Actually burning candles is a hard thing for me. I recently heard a TV designer say, "Candles are meant to be burned, not dusted." Oops. BUSTED. But honestly, candles are so expensive! I love candlelight, but I find myself reluctant to burn candles, because then I have to replace them.
Check out these toile candles, though. Aren't they pretty? I made these myself by decoupaging napkins onto plain $1 candles. Seriously--all it took was a couple of cheap candles, a pretty napkin, some Mod Podge, and a few minutes.
Now I can burn these all I want, and when I need new ones, I can just make some more! Thank you, Manuela, for that idea!
Yes, I'll be glad when it's spring. For now, though, I've made peace. I've surrendered to winter. Old Man Winter was going to win that fight, anyhow.
How about you? Are you enjoying the snuggling season, or are you longing for spring?
