While living abroad, I convinced a stoic Czech waiter to let me have a massive log from his pig grilling pit. My friends all got a biiiig laugh at me lugging it home and rolling it up 88 steps, one stair at a time. They named it Stumpy, brought it up as party conversation, asked me how Stumpy was doing. But the joke was on them when they saw Stumpy as a side table in my living room and everyone wanted Stumpy for themselves. What I’m trying to say is, logs are awesome. Which is why Anthropologie has mini gold log candles, and why Lexi on The Proper Pinwheel hacked them. These aren’t candles, but they certainly don’t lose any cool points for just sitting there and looking awesome. And gold.
