I got these after the holidays last year at the thrift store during a, very rare, solo mama afternoon. Now here is the remarkable part, I had been eyeing them at Crate and Barrel the year before but had refused to spend the money on them. Then one day wandering the housewares aisle at Goodwill, there they were. I grabbed them up immediately and here they sat, unlit, until now.
They make the perfect Solstice decoration. Pop a lit candle in them and they glow, celebrating the soon to be returning light, and the snowflakes adorning them appear, celebrating the quickly approaching winter season. The light always returns, banishing the darkest days and that is indeed what we will gather and celebrate Thursday evening and Friday morning.
What is your favorite decoration right now? Is there a special story behind it?
