details on the doily candle holders and buttons

Today I am sharing the detail of the most recent doily candle holders I made because I think they turned out lovely. I know that with vintage handmade doilies they all will gorgeous, so I promise that will try to stop boring you with photos of them

For those who may have not seen these before and who may be interested in making their own, here is the tutorial.

I've got a button!!

The buttons were super simple I super easy instructions for them from A Heart for Home.

Time Travel Thursday at Brambleberry Cottage



  1. What a great idea!

  2. I know I saw those before, but I had to come back and comment again. They're simply beautiful, I especially love the last one with the angled vase. I would have NEVER thought to put one on a vase like that!

    Nice job on the buttons!

  3. I like the button idea, I may use that on a site or two. Sorry is a kind thing to say, I wish the girl who hit me could say it. She is messed up in the head from what I heard her saying at the accident scene and in the ambulance.

    She takes no personal responsibility. Or was not at the time. Start PT on Thursday for how long who knows ... :/

  6. How pretty is that? I especially like the first one. It looks like this Norwegian hardanger my Grandma used to do. I bet we even have some of those pieces. Thanks for the idea.
