I like decorating, fashion and creating. I would redecorate my house every year if I could. That is not even a possibility. What I do enjoy, is to take flowers from my limited gardens and use them to dress up my rooms and my table top. Right now, my pink and red knock-our roses are blooming in abundance. Since it has been such a hot, sticky summer, I can appreciate them more when I bring them inside.
At the Dollar Tree, I purchased two clear cylinders and a jar of Decorator's Choice Liquid Marbles. I used two candles from my box of emergency candles and two of my glass pillar candle holders. I put the glass holders in the cylinders, poured the liquid marbles in to cover the glass holder, added the candles and a few fresh flowers. Cost to me...3.00 since I already had the box of candles.
My decorating fix has been taken care of for a bit. I will light the candles at dinner even if it is just my husband and I, and our dinner of salads. Afterall, he is the most important person to me.
If you buy a bottle of these liquid marbles, you can use them so often. To keep them fresh, you fill the bottle with water and allow it to soak for 4 - 6 hours. Drain off the excess water and reuse as desired. Don't you think they add beauty to this simple glass cylinder? They have the look of crystal marbles, only prettier. I know I shared these little gems before on this blog, but I thought you might like another centerpiece idea.
