Wooden Candle Holder


When I ask you last week what use you would find for this wooden holder I got all kinds of good answers. Here are a few: mail holder, shoe polish and brushes holder, a holder for knives, and a candle holder. One of you even suggested a more decorative idea, like putting small canning jars with flowers in it.
I really liked all of the ideas and there is a possibility that I may eventually use all of them! You know how I'm constantly changing things out.
 My own original thought was to fill the holder with candles since it looks like a Colonial candle holder I've seen in old drawings from that period.

 I did like Liz's idea of the more decorative option too. So I tried it dressed out for Fall. Kind of cute this way. Certainly more colour!
Now I need to find a place to hang it in this very small kitchen of mine.

I've switched out the Spring bird plate for my cottage plate that is more in line with the Fall colours.

I love the verse on this little plate. It always reminds me of Paul speaking in Philippians 4:11
Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content.
New King James Version
Contentment, an aspiration of mine, for sure.

I can't let you get away today without showing you my middle son's latest family photo.

Double and Trouble are expecting a new addition to their family in March. This is going to make an even ten for us with grandchildren!
That's the latest here for now....
Hoping your weekend is a blessed one!
Thank you for dropping by-Kim



  1. Lots of potential with that great piece. Lovely family photo.


  2. I like the arrangement in the holder, but the family photo, specially the little guys through the palings, my pick for today. Definitely ones to treasure.

  3. I like the candle holder with fall things in it. Your family is exciting a new baby is on the way. I see you have a redhead there too. I hope you have a lovely fall weekend.

  4. You could use it later for all the Seasons. That come on the calendar. I like the Fall for sure. Great idea that was suggested by Liz..

  5. Congratulations on the new grand baby.

  6. Nice arrangement, love it. Congrats on the baby, sweet.Blessings Francine.

  7. Oh what nice news! An even ten sounds lovely. Suppose that you'll have an even dozen one day? Awfully good looking folks and Double and Trouble are adorable!

    Unlikely that clever you needed suggestions, though you did get some great ones. It sure looks cute and seasonal now!

  8. Kim, I love the little verse on the sweet. Your son and his family are so nice looking. I love that red my g.son Jake is a red haired lad. Blessings to all of you, Susie

  9. Love the family photos! They are great! I like the saying on the plate and bible verse. Being content is worth striving for.

  10. Those two boys are cutie pies! And now a sibling, how exciting for all of you!

    I adore your Cottage of Content plate, isn't that exactly what it's all about? In a nutshell!

  11. What a beautiful family!! Thanks for stopping by my blog. I am so pleased to make your acquaintance :0! I look forward to browsing your blog and catching up with you. Blessings my new friend!

  12. Great family picture! Congrats on another grandchild in the make! You seem too young to have nearly 10 grandchildren already! I'm glad you're finding ways to use the new box!
