Hi - not much to report, except that I am keeping a scented candle alive by using matches as wicks and making sure that they don't drown. The candle is in a tin - so I want to use up the scented wax. (also have my aluminum pie plate behind it to keep the heat.)Signed up for a free candle from a freebie site- & saw that their scented candles in bottles cost $16!! Boy, am I going to make those scented candles LAST.
Other than that I got an invite to a free cocktail party sponsored by Chambord for week after next - a free night out. And I am going to try to go to the Mikimoto pearl costume talk tomorrow - but it's so damp & rainy here - One likes to stay home if one can to avoid all those who have forgotten how to drive on a wet street! And it's going to be rainy for the wkend - ugh - and when we spent the last sunny wkend in the city because of my alumnae function! Hubby is going to get boatitis...
Oh, Michelle Obama does wear her clothes well - but not my body type! I like her style - but who would have thought of a yellow ensemble in the winter? Looked great, tho. Ditto the ballgown! Me? I went through the previous sheath period and it doesn't flatter me AT ALL and my arms get COLD. Wonder how Michelle kept herself WARM??
Oh my buddy sent me a RED clarinet which I have inherited from his cousin in Virginia, who sadly died last weekend. I can actually PLAY it! I used to be a good clarinet player, but let it go - but with this student instrument, I see the possibility of getting my "lip" or embouchre (sp?) BACK and playing. Another project. I got out my old music (& I mean OLD) - There is some sense to keeping things, but then I want to keep EVERYTHING - if only I had the room. That's why we pay for a storage space!
Do you save everything, too?

making candles last

voltive candles are small and cheap. Try using one to extend the life of your candle. When the wax of the new candle is exhausted you should still have the wick.
