candles in the sand

We set out for the beach well equipped. Hot dogs, deviled eggs, five layer Mexican dip and chips, and, of course, marshmallows. Plenty of wood for our beach fire and, best of all, a huge box of somebody's Grandma's candle collection that I picked up for free at a yard sale. I say it was somebody's Grandma's because, well, who else would save all their candle stubs and partially burned pillars, carefully wrapped in plastic so old it was turning yellow?

We tossed these into some old, old pots and got to work.
And the finished results? Well, let's just say they look....rustic. Some projects are all about the process, n'est-ce pas?

It was a lovely night, and these are the things wonderful summer memories are made of.
