Late Winter Centerpiece

After a few days of above freezing weather I was feeling a bit of the Spring Fever. To help alleviate the symptoms, I've begun to add a few lighter touches to my home. First stop, dining room table. Remember my winter arrangement? As this table is our family's main eating place, I have to make the arrangement simple enough to remove quickly when it is time to set the table.

I started with a metal pedestal I found at a thrift store for $1.00. I added a chunky whitewashed frame that I purchased previously at the thrift store. I placed an off-white candle in the middle and surrounded it with blue/aqua/clear sea glass. Nestled around it is a scarf that I got as a Christmas present. The scarf is very easily snagged so I don't wear it as an accessory - my house wears it!

Here's a side view.

I think my candle is leaning. I need to make an adjustment. Just pretend it is straight.

Check out The Shabby Nest's Frugal Friday Party for some great decorating ideas.
