Pink Saturday: DIY candle holder

i so loved candles and when they came a-plenty, some need holders so i can display them better and i don’t have a penny for new ones. instead, i rummaged through the storage and i found indeed some stuffs which i did turned into something useful.

these were stuffs i discarded out of an old chandelier i am currently "revamping"

i attached ornaments to this brass wires that i planned to re-varnish later

what do you think of these crystal-like plastic ornament?

i secure these crystal-like glasses using glue. can you even imagine they were all part of a big chandelier?

now, i glued some pink flowers around my candle. i decided not to overdo the brass holder itself to create a distressed and somehow antique look. did it?

now, i have my candle holder out of an old chandelier with zero dollar spent. and, BEHOLD, a PINK CANDLE!

cross stitching i made for mom

Procrastination is taking a toll on me. I found out that  my unfinished cross stitching projects in the storage has found new denizens: termites! yaiks!

My SIL introduced me to cross stitching in 1993. i was hesitant because i’m sewing lots of baby stuffs, then. when our singer sewing machine broke down, i had the chance to do these simple projects…

a very simple project i gave to my mom

my mom's favorite

Jesus' face in silhouette. mom was in awe when i finished this one.

my work stills hangs above mom's altar...

surely, i missed my mom, who appreciates those simple cross stitches…i am missing the hoops and the needles, too.
