White Wednesday

My little nephew S got me this oh so good smelly candle as a Christmas gift
...notice the perfect white, he knows me!


The label on the glass was not the prettiest one,
but the maker knows it because look at what he wrote on it:


and peeling I did....
and printing I did...
and fixing I did...



I keep it in my bedroom now and every time I look at it, I think of him!

Well, how clever are you! I cannot live without my candles. Did you see my candle chest last week? (very silly) I must try something like that with one of mine.

Oh what a wonderful idea...I usually leave mine plain and undecorated...glad they started making the lables in the "peel off"
style though!
So happy you could stop over for "cake" ;-) ~ Rebecca

Thanks for stopping by my blog -- lunch actually was pretty tasty, considering it came out of package from Costco.

Hope this comment works -- I have been having trouble leaving them today.

Nancy @ Live love laugh said...

That is a great idea! I always save the larger candle jars, soak off the labels and use them later for storage and display. I never thought to pretty them up before and now I see what I should do with my plain empties!
Thanks!
