~A Candle to LIght the Way~

I have recently discovered a new love! Yes, I did it again...I have found something else to collect. I am really starting to think I may have a problem...LOL!

I have been collecting electric candles with silicone bulbs. I love how they look setting on a table. They also make wonderful nightlights! They add such a warm glow to the room and I really like how they look when all the lights are turned out. Every time I go to a craft store, I pick at least one up. So far, they have been fairly inexpensive and worth every penny.

What do you think???

I also wanted to share a little trivia with you that my good friend Linda sent to me in an e-mail. This August has 5 Sundays, 5 Mondays, and 5 Tuesdays, all in one month. It happens ONCE in 823 years! So we should try to enjoy this August it is one in 823.

I also wanted to apologize for not visiting many of your blogs more often. This is a very busy time of the year for me. When things calm down at school you will be seeing much more of me.

Thank you for visiting Yesterday Once More. I appreciate you stopping by and I hope that you will come back when you can. Always remember "There are two ways of spreading light: to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it."

All My Best,



I love all your lights..nice collection you have going on...I too have quite a few of them.. makes a room so cozy and yes! GREAT nite lights...

Great timing, Dan. I'm on my way out to buy a candle for the chest in the master bath. You have some nice little ones. My birthat is 8-23, so your trivia is even more special to me!

I have the same passion Dan...I can't tell you how many we have lit in our home. It is so comforting to come into a room in the night with the soft glow of the tiny little light - so warm and inviting. Perfect.

Jeanne said...

Love your variety of lights. I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your articles in A Primitive Place. I hope you continue to write for them

I love your little lights Dan, I have several of them in my house too, and they look really cute with little berry wreaths around the base of them too ! I use the silicone bulbs on nightlights that I plug into the wall & put a little berry wreath around it too to make it more decorative ! Your house always looks so warm & cozy ♥

I have those little lights everywhere too, even places where there aren't outlets!! I love the look of them, such a warm , homey feeling!! I also have alot of the battery operated flicker lights, one of my newer "addictions", completly harmless :)
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Dan,
I don't know why but for some reason I've been leaving comments and they aren't posting. Strange. Anyways..I too love the lights. I have them in almost everyroom (sometimes more than one in every room). Keep collecting, you do such a good job with everything!

Hi Dan

Love your candles-they do add a warm touch. I love them too and have them glowing in almost every room. For some reason I love them glowing in the windows during the winter months-a warm welcoming greeting!

Thanks for the August trivia-that is too wild???

Enjoy your school year and your wonderful collections!
