  1. Lora, I Love the idea of Christmas Tree stands as decor how original. And the glass Mason jars with candy. My question is what is the tea light setting on.? Love your simple approach to decorating, and inexpensive ideas. Thankyou.

      Lauri, Just picked up one more tree stand for my collection! The canning jars have a fluted glass votive candle in the mouth so you can place a candle inside. I linked to them in the In My Home section of my Amazon store: https://www.amazon.com/shop/lorabcreateandponder

  2. I enjoyed reading and seeing your vintage finds. It’s a special feeling when you run across an item that you can imagine in your decor. Your collection of discarded Christmas tree stands tickled me and I remember tossing some away. Who would want one anyway?

      My grandma used to call all her stuff “old junk”. I love all that old junk! My other grandma is the one who bought the old junk secondhand herself; she’d love all my old things:)

  3. Thanks Lora, pinned it, that should help me get my brain working and creating.
