Relax... Simple Candle Idea

 Finding time to relax can be difficult, especially during a hectic day... but with this simple candle idea, anyone can have a little 'me time.'  Cup of tea and cozy blanket optional...

Last evening, after clearing the dishes and sending the kids outside with their Dad, I had a little time to myself.  So, taking advantage of the situation... I gathered a few odds & ends pieces of glassware and some white candles, and brought them in to the living room to create a little mood lighting for Mommy.

Here's how you can do it too...  You don't have to use (or buy!) anything elaborate or expensive.  The display only takes minutes to put together.  When you're finished you can put everything back as if it never existed, although it's pretty enough to keep around for awhile if you like...

Candy dish, sundae glass, vase...

Add a votive to show off details. 

 Try turning the glassware over
and displaying candles on the bases.
Just make sure everything is steady
and there's room for the candle on top.

Why not find a little 'me time' for yourself today?
Just sit back, relax, and enjoy!
