beautiful and oh so cheap

I've always taken glass and placed it withen more glass. Today I found this lovely bulb cover (2.00). I looked for more but this was a lone ranger.

I had accidently purchased one of those glass candle holders with a pattern rather than plain.
I wanted them to match
the larger glass candle holders evryone has been boasting about.  See the pictures below.
I placed the bulb cover inside the glass container and then placed another smaller glass candle holder inside that (3 glass sections all together).  When I lit the votive it created such a sweet soft glow.  Don't you just love it.
This entire project was a total of 3.oo not including the candle which I already had on hand from a past purchase.  I wish I could have found one more of those bulb covers... oh well.

This is for the glass candle holders everyone has been screaming in delight about from the Dollar Tree.  The ones from William Sonoma?  This is a future project that I'll post pictures of later.

My photo
I love shabby,used,chipped,white,old,vintage, antique,junky gently loved stuff. I would love to dumpster dive but I could get a citation from the county. I adore my dogs, my grand kids and bathing in my tub outside. I am sensitive, eager to make friends although self conscious about it. I am faithful and very very generous at heart. I cry over stuff sentimental and sweet. I adore April Cornell clothing (although I can't afford her stuff)and anything sheer and vintage and loose. I'd live in my pj's and never ever wear a bra again. I love the beach and dancing in public places with my grand darlings and day time babies. I adore my kids and love my hubby although I could kill him a time or two. Yard sales and thrift stores are my died and gone to heaven activities. I love to spend money on these but usually am broke.
