Available now from a neighborhood near mine, this lovely faux stick beeswax candles by Lacey of gremlina. Lacey and her husband keep bees and sustainably harvest the honey and beeswax from their buzzing friends to bring you these lovely treasures. You might have seen them on my Thanksgiving table.
Lacey offers a variety of sizes and thicknesses of these stick candles, and all are such a treat to behold.
And now for a craft!
With the leftover wire from our Martinmas lanterns, I spent a few days turning over in my mind a way to make cinnamon stick stars. I tried wrapping the corners of the cinnamon sticks, which did not work so well, then I threaded the wire, stiff but malleable, through 10 3-inch cinnamon sticks leaving about 1 inch of wire sticking out on either end. I folded each end of the wire over the other to secure the sticks in a circle, and simply started bending the wire into a star shape between the cinnamon sticks.
These heavenly scented ornaments could certainly be hung on a tree, but I rather like mine sitting in the window sill warming in the first morning rays.
