yard art

My fella made this these candles.  The large one was made from scrap wood that he finished with a transparent ebony stain - it could hold a large candle or even a small plant.  The candles inside it are made from fence posts that are wired together with barbed wire; holes are drilled in the top for tea lites.  I wasn't sure where I was going to use this but it seemed to fit perfectly with the weathered lawn furniture down by the water.  (The top needs a piece of old hardware but I haven't chosen one yet located my box of bits and pieces yet.)


Since my last post there's been an interesting turn of events - we put our house on the market and have accepted an offer.  If you don't see a new post for awhile you'll understand.  Also our wifi at the cottage and been quite iffy this season and consequently I haven't been able to read and comment on blogs - my regrets.

everything has beauty but not everyone can see it - confucious

Great that you could sell your house so quickly.
Such a nice candle holder made of old wood. And I can easily see it with flowers, too.

Very talented man, that husband, just like his wife! So are you going to live at the cottage year round, then? I'm glad it didn't take you long to sell. The waiting is the worst part.
