Berry Scented Pink Candles Embellished with Vintage Buttons

Believe it or not but George learned how to make candles this weekend,
and he really enjoyed it. I've mentioned before that he likes his mason jars
and I've also mentioned to him he needs to do something with them not just collect them.

I ran across a candle making kit at a local yard sale and bought it for him.
He learned how to add dyes to the wax to get different colors as well as different scents.

Look at how cute they are.

Mean while I finished up a set of story tale Snow White Nightstands.

Looking through all my photos there doesn't appear to be any before photos or even
in progress ones. It might have something to do with being the candle maker's helper.
They started out as a boxy little set with some ugly screwed in spindle legs and mismatched hardware.

The new legs were from an dusty musty auction stool I picked up.

The scalloped piece on the bottom center was left over piece from a
another table and I cut to fit it between the legs.

I chose these handles because their shape mimiced this scalloped detail so well.

  2. I'll bet Geo didn't even know that the sexiest scent to a woman, next to licorice, is vanilla. I think I read that somewhere. Or made it up, can't remember which.


  3. George is a quick study - they look yummy!

  4. I love those little nightstands! And Wow!!! You go George! Pretty soon he will offering a line of hand cream and bath oils to go with his beautiful candles!
