A Little Flakey

While many of you are already decorating for Valentine's day, I'm still embracing the beauty of winter. What better time to enjoy the subtle colors of white, cream, and silver, with splashes of green ?Do you like the "ribbon" around my candles?
Can you guess what it is?You probably have some in your kitchen too.
It's foil that I folded and taped to the candles!

This picture is for Sally who asked if I was done with my silver collection.
There's already an addition of two mercury glass votives. They were 90% off. I HAD to buy them.

Everything looks great. I found some faux mercury glass at Michaels a few weeks ago. Apparently they think it's Christmas clearance. OK by me. Mimi

The Mannings said...

I just found your blog and love it! Thanks for all the cute ideas. I have a question for you. I've been wanting to paint my dining room table black for sometime now. It's just a basic pine wood table, with polyurethane on it, but no stain. Do you think I should just sand it to get the polyurethane off, or should I use something to strip it off? Also, would you spray paint it, or use a brush?

Thanks again!--Rebecca
