I recently had a bit of a drawer switcheroo. It was brought on by the fact that our broom cabinet is super narrow and all the dish cloths and rags I use when cleaning where on the top shelf and getting to them was awkward.
So I started thinking I wanted them in a drawer for easier access. There aren’t very many drawers in our kitchen and they’re all obviously taken (have you ever heard of an empty kitchen drwaer?) but I figured I use the candles more in the dining area and living room so out they went.
And there was even an extra empty drawer there after I sorted out a bunch of stuff for charity so there are now actually two candle drawers! I love that I was able to put the chunkier candles, outdoor candles and candle coasters in there too and freed up some space on the shelves.
I'm all set for fall! Speaking of fall, it's rained for two days straight and it's pretty cold so I think I'll light some candles tonight!
Btw, do you light candles on a regular weekday or do you save them for special occasions? I remember when I used to work at IKEA back in the stone ages and spent two weeks in the Marseilles store in France They ran in-store ads over the speaker system and they all ended "et n'oubliez pas les bougies!" (= "and don't forget the candles!") because in France apparently they don't use candles everyday like we do over here and IKEA's big on those votives and wanted to make sure no-one left the store without.
