I think if I added a string of fake pearls and a pink candle...that might work...
Maybe I could use it for a platter and serve cookies on it?!
Or, another holder for my costume jewerly??

You can't tell now, but the wooden candle holder, at the bottom of this piece was brown and full of dripped wax at one point!  A little cleaning and some white paint...and a pretty plate..and oh la la and beautiful shabby piece with many potential uses was born!

Pattern or design used: My own design - Urban Iron Art and Newtiques

I had a great time. My husband and I took our neice and nephew to the Milwaukee museum for a sleep over. What a blast!!! (and no, nothing came to life as the movie "Night at the Museum" showed.... Adam (6 yrs old) was a little worried about that at first). :o)

I would LOVE to be served some cookies on this... oatmeal chocolate chip perhaps? Posted: 2:06 am on May 5th
