A Wonderful Spring Time Idea

Sorry I haven’t been posting…I have been working on a family tree and I am now making a book  for someone as a gift.  Lots of hours and lots of fun!

I did get some goodies in the mail, I saw these and just loved them and the idea behind them.  I thought I could do this, but in reality I never would…I am sure I have a bunch of these that I have bought at different times for different projects, or I just gave the whole lot to Goodwill…but you might like to keep your eyes open….

Wonderful Easter/Spring candleholders!  We all have seen hundreds of these thru the years at the thrift stores….but I added up the gas, the time, the candlesticks, and the spray paint and thought…nope, just going to buy them…LOL

This picture was taken by the Etsy seller….I didn’t get the big pink one on the end….she has more for sale…..

Even pretty wood ones…..

Just look up Mandolin Goose on Etsy, I think mine will be going on my patio.  I will be back shortly, I have about two more days on the book and then someone to proof it all….oh, and guess what?  I was published!  More on that later….have a great week!

Thanks for stopping by….:)

I think I've seen these before. Can't wait to hear the news on you being published! Exciting!

P.S. Lovin' the aqua in Baby Bee's room so much and I don't know how you can ever leave your cute crafty studio!

Oh how sweet -- love all the pastels! I peeked at her shop -- she's got an aqua peacock that is just fabulous!

Those are just beautiful! I have some old candleholders I painted and sanded pretty colors. Actually I think they were not old like vintage but just old like laying around the basement old. Anyhow, they look pretty and I have used them around Easter for decorating. Beautiful pics, thanks for sharing!
Hugs,
Julie
