I love candles...
By rights our electricity bill should be very low as in the evenings we have one small lamp on and sit in candle light.
I just think it's pretty and smells nice. I am a total soft touch for a beautiful candle, and Lloyd often buys one for a wee surprise.
Favourite smell... vanilla. Can't beat it. And at Christmas time anything cinnamon.
I've made candles in the past but to be honest they weren't a patch on some of the stunning ones you can buy. I've even tried melting down the dregs of old favourites, but they're never the same!
This one is burning down in a spectacular way. And very, very slowly. Always the sign of a good candle, I think!
