Re-Purposed ViNtaGe LANTERN Centerpiece...


~* ViNtaGe Lanterns *~
Not as commonly found as you would think...

I'm ALWAYS am On-The-Hunt
 for ViNtaGe Lanterns
And Rarely come across them...  This was actually the upper housing of a "one-time" electrified piece... I removed 2 of the glass panels to allow better viewing and air circulation for a votive candle...



 I used an Old SaLvaGed Architectural
 Column Base as a Prop for the Lantern...
  Being F*A*L*L* ~ a hint of  "Bittersweet Berries"
 added just the right amount of color to "Make-It-PoP"!*!*!

This **Keeper~FiNd** is soon to be our 
Kitchen Table CenterPiece...
**********
Come the HoLiDays ~ I'll switch-out the adornments
 with "greens & red berries...



 I LoVe a Natural PaTiNa 
that only time can produce
 ~ and most certainly, 
THIS PIECE HAS IT!*!*!

Crusty... Rusty... W*H*I*T*E Votive CaNdeLaBra...

I LoVe "Votive-Style"
 CaNdeLaBras...
I don't know if you're like me, but I usually just use my 
Candle-Stick Candelabras "for-show" ~ 
Rarely lighting them, unless I'm near by...
I feel good about actually using
 *Glass Votive-Style Candles* 
*Sooooo easy to replace the candles...
*Safe from dripping on furniture
*Drafts rarely affect the flame 




Weather is Just AwEsoMe here
 in the Midwest Today!!!
