Etchie Poo

For months I have been thinking of making a family candle to place on our kitchen table to light when we sit down for a family meal... I found this candle holder at the craft store and it happened to have a removable top, along with a base that you are able to fill with different items... I love this idea as I can change the filler with the season, or even the holiday. Then, I found this tutorial for easy etching and added a monogram to the candle holders base. It was really easy to do and I love the effect... I also added our last name to my 9 by 13 inch Pyrex dish, another wonderful idea found here, an easy way to find your dish at a potluck or barbecue... So, so smart!

Love the idea of adding your name on the bottom of the pyrex, sheer genius!!! Beautiful candle holder, might have to give etching a whirl!
