Scoring Brownie points

My better half likes to burn candles and I needed to get back into her good books! I made her some candleholders. If Mommy is happy, everybody is happy!
These are easy and quick to make out of whatever is lying in the scrap box. The metal “rivets” are cut off nail heads.
I hope this can inspire someone else to score some brownie points!

PS. She loves me again!

Hi Div,
Nothing like love in the house.
But I think you should add a metal piece at the end of the candle, so you are not burning down the house…
This might be a little drawback in the brownie score!
Fine project, bet they look wonderful in the dark, with the warm light on the wood – and yes, there are nothing like making something with our hans for the special one we love.
Best of thoughts, to both of you,
Mads

Thanks Dudes! Yeah Mads, you’re right. Good suggestion, especially if you fall asleep after a candlelit dinner…..

Div those are lovely I am sure you have scored some brownie points
and if you want to stay in the good books making dinner will help.

Thanks for sharing another wonderful project Div.

Hey Cher! Does doing the dishes help? I’m busy studying the guide to scoring brownie points. Check out the blog in Coffee Lounge with same name!

Dennis, sounds like you know about these things….!

Hi Div, not many people do dishes any more, they have dishwashers,
so if you don’t have one, get one, that will keep you in the good books for the rest of the year.

Nice going, Div. That is one disadvantage to being a woman woodworker; we don’t usually have anyone to make us nice little wood projects! But, on the other hand, when we make them, they are more or less exactly the way we want them, so I shouldn’t complain. ;-)
