Wall Sconces

Hello everyone!

Hope you all had a good weekend.  It was so nice and sunny here.  It was hard to say goodbye to a nice weekend like that.

I wanted to share the item that I found at the antique mall with you.  

I found these old looking (but they're probably not) candle wall sconces.

  
I have been wanting some wall sconces for a while now, but haven't been able to find exactly what I was looking for without a huge price tag.  Until I saw these!


I love how they match the frame on the mirror so well and even compliment the style of the mirror.


I'm not going to add candles to them though.  I like them empty.

I love how they stick out from the wall giving some added dimension to the space.


Here is a better close-up.


And I couldn't leave without sharing my latest love, my flowering cherry tree right outside my dining room window.  This is the first year that it has done this well.  I think it's finally mature enough to show all of it's flowers now.  I recall getting it several years ago for Mother's Day.


It has finally gotten tall enough where I notice it from the street.  It compliments the left side of our house perfectly.  I wish I had one more in the backyard too. Maybe we will plant one when the swing set comes down.  That should be in the near future.

Can you believe it is almost Easter?!  Time is flying by.

Thanks for stopping by.

Love the sconces. They are perfect. Your tree is so pretty. My neighbors have two in there back yard that I am enjoying from the sun room.

Very pretty, Kelly! They do go great with the mirror. I need to add something to either side of the mirror in our dining area. I was kicking around the idea of sconces, but I'm not one for putting candles in them either. Although, I would probably put something in there - moss balls, maybe?

The sconces compliment the mirror so well.
In the springtime, I really miss our old yard. We had dogwoods, redbud and flowering cherry. Note to self... plant at least one of the arose mentioned. Yours is beautiful Kelly.

I have a pair I would like to paint like yours... What AS paint do you think would give me that look? I love them!

Susie said...

Kelly, The sconces finish off that pretty seating area. I love how it all looks together. I would be tempted to cut some of those pretty flowers, at least a wee bunch. xoxo,Susie

NanaDiana said...

Those are great looking sconces! You didn't have to paint them or anything? The work perfectly with the mirror. I had some that I put those little flicker candles down inside them-you couldn't see them looking at them but they were fun lit up at night.

YOur cherry is gorgeous! It is fun to see things get to a size where they really have some impact! xo Diana

Love the pops of gray against the light gray walls. My walls about that color and I'm thinking this is exactly what I am going to do. Yelp! Just as soon as I can get some paint. Love the sconces!

Wanda said...

What a perfect addition to your already lovely wall.

Your cherry tree is just what that window needed, isn't it!! Absolutely lovely.

You did good.!!!

I love your sconces, they go so well with the mirror. I too have a cherry tree in my yard but I've only had it for 2 years so it didn't have many flowers on it last year. The cockatoos had a great time chomping at it which didn't help either. I can't wait till it looks as gorgeous as yours! take care, Maryann

Katie Mansfield said...
