I'm on a roll!!
So, here's another find at a local garage sale. Do you know what it is? Of course, it looks like a pineapple, but that's because I did some work on the thing.
Okay, so I won't leave you in suspense. It's a big round candle that was partially burned. The color was perfect for a pineapple and the neat pattern fit too. Man was I excited! The lady had several candles in different colors just like it--and the price was right!
The lady selling eyed my purchase and commented. "Don't you want the others too? They glow through the pattern and look amazing when lit. I hope you have a very special place for it in your home."
Hmmm . . . I didn't have the heart to tell her that I wasn't going to burn it at all, but add some leaves I'd cut out and change it into a pineapple for my office!
