Pssst….I Love You!

Yes, I’m talking about you, sweet little candelabra. Do you believe in love at first sight? I do. I loved you the first moment that I saw you sitting all alone on that little shelf in that antique store, just waiting for me to come along.

We were meant to be.

And you were meant to always be kept company with some beautiful flowers. Flowers just make me smile and I knew you’d like them too.

Especially blush pink ones.

Or roses in nearly any color.

Or peonies!

Or magnolias!

And silver! Silver was made to be friends with you. I knew you would immediately hit it off with my previous silver saucière!

And you did.

And ironstone was made to be used with you. It just suits you.

You should always be welcomed with a candlelit entrance! It’s just the perfect effect for you.

I think I want to spend every day with you.

Just admiring you.

You brighten every room you enter.

And when I have company over, I’m so excited to show you off because I’m so proud of you!

I can’t even imagine what it was like before we met now.

It seems like such a long time ago and here it was mere days!

Can we be together forever?

      Thank you so much, Terrie. I have a major weakness for candles. Is there even such a thing as too many? Not in my world! 😄

      Thank you so much! It was pretty easy with this one. The candelabra sort of set the tone and dictated what should follow….don’t you love when that happens?
