February 5 — cleaning out a drawer where I keep candles
To the trash —
A bag of 8 smallish candles — the type used in Swedish angel chimes. These had once been red, but have faded to pink.
A partially burned set of wavy dark red tapers. Pretty, but unlikely to be used again.
A handmade white Christmas tree candle made by me, many decades ago. Once white, it’s now stained and discolored. I’ll never burn it, so out it goes.
A used up candle in a tin
A used up jar candle
To the thrift store —
A pretty resin candleholder with a flower garden theme -- I love this, but hate dusting it so it's been stored. Someone else might as well be enjoying it.
A set of hanging candles with a gingerbread man theme
A floating candle in the shape of a mitten
2 small figural Christmas candles — one a drummer boy and one a toy soldier
3 jar candle toppers — so pretty, but a pain to dust, and I rarely buy large jar candles anyway.

And from a few other areas here and there
Also to the thrift store —
* A blue plaid thermos -- I hated to let this go. It's the wide-mouth type and is probably from the 1970s, so not that old. But my daughter didn't want it and my hubby didn't think he'd use it, so out it went. I hope someone witll be overjoyed to find it.
* A large blue glass vase
Also to the trash:
A Folger’s coffee canister saved for storage
Two plastic-covered metal shelf dividers I’d used in craft storage
And that's it for now!
