I like hurricanes. They are a great way to get a worry free fragrance free candlelight at Linderhof.
I had been looking for some hurricanes for the table at the bottom of the hall -- on line -- but the cheapest was $150 per pair and they were plain Jane.
I thought that I might order them in July as I really needed a pair for the table at the bottom of the hall.
And then we went to an Estate Sale . . . .
I found this pair for $40 each -- and they are perfect -- much more perfect that the ones I was looking at on-line and (with shipping and such) for half the price.
They are a thick engraved glass and hold a nice size pillar. (Fragrance free, of course) and the other night when the electric went out, they performed their job superbly.
And, too, when we have a dinner party they can be whisked to the dining room table as a change of pace to the candlesticks that we usually use when we have company for dinner.
It's Tuesday, time for Tabletop Tuesday with Marty at A Stroll Thru Life.
Gorgeous. Makes me think I need to visit an estate sale soon.
Those hurricanes are beautiful. I absolutely LOVE estate sales. If you sign up on www.estatesales.net, you can receive e-mails alerts for sales in your area.
They are nice and as you say you don't have to worry so much when using those. I had no idea how much they cost!
What a fabulous find. I love your hurricanes. They look so pretty on your table and I love your beautiful statue and gorgeous drapes. Such a lovely vignette. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty
I bought some hurricanes years ago at Pottery Barn for my in-laws 50th wedding celebration. I love them, plain jane but reminiscent of those in the movie, Message in a Bottle. Love the horse, I wouldn't paint it if I were you.
The hurricanes are beautiful and such a great price you got them at.
Happy summer to you!
They are very pretty! I love the etchings...Christine
Those are just gorgeous - worth the wait. I believe that if you really want something, you'll find it - and on your terms. I'll bet the light from inside those hurricane glasses is beautiful.
They are so beautiful and so functional too. I LOVE estate sales!!!
Martha, they are GORGEOUS! I love the Adams-like swags of the etching --very classic. And the crystal bases -- they look so light, and delicate -- really beautiful.
I love to use hurricane lights, too -- safer!
When I saw the title "Hurricanes" on your blog, my East Coast mind jumped to storms! Duh.
Great find! Don't you love when you stumble upon something that you've been looking for?
Oh Martha! Did you know that I'm looking for these too?!? These are fantastic! I like the brass ones with the glass hurricane ... but I need to find a better source. These are great!
Martha, those are gorgeous! Truly perfect for Linderhof- you must be thrilled. We are so glad to be back and I'm trying to catch up with everyone
They are lovely Martha and it looks like you've found a perfect spot for them. I hope the knee is on the mend. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary
Martha.....They are very beautful. That was a great find, they will look perfect anywhere you put them..... love the horsey.
Excellent find...with the etched pattern they are gorgeous!
Hmm....must be the slope adjusted cow syndrome. I read your title and was thinking weather. I do live in Florida. ha ha. I do love your hurricanes so much more than mine down here.
Perfect! Estate sale shopping is so exciting, some of my best finds ever came from estate sales.
