During my travels last month, I had the pleasure of making an overnight stop
on our way home ( in-between trips) and visit our friends
who live on St. Simon’s Island. As soon as we arrived, we were treated to lunch
and a visit with their beautiful grandchildren and daughter in law.
After lunch, the grands headed back home and JoAnn and I hit the roads and went shopping,
The guys took the bikes and biked on the beaches of Jekyll Island.
While the guys got their exercise from biking, we get ours by running . . . . .
in and out of shops!!! My kind of exercise!
It was on my shopping adventure with JoAnn that I saw something. . . .
Something I Could Not Pass Up!!!
It is the Brighton Pagoda candle holder by Two’s Company.
I researched it when I got home and found that Wayfair
had carried them (sold in pairs) but out of stock.
Isn’t it a beauty? I must admit that I stood in front of it and
thought long and hard . . . should I get it? I walked away, but then
came back to where it was and stated to my friend JoAnn, “I am getting this!”
I could not wait to come home after being with my mom in Georgia to
place it on the coffee table and create a new vignette.
I wanted the new vignette to have a mix of various of metals and textures.
These antique marbled covered books add great texture and were also a great find on my trip.
So I definitely wanted to use them on the table.
My antique silver monogrammed creamer adds to the mix of metals
of silver, brass and gold tones.
Lavender from the Pelindaba Organic Lavender Farm
found in a lavender shop on my trip fills the silver vase and creamer.
The small silver vase found on a trip to Maine years ago,
is crafted from a silver fork!
Preserved boxwood is always a great thing to use to add beautiful color
and texture to a vignette. Love the contrast of the pure white ironstone
and the deep green color of the boxwood.
I lit the candles the other day when I completed the new vignette
on the coffee table and enjoyed the candlelight so much that I let the candles
burn down a bit and loved the way the candles look with the lovely drippy wax.
I am so happy that I chose to buy this Pagoda candle holder as I so love it.
There was a larger sized Pagoda candle holder. I chose the smaller one.
Also love the fact that it is versatile and I can use it in any of my rooms.
I continue to use the breadboard on the table as I feel it
grounds part of the vignette on the table. The same way you would use a tray
to corral some items on a table for a more interesting, collected look.
As I was photographing the table, I looked over and saw the reflection of the
candles in the window. I noticed that I did a good job in creating the graduating
heights of the candles by the way the reflection shows. 🙂
Oh it’s those little things in life that can make me happy! Ha!
I came home to find beautiful new growth of leaves on the trees and shrubs
along with lots of pollen to clean up!
I wish you a most beautiful Spring day and a fabulous weekend!!
