Hello you, and welcome to inside the mind of an Obsessive Compulsive Designer.
I can finally talk about these! We picked up one of these candles for a surprise souvenir for my fiance’s mother. Now that we’ve given it to her I don’t have to worry about spoiling the surprise! 🙂
Can we talk about how GORGEOUS these candles are? I picked these two up from this cute little store in Breckenridge, Colorado called Global Candle Gallery. These are all they sell and I immediately fell in love with their store. I’m not exaggerating when I say, I spent hours in their store testing as many candles as I could. These candles are handmade in the store right in front of you. Let me tell you, they employ some very creative people! These are amazing quality and such an innovative idea! These appear to just be normal candles; until, you put them under direct lighting, then they transform into a gorgeous work of art! The way they layer the wax gives the interior a completely different look than the exterior. This effect also happens when the candles are lit but I’m too much of a perfectionist to burn those gorgeous wicks. I, of course, purchase an all-white candle because I like to use texture as accents instead of color. For my fiance’s mom, we got a gorgeous multi-colored candle that features this cute little elephant (her favorite animal)! I am so in love with these for so many reasons; but most of all, I love supporting local artists. The employees talk so highly of their work and you can tell they love what they do.
Best of all? They have an online store! Be sure to check out their work and see if anything sparks your interest (click here). I will say, the pictures hardly do them justice! Next time you’re in Breck, be sure to stop on in to Global Candle Gallery!
