Celebrate the season or light

Hello everyone hope your day is going well.

At Anything but a card you can create something using the theme light or to celebrate the season.

I will be using this as a table decoration at Christmas and it sure celebrates light as well so should qualify for the challenge. I took pictures of it outside and then in the dark when I had lit the candle. This is just so simple and after it has been used for the table I can just use everything as it was before. I started out with a very nice dish that is pearlised and raised the candle up on a piece of metal I found in the shed. Then I raided my odds and ends box that has lots of bits of old jewels and beads in it. These I arrange around the candle to catch the light.

with the candle lit in the dark-looks better in real life but difficult to photograph.

The gold beads are on some long pins with a jewel on the top.

That's it really-easy peasy.

Love Chrissie xx

  7. I love candles so this one really appeals to me Chrissie. It looks fantastic in the dark and I love how the light catches all the sparkle from your cleverly arranged items in the dish. Sorry I haven't been to you for a while. I've been ill and I'm now playing catch up! Also thought I followed you but clearly not - I do now!
