Monday Musings - Candlelight



Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.  ~Chinese Proverb


I love candlelight. I love the soft glow it creates. I love the flickering flames and the alluring shadows. I especially love dining by candlelight. It creates a wonderful atmosphere, it makes the food look more delicious and it makes people look prettier. I think wine even tastes better by candlelight.

































Wishing you all a wonderful week.

Till next time

  3. This is a post that hits home Sharon as I have always loved candlelight. Whether you live in a tiny studio or a castle, it makes your life better at so little cost. I always have candles throughout our home and when the storms strike in spring, we are often the only ones prepared in our neighborhood!

  10. I started out thinking that I would have a favourite, but they were all gorgeous. However, if I had to pick, I would say the lanterns on the stairs or the candles on the stairs...talk about making a grand entrance! Happy Monday! Brenda.

  12. Hi, Sharon -
    With all the thunderstorms and power outages lately (in DC), we've been enjoying lots of candles. Nothing like a candle light! I especially love little votives.
    Cheers,
