Last night was a candle lit evening with, myself. My mom was on the phone with me after my toddler and 4am-waking husband went to bed. I decided to take some photos of the candle light while the wind roared around the corners of our building.
I loved having the candle light and may try to enjoy it more often plus save on energy costs. I got the candles and holders at hobby lobby half-off. The Tazo tea bottle was too nice to recycle and I'm glad I kept it. I will have to figure out how to steady the candle in it and hold it as it burns down.
I was surprised at how nice it was to sit in the simple glow of the candle's flame. What a blessing from 'bad' weather.
I got some free shopping in this afternoon. My neighbor moved out yesterday and she decided to get rid of all this stuff in the dumpster. It would have been more comfortable going to the store, but I really couldn't pass up the price. The containers below were the first thing to catch my eye as we drove past the overflowing pile last night and I then determined to see what other goodies would lay in store.
The whole list turned out to be:
Unopened christmas paper ( I am planning to do metallics next year too!)
2 Birthday bags
Shelf with hook
Mini food processor
Don't be ashamed to dumpster-dive. It will probably be worth it.
