A couple months ago, I walked into a local thrift shop on a busy Saturday afternoon and found these darling topiaries for $3 each. I couldn't believe nobody had snatched them up yet. I was so excited!
I wasn't crazy about the spray-painted plastic faux clay pots. But I hadn't done anything with them yet.
From a thrift shop today I brought home a chippy white metal pail....and set the topiary inside.
Voila! It's just what I was looking for.
I've had these birch candle holders out since last winter.
I love their lodgey, cozy look. They went well with the pine cones that decorated every square foot of my place over the holidays. I had so many pine cones it's possible I could have been turned into the National Forestry Service for being a pine cone hoarder. If there was such a thing.
While out treasure hunting for All That Jazz Vintage, I keep finding cream shabby candle holders. I had one of these in our space but pulled it out and took it home for myself so that I'd have three mismatched pieces.
I kept the brown embossed leaf candles on them for now, even though they are fall-ish and a little big for these holders. I have never burned them, but I love the texture and color of the candles.
It's so fun when found goodies help a home "come together!"
