What's wrong with this picture?

My mantle has a large window behind it.

The temperature in Central NY has not been above 35' all week.

I bought new candles at Marshalls and put them on the mantle.

This is what I came home to after ONLY two days of sunshine:
Another lesson learned: Do not buy candles at Marshalls and do not put candles on the mantle.

UPDATE, after reading comments: Never even thought to melt these and make new candles.

Another lesson learned: BLOG and read comments before throwing anything away!

  1. aww noo! Those were such pretty candles too!

  2. All I can say is Wow! Who would have thought that the sun shining in pretty much freezing weather could have done that? Could you melt them down (use a double boiler) and pour the wax into glass containers to use? Hope you have a wonderful week.

  3. Oh No!! How'd that happen? That's too bad! Thanks for popping in to see me and I hope you'll start a rooster collection! Then you'll be in the Rooster Club!! :)
    Be a sweetie,

  4. Oh noooooo! And they were such pretty candles! Melt them down and make your own new ones!

  5. Bummer! That's one icky candle. Thanks for letting us know. I saw candles just like that at TJ Maxx and almost picked them up. Love the swirly look but don't want to throw away money.
