Thrift store treasures: Part 2
A few days ago I showed you one of my thrift store finds and promised to show the rest in my next post, but promptly forgot to do so! Here are my other fun finds from that rainy day. These fabulous mercury glass candle holders!
I had been drooling over the pretty photos of beauties like these on other blogs for years, but rarely found any and when I did they were quite pricey! Last Christmas my sweet husband and boys bought me the two pretty ones you see below and they found them for only $3 and $4!! And the ones I found at the thrift store last weekend were only $1.50 for the small one and $2.00 for the large ones!! So I have a gorgeous mercury glass candle holder collection for a total of only $12.50!! Now I just need some white candles. I think they would be so pretty on my hutch for Christmas. I found a photo of my Christmas hutch from a few years ago. I had totally forgotten that I had decorated it this way and I love it! I plan to do the same look this year, but with my new candle holders!
