Candle Mold Vase

I think everyone has family stuff that they can't bear to throw out, and yet have no idea what to do with it when they get it. Such is the case with my Great-Grandma Thorp's candle mold that I inherited several years ago when my sister Lynn downsized and moved to Florida. I was much too busy to figure out what to do with it at the time, so I put it in a box and threw it in the attic.

When my husband Jamie started a project last Spring, we had to move a bunch of boxes out of the attic. When the time came to move everything back in, I decided it was the perfect opportunity to do some purging. It was then that I came across the candle mold for a second time.  

Hesitant to kick the can down the road again, I gathered some baby's breath from my studio, and voila, instant dried flower arrangement.

With friends coming to visit, I decided to put the arrangement on the nightstand in the guest room. I think Great-Grandma would have loved it!
