Flat for rent and a WINNER!

First of all I HAVE to add a disclaimer. The lighting here was so awful when I took these pictures,
but I didn't have a choice so I had to settle.  Whew...got that out of the way. Now on to fun stuff. :)

I decided it was time for a major redo on my long kitchen shelf and this is what I came up with.
I would love your opinions. Sometimes when I get something finished I really like it until I
look at the pictures over and over and then I wonder. ha!!

zinc pots from Belgium aren't just for planting anymore...

I always have to add candles in some form because I love candles.

This is on the other side of the window. {the long shelf is on the left hand side
and this is on the right. I know kinda lopsided, but is is what it is}
I added these towels to a candle sconce.   Guess what Sandi managed to do after this
photo was taken?? Yep , that's right. Can't leave well enough alone. I was messing
around with the sconce and some of the melted wax dripped down on my towel.
I was not a happy camper, but not surprised at all that I did that. :)

I found the flat for rent sign when I went antiquing last week. Love it!
So is this display a keeper or is the window too long for the shelf??


I bet you are wondering what this is all about?? No??  You scrolled clear down to the bottom before you
even read the post, didn't you?? I know !! I have done that before too and then went back up and read the
whole post. It is okay...you are forgiven. lol.

the ball rolling so to speak.

Hoping you all had a wonderful Valentines day. I sure did and I am very thankful for a hubby who

Oh my gosh! I am so excited Sandi. I have never won anything before. I love the dress and was so happy to be introduced to the Shabby Apple. I'm sure I'll be shopping there in the future as I love their collections. Thank you so much. Also, I love the window on your shelf and especially the zinc pots and mercury glass candlesticks (a favorite of mine!)

I think it all looks beautiful and its a keeper. I had to laugh when I read about the wax dripping on the towel--sounds like something I would do!

This is a great look! The zinc is terrific. If you have any wax left in your fabric you can iron it completely out by placing the fabric between two brown paper sacks. Go over it with a warm iron until the paper absorbs all the wax. Then wash. Like it was never there!
