Weakness!

Weakness!

Postby B_BQ » Nov 27, 2008 8:02 pm

I do have a weakness when I go to Costco. Flowers! I thought these were a pretty good buy - 24 for less than $20. An individual rose costs that for Valentine's Day! :roll:
I made up two vases - one for the family room and one for the living room.

But that is a candle table not a rose table. :wink: Does it have a bird cage & a flip top?

Nice flowers, do they stink pretty?

I have no idea what the table is Ron. :oops:
I have two of them, and they fold up. I usually drag them out for extra side tables for guests!

The flowers are pretty, but not smelly! :cry:

The soul needs feeding just as much as the body so don't think of it as a weakness but a necessity.

Thanks for sharing.

I agree with Betty - flowers are a necessity, and those are gorgeous, Brenda!

I have made several candle tables with round, octagon & square tops but only one where the top flips up to the vertical.

Here is the substructure of one. You can see why the top portion is called the "birdcage".

Here is the one with the top turned up.

So, I'm still learning! Thanks Ron.
The table top does indeed flip so that it's vertical, so takes up less space when it's stored. :)
