They're here!

Today the parcel postie hammered on my door, and I was amazed and surprised that he had two very similarly sized boxes for me. My candelabras had arrived! One not so surprising, it had only come from NSW, but for the one to arrive from Scotland on the same day, that was AMAZING!!

Here they are on my table:

They're completely identical in every way (though one needs for me to give it a good polish) and given that they're from opposite sides of the globe, it's a miracle that they're even similar! Kudos to the two sellers for giving such great descriptions - they made it easy for me.

For the big day I think I'll have a nice arrangement of fresh flowers in the centre rather than the vase with silks - I'd still like to have some room for platters on the table too.

Now I just have to wait for my extra plates to arrive, and all will be perfect! Yay!

They are lovely! My mom had two similar to those. Of course the quilt is stellar also!

Amazing that they arrived on the same day which makes them truly identical twins. They look great on your table.

When I saw the picture of the candelabra earlier, I thought they looked familiar. 35 years ago, my Aunt in England sent us 2 as a wedding present. We have not used them, think they are in a closet put away. Should get them out to polish up. Love your quilts. From northern Iowa.
