Big, big candles. We're staying in Studio City in SKGR's family home, where her mother has a strong Mexican theme going on. She visits Mexico often and always brings a little something back. Unlike in the East where folks import lobster buoys and dark, New England colors for rustic charm, Los Angeles is definitely influences by all things Mexican... These candles are just a part of it, but they really are beautiful, big, long burning fixtures. The wax is darker and creamier than anything we've seen (like beeswax), they burn clean and they are affordable. Karen buys hers in Mexico, but you can find them at Dungeonbeds.com, Konstructsf.com, and Cottagecatalog.com in many, many shapes and sizes.
