The Paris Collection

Welcome to those stopping in from:
No, I'm not auditioning for Project Runway. When I did the first candle in my "Lumiere" post, little did I know how addicting these would be! So I did another one which I added to that post. And , um....I've since done two more so I decided 4 was a collection and since they're all Paris themed..."The Paris Collection". Here are the two newest:

And here are the four together: 
Now, try explaining to the Safeway checker what you're doing with all these candles. Eyes. Glazed. Over.

Very pretty!

You know, I gave up a long time ago explaining what I'm going to do with a future crafty object. Usually, the idea is in my head I can't put into words what exactly I'm going to do. My husband's eyes glaze over often.

Way cool! These make lovely gifts!! Perfect... I should make some for Xmas with some Italian / English words on them. For the Italians XMAS is a highly spiritual time and candles are 'right on'.

Thank you for linking them up at our DIY Craft Linky Party at FineCraftGuild.com

See you again next Wednesday, I hope!

These turned out so nice. You know you're good if you can turn grocery store candles into these beauties that look like they're from a boutique. I'd love for you to add this to my link party, "Sweets This Week" @ www.sugarbananas.blogspot.com
