Candles & More Candles

Happy Friday!! It's supposed to be a hot humid day today so I'm going to do a quick update this morning so I can hit some yard sales before it gets unbearable. 

I should just stay home cuz I have so much stuff already, but those undiscovered goodies are calling to me. LOL

Speaking of goodies, I'm gonna show you what I worked on yesterday after cleaning out some cabinets.

I had a bunch of votive candles, so I grubbied a pile of them up. After making them all pretty, I tied some sweet annie to them some jute. These I put in little pans that I found while cleaning.

More candles... This time I added them to little paddles. These started out as drink coasters. I painted them different colors & added the candles. Love them!

Then I came across this little watering can I bought for around .25 & added some flowers that were left over from another project.

I have challenged myself to  use up at least one item a day that I have stashed away in a cubby. I did pretty good yesterday. Now I have to figure out what I want to use up today. Hey, I just might find something at the yard sales today (then I won't have to open those cubby doors).

Enjoy your day!!
