Nifty Thrifty Thursday

I am joining Leigh over at http://lbratina.blogspot.com/ this week for Thrifty Thursday. Thanks Leigh!
 
Last weekend we had a little thrifty luck.

We found a nifty candle holder, added a couple of mismatched glass sconces and a couple of wee little pink candles. All together the look was right around three dollars.


The twisted wire reminds me of the bracelets we made in high school in our jewelry making class. In Beaverton, Oregon, in the late '70s, we had jewelry making as an elective in high school. Had it before lunch and stagecraft after lunch. The '70s were great!

Okay, now see how it looks tucked away on our inside windowsill. Like it?

The lamp is sitting on the radiator cover. Not sure if that will have to be moved or not after we get the boiler de-winterized and fired up.  This window looks out onto the little sun porch. 
Happy Thrifty Thursday!
