Candlelight

Oh....how I love candlelight! In the evenings, after the kids are in bed....I love lighting candles in most of the downstairs rooms. I love the beautiful glow it gives off! Most of the candles I have lit in these pics are the vanilla scent. I love vanilla!

In my dining room: The kitchen:
Downstairs bathroom (lavendar scent):

The "not refinished yet" living room...LOL:


I hope you enjoyed my little candlit tour around my house! Last night as I had everything lit...I thought...I just have to share this with my friends! :) It's too pretty not to! I hope you all have an absolutely fantastic Tuesday!!!

  1. Love the candles - I imagine that they make your home really calm and romantic. A good friend of mine is 'candle mad' and has dozens lit every night throughout her house... at least it makes Christmas and birthday pressents easy for me to get her... mmm let me think... candles perhaps?
    Am new to blogging and thought to say 'hello.'

  6. I LOVE LOVE LOVE candles, I have them burning all the time in different rooms. I love having one burning in the bathroom, especially if I am having a party and can't keep checking to make sure everyone is using the air freshener!!! Have one in the kitchen, livingroom and bedroom burning all the time. I learned when I went to Real Estate school to check to make sure the wicks are lead free (if it doesn't say lead free, check to make sure it is made in the US, then you can assure that it is lead free) That's my public service for the day! Thanks for sharing your love of candles!

  8. I love candles, too. I have a candle plate that I set my candles on so I don't worry so much about an open flame. I also have a Scentsey burner. It plugs into the wall. My light switch works from that, so every night it goes on. I am such an aromatherapy person that candles always add to my day. Have a great day. Julie

  16. Ins't it nice? I only light candles at our dinner table each night because I never remember to blow them out. I do still use tart warmer lights that add that nice glow and scent to a room.

    Yours are so pretty.

    Smiles,
    Lea
