I was a tad devastated this past weekend when I discovered that my oh-so-curious polydactyly cat, Dexter, got a little too up close and personal with my Julia Child Prayer Candle and pushed it off the island in my kitchen. Needless to say Julia got a bit banged up, but the lovely designer behind these kitschy candles, Veronica, saw my sad little tweet and quite generously offered to send a replacement. So yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and she texts happy news to melancholy home cooks with bothersome cats.
Those of you who don’t already own one of these fabulous candles will be happy to learn that they’re back in stock! Veronica also does custom orders so if Lidia Bastianich or Mario Batali are more your style I’m sure she’d be willing to work something out with you.
