Glass Candle Corner Evolution

Hey check out the Cloche Party @
http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/2011/03/welcome-to-spring-cloche-party.html

Sat. the 12th..


Do you beat a subject into the ground?  
I know I do!  I've been playing with this 
corner theme since Christmas. 
You see...I have a thing for these glass 
candle holders...I started with a few 
probably 8 years ago, and kept adding
on since then. On and off they've 
appeared in my decorating. 
After Christmas when I had found a 
couple more pieces that I used during 
the holidays I decided to create a cluster
in this corner on the cabinet.  
First I'm showing the end result...then 
I'll walk you through 
my evolution of changes!
The following picture is where I was at with it right after Christmas
I borrowed these pictures from another room..
Previously there were two pictures of
my kids that I have relocated
These two pictures have been floating looking for a new
spot for a little while now- but I was sure they wouldn't fit
here but to my surprise they did!
I messed around with the arrangement, trying
different candles to see what would show
up best...
Then I decided to get these green candles 
to pull the green that's in the background 
of the print (which you can't really see here) 
I figured continuity was the way to go...
plus the decorative candles with the gold 
on them actually have that green in 
the design too
I set a gold frame near it just to see if I
liked that too
So I ordered this glass cloche from Wisteria...
and really didn't have a plan for where
it was to go, but I decided to set it in 
with this group, and
I liked it right away
 Something is gnawing at me, I know I need
to marry the cloche with something
and the dark color in the wood
candle holders seems
like the way to go...soooo
I found this charger on discount at 
Pier 1 Imports 
where the candle holders had come from
and I was very happy with the 
size and color..
I really didn't know what to put inside, so 
I wandered aimlessly at Michaels
and found this little silk arrangement
and then I saw these green rocks
and thought what the heck
maybe this will work!
So this is what I ended up with....what
do you think? 
At a distance
I am stubborn and I don't give 
up on a subject when I get
going on it! 
Perhaps this whole arrangement is a 
bit eclectic, but that's ok -right?
This has always been a spot in my room 
that stumps me as to what to do with
it...It's had many faces
You see I already tweaked it since yesterday!

  5. Such a pretty vignette. I have that cloche with the bird on it, too. You said your followers don't show to you on your blog either. I can see them. That is the way mine was and then last night they were all of a sudden back.

  8. Wow, the addition of the black charger really tied it all together with the candle holders. I know what you mean about trying to get things the way you like in a particular spot in the room. I have that problem with my mantel. You've given me inspiration to look at it again.
