Sweet (Luminous) Clementine

When I saw this post on the blog Apartment Therapy showing how to make a candle with only clementines and olive oil I knew had to try it.  So Monday I grabbed a box of Cuties and remembered how much I LOVE clementines.  The box in question contained super-sweet bright orange orbs of deliciousness and I have been averaging about 5 a day.  My vitamin C quota has been met and I recovered some candles from the wreckage.  The candles work out really well and they even look pretty good without the tops so you could get 2 candles from one clementine.

Topless clementine candle. Oh my!

While taking pictures I wound up playing with the 'fireworks' mode on my camera. Moving the camera rather than the light source proved to be more difficult than expected but I managed.  I strung the pictures together and this is what I got. Just some silly fun for a silly girl.

Talk of clementines makes me want to watch Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.  I think I'll have to dye my hair and light some clementine candles for a themed movie night.  If you haven't seen it, watch it.  If you have seen it, it's probably been a while and you should most certainly re-watch it.  Don't forget to note the brilliant use of Clementine's hair as an indicator for the timeline.  And if you're already a fan check out this Clementine paper doll print on Etsy. (The seller also has an Edie Beale doll, how incredibly cool.)
