I see GN recommends an M&S candle this morning. I picked up the same one on Monday, free gift via Sparks. I've never actually bought one nor would I because of the cost. This one looks lovely and if neither of AC want it will use sometime.

Four candles? smile

I've had a few over the years as free gifts. When used the tins make useful containers for small stuff, buttons screws etc.
The glass jars are ideal for small flowers, eg dahlias at the end of season when stems seem to shorter or displaying one large bloom.

'Andles for forks?

Ronnie Corbett's daughter has an antique shop in Brighton called Four Candles.
Isn't that lovely?

That reminds me I was supposed to get the free candle with Sparks but I have used Sparks a few times since and not received it. I must ask about it.
