Wonder If Jack Could Jump Over This Candlestick!

Oh you guys! I am excited to share this with you today...so I linked in on not one but TWO parties today!
Click on the Coloradolady to find more entries from her vintage thingies meme for today!
Don't forget to stop over and say hi to Leigh and check those that are linking in to Thrifty Thursday...click the photo to get there...
Thanks to both ladies for hosting this for us.
Since the day I got that sewing machine that I shared the other day, I have been enchanted by this very special piece that I picked up at the same time....I have been reminded of the nursery rhyme Jack be nimble, Jack be quick....(okay then you get the idea.) Without further adieu....I present to you a candle like I have never seen before!!!!
TA-DA!!!!! This is one candle! ONE I swear!
Have you ever seen anything like it????Look!!! I can prove it!!! One base...with all these arms!
I had to have it when I realized what it was. I originally picked up the box thinking it was a box of pilar candles....then it became apearant that it was a very special candle. I most likely will never use it...I don't want to waste it...but I will put it out to share with those who visit.
It is a great conversation piece! Have you ever seen one before? Is it common and I live in a bubble? Is it old? I have no clue...all I know is that I thought it was neat!
Now...don't forget to stop in for Fertilzer Friday and accept the invitation to Flaunt your Flowers with me. There is no reason to be shy....just link in and share your houseplants and flowers!
Can't wait to see you tomorrow!

Wow, that is the coolest, and strangest candle I've ever seen! I can't wait to see if anyone else has ever seen one. I think you're right to not burn it, because who knows when you would ever find another!
That picture of your garden in your header has let me speechless! I've never seen such a colorful little garden, and now I must go peak at the rest of your blog!
Happy VTT!

Dirt Princess said...

Robin Ennis Willson said...

Oh my goodness! I've never seen the like of it. That's amazing...but I can't believe it hasn't broken...looks fragile. I'm such a klutz it would be in pieces by now :)
Beautiful.

I wouldn't want to light it either.

marty (A Stroll Thru Life) said...

Oh my word, I have never seen anything like it. I love it though. What a great find. It is just gorgeous. I think you definitely have one of a kind. Lucky girl. Hugs, Marty

blushing rose said...

I've sen ALL kinds of candles in my time but none like this, it is really quite beautiful. TTFN ~Marydon

Maureen said...

That sure is interesting! No clue if there is any age to it or not. Maybe it was custom made???

santamaker said...

That's what I call a candle in bloom!
You're really going to light up the room when you use it. I have to say that is something I've never seen, but I likey likey....

marian said...

WOW that's very different & unusual..it's GORGEOUS!!

Postcardy said...

I never saw anything like that.

Bonnie said...

That is one unusual candle. Very cool.

Erin said...

Okay, I guess I'm in the minority, but I think that is just odd...I'm not sure it is pretty. Very, very odd.

{ L } said...

I've never seen anything like that! It's an octopus candle, hehe.

Jane said...

If you live in a bubble then I am right there with you because I have never seen anything like that either. It would be a great conversation piece (or a real fire starter if it was lit :)

Marjorie (Molly) Smith said...

Now how neat is that, looks like a porcupine lol...Thanks for sharing, I have never seen anything like it before.

knutsel Rein said...

Awesome, I never seen a candlestick
like this.

Ulla said...

I have never seen anything like this candle. We do have Christmas candles kind of Y shape with one line going right up in the middle, but they can be packed flat and they burn nicely.

Diann @ The Thrifty Groove said...

That is the funkiest (is that word? LOL) candle I have ever seen! Cool find!

Karen at Nittany Inspirations said...

That truly is unique. I've never see one like it either.

xinex said...

Wow! Cool! So unique, I have never seen anything like it either. Thanks for sharing!...Christine

PlantSomeRoots@Lakewood said...

Hmmm...I think you win the grand prize for showing the most interesting piece. I've never seen anything like it before.
Thanks for sharing!
Living it up at Lakewood,
Cindy

onlymehere said...

What a find Tootsie! I have never seen anything like it, I wonder what keeps the wax from dripping all over?? I would save this one, you may NEVER find a replacement....really unique...good eye girl!

Have a great VTT and a wonderful weekend.

Michelle@Fromhousetohome said...

That is so neat, I haven't seen anything like that before.

Kristens Creations said...

Hi Tootsie, I have been trying to comment for days! For some reason it wouldn't let me...Finally!! Anyway, this is the coolest candle I've ever seen!! Love it!! I also did not know that spraying water on your annuals would save them from frost...glad to know that. Mine are looking kind of bad right now though. I will be planting pansies and mums soon. I also love the new sewing maching, what a great find!! Have a good one, Kristen

"Blossom" said...

Weird, but I really like the candle. But I would because I like unique things; something no one else has. You and Gloria come up with the most unusual things.
Now what will you put on the sides of the candle holder with this one in the middle? Nothin?

Mimi said...

Wow, that is one unique candle!

Cass @ That Old House said...

Now that is what I call an exuberant candle... wow, what a lot of ARMS. I hope it is DRIPLESS. :-)

Darla said...

Jack better hope this thing ain't lit..LOL! It is a very interesting candle for sure. I'd of had to buy it too..

The Japanese Redneck said...

Very unusual, and I've never seen anything like it either.

Enjoy!

Ramona

Keetha Broyles said...

Wow - - - extremely unusual! Like a "starburst" candle!!!

Queenmothermamaw said...

So far looks like no one has seen one like it. I haven't either. So I bet you have a very uniquely, unigue
item.

Momof3 said...

That has to be the most interesting candle I have ever seen. It is awesome!

Betty said...

I must live in the same bubble because I have never seen one like it either. It is really unique. I got a card from Sabrina today, posted on the chat space. I have been cutting back and removing some flowers, always feels kind of sad. Thinking of painting my husband's plow too back to it's original colors which were red, blue and cream.

jennifer said...

Now how cool is that?

Have a great weekend!

Pat@Back Porch Musings said...

I've never seen anything like that candle. That is amazing! I probably wouldn't use it either, unless I knew where I could find more!

The Crazy Suburban Mom said...

Oh my thats the coolest and strangest (as someone said) candle Ive seen...and what a neat VTT thursay post.

I think that would be scary lit!

Candace said...

Gosh - I've never seen anything like it before - I can think of ways to use it for both Halloween and Christmas! Have fun!
Cheers!
