This weekend I came across a beautiful metal candelabra at HomeGoods. It was begging for some embellishment. I stuffed the open cavities with some sheet moss. I added some cute felted wool mushrooms to the bottom and hollowed out a spot in the middle of the candelabra for a miniature nest complete with eggs and feathers. A nod to all our feathered friends in the yard. I'm not sure if it will end up with candles or not. I like it without right now.

a good fit. Note the felted mushroom in a jar.
