KORALEE!

What a wonderful way to come up for AIR! Today was our last day with a long, long teacher meeting that put me to SLEEP at one point!!! What a gorgeous, wonderful tea cup with a candle...candles are all over my home these days, but (battery candles!!!!) but the ambiance is just perfect. But nothing beats a lovely creation like yours here. I AM OFF OF WORK FROM TOMORROW ON! How are you doing?????

BLESSINGS OF LOVE TO YOU, Anita

Lovely teacup candle! I bought one at a Christmas market last year, but it was in a little rose bowl. The best thing about them, is after you have burned the candle, you still have a lovely piece of china. I will have to have a go at making some myself though..thanks for sharing how to make them :)
My teacup has green tea in it at the moment :)

I think the only candles I have ever made were in Science Camp in the 6th grade. We dug a little hole in the dirt and filled it with wax. Fun memory! I love your idea here, perfect for gift giving!! Yours is very beautiful!
