My Candle holder collection

What are you thinking? I have a good collection of candle holder. No, rather, I have very few, though I love candle holder a lot. I’m writing about my candle holders, because all the candle holders I’ve in my collection have a little story behind it.  Sadly, I cannot show you one of them. I tried to find out the picture of that very candle holder, but I didn’t have any of that. First let me tell the story about that very candle holder which is no more in my house. That was a very simple one, still it had a story. There were three pieces in the collection. At that time we were living in an apartment, and my son was very little, only two years old. Usually, he didn’t touch any of the show pieces I used to keep in my house. So, I kept those little holders in front of the TV. One day somehow he managed to get one gift bag. I saw him playing shopping with his cars, and I didn’t disturb him. He had been putting all his cars in the bag until he dropped one of holders inside it. I heard the breaking sound, I hurriedly went to stop him. Before I reached to him, he already put the other two, and broke all of them. That was the end  of my three little candle holders. 


The first candle holder was given to me by a dear friend of mine. It is a hanging one. This was one of the best gift I got in my baby shower. It is still hanging in my living room. The rustic colored metal hanging pieces has four little cups, where I can put tea light candles. 


The second one is also a gift from one of dear friend. When she gifted that I was extremely delighted. I love to keep candle all over the places in my home. It is little wooden one in dark brown color.  Currently, I kept it one my coffee table.
I have one crystal candle holder, I got that one as gift from someone, but I cannot remember who gave that to me. The crystal candle looks gorgeous no doubt, but yet to find a suitable place to keep that in my home, where it will look attractive.


The only one I bough is the last one. I always had a dream to put three different size same candle holder on the mantle in my own home. So, when bought our home, I started searching my dream candle holders as my first decoration. However, whatever  I was getting all were out of my reach. I didn’t want to spend much money, as we were tight in our budget at that time. After searching in several store I fixed Ross. I knew if I went several times I could get something. At last, I got my dream candleholders. 


I won’t say they are exotic, they are very common, rather ordinary, but I adore them a lot.
