This was one of my favorite candle lanterns from Target. It held a battery powered candle and I had it out on the deck. Problem was I forgot to move it out of the sun and the whole thing melted into a big puddle, batteries included. Good to know it was actually made of wax but it was trash now.
At least the candle was, but the candle holder was soon to be a new treasure for the deck. I was having problems with slugs in my garden and I needed to find a new home for my marigolds, apparently slugs love marigolds. I had forgotten that when I planted them earlier this month.
This lantern was going to be the new home of one of the marigold plants.
