Remember the electric wire insulators hubs brought home from work that I posted here?
Since they are made of ceramics which were very heat resistant, I always tried to place candles in them. Perfect when brow-outs do strike specially during stormy days.
That’s not all, it can also prep up a blank table and create a zero dollar decorative accent in homes.
I placed a pink colored candle in one insulator…(another thrifty treasure)
…then added pinky flowers around the candle for a more dainty look
This brown piece is another ceramic-design insulator which I happen to place a bunch of “Chinese incense” (?). Around 40 pesos per bunch.
And, here, in the front porch coffee table, I placed painted DIY dried wild flowers in another insulator. Those two odd similar brown pieces were also another design.
To break the monotony of dark colors, I added a petite orange-y candle and assorted marbles on an unused ash tray. Finished off the thrifty decoration which sits in a “bilao” that used to be a take-out plate when ordering “pancit malabon”.

Really don’t know how my love for candles started. I think it began when I attended a training on candle making about four years ago. A training for women sponsored by our local municipality. It aims to provide training and ideas for home based moms who wanted to try a small business in the comforts of their home.
Glad I get to learn candle-making and stuffs. I didn’t get to start doing business out of it but learning the process gave me tons of ideas. Then, I realized, I had collected dozens or so of different candles.
Here’s my newest bargain loot. Found me these twin candles for $4 and as always, seeing it for the first time in the shelf, it was love at first sight. I was hoping to find another box, but I didn’t like the design of the other one, so I settled for this box.
Opening up, it was just plain looking candles, I must agree…
But, these twin frosted crystal was to rave about. The label said it was Made in Germany…Should it be true?
There they are, twin pink candles…Wouldn’t you fall in love?
A bit closer look of the dainty blooms around it…Who couldn’t resist such charming beauties…I could only stand in awe^_^
