We all have things that give us immence pleasure in life, It doesnt have to be an expensive thing ,neither does it have to be materialistic . That one thing for me is candles. I simply adore them in any size and any colour. Some intricately carved in beautiful shapes and designs so pleasing to the eye ,others just plain and simple yet the aroma equally alluring. The incredible array of scents one can choose from means that that there is always a fragrance there to suit any of my moods be it romantic , nostalgic or just relaxing.
The wonderful scents they produce when lighted , the aroma and essence that fills the air is so wonderful and tranquil that it cheers me up no matter what mood I am in. …..Jovial or tired, stressed or relaxed ,the golden glow from the candle produced by the flickering light is truely awesome. Watching the single dancing flame , casting wondourous shadows against the polished glass table or just sitting on the window ledge is both soothing and bewitching.
Candles, calming and bewitching ,my foremost remedy for de-stressing . I have candles in the lounge , glowing and producing a wonderful ambience of warmth and enticement .The spice aromatic candles burning in my kitchen producing the most wonderful aromas of orange tang, vanilla and cinnamon spice reminding me of wonderful baking and family times.Candles galore in my bathroom ,providing total relaxation from a weary day at work, serenading me with the sweet smelling of lavender and cammomile. Of course not forgetting the jasmine and honeysuckle in the hall way…soo inviting and filling your nostrils with spring freshness just are you enter the house.
So there were no surprise or wild guesses on Christmas day , when I opened my presents.To my joy I found 11 new candles to replace the ones I have used. Some obviously are so beautiful that Iam reluctant to light them but just enjoy having there on display others I am eagerly awaiting to appreciate. I can’t wait to to walk around the house and find a perfect place for them all, but sadly also having the difficult task of having to remove the ones that have served their purpose…..
