skull-candles

As a lighting source, we never found much use for candles. Why bother with a chance for fire, messy wax cleanup and/or potential pet hazards when recessed cans and a dimmer switch can give you almost the same mood lighting? Because candles inherently look cool, they work when the power is out and they’re much cheaper to operate. Whether you’re trying to satisfy some morbid curiosity, decorating for Halloween or just want a little more Indiana Jones in your life, there’s a reason for one – or three (hey, save on shipping) – of these 100% paraffin wax (apparently that’s the good stuff) skull candles from West Elm.

[Shop]  We might not all agree on watches, wallets or other pieces of the everyday carry, but the one thing we can all agree on is our mutual love of building things out of small bricks. Forget plastic building bricks that can only be used with specific mats and upgrade your conference call and boring meeting building with this 1:12 scale mini cinder block pallet set. With 24 miniature cinder blocks and one pallet per set, this has everything you need to build a great foundation for the big box creation of your dreams. Whether you’re making a small creation of your own devising with the 24 pieces that come with it, or adding multiples to build something more grandiose, this is the best way to build when you’re not using plastic.
