Easter Apothecary

Do you see what I see???

I found all of this in one trip to Goodwill-3 ugly candlesticks, 2 real pewter cordial cups, and a milk glass vase. (Plus one 50 year old Standard rubber stamp holder with no rust!-not pictured) Score! That ugly orangish brown candlestick is like plastic.  The other two are ceramic.  Look what I made with them:

Recognize those candlesticks?  No?  That's cause I spraypainted 'em.  Just a little trick I learned from my blog buddies: here.  I guess it is hard to tell from the pictures, but there are glass hurricanes on top of the candlesticks.  Inside are cards that spell out "HOP" (only three-letter Easter word I could think of-not cause I love the movie-haven't even seen it) and some crinkled up vintage dictionary paper. 
More to come...

**editor's note (he-he that's me!):  Sorry-you caught me-I forgot to say the letters were not stickers.  At least not until I ran them through my Xyron sticker maker.  I cut them out with my Making Memories Slice machine.  The cardstock is also Making Memories-Passport collection (it is printed with postcards, but I liked the color scheme for Easter.)  I already had the little feather boa.  I think it came from Dollar Tree.


  1. Thanks for the link back! This is such a super cute idea! Totally lovin' the blue feather trim.
