I Heart Candles!

Ok sidebar..

I have to say something about my son's haircut in the second picture! What is it with men (my husband) feeling like they know how to cut other men's (my son's) hair?
Twice now my husband has cut my son's hair and completely ruined it, i.e. those short bangs in the second picture, the one with him eating the ribs!
The first time he cut it, I  had just gotten home from work to find my 8 month old shaved bald. He said that he did it so that my son's hair would grow back thicker! Have you ever heard of such a thing? 



Back to.... I HEART CANDLES
 I found this great old school box.  I love chippy white patina against shinning subway tiles.




I filled it with a candelabra, ironstone, linens and flatware.
Me likey soooo much!






I love changing my centerpieces often! and mean often.....found this oval Barbola mirror.





Filled it with more I Heart Candles!





so pretty...





candles in the winter a dreamy...






don't forget to decorate your candles..

  10. Love what you did with the schoolbox. Great ideas on the candles too. I need to add more candles to my house, but I am very picky about scents. Most smell too "soapy" to me. I am looking for a scent that is kinda like water right now. Also picky about the color. I've been contemplating that I just need to start making my own. Hmmm....
