Lantern Vignette

Long weekends spent inside 
during the frigid winter put me on projects like this!
It was only 15 degrees today!
This lantern (from Hobby Lobby)
has been in my possession since 
last October but I didn't have 
a plan for it.
Last night a friend sent
a picture of a lantern vignette
she designed (which sparked 
my weak memory banks).  
I had forgotten all about it!
So I put together a small
arrangement in a flower
pot and set it inside.
I intended to put a flameless candle 
in there but everything was too big.
I did a little internet searching
and found a 3 pc. set of these
small flameless candles at
Bed Bath and Beyond. I buzzed
in to town to get it!  It
came as a set with a tray and
stones. With my 20% off
coupon I walked out for $8.47
for the set.  I figure for the three
flameless candles that's not bad!
What's cool about these is,
after you turn them on
you can "blow" on them
and they turn on or off!
I am leaving the door
open on it because it 
just looks better that way!
I hung a tassel on it for a
little extra pizzaz! I don't know if
you can see it but the sides have
curved glass! I thought that
was so unique!
Now I'm off to work on
an arrangement for a 
footed bowl.  I got inspired
by a picture in a catalog 
from Ballard Designs.

What are you up to???

  4. Gosh Liz, Your lantern is sooo pretty. Great idea to use the flameless candle. Who knew you could blow on it to turn it off and on. Neat! The tassel and curved glass work great together.
    You mentioned you had it since last Oct...I have a huge one (28 inches high) I bought several weeks ago and need to do something with it. Thanks for the great ideas.

  5. Such a pretty display, Liz! I love flameless candles. They're so versatile and so much safer than the real thing.
    Have a lovely Sunday,
