My Husband Rocks!

My husband rocks because he allows me carte blanche, in decorating our home. It has become a reflection of who I am, what I love and the people I love. It is very important for me to be surrounded in things I find calming, soothing and beautiful. Since I much prefer the thrill of the hunt most of what I own came from local thrift shops and yard sales. (Sorry future grandchildren, although I don't forsee any fighting over the will! LOL).

Also, he not only understands, but feeds my love of candles. When its raining, or snowing or just wet and dark out I love, love, love to light candles. I tend to prefer the fall scented ones but anyone ol' tealight will do.

This gorgeous glass candle was on the expensive side at $20 from Party Lite. But my MIL bought it for me and I just love it! It glows and the colored glass reflects off the walls.

Ok, so the "Kindness Matters" isn't a real candle but the little plastic wick looks like one! It was $3.99 at The Christmas Tree Shops. LOVE it. The little red candle beside it, honestly, have no idea where I got it. But I use it all the time! The one behind it is a candle warmer. I loooove it and use it as it warms my MacIntosh Apple Waffers. Can't find them anywhere anymore.

I don't typically light this candle, but the base was from my favorite Goodwill store in Hibbing, MN. It cost all of .50 cents!

Also a Goodwill purchase. It was $1 top and bottom! I couldn't figure out why the inside was painted and not the outside. When I first lit it I was pleasantly surprised. I love this candle.

These are just some of my candle collection. It makes me smile to think when he married me, he married my collections. :)

Wishing you a great weekend.

  1. I love candles too. As soon as the days start getting shorter I haul out my jumbo bag of tea lights and light up the house. I put them in tea cups, my favorite star shaped candle holders, green mason jars and just about any pretty container I can find. I don't have a fireplace so I get my warm glow with candles:>) Thanks for stopping and commenting!
