just laying on a table. I just got them both listed in the boutique. I also finally started my Fall decorating.

Over a period of a few months, while "treasure hunting", I picked up many old wooden candlestick holders, usually for 50 cents to 75 cents. I painted them all a white or creamy color and distressed them. Then I placed them on an old silver quilted metal tray from the 1940's that I found on eBay for a very low price which I also saw pictured in one of Ms. Ashwell's decorating books. Lucky me! The whole display sits on my very modern and contemporary glass topped coffee table. It's so very pretty at night when all the candles are lit. I add the white pumpkin to the display for the season.

Lynn, I love the glass hand. I've seen that idea before but never in glass like that, it's so pretty. Pumpkin looks great with the candlesticks.
