Metamorphosis of Sorts

A new week is upon us and that brings the 26Th Metamorphosis Monday. A full day of transformations. It's been "quite" awhile since I've participated. I'm so happy to be joining in this week with a Metamorphosis of sorts.
Now, I hope this qualifies as a Metamorphosis change. Sure hope I don't get kicked out after it's been awhile since I've participated. Some of you may remember this centerpiece from last weeks Tablescape Thursday. With the lights being out for the last 36 hours a gal can't do a whole lot of anything but play can she? :-)
I decided to change out the centerpiece on the dining room table. I started building with the books from last week. Then I added the large hurricane full of faux lemons.
Isn't the metal base just the greatest? This piece is a full 19" tall. I've had it for many years and have used it in many different vignettes.
I then chose to add the metal shaped candle stick holders. I felt like I already had enough height and opted not to put candles on them. I think it worked out pretty good. I felt a little something else was needed so added the clock as well. It was a gift a few years back. Several of you know I have quite the "fetish" for clocks.
Here's a close up for you. The draw opens and I'm sure could hide a treasure or two if you desired. I can also see a vintage hankie or doily peaking over the edge.
I think candles always add a touch of romance or the feel of times gone by. Ummmm we used a few of these the last few hours..lol

Thanks for swinging by to see my idea of a Metamorphosis's type change. I'm off to Susan's to check out all the other wonderful changes. Be sure to click on my sideboard to take you to a full list of participant's. Susan, thanks so much for hosting a fun filled Monday.. hugs ~lynne~

Mornin' Girlfriend...

Just read your sweet note! Ohhh no...I hate hearing that you had bad storms passing through your way and that you were without power for so long! It looks like you had fun though...I love your new vignette!!! What a pretty hurricane...love the lemons! Ohhh...and those gorgeous candleholders...they really are perfect with the hurricane! In fact, what a perfect vignette...you have included the "classic" elements...an inspiration piece, candleholders, old books, a beautiful old clock, and a little fruit! It would make a beautiful painting!!!

Well Dearheart...sure hope that this week is off to a great start for you...I guess just having power is a major improvement, eh?

Love ya Sweetie!
Chari
