One Last Holiday Give-a-way

We are giving away these wonderful, original scent, hand poured soy candles that we made with our own  little hands and lots of love.  We used these vintage, green glass pharmaceutical jars from the 1930's.  The jars were old/new stock from a long ago closed drug store. We were able to score a couple of cases of them.  We were so excited with our find and so very pleased with ourselves in making candles with them.  They were a hit....I guess other people loved them as much as we did!   We have sold out of them, except for these last two hold-outs.....so we thought we'd give them away for the New Year!

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on our blog by midnight on January 3rd and we will pick and post a winner on Tuesday January 4th. 

Here are some samples of our Christmas Candles 
All hand poured, original scent, 100% soy
You can purchase any of our candles by clicking HERE

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays & a Happy New Year to All

Lighting, Lighting, Everywhere!

Everywhere I went this week I ran into fabulous lighting!
Look at this industrial hanging light I found at a yard sale. It's brand new and it was only $12.00. It had a red grille so I just sprayed it with galvanized spray paint. What a Find!

I just love this lamp... I found it in with a bunch of junk at a barn sale
What a great industrial office look

Mid-Century Modern Lucite lamps with huge handmade shades

An exquisite chandelier with a fabulous green patina. I added lots of crystals....Magnificent!

Check this out!!!! Faux Antler Chandelier.....Classy!
Believe it or not....it came out of a storage unit

This came from Barnlight Electric Company
Inside/Outside for 39.95....what more could you ask for!

I was so happy with my finds that I really got a fire under me and managed to get them all rewired, hung and lit this week. They are all hanging in my barn and for sale.
