I have found a new love of candles and waxwork.
It all started at the beginning of winter when it became too cold for me to sit outside my backdoor to smoke, so I would stay inside and burn a few candles to burn away the smoke. Then I went a step further and bought some scented candles, which evidently produced a nicer smell than smoke. Then after a visit from family who saw I had candles, I received a lot of candles as Christmas gifts, all different shapes, sizes, scents and colours and I was most grateful. Sometimes it is a shame to use them though.
Then I came across DL & Company who produce collections of some of the most beautiful products I've ever seen from candles to stationary. It all has quite a gothic feel about it and their stuff would make great gifts.
Here are some of my favourite candles that I would like to receive. They are quite expensive though if you were to actually use them, but I'm sure they are more for decoration than covering up smokey smells.
This black skull candle with the snake (quite an obvious choice of mine) is amazing and would sit perfectly on my cabinet in between my white skull candle and my scientist skull.
Then you see this hand candle ( A.K.A 'The Hand-le'). I used the burning image because it is just so brilliant!
But this is my absolute favourite and I want it so bad! It is an actual size head and neck candle and is more like a sculpture of wax. It has the size and the weight to make me want to splash out $450 dollars on it.
And the wick is on the inside so she crys wax out of her eyes! Oh my, if there is anything I want this year it is this! I would definitely burn it once to get the wax down her face and leave it as a talking piece, then just burn tealight candles from the pound shop.
