Welcome to Tablescape Thursday, hosted by Susan from Between Naps on the Porch. I'm so happy to be participating this week. Now, I don't actually have a tablescape, but a small vignette.
On this table I've chosen 2 candlesticks made out of concrete. Yes, you read that right, concrete. I've had them a few years now, after sitting outside the patina gets better and better.
I've chosen 2 candles that actually were damaged in the shop. Just turned them around and know one's the wiser. Now, don't you go and tell on me. :-)) Damaged, dinged or even dis-colored candles work outside well. After a while the heat seems to get to them and then they find their way into the trash. But for now, they grace the top of the candlesticks. :-))
To soften the harshness of the old bricks and concrete candlesticks I added a bit of Boston fern. This small size work great outside for tabletop vignettes.
The orb in the center is concrete as well, I've sold them in the shop for a while now. I love the red patina it's taking on.
The small cast iron rooster I've had for quite a while. Up until last weekend it was more of a bronze color. I grabbed the almond spray paint and gave it about 3 coats of paint. Now, it isn't that I didn't like the bronze color, I was just in need of a small change and this did the trick. lol After all it works great on this vignette. :-))
The reflection of lights you're seeing is the shop, we'll take a tour of it again soon. I'm re-doing several display pieces and have added a few things. I'll keep you posted when the next shopping trip will be. :-)) I hope you'll decide to come along.
