14 May 19: Shelfie with (lots of) candles

Don’t you just LOVE candles?

I know I’ve said it before (and I’ll probably say it again – sorry-not-sorry) but I have something of a candle addiction, as you can see from these shelves.

One of my constant car-booting quests is the pursuit of vintage candlesticks, and I have to say I find them very hard to come by. What’s the story? Were they easily dropped or knocked off mantelpieces, way back when, so haven’t made it to 2019? Or do people love them so much they rarely throw them out?

Even modern ones are a relatively rare beast: tealight holders have, I think, bumped candlesticks unceremoniously back into yesteryear. Having said that, I love these stacking beauties (fourth, fifth and sixth from the left) from @ikeauk

Do you love candles? Do you share my frustration at the paucity of candlestick choices? Or have you found a secret and abundant Aladdin’s cave of the things that you’d like to share with me, you cheeky sneaksters?……. 🔥 🔥 🔥 🔥
