A Gleaming Collection

Don't you just love it when a collection comes together effortlessly?
That's how I got my silver candlestick collection.
The tall, beautiful, mercury glass pair were a Christmas gift from my husband (I helped him pick them out).
The tall, center one was on clearance. The pair of shorter ones were 90% off! You can't pass up a bargain like that. The smallest in the center came from the thrift store, and so did all of the candles.
And there you have an effortless, gleaming, and pocketbook friendly collection of silver candlesticks!

If you have a candlestick collection you'd like to show off, go visit Beth. She's having a winter candle party. Come join us!

Gorgeous! I picked up a few mercury glas apothocary jars this weekend for $3.00! I was so excited!

I FINALLY painted my gossip bench, so I wanted to let you know. Stop by when you get a chance. She's not TOTALLY done, I'm working on some pillows. But I LOVE the color I FINALLY decided on. Hope you had a great weekend!

I've started a glass/crystal candlestick collection! I love it, I'll have to post a new pic b/c they are on my fireplace instead of the sofa table.

I LOVE your collection & it looks fabulous in front of the black frame! I got a couple of mercury glass candle holders at Cracker Barrel this past weekend...LOVE THEM!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE mercury glass. Some day my collection will look like yours. My hubby surprised me with some, as did my mom. I love them. And you get all the good stuff from your thrift stores. I wish I could get that lucky!

I also love the black frames in the background.

Those black frames really set them off. Nice new collection - are you going to add to it? That always seems to be my problem - I don't know when to quit. Sally

Amy said...

Very pretty. My mom has a beautiful collection of crystal (and some wannabe-crystal!) candlesticks grouped on a table with white candles. It's so pretty...I want to "borrow" them all for my house!

Great contrast in the items you used. It is quite pleasant.

Beth @ Blue Socks said...

Thanks again Joy!

I haven't had anyone else join in yet but I got more visitors yesterday than
any other day ever.

Hopefully some others will
post their candles to share too!

I love the empty frames! I do that all the time, and I've never seen anyone else do it. I'm half being lazy and half being cool. Anyways, it looks awesome!
