Good morning! I hope you all had a good weekend. We went to our dinner group on Sat. night and had a great time with such good friends. Last week I saw these beautiful cyclamen plants at the grocery store and HAD to have one. So, I redid the coffee table and brought out some of my brass. My friend, Johnnie Sue GAVE me a whole box of Baldwin brass candlesticks, sconces etc. when she moved and couldn't use them anymore. It was so very generous of her and I am so happy to have them and use them around the house! I got rid of most of my brass when it wasn't as popular but now it is having a come back. I placed my cyclamen in a lidded pot that I have had for many years.
This guy is one of a pair of them that I found at a wonderful gift shop on my way home from my sons house years ago. I am so glad I stopped there, as they are no longer in business.
The brass taper holder is one of the pieces from my friend.
I placed my blue LED candle on another gift from JS. Then I added the little wreath for some texture.
Here are a brass candle snuffer and snips. I had never seen the snips before.
The white orb adds a little more texture and contrast to the smoothness of the brass.
I also switched out the pillows on the sofa and brought back these favorite blue jar pillows. WHAT a lucky find they were!!!
Can you see how the design on the candle matches the design on the pillow in the background?
I didn't realize this til I put it all together.
Another friend gave me one of these plants when we first moved in here. It was in a tiny peat pot to take root. Today I have gotten 3 plants out of it and this is the 4th one starting. I just cut some pieces from the Mother plant and put them in the dirt and they become a new plant!
Nighttime with the candles lit.
Thanks for stopping by. We only got about 2 inches of snow during the storm last week and it is all gone now. Yesterday it was 57 degrees when we left for dinner group! Crazy weather this year!
