A few weeks ago while vacationing at the beach, I paid a visit to one of my favorite stores. I have never bought anything from them (it's all a bit over the top pricey), but I always take pictures. They hate me. On this particular visit, the simplest of details caught my eye and I loved the look. On most of the table tops and counters throughout the store, they were burning candles that were nestled in white, dried beans. The look was simple, yet elegant at the same time. I suppose I was so impressed with it because of my love for candles. It was a new, different, and cheap way of displaying them and I got a little excited. Probably too excited, but I cannot help myself when it comes to candles.
Then I got home and kind of chickened out because I started thinking it was weird. And then I started thinking that I was weird for thinking too much about dried beans and candles. But then I went into Anthropologie looking for clothes and came out instead with my confidence restored (and maybe a sweater as well). Guess who else burns candles in glass globes full of dried beans? So now I feel validated...if Anthropologie can do it, then so can I.
So I put them here... And here...And here...
Are you wondering how I painted the monogram on that candle? Check out my guest post over at Life in Grace for a tutorial.
