winter glow {356/365}

I have a weakness for scented candles. They’re everywhere in my house and this time of year I can’t get enough of the scents of pine, spice and citrus. Yankee Candles are my favourite. One small jar candle will scent your entire house, I swear. Love them.

(Yankee Candle people? Can you lower your prices a wee bit please? Y’all are killing me over here)

I also have a weakness for lanterns. Any type, any colour. It’s a problem.

But ties in nicely with the other, doesn’t it?

The word prompt for today from the Mortal Muses is, you guessed it – candle ;)

Up next? Snowflakes!!!

No shortage of those around here ;)

    This is a gorgeous photograph! I am so envious of your live fir tree, we have to have artificial ones here due to the heat, there is nothing as lovely as the smell of pine.

      Thanks! But it comes hand in hand with a LOT of snow ;)

    Lovely image. I think I have that same candle lantern! I will have to try the Yankee Candles sometimes. I feel the same way about PartyLite – wonderful candles but ouch! The price! Thanks so much for linking in with the Muses!

      Well, they’re cheaper than partylite! So that’s something? LOL!
      Give them a try, you’ll love them.

      Thanks C!
      I’ve always wanted to do a candle-lined walkway outside. You know, like in the mags? LOL :)
      I think those people probably don’t get half the snow we do here though. Mine would be buried in under 24 hours ;)

        My mom has done it in snow, the bulbs burn the snow around them & it looks pretty!

          Have you SEEN the amount of snow we get here?
          hmmm … maybe a small torch would work! LOL!

          It does look so pretty. One of these days I’ll get on it!

    Two words – Just beautiful!
    Oh shucks – you know I can’t just say two words about a photo like this, J. It’s absolutely gorgeous! This one brings me into the picture. I can almost smell the fir, and feel the heat from the candle… It’s just beautiful!!!
