more tea cup candles & my wall of mirrors

hi and happy weekend to you all!
i visited a church garage sale this morning and came home
with some lovely goodies including these 2 awesome mirrors.
you may remember a while back when i did my first mirror display
on this wall. you can see what it looked like here.
i decided to expand my display and here's how it turned out.
i think it makes the ceiling seem higher and the room bigger.
i hate the air conditioner. what an eye sore.
when we paint this room, i'd love to paint over it.
has anyone done that before?
i couldn't imagine it could look any worse than it does now!

a crisp white fluffy chenille bedspread found at the church garage sale too
and some vintage linen. the floral sheets are a little worn, so i
plan to cut them up and make some cute carry bags.
another batch of teacup candles made this morning.
great for stocking fillers, secret santa or teacher pressies.
i used soy wax and a lovely floral scented oil.
the house is smelling so good!
you can see how i made them here if you would like to give it a go.

  1. Kate you always do so well on your hunts!!! Your wall of mirrors certainly has expanded, but looks great :)

  2. Love your wall of mirrors and your tea cup candles. I'd like to try making some but first I need some tea cups. I'll see if we can find them at the Aladdin's Cave market. Are you still going?
