A "candle-ier" and some thingamabobs...

A rusty chandelier and some votives equals a sweet sight in my kitchen.
Vintage receipt holders (aka thingamabobs) make a nice perch for wine glass charms.  A cork added to the top eliminates the sharp point.
As well as glass charms, receipt holders also nicely display a copy of a photo.
In my kitchen this wine central vintage cart is complete with a minnow bucket for chilling a bottle of wine (with snow!).

Who wants to look at a sink full of dishes?!  A sweet sight in my kitchen is this vintage metal cart used as what I call "wine central".  Hanging above it is a candle chandelier with votives, hanging from an old weathered bracket.  A wood tool caddy now serves as a wine glass caddy.  A minnow bucket is used to chill the wine (with snow-a-plenty!).  And then there are the "thingamabobs"...vintage receipt holders that hold wine charms and a photo.  What dishes...I didn't see any dishes.

Thanks for another great project!
