I love candles. I love the look of a flickering flame, I love it day or night. I love the gentle aroma of a burning scented candle. I like candles that smell like sweet vanilla and makes my husband believe I might be making cookies. I like candles that smell soft and clean and take away any smells of cooking or lingering broccoli or bacon odors. I love the sexy look of candlelight in my bedroom.
I buy and burn candles in my home almost daily. I light them when I am alone, or when the family is home. I have basic inexpensive “Glade” candles, and expensive ones too. My favorite candles are from a company that does home shows, PartyLite. Their candles burn clean, and have a wonderful scent through and through. I once had annual parties to receive hostess specials, but my consultant quit working and I haven’t had one in two years. I really need some new pillars and tea lights and votives ……..well I could use candles. I love candle lamps and fun holders. I little cup is fine, but I love something special that lights up and shows off a candle glow.
Candles are my thing, a small to indulgent passion. I ask my family for their input on scents, but most of the time I buy what I like. I usually have several boxes of small candles and the kids like to pick what they burn in their bathroom or bedroom(the girls have a votive holder or two).
This is in my bedroom
For those wondering, yes I burned candles carefully when my kids were young. No one was ever burned or injured, and I have a theory that you should try your best to not give up things you love and just teach your children appropriate respect for things that are not theirs and are not to be touched.
