Christmas Candle

"A Christmas candle is a lovely thing;
It makes no noise at all,
But softly gives itself away."
              ~Eva Logue

   I've made a recent discovery that I love candles! Not just at Christmas time but all of the time and I love the beautiful little votive holders that you can find here and there. On a recent antiquing trip I found the most gorgeous candleholder made of cut crystal. It absolutely sparkles when you light a candle inside it! I put it on the coffee table in the family room and in the evening when everyone sits there I light the candles and turn the Christmas tree lights on and it looks just magical! I took some pictures of my new favorite candle and a swag my Mum and I made this year with a large sparkly red rose and some beautiful dusted berries (P.S. The last photo is of another sparkly red flower that I found this year and think is very pretty). I hope you like them and the little drawing - it is one of a pair that I did in the 'Whoville' style. This week I am also joining two blog parties: Table Top Tuesday and Wow Us Wednesdays. I hope everyone is enjoying the Holidays!
