It's the bees knees. I love candles but I have a lot of allergies and can't handle most scented candles. Pure honey-scented beeswax candles though, well let's just say they are a whole new ball of wax ;).
I bought this beautiful amber depression glass bowl at Vinnie's for $15. Once I got it home, I wasn't sure what to do with it. Yellows are not a prevalent colour in my decor. Then last Sunday I went to Warkworth (Ontario) for a drive. It's a cute little village that seems to attract a lot of artists and artisans. If you are in southern Ontario, you should it out. I'm heading back on March 10/11 for the Maple Festival. Hopefully, I'll remember my camera this time. They have a craft and vintage sale -yay!
Anyways, I went to the Cheeky Bee http://cheekybee.com and was over the moon when I saw (and smelled) their gorgeous beeswax candles. I bought a large pillar one and knew I had found a use for my bowl.
It looked a little stark just sitting in the bowl and then I remembered Brenda at http://www.cozylittlehouse.com piling shells around the base of one of her candles. Sooo I went to the buck store yesterday and found bags of shells. The purple just ties it in with my dining room so now it sits in front of the window - ready to scent the house with sweet honey.
Bye bye for now. I'm off to make a batch of chili for the freezer and creme caramel for tonight's dessert. Check out http://dinneratjulies.blogspot.com later for the creme caramel recipe.
