I was going through some of my various sketchbooks and notebooks this morning, looking for a croissant recipe. I came across this sketch in a book dated 7/02 on the spine. I think it's based on a U-shaped candle...."I burn my candle at both ends..." which I adapted to a holder. On the other hand I may have seen something along these lines in a catalog. It was eleven years ago and I made no note of its origins, if indeed there are any. I suppose it's possible that I dreamt it. I do note things I have dreamed of, but I have no memory of this one. If it weren't so obviously done in my style with my writing I might even doubt that I drew it.
I do remember that I had several pairs of hand dipped candles that were this shape. They were beeswax in soft colors and burned beautifully. There is nothing like beeswax for a long burning even light. Plus it has that wonderful scent.
We are a having a spell of cold weather; it hasn't gone above twenty all day. It generally doesn't get this cold until mid January.....but you never know around here. It has been snowing softly since mid morning. I don't think there has been an inch accumulation. Because it's so cold it sweeps away easily. I think it's supposed to get heavier and possibly change to rain near morning. I just hope we are not in for a winter where it starts out snow, turns to rain, then the temperature drops and freezes everything. Stepping out the door can be treacherous in those conditions. I can remember at least two winters that we slogged through in that weather pattern.
Meanwhile we have water inside, plenty of wood, a small gas burner and the power inverter if the electricity goes out.
This will probably do in our sales tomorrow. People in this area tend to stay home even under slightly threatening conditions. If the roads are bad I'll wait to go over to restock.
Linda. I think he looks like he was put together without reading the instructions!
I'm going to try to post this to Mud Colony's Facebook page, once I figure out how to do it......that may not happen until tomorrow!
Update: Did a short post on Facebook....look for Suzi Caswell. Boy! That thing can really suck you in!
Happy 3rd Advent. As always, thanks for stopping by..........*s*
