A little cool project for you...

Hi Bloggies!  Sure hope you are keeping cool in all this heat.

Here's a nice and easy indoor project for you.  Just take an old brass 
candlelabra, some thrift store tea cups and saucers, some white spray paint and a little bit of bling from crystals, old jewlery or whatever you might have in your stash.
Put it all together and you'll get this....

 I found the candle holder and the tea cups/saucers at Habitat Restore...

The bling on the top is a small chandelier ornament.

Pretty cute....don't you think?????

Okay, it's the weekend and a new week coming up.  So, get out there and create, make, write, photograph, paint, repurpose, bake, sew and find something wonderful and share with the rest of us.

I'm joining the party at Coastal Charm's Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays.

Very pretty, Sissie! I love the bling you've added. That would look great lit up with some candles in the teacups at night. Very romantic looking!

Good morning Sissie,
Oh, swoon, swoon... What an adorable creation! You were thinking of me when you made this, weren't you? *wink wink*
I love the white and the bling! Now if I could just find something similar; add some votives, I'd be all set! Thanks for sharing and have a fab weekend.

The Porcelain Rose said...

Just darling! I LOVE it! Creative minds think alike.
I made one similar with vintage floral tea cups. I had a bunch of cups w/o saucers and couldn't throw them away. I put together a selection of coordinating pieces and made a candle cup sconce. I found the candle sconce at the flea market for $5 and the cups and saucers over time. I used both vintage and new crystals. I sold it when I shared a booth with a girlfriend at a local flea market. LOL! Wishing I had it back now! You've motivated me to make another.
Thanks for sharing.
I always enjoy my visits here.
Will visit again soon.

I think that is adorable! White and blingy--just how I like things! All this heat is probably going to effect creativity--but your ending words always inspire me!

Debbie said...

Very cute, Sissie!
Love all the bling.

It's totally cute, and looks like a really fun project where you could be creative in so many ways! I see those candelabras at the thrift shop all the time, and reluctantly pass them by, because i need to pare down my "stuff". But now, you've given me an idea! I assume you used glue, what kind??


Lady Pamela said...

I am in L-O-V-E with this project. I already have the candelabra and bling. Just need some white tea cups. How did you attach the tea cups?
