As most of you know, I have been digging deep and decluttering/purging and reorganizing. Basically, freeing myself and space up! And it has been liberating I must say. Another fun side effect of going through everything is finding little buried and forgotten treasures.
I actually have a big ‘ol honkin’ box of candles. Some bought in bundles at thrift stores. Some just bought at the end of season clearance sales. Well, I decided to organize this box and found some surprises that I had totally forgotten about.
Here is one of the lost treasures I found.
These little gold bird candles were a “After Christmas Clearance” item.
They are so cute and were only .79 cents for the set of four.
I also pulled out all the broken, marred or warped candles and put them in a box.
Since I really like having candlelight in the evening, I have been burning all of these damaged candles. I figure no one else is seeing them. I’m not doing any kind of post with them. Just enjoying the soft glow of candles while watching TV in the evening. Not to mention, we often have mini power outages around here so, it is nice to have a pile of “use them up” candles for those times.
I went through all of my candles and bagged them into the individual colors. I was surprised to find an abundance of yellow and purple candles and hardly any candles in blues.
Do you have a stockpile of candles? Do you use them? Do you go through them once in awhile and pull out damaged ones? Or have I simply taken my organizing and purging a bit too far? LOL (probably)
