The monster candle

I just had to show you this. It’s the whopper candle I found at a garage sale the other day. It was so heavy I could barely hold it up with one hand.

The cranberry scent is divine. I felt a little bad about smashing it up with a hammer, but now that it’s become four cute jar candles (with more to come) I’m feeling better about it.

Loving: Orla Kiely notebook

While in Boston we wandered into a store that I think was called Black Ink. I could have spent all day there browsing cute purses, letterpress cards, random gifts, etc. I’m all about the ephemera. So even though I’m plenty stocked on notebooks I took home this Orla Kiely sort of all-in-one book.

It has lined, graph and plain paper sheets with — of course — her little leaf pattern running down the left side of every page. It also comes with a stamped out bookmark.

As with everything in my office, it’s already got wax on it.
