{a tiny collection}

Sitting on a shelf in my dining room is this unassuming jar
filled with little wooden painted treasures....
It is my collection of  
vintage birthday candle holders!


Aren't they sweet?
They each have a little hole in the top to hold a small birthday candle!
I just love how they look in the jar...
and of course on a cake!

...funny the little things that can make us smile :)

Hi, Carrie! Those are just about the cutest little things I have ever seen!!! I have a collection of tiny wooden Easter tree ornaments, I had never thought about placing them in a jar for display. Good idea! Hope you are having a wonderful day!
