Christmas lights

Christmas is just around the corner now and I've started looking over some of our decorations. I wanted some new lights so I bought this five-branched candlestick. It was dirt cheap (and so it should be cause it's not the prettiest and most exciting one around) :)



But after painting it, stamping it, distressing it and decorating it with flowers, ribbons, sparkles and a tiny Whiff of Joy charm it's ready for my living room. :)

It's also ready for the challenge over at Whiff of Joy with the colour combo brown, orange and ivory and it suits the Creatalicious challenge with something for Christmas.
