I love candle sticks, all kinds, shapes, sizes, colors, and ages. I have a small collection which is an assortment of vintage, handmade, reproduction, glass, metal, thrift store treasure, and funky. I love them all.
This is my newest favorite. I bought it from a thrift store last week with the idea of selling it, but I've decided I want it.
Here are two I purchased when I was into all things Shabby Chic. I never have gotten around to painting them and I need to do that.
These were a gift when I worked in a crafts mall. They look heavy, but are light weight and have a rough texture on the outside. Actually they look like they were in a fire....I loved them from the moment I saw them. Not old, just funky and fun.
The candlestick with the green base is vintage and one of my favorites, while the Shabby Chic looking one is a reproduction.
This odd assortment is from my last thrift shop trip. I'm not sure what metal the large one is, but it's a cheapy reproduction. I just thought it looked great with the group. The other four are glass and nothing special, just add a nice touch.
As you can see, I'm a not "purist" in my collecting, but then I'm not a purist in any of my collections. I love a nice eclectic mix. Besides, a nice eclectic mix is affordable and much more interesting than a "perfect" collection.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a very special day.
