Candle Success!!

The ice candle is perfect! It is supposed to freeze with a hollow spot in the center and mine did. The walls around the center are about 3 inches thick. I'm quite pleased with it, so much so that I'm going to make several more (since the weather seems to be cooperating and staying well below 32 degrees) so that I can line my front sidewalk with them on Christmas Eve.

I still haven't gotten the urge to put up the Christmas tree. Today I took a nap with both kitties sprawled on me. That was fun. And of course it was snowing this morning. It's very Christmas-y around here in Minnesota. I have been shopping on line and have all of my shopping completed except for something for brother and his wife. And maybe something more for Mom.

Here I've been making ice candles all these years in my water buckets and I didn't know it. Now that you talk about it, they would look cool. How big is your bucket?

This sounds SO cool! I wish it were cold enough here in Cali to do this!

Annie, I use a large bucket, like a plastic painter's bucket, but I bet you could use a smaller one.

This sounds so cool, Robyn. Please show us pictures when you have them all lined up on your sidewalk. I'd love to see them.

You've given me a great idea for when I dump the horses frozen outside water buckets! Seriously, I'd love to see photos, too.
