. . . so says the Acme store-brand matchbox sandwiched between two of this week's photos.  Well, they got the "camp" part right.  After all, what better word than "campy" to describe a necklace that features felt flames? Neckwear notwithstanding, you won't catch me around a campfire any time soon (and not only because the glue in that thing is flammable enough to take out a Winnebago).  At least not unless I find myself as a movie extra in a scene that calls for toasting marshmallows around a bonfire on a cozy beach or in a creepy clearing (depending on if it's a romantic comedy or a slasher flick. Who am I kidding?  Of course it's a rom com; I can't even cook a steak without getting squeamish ).  

Faux film or not, I shouldn't mock matches.  I was mighty glad to have mine last week when the power went out.  Ditto goes for the candles that I usually eschew.  Lemon curd custard and nasturtium nectar smell more sweet than sickly when they're illuminating your cave of a campsite, er, casa.  The only drawback?  Having to put my latest glue-clogged project on hold.  Safety first, senoritas.
