“A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle.”~James Keller
Today I’m writing about the magic of candle light!
One of these days I’ll get some spectacular photos of my candle chandeliers. For now these will have to do. You can see my dining room chandelier on my post “Paris Party 2″…
and my porch chandelier on my post “Fresh Air Rooms”…
How do you use candle light in your home? what are your favorite candle scents? I tend to like mild, earthy scents like patchouli and eucalyptus in the winter and autumn, and fruity scents like tangerine and lemon in the spring and summer.
My favorite book on illuminating the home with candle light.
We’ve enjoyed candle lit dinners out on the front porch, and in our home more times than I can count. I’m absolutely addicted to candle light. I have a candle chandelier in my dining room, one over the bath tub, and one over our little table on the front porch.
I just went out back and noticed people sharing a candle lit dinner on their porch. This made me so happy! I guess I never realized how the power of candle light reaches me, even when I’m just watching others enjoy it. I hope others feel this when they see the golden lights flickering from my home. How has candle light affected you? Share your stories please 🙂

I like candles in my bedroom. I say that my “signature scent” (in the bedroom) is mandrin orange/mango or peach. The scent is soft and romantic. Refreshing. I won’t go into more detail… LOL 😉
I LOVE candle chandeliers! They are soooo beautiful.
I think watching the candles flicker is mesmerizing. It’s like you can be silent and just let your mind wander. It has a calming effect on me I guess.”
Thanks for sharing, Keri!
