Candle melting… putting off a lovely glow… as treasures started to appear

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

The treasures had been removed… and the candle burned until a hole appeared in the bottom…

Hidden inside were three objects… and the ornament that was attached to the outside…

There was a white crysatl about 1″long…

“The Treasure Candle”…

I found this unique candle at my favorite Thrift Store

Sometimes I see things as little gifts to give to someone… since it was wrapped and brand new… but, I have decided I need a treasure sometime… so I’m going to keep this… and follow the directions placed with it…

It is called a “Treasure Candle”…

This is “The Fable of the Treasure Candle”… rolled up like a tiny scroll

Once upon a time, in a distant land, there lived a fair Princess k9912365who was in love with a brave young Knight. But, alas, the Knight k12693601was imprisoned by a most evil king.

After longing for her beloved for many a month, the Princess conceived a clever plan. She traveled to a mystical kingdom deep within the earth where she gathered crystals and stones k6128414k6430353with magical powers.

Upon returning home, she made a candle k5414868 in which she concealed the treasures. Then she arranged to have it delivered to her lover in his cold dark dungeon.

The sad and disheartened Knight welcomed the gift of light and immediately burned his candle k11167962 , unaware of its special powers. When the crystal revealed itself, a rainbow appeared from within k13027651 . A wave of joy and love swept through him as he realized the special nature of the gift.

At that moment, the crystal in the candle the princess was burning, also shimmered with a rainbow k4425640 . Then, lo and behold, the two tiny rainbows soared out into the heavens and became one. The power of their love was so great that they were drawn into the rainbow’s arc where neither prison walls nor evil kings could ever keep them apart.

Within this candle that I am the beholder of now… I will find a crystal and other gifts of the Earth, each with their own special power.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Unusual

Gift…

I found this small green vase at the thrift store that I frequent… just had to have it! … Why you ask?… Because it was so “UNUSUAL”…

At first I thought it reminded me of fresh green grass in the early Spring… then, the more I looked at it… it reminded me of the tops of green onions… My first Spring flower will go in it!… It could also be used as a candle holder… Any Spring color of candle would do!… What do you see?

 

“The Smells of Autumn”

I love the smell of Autumn … I bought a candle called Toasted Almond” … It was such a yummy smell … I could have almost taken a bite of it… It seems that candles  can take on any scent… Like “Hot Butter Rum” “Whipped Pumpkin Pie” Spiced Cider” Maple Butter and even Sugar Cookie”  … Isn’t it nice to go into someone’s house and it smells so good… When I was younger and in my first house … the closest thing to fancy smelling candles was to put some spices like cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg in a pan of water and simmer it on your stove… even orange peel at times… I also like the outside smells of Autumn… like wood burning when marshmallows are being roasted , walking in the cool air through fallen leaves , apples, oranges and pumpkins  on display at a fruit stand… There’s also the smells of foods that we like to cook in the Fall… chili , stews , soups, baked pumpkin spice muffins  and warm breads Autumn is a great time to wake up your sense of  “Smell”

“My Kids!”…
When we had our Holiday Bazaar at school…we made a lot of homemade items …I would come up with the ideas and the kids would execute them with some guidance and encouragement…We made candles that looked like stained glass … It took collecting old candles of any color or scent … saving our small milk cartons from the cafeteria , purchasing some candlewicks and then all we needed was crushed chunky ice … After cutting off the top of the cartons we had small square boxes …They were then washed and let dry… Over a double boiler of hot water we melted the old candles… Ice chunks were placed in the cartons and the hot wax was poured over it … A wick was inserted …The ice cooled the hot wax fairly quickly while the hot wax melted the ice into various shapes with some slight holes in it … After cooling and removing the carton you had an unexpected, one of a kind, unique candle … The surprised look of achievement on our student’s faces was worth all of the time spent in making them… They had created a wonderful Autumn Smell”
