In one of my tidying fits I scraped, peeled, and hacked every stray piece of beeswax from the boat. Some melted votives in jars and cups, holiday decorations that have cracked and chipped, candle holders coated with drips of beeswax. I gathered them all up and melted them into fresh possibilities.
(We got these cups at a thrift store, the whole lot of them for $1! We've used them again and again for candles, each time scraping out the wax and using it all over again.)
(Zach couldn't resist pouring some wee candles into our vast shell collection.)
So, we'll head off to our local natural foods store and buy more beeswax. One more thing to keep me busy while I wait.
