Re-Purposed ViNtaGe LANTERN Centerpiece...


~* ViNtaGe Lanterns *~
Not as commonly found as you would think...

I'm ALWAYS am On-The-Hunt
 for ViNtaGe Lanterns
And Rarely come across them...  This was actually the upper housing of a "one-time" electrified piece... I removed 2 of the glass panels to allow better viewing and air circulation for a votive candle...



 I used an Old SaLvaGed Architectural
 Column Base as a Prop for the Lantern...
  Being F*A*L*L* ~ a hint of  "Bittersweet Berries"
 added just the right amount of color to "Make-It-PoP"!*!*!

This **Keeper~FiNd** is soon to be our 
Kitchen Table CenterPiece...
**********
Come the HoLiDays ~ I'll switch-out the adornments
 with "greens & red berries...



 I LoVe a Natural PaTiNa 
that only time can produce
 ~ and most certainly, 
THIS PIECE HAS IT!*!*!
