I went to Anthropologie yesterday to look at the new displays. I never go in there for the clothes (well not that they would fit me anyway) - just the decorating elements. On previous visits I had admired a cup and saucer set and when I went in yesterday it was half off! Oh joy! I'm going to use it as a candle holder - it is translucent white with a silver design and edging. I think the candlelight glowing through will be very pretty.
I have a thing for candlelight and for using found objects as candle holders. I have a set of pressed glass wineglasses that I have lined up on the window sill to use as votive holders. It's very pretty when you walk up to the front door and see them all there, lit up and sparkly.
