My Christmas Centerpiece



                                                            Hello everyone,
          I hope you had a good weekend. We enjoyed some family time but also a lovely candlelight advent service at a beautiful little country church.
   A few days ago I found this old mold at the thrift shop and I could see how charming it would look as a Christmas centerpiece ot even just hanging on the wall in the kitchen.
 
                                         You can tell I love it by all the photos I took of it.








                              This is my own mold that I have used for several years for Christmas puddings.

                     You will be seeing more of this as I did a tablescape for later this week.

             We are starting our December with mild temps and rain for a few days.Apparently the prediction is for a milder winter with lots of precipitation-some rain some snow.

Thank you for all your kind words on Our Christmas Bedroom and welcome to new followers and of course    I appreciate all my old ones too.

Enjoy your week!

Carolyn

It's lovely! And, you've given me some inspiration for a little nook in our house. . .was stumped on what I wanted to use for decorating that area, but your use of the molds with candles gives me ideas. . .Thank you! The candelight Advent service must have been special.

Very pretty. Great idea Carolyn. I had a mold similar like yours, but I gave it away. Now I wish I hadn´t ;)

We had snow last week and about 10 cm is now lying on the ground. Temperature is about -10 C and it´s so beautiful outside right now, but I don´t like the cold.

Hugs,
Sanna

Very pretty, Carolyn, I love the molds with the pretty candles in them.
We had rain for two days this week! Everything is very icy, because it's -13 today. Treacherous walking conditions!
