The Warmth Of Candlelight



I'm a candle-burner.
No matter what season of the year, you'll find candles burning in my home.
I'm drawn like a moth to the flame, they comfort me, console me, wrap me in their warm glow.
Nothing says "Welcome Home" better than the soft glow of a burning spiced-candle.
Do you enjoy burning candles ?

Me too Jo. A funny thing happened though. My filters for the ac/heater had suddenly begun to turn black with soot. I had the heater guys come out. They asked many questions. Finally they hit on the answer. I had begun to burn these candles with a wood wick that crackled. They said that was it. Seems it always happens in churches where candles were burned all of the time. I quit using those candles and never had that problem again.

Candles are a favorite in our house on cold nights and dark days. We had our veranda lined with lanterns on Halloween and at Christmas, we line our path to the front door with luminaries for our dinner guests. Warm and inviting! Have a lovely day, Jo!

I wish I could burn candles, but I'm very scent sensitive. I do have a set of three "fake" candles that run on tiny batteries. (No scent though) -Jenn

I love candles, especially during the cold months. Alas all my candles are packed away. thanks for posting a photo that I can enjoy instead. Dianne

Love the sight and scent of candles... especially vanilla or cinnamon! They exude some of the same comfort as a warm glowing fireplace.

I, too, love that glow, that flicker, that welcoming golden aura of a room filled with candlelight, or just the small whisper of one gleam in a quiet corner.

A Television program used to begin with the words, "All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle.” St Francis, perhaps?

Your own mellow-lit room, so welcoming and warm, calls for a party or a quiet cup of tea with friends, or even the particular close company of one's own self, for a little reflection. Lovely. That kind of light from across a room warms the moment as certainly as a close-by fire the hands.

Nothing more cozy and beautiful than candles flickering around the house, but they set my asthma off terribly. At church services where candles are used, I must sit as far away from them as I can, and still have to use my inhaler. I have battery powered candles in my home, and then use my imagination that they look just a little bit real.

Your burning candles are beautiful. I love candles too. I remember that Tasha Tudor loved candle light and said, in one of her books, "Candles are flattering to an old face". That is so true. I probably need to keep one burning!

Love burning candles as well. Especially this time of the year when the weather start getting colder every day. Beautiful picture you share. Keep enjoying your candles:)

I'm right there with you. But because I'm trying to avoid synthetic scents, I've turned to white scentless pillars and balls. We have a candle factory five minutes away and, of course, they were happy to oblige.

PS, my husband swears I will burn the house down. Pish posh!

This is a wonderful shot. Good job catching the feeling of warmth with all the candles and fire.
