We finally found candlesticks that were not repulsive at that trusty standby, Ikea. They are simple yet incredibly sturdy (read: heavy as all get out) which is good. Boo loves blowing out candles, and immediately tried to blow out my homemade candles on their first test run!
Luckily, he did not succeed. And the candles? They burn very nicely and have a nice, subtle, honey-ish scent. Hooray for homemade candles!
