I found these perfectly chippy sconces at a junk sale last year...cleaned out their all the grungy old electrical wires and added candles.  Now they can live a "new life" at my house.

Your grouping of 3 looks fabulous and its so much fun to turn trash into treasures isn't it!
btw, which necklace of mine did you buy this past sale?
Just curious what tugged at your heart. Sorry I missed you at the sale, but had some serious junking going on with Junk Market sisters. Maybe next year, you and your sister can plan ahead and join us for a hoe down good time.
