Junk or Jewel?

I "bought" this floral candle holder at my mother's garage sale a couple weekends ago (for free). I think it's really pretty. My husband thinks it's odd. But, it's hard to object to a family heirloom, right? What do you think...pretty or odd?

Ha, ha. If I had a dollar for every time I brought something home that my husband thought was odd ... That said, you should keep it if it if you really love it and it fits in with your decor. Maybe you could compromise by putting it someplace that's not so objectionable, say a hall table instead of the entry/foyer table. Or maybe he gets to bring in something that you're not so crazy about.

I think it needs to have a dinner party! I would make a green tablecloth, green froggie placeholders, pretty napkins and invite some freinds for a pretty evening!

I wouldn't say it's odd... unusual perhaps, but I bet it looks nice when the lights are low and the candles are lit.
