New Candlesticks.

For my home altar.

I found two sets of candlesticks thrown out, and I took them to use. One is black, rather plain with unadorned shields on them. Those I'll use for Good Friday.The other is brass, with the same size and general shape, but in a Martin Travers-esque neo-baroque style.These I'll keep up until Paschaltide, since they're too ornate for the sobriety and plainness of Lent. Maybe they'll get an outing on on Laetare Sunday. Gothic-style candles are something I'd like, but they're hard to find, so my home altar is in a baroque style.
