candles from creamers

it's 70 degrees and sunny here now!  minneapolis, let's never fight again. 

it was demanded that i do another post this week, since apparently my last one was inadequate.  ok fine.

so, like the rest of the female population, i love anthropologie.  but alas!  i cannot afford about 99% of the things in that store.  so i haunt the sale rack constantly.  over the weekend, i found these guys marked on clearance:


um, score.

so i bought three of them.  i couldn't help it!  look how cute they are!
after happily bringing my loot home, i was then faced with the question of what to do with a pile of three ceramic creamers.  so i decided to make them into candles.


pile o' creamers, candle wax, wicks, and a really sketchy looking bottle of scented oil

i used a ragu jar as a double boiler to melt the wax.  because i'm classy like that. 
...but not classy enough to own an actual double boiler.

holding the wick in place:
what do people do without chopsticks??
no, seriously.  i'm always really impressed with people who don't have chopsticks at home, because i'm basically worthless without them. 

ta-da! finished!


also, apparently prom was this weekend.  how did we know?  well, on his morning walk on saturday, roark found a bowtie attached to the front gate.  clearly, someone had had a good night. 

that same someone also missed out on his suit rental security deposit.  suckaaaaa

you know what's fun?  walking your dog in the park while he's wearing a bowtie.
