Whole Lotta Love #12 - All Aglow!

 Thank you so much Cindi for a funfilled fortnight! This Whole Lotta Love Chain is a great idea! Check out Cindi's blog here

I'm all aglow for today's love!  Yes I love candles and sitting in the soft glow of candles, enjoying the sweet scent form them too!

They just create a serene atmosphere and even conjure up a bit of nostalgia for me when I think how people had to live and work in candlelight.
 Mind you, nowadays I can cheat and use an electric 'candle' lamp!  The shadows are great too!
 And then there's battery operated ones in jars or prim sconces~




Even tapers just hanging from a peg!


Some candles that I don't want to use as they're so special!

 Soft glow from a lumpy candle on my shelf~

...and my little lantern down the hall ~ welcome home!

Love them and now I feel all cozy and snug for the evening! 


Thanks so much for visiting and commenting!  You are all so great!

Best wishes

  2. We need more glow fun around here:) Your lights are so soft and inviting and comforting. My flickering candles keep running out of batteries because I forget to turn them off at night!! My fav is the candle on the blue board. Did you make it? I am pinning it now because I want one too:) Thanks for your lovely displays. -Steph-

  6. I think candlelight just makes everything prettier! Love all your pictures...unfortunately, I can't burn real candles because of the kitties, I'm worried they'll set themselves on fire...so I have to be content with the battery ones.

  7. I've always loved burning candles they add something to a room. I even like the battery operated ones. A friend had given me one for Christmas one year that was battery operated and I was so surprised to find out that it actually gave off a scent when it was lit.

  9. Oh Christina I too love the glow of candles! I have the flicker candles that are timed so they come on every day at 5 pm and shut off at 11 pm (Steph you should get those). Anyway the glow is wonderful and the smell heavenly! I love the candle in the mason jar! I also love the darling little Valentine stump doll...did you make her? Thanks for sharing and for joining in!
    Be blessed,
    Cindi

  13. Love candlelight. Cozy glow! Especially when you don't have a fireplace! I love the battery candles. Our house had an electrical fire when I was a kid. My mom hates it when I light candles, so I only light the one on the stove! I so love your candle in the pocket on the cutting board! Love it...

    I know where the Old Candle Barn is... Not far away from me... So, when are you coming to the US? I think you need more Americana stuff!!!!! :)

    Blessings and hugs, Kindred Spirit!
