i got nuthin' today (but a pretty candle)

actually, m21 has a whole folder of photos and blog ideas on his desk top, but they are all seeming a little too involved to write up right now, so instead, we're goin' for quick n' easy, which is better than nuthin'- our next option...

franki, from life in a venti cup sent out a tweet today looking for glamorous hostess gift suggestions and m21 sent her one of his faves, these scented candles in chic porcelain boxes, from geary's of beverly hills (though at $85.00 bucks a pop, in m21's opinion, you'd have to be a pretty accommodating hostess to get one- like put out kind of accommodating)... ;-) btw, franki didn't order one, so m21 isn't spoiling any surprises or anything.

also, though m21 has sent a couple of these to a special friend or two, he has no idea how the candles inside actually smell, and frankly, couldn't care less- with packaging this glam, the product inside isn't the important part, right?

I have to say, had I not already placed my order for the other gift, I'd have don't one of these in a heartbeat! I particularly love the ivory/elephant one at the bottom. Classic!

It was a good reminder to me to have a list of "go to" gifts on hand at a moment's notice. How can I be a great guest without the requisite great gift? :)

Thank you again for your excellent taste!

The candles remind me of bowls a Chinese restaurant. Actually, if the interior has an Asian theme design, this piece would be perfect.

Tough choice between the croc and the elephant. And at 85 per, it would have to be a choice.

Wow--those are really cool. (And really expensive). The upside is you can save the container and use it as a piggy bank after the candle burns out. (Do you hear that Jo Malone?)
