Blast off!

I miss our collective fascination with all things Outer Space. We've lost our sense of Outer Space as a stand in for the future and progress. These candle holders remind me of that time (though I guess the flames would be coming out the wrong end).

We found these little rocket bases at the big Seattle Goodwill for like $0.99 a pop. I don't think they are vintage, but who cares when they are so cute! We did end up selling them right after our yard sale for around $12 to someone who recognized their rocketshippiness, which made me happy.

  2. Ha! Thanks, that'd be rad to have space rocket egg holders.
