Every year when I take these candles out of storage, I am so grateful that they are still in one piece. I don't mind that they are showing their age because, after all, my husband and I bought them for our first Thanksgiving after we got married. They were one of my "must haves" because my mom had had them in my childhood home-in fact, I think just about every home had a set of these candles way back then! If I remember correctly, they were readily available every year at Woolworths.
I'm still using the Pilgrim hat flower pot that Jen made me many years ago and the set of Pilgrims I made back in the day when I was totally obsessed with ceramics! I think I continue to use them because they're cute but also because I truly don't believe my eyes were ever good enough to paint those infinitesimal features on them! These days I'm lucky if I can see the Pilgrims themselves-with my glasses-lol.
