Serendipity Experience - 28 Let the Light Shine!

My candle nest

As the countdown to Christmas reaches its final week, I have been finally enjoying the benefits of my Christmas decorating. Lighting my candles each night and savouring the cinnamon and apple essence throughout my home is one of these delights.

My Candle Obsession
In fact, It was not until I decided to join Nine Muses Musings prompt of "candles" that I realised quite how obsessed with candles I had become!
Peace at my home!

Every corner of my home seems to have some light shining from it!

Even my children's rooms are not immune! In addition to the Christmas tree lights and the real candles we have on our tree, candle light abounds!
Mandarin Kiss

Not only am I filling my house with candles. But I am even giving them as gifts!!! I particularly love the perfume of these lovely candles I bought from "Shack" entitled "Mandarin Kiss", they smell absolutely beautiful!
Ex Libris Jane Austin

But , being a lover of literature, I think my all time favourite, is this candle and diffuser I bought in "Borders"
entitled ex libris Jane Austin. Which conjures up lovely images of reading by candlelight!

When I read the label on the side of the box it made me realise why I love candles so much!

Have a look at what others are loving this Christmas!
