I Love: Candles

But not just any candle. . .


Candles on birthday cakes, celebrating a new year.

Flickering lights on Christmas Eve, midnight Candlelight service to welcome our Lord.

Moody candles smelling of myrrh, cloves, and patachouli.

Long elegant tapers on impeccably set tables.


Candles in windows, welcoming and bright.

Luminaria shining against the snow.

Flickering paper lanterns blowing in the breeze.


Halloween candles that create a spell in the night.

Long rows of alter lights.

The glow of candlelight on a romantic evening.


I love candles.

Mmm pathchouli. My friend makes candles and I have scooped up every last one of her nag champa scented ones. My house smells deliciously like the 60's.

Great images...candles really set the mood. Light so much of them during the winter to brighten the house...

You find great photos and I agree about candles, I don't really get the whole flameless ones or the looks like a candle (maybe if you had kids or something) still, they set the mood like nothing else.
