Last weekend, we turned the clock back an hour in Denmark. Which means it now gets dark at 4.45 in the evening! So, I’ve wholeheartedly adopted the Danish custom of lighting candles all over our apartment in autumn and winter (did you know Danes are among the biggest consumers of candles?). And I’ve got Happiness to keep me company.
No, I’m not talking about the hyped, stereotypical all-pervading emotion associated with Denmark. I’m just talking about my glassybaby. I had never heard of the glassybaby until my friend, Jan, gave me this gorgeous votive candle holder, handmade in Seattle. She thought it made perfect sense to gift the one called Happiness to me. And I love it!
So much so, that I checked the glassybaby website to find out more. And guess what it’s not just Happiness they have; they’ve got Hugs, Hope and Heart too. Each glassybaby is handblown and no two hues are alike. Here's a snapshot of glassybaby candle votive holders from their online shop; aren’t they gorgeous?
I fell in love with Blue Eyes, True Love and Skinny Dip. What's your favourite?
