Fahrvergnugen & Tsunamis...



I have spent entirely too much time today with my knickers in a knot
thinking about tsunamis, so, for a few minutes...I am going to shallowly
focus on candles.
Have you seen these?
PINK POLKA DOTTED CANDLES?
Me either!
Until today...when I saw them at Bee's house!
And, oh yes, I snapped some shots...because, had I been at my
house there would have been no candles to takes pictures of...
since she didn't buy me any!
Seriously?
Seriously!

{excuse my "snaps"...the light was not fab...
so, I used the smoke & mirrors of Picnik to
alter them...and cast blame elsewhere! ;}



She bought them at Ikea! And even though they look different in
each shot...they are literally THE perfect shade of pink! It's
enough to give you the vapors, Miss Scarlett!
{And to be fair...Bee knows I'm not a big "candle" chick...
but for theses...HELLO! I'd make an exception! Wouldn't
you??!! ;}




I believe their Ikea name is "freakinpinkincuten"...I am a tad leary
of these names though...I always wonder if the Swedes are just
laughing themselves silly naming these products for our consumption...
We think we're 'all that' using the store name for our new shelf...
when it really means "smelly cat box"! ;}
Do you ever wonder?

What ever their name...they are PERFECT and I believe they were
a mere $1.99 each! Makes your knees weak, right??!!

{ps...I do know that 'fahrvergnugen' is German...it just makes me
wonder too...plus, it sounds funny! ;}

For a respite from this weary world, be sure to pop on over to Bev's
for more Pink Saturday !

...and now, back to thinking about Japan...those poor souls!

  8. Those candles are perfect. I am not a big candle person either (I like the flameless ones with the remote control from Amazon). They are boring beige. Polka dots or something else would be nice.

    I have been thinking about the Tsunamis and earthquakes too....Long day and night.

  13. Great candles. I love the pink AND the polka dots..they are perfect for Spring...and I have often wondered what others REALLY think when we slaughter their language.

    Did you ever read the Poisonwood Bible...where the arrogant pastor goes into Africa and because he is such a "know-it-all" won't take any help with translations...so, during his preaching he invited everyone to bring their babies down to the river to be baptized. However, by twisting his words he has invited everyone down to the river to have their babies eaten by crocodiles....then wonders why no one shows up. Yeah...Imagine that! xxoo Diana

  19. I love those candles and the holder and her table clothe!! Adore them actually!! I feel so helpless for these poor people in Japan. I couldn't imagine what they are going through. It's just all very sad :(

  20. You are too funny with the freakinpinkincuten. Some of those names are hysterical though, I agree. Usually my sister & I end up in hysterics in the self serve aisles because we can't get the boxes on the carts. I'm sure you wanted to know that. ;) Love the polkey dot candles. Love, love, love them!

  30. I do so love those candles.

    I heard someone say that they should have a marriage counselor at the checkout lines at each Ikea.

  31. I had a good laugh reading about Ikea names. I have Melltorp tables and Expedit cubbies in my studio. It probably means autopsy tables and corpse freezers! LOL Now you've gotten me started! The pink candles are terrific. Hmmm, maybe I need to go to Ikea again. Have a great week! Terri
