What Do You See

Yesterday, my husband and i went to the good will store nearby us cause i was in the mood for some goodies. We went in and i promised him we were not gonna stay there more than 5 min *he hates staring for hours at smth that he truly just doesn't see it*... well blame me for not being decided over what to choose between one blue fun eclectic tea pot and a white modern one.. i went back and forth with my decision.. i even went on with the craziness and i started combining these tea pots with different fabrics i found in the store, different plates and all kinds of layers .. i was kinda creating an impromptu table arrangement right there in the store.. and while i was at it i didn't even realize how many people were staring at me like i was on crazy pills or something.. when my husband realized that, he came to me and said "honey, we need to make a decision fast".. and i was like come on, gimme some more time.. but when i looked at the cash register.. i knew what he was talking about.. and i was so ashamed.. i put everything back to their place.. stood there in a corner debating over which tea pot i like more.. couldn't decide after half an hour spent there, and eventually i ended up with these babies:



I know they are cute green vintage shots, but i saw something else in them... i thought of them like maybe they can become some sort of candle holders.. do you see it too now??? i hope so , 'cause i tried explaining an imaginary table arrangement with these two cuties as the main piece to my husband and he was still looking at me like.. "yeah honey, it sounds cute".. haha poor guy:) :)

Anyway.. what do you guys think?? Can my weird tastes become a nice chic reality.. i mean would these shots look nice and fab with some white tall skinny candles in it on a simple yet romantic table set?? DO you guys see what i see in these two?? Or if not, what other purposes would you use them for??? What do you see when you look at them? Pwease do share your thoughts!!!

I think they would be lovely with a white tulip in them... or any flower...or a shot of something! ;)

Thanks for stopping by... Great question... You've got me wondering and I am going to turn it into a post, I think!

The candle idea works. Or some flowers cut to size.

Those shot glasses are so great! I think they would look great with a candle!

I think the handle reminds me of old lanterns so a candle might be quite fitting.

P.S. I too take FOREVER to make a decision in a store. Usually I have to look at every single thing in the store (even stuff I don't want) 3 times before I can make a decision with some confidence that I haven't missed something better.


And yes, I do know I'm a weirdo. ;)

Candles, flowers or whatever. They are keepers. You have a great eye.

They look wonderful. A nice cup of something and reading a book is great.

Husbands....meh, what do they know?! =]

I can totally see them as vintage looking candle holders! Or chic vases as previous bloggers suggested. Or (if you drink wine) a spot for old wine corks!

Evy said...

Yes, I can definitely see it! You can even "dress" them in a white spiraled wire to hold the top of a skinny candle, maybe... or use them as they are, because they are beautiful!

I think they would be fabulous candle holders. They almost look like an old lantern!

Never mind what to do with the pretty shot glasses. I'm still in awe that your husband actually went into the store and shopped with you willingly. Nice, definitely a keeper.
