Hog Scrapers and Hydrangea ~ The Keeping Room

Saturday, January 24, 2015

Free...I really like that word.

Not wanting to buy anything new,
I headed to my stash in hopes of coming up with a centerpiece for the keeping room.

Using an antique box,
hog scraper candlesticks,
and hydrangea,
this is what I came up with.

I love the primitive look of hog scraper candlesticks,
and the metal on this antique box,
both of which add to the farmhouse style
in the keeping room.

A couple of decoupage boxes to use as a base,
giving the hog scrapers a little height in the arrangement.

They are in position...

After adding the hydrangea...

A few have held their color,
some have not,
I like them either way...

Candles offer that special little something 

Happy Friday!
Do you have big plans for the weekend?

Join us each week at AMAZE ME MONDAY.


  1. Oooooooh... I REALLY like them as the sun goes down!

  2. It looks beautiful on your table!

  3. How pretty!

    When I read hog scrapers I pictured those metal things you scrape your shoes on. I was wrong. ;)

  4. I'm not ashamed to tell you the only plans I have is to try to duplicate that darling centerpiece!

  5. The center piece is so lovely, and soft looking. Thanx for sharing. Jo

  6. Love the rustic elegant look. Wish my dried hydrangeas looked as good as yours. Mine were two years old and showing their age, so had to toss them.

  7. So creative and lovely...I like free too...haha...I just finished posting our bedroom redo...You'll like it because I reused as many things as I could...(and what I couldn't I found for a bargain)!!...have a happy weekend, Mariaelena

  8. Beautiful Cindy!! Love the shot at dusk with the reflection in the marble!

  9. I had to admit that the title of your post caught my attention--I had no idea what a hog scraper was and HAD to find out! Ha! Those evening shots are gorgeous!

  10. Your center piece look really good. I love it when you can find items in our stash. I have been cleaning closets and shelves and I am finding things I forgot that I had. Don't you love it - it's like going shopping. Your hydrangeas look so good. I have so many bushes and I always forget to cut some and dry them. Maybe this year I will remember.
    Have a great week.

  11. Cindy,
    What a beautiful centerpiece for your pretty new kitchen table. Hop on over and join in at my Show and Share Party...hope to see ya there!


  12. Your centerpiece of "found" objects is just gorgeous, Cindy! OK I still don't know what a hogscraper is even after seeing those candlesticks. Your photography is fabulous also.

    1. You are so sweet, thank you! I'll shoot you an email about the hog scraper candles. :)

  13. Stunning!
