This Thrift Store Score isn’t actually new at all. I found these at an estate sale when Isobel was an infant and I’ve kept them tucked away in my stash, saving them for Isobel’s future big girl room, only to not use them when the time came. While I’m no minimalist by a long shot, I do prefer a simple, uncluttered look, so I didn’t use these. No matter, I thought. I’ll just save them in my stash for her room’s next incarnation, or maybe I’ll sell them.
I love how ridiculously ornate these plastic golden candle holders are. My mom thought I was absolutely ridiculous for buying them, and they are kind of ridiculous, but at the time I had my filter on for just the sort of fancy, overly-wrought stuff I would have loved as a child. I would have loved this completely and unironically as it fit my notion of fairytale decor. Pair this with the mirror I hung in Isobel’s room and I would have been in little girl heaven.
Maybe I am still that little girl because while I was rifling through my stash looking for an item to send off I came across them and wondered how they’d look in our bedroom.
I love them. I don’t even think they need candles. In fact, I think they are probably better without candles.
Isobel, noticing I was taking photos of my bed, decided I should take photos of her in her bed, snuggling Funshine and clearly sleeping. Clearly.
