Clearly one sounds much nicer than the other.
At least more flattering anyways.
Nobody wants to be considered obsessed with something because of the negative connotation but a collector? Yes, please.
So I’m going to call myself a collector, mkay?
What collection am I talking about?
Specifically brass candlesticks.
You can’t tell in the above picture but this tiny little specimen is my favorite one so far.
I say “so far” because I have no intention of calling my current collection complete.
I haven’t even found a candle for this little sweetie yet because its so petite. Perfection in a tiny package.
You may recognize this location from my recent post when I finished my open kitchen cabinet. Isn’t the patina amazing? I have no intention of removing any of that.
I’m loving this little cream pitcher I just picked up too but that’s another
Check out the square base on this one!
Are you wondering why none of my candlesticks have candles in them? I didn’t really realize this fact until I was adding the photos to this blog post.
There actually is a reason!
I currently have removed the tall tapers from these because I have them all in places where a tall taper can’t fit. Such as in a cabinet shelf. I am in the process of burning down some candles in other candlesticks and when they are short enough to fit in these spaces, I promise I will put candles in them.
Yes, this candlestick is actually leaning. It’s been that way since I found it. I’ve often wondered what made a beautiful, solid, heavy brass candlestick like this one bend like it does.
I like to imagine some sort of wonderful story behind the bend…..
But isn’t it the perfect touch to add to my vintage book and lovely wood duck figurine? Looks like I need a stubby candle for this one too…..hmmmm
I have two just like this but they aren’t actually a set. Believe it or not I got them on completely separate thrifting expeditions. They are really heavy.
See? Here is the other one.
Okay I won’t bore you by showing you a picture of every single brass candlestick I own. These are some favorites.
Suffice it to say I can’t really resist the charm of a gorgeous brass candlestick whenever I come across one in my travels.
The more patina and the more “storied” the look, the more of a weakness I have for them.
And I just thought of something new! I think you have to have a minimum number of something to call it a collection.
I’m definitely a collector!
Okay I will catch y’all later. I need to go look for some more brass candlesticks just to be sure.
