Polar Bear Warz


One fine day when my mom was cruising garage sales she picked up a bag of random polar bear toys for me.  My kiddo has a big obsession with polar bears so I think my mom has them on her shopping radar always.  Anyways, these toys were for me, to make a candle garden with, although I did let my little one play with them for a few weeks and she has them now that I’m done with them.  I have to say, this garden turned out waaaaay better than I imagined, I really like the look of it.  The polar bear toys are from the movie The Golden Compass.  If you have not seen this movie yet, drop what you are doing and watch it immediately, if not sooner.  This is one of the best movies I’ve ever seen, great story, great effects, totally compelling and it will suck you right in.  I’ve been waiting impatiently for a second film right from the very second the first one ended.  In this candle garden the polar bears are having a war, the two opposing forces rushing to meet in battle, pretty epic if you ask me.  The base is Styrofoam that was used to pack one of my PartyLite pieces and the silver rock-looking things are supposed to be wall sconces to hold tea lights but I removed the holder and laid them flat onto the Styrofoam and I think they look fantastic.  I loooove the way the pictures turned out, I hope you enjoy them!
