I know what's that's like, I've got this tasty brew at my side. Yesterday's warm weather (37!) is followed by today's more normal 10.......January is one of those challenges, isn't it? Only 3 weeks until baseball season....

So, these rather tasty candleholders below? Mary ordered them 2 months ago and I showed me making them a week or 2 ago. Finally they are fired and looking good and we went over to Mary and Michael's last night and there was beer and pizza and these guys were rather festive on the table AND THEN I dreamt that Mary was borrowing our car and had an accident with it. That doesn't seem very friendly, when somebody has just given you candleholders and beers.

Those are beautiful. I love that robin's egg/sea foamy color.

what, no beagle or piggy or zebra on the sticks? No hearts? What's going on here for Pete's sakes? (Question: Do you make those in two pieces and join?)

two pieces: YES
and I know, where is the PIG??????

I'll bet the pig is hiding under your beautiful candleholders. I clicked on your blog late last night and the background color was so bright it woke me up.

I have that exact same thought about next mornings coffee, and I'm a lucky girl, Benny always brings me my coffee and toast in bed :)

Oh, Gary. Can I get a pair of those too? Pretty please.

The candle holders are truly beautiful, Gary. I wish I could use some. They are definitely among the 'I want!' items.
