Finding time to indulge in anything but work still eludes me. Even things as mundane as cleaning the house or grocery shopping have become a rare luxury. In fact, my schedule has reached the point where it's time to reassess and regroup. The truth is that this overload is my own fault. I am FINALLY coming to the conclusion that I have to cut back. This weekend I found myself "brain-dead", incapable of having one iota of creative impulse.
Candlelight mesmerizes and adds instant romance. This particular candelabra was a $10 find. Its original finish was brass but I "aged" it with an antiquing kit (available at Michaels Crafts) composed of a base coat, adhesive liquid and gold leaf. I made it for an article about romantic icons for Romantic Country but it wasn't picked. Oh well! Now I have YET one more candelabra. I know some of you will ask about the fabric and the glasses. The fabric is from Jo-Anne's and the glasses from Home Goods (bought last year.)
