The Goal: to take and post at least one picture each day for the entire year that I'm 27.

I find that I rush through the day, to rush through the week, to get to the weekend...just to find that an entire year goes by in the blink of an eye. So, on the eve of my last day as a 26 year old I decided to make a change. I challenged myself to take the time each day and find at least one moment worth remembering, hoping that in this way I will learn to live each day for what it is. For regardless of how uniform the days may feel at a glace each one is truly unique and worth cherishing.

Day 334 - Making a good thing better...

A six dollar pillar candelabra plus a four dollar plate (and a string of clear silicone) equal one great pedestal (My mom put these ones together for us when we first moved into our place)
I've used this pedestal for decorative displays and as a cupcake stand

But by adding a small displaced glass hurricane shade (from a broken vase so it was "free"),
A mercury tea candle holder ("free" from our wedding decor stock pile - we've got 100's of these),
And a two dollar tea light sized Yankee Candle in sent "Early Sunrise"
(It smells amazing and also matches the plate and my kitchen perfectly)
And what you've got is one hell of a (cheap and) beautiful, great smelling kitchen table centerpiece!
