Grain Grinder Candle Sconce

While “pickin” at the Goodwill the other day I found this grain grinder.
My kids made peanut butter and cashew butter with it that same day. It was fun (and messy).

I actually love the metal and it attaches just right to my new/old desk top.

This candle happens to fit inside it perfectly.

The table is a drop leaf. It works well as a desk. It reminds me of my grandma’s old dining table.

As I create this post I am reading my reminder of my niece’s birthday on the chalkboard. I better jump on Amazon and send her a gift.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a fun day!

How cute is that? I love how you can make peanut butter out of and use it as a candle holder! LOL functional! I have an old meat grinder that is similar. My mom used hers all the time. Love memories like that! Hugs , Leena
