~Candles and a Sampler~

I wanted to share with you these wonderful tin candle holders I picked up at The Olde Homestead in Mt. Vernon, Illinois. I love them! They also have a hook on the back and can be hung from a chair or a door. I decided to place mine on the end tables in the basement. I love how the color of the candle matches some of the color in the chairs.

Take a look and tell me what you think!

I also wanted to show you another one of the samplers that I designed and stitched. You know how much I love saltbox houses. Until the day that I can live in one, this will hopefully tied me over.

Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope you will continue to come back as often as possible. Don't forget to look for Yesterday Once More on facebook. I would love for you to stop by there too!
