My Love of Candles

When I write, which is every day, I sit at the dining room table. That way I’m near my dogs, my movies, and my candles.

I have a candle in a frosted glass holder exactly like the one in the photo. I keep it lit while I’m sitting there and working. I also have a teapot warmer that keeps my tea hot. It was purchased in Germany and heats the tea using a tea light. I have tapers on the breakfast bar in a holder that used to be my grandmother’s and tea lights on the window sill.

Can you tell that I love candles?

I buy tea lights by the bushel and scour sales for larger candles. I’ve been lucky enough to buy large bags filled with candles from estate sales. Those have lasted for weeks!

What do you use to make your workspace warm and comforting? Sonja

Today is the first week of December, which means you should be three days into your advent calendar. If you light the advent candles, you should have lit one candle last Sunday.

My advent calendar this year holds 24 packets of tea. I love to drink tea and I’ve been tasting new flavors every morning. In the afternoon I’ve been combining Vanilla Comoro with cocoa bean hulls. It’s a tasty treat that smells so good! The cocoa bean hulls came from Peru and give off a wonderful aroma.

If you want the smell of chocolate with a slight hint of the yumminess, but not a cup of hot chocolate, then the cocoa bean hulls fill the need perfectly.
