Naturally beautiful tealight holders…

This past winter I had my handyman son-in-law make some of our firewood into these!
I love them, but they seemed “winter-y” to me…and I’m in the mood for summer and the sea!  So they are tucked away ready to come back out next fall.
In the meanwhile, I found a piece of driftwood on a trip to the beach, and handyman son-in-law came to the rescue again!
I’m lovin’ my beachy tealight holder to go with last week’s beachy mantel!
Still following,

  1. LOVE IT!! This was an AWESOME idea!!

  2. Great idea, you are so creative!! Love and Blessings

  3. I love this idea! I've been wanting to do it, but can't find the right piece of wood. What a sweet son-in-law you have! :)

  4. Love it Elizabeth! I'm in the mood for the same thing! Gotta love those handy guys!

  5. Very pretty! I love driftwood.

  6. Love your candleholders! Feeling a trip to the beach coming on! My main bathroom is decorated in 'Beach' from our two times pastoring there. It's in my blood!

  7. your son in law should sell them on etsy!! Love them. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Wow he sure is handy! I love this. I also love your blog title. So awesome!

    I'm hosting a blog party on Saturday and I'd love it if you linked up!

  9. LOVE it!! We saw the "wintery ones" all over Etsy last winter. Hopefully for those of us without handy son-in-laws , we'll spot one of these. Or perhaps you and your son in law could open up shop...

  10. What a cool piece! I'll have to keep an eye out for a piece of wood for this project.

  11. You make me want to get out more candles. You sure have a wonderful son-in-law! I look forward to having one of those in the next year or two.

    Hope you're having a blessed Mother's Day!
