It was only $8.00, and is such a great piece.
Just look at the glass cork.
I now have 9 pieces of this and love having it in my china cabinet. I have spent a total of $16.00 on this new collection.
My other finds are a bottle and a vase. This green bottle caught my eye because of it's shape.
My favorite piece though is this wonderful bud vase made of blue, diamond cut glass.
My new favorite thing, this vase.....
I just love this piece. It was also $1.21. I haven't been able to find out anything about this piece, but the color is divine.
HOW AM I USING THESE???
I gave my mantel a new design!!
It has been like this for a long time, and I have loved the quiet colors and the simplicity, but I decided to give it a little punch. It looked like this much longer than is normal for my house.
I love the shutters and candle sticks, so I kept some of those. I removed the clock, and brought in this turquoise frame, I've had for a few years.
For the right side of the mantel, I brought this pale turquoise bottle, also a GW find from the hall tree, added the lighter turquoise insulator, and another of the candlesticks.
This white burlap wreath I made was also kept, and I hung it inside the frame.
Here is the total mantel reveal.
I found this awesome candle stick at GW also, and knew it matched the ones I already had. It's taller and I grouped it with 2 others on the hearth.
Here you can see the other candlesticks.
I'm loving the new layered look on the mantel.
