a give-away!

After my twilight garden tour this summer, a friend gifted me with three candles that she sells at her shop. She added her own touch to these candles by a secret coating that turns it from a 'plain plastic' to a unique look that is eye-catching. They come in three sizes and four colors...
 stained and creamy,
burgandy,
 copper,
and a plain plastic.
The batteries last a year, have a switch located on the bottom that has a steady or flicker flame and best of all, have an automatic turn on/off for six hours of your choice. To change the timer merely reset the switch at the desired time.

They're lovely used outdoor as well but need protection from wet weather.
 I used mine in de-electrified lights.

LOVE!
Her shop is full of lovely items!
If you come to Lancaster County, Pa, please stop in at Kings - it's a real 'wish shop!'

To celebrate my 200th post, I'm having my first
GIVE-AWAY!
 The 9x22" lantern and 6" candle is from her store with a berry ring added.
