thank you, calvin klein home! (repurposing a ck home "storm" marble candle)

 a while back, i posted about the new chic accessory line from calvin klein home, and mentioned that i was in love with the sculptural and minimalist signature fragrance marble vessel candles in the line. low and behold, the good folks at calvin klein were nice enough to send me one for my birthday this last may! score! thank you, calvin klein home!
i love how the storm candle blends seamlessly with my decor.
they did ask that i when i was done burning the candle, that i post a picture of how i would reuse the gorgeous marble vessel the candle comes in. well, i have been enjoying the HECK out of the delicious scent all summer long and have barely made a dent in the candle- it's big and lasts lasts over a hundred hours according to the site.  
classic hi/lo decor- the calvin klein home candle repurposed to hold a $11.99 trader joes orchid.  seriously- looks like a million bucks, right?
so i asked for them to send me an empty vessel (agreeing to send it back) so i could show everyone that not only is the CK home candle a value for how long it lasts, but that it lives on as a chic container for your home, forever. when is the last time you enjoyed a scented candle container after the candle is burned?
hand-carved in italy- so chic. (please ignore that i need to repaint my mantel :-)
when my orchid dies, i'm repurposing the container to hold paint brushes on my desk, and after that, who knows? i'm also thinking of splurging and buying the "midnight" black version of the candle for my black and white powder room because i think they are so darn chic.

thank you calvin klein home!

Hi Christian, Love the marble "pot"--but your orchid doesn't have to die. When she is finished blooming, place her in a south-facing window; water lightly a couple of times a week; mist every day or so and she will happily bloom again and again. Don't forget to love her a bit also.
