A small votive sits in a chippy religious statue on the dining room half wall. Being chalkware, it's very heavy so Baby isn't able to knock it off (yet).
The scrollwork of the fire screen, silhouetted against the candles that sit inside the fireplace.
Another old chalkware statue, a grey & white kitty, rests on the hearth.
Candlelight illuminates the cherub faces on the cactus planter.
Prisms dance around the candlelight in this beautiful candleholder, a gift from my good friend, Jill.
A small votive surrounded by button jars, a white bird, and my vintage rose lamp.
One of the two prism'd fleur-de-lis candleholders that flank the fireplace. These were one of my first purchases when I switched over from a primitive to cottage decor about 7-8 years ago.
A small Mary statue...
...and a small St. Theresa planter stand guard at the "parakeet cage" on top of the jelly cupboard in a corner of the dining room.
The variety of small votives gave off just enough light to keep us from bumping into - or tripping over - things while the lights were out. Thankfully, the power was restored just as it was starting to get quite chilly in the house. The other morning it was 8 below when we woke! And we were hit with another snowstorm last night (over 12" of snow), so I'll post photos of that soon! Come on, spring! We are sooooooo ready!
I'm linking up to Show & Tell Friday at My Romantic Home so be sure to stop by and see Cindy and all the other bloggers sharing participating this week!
