Simple Pleasures: Candles is a beautiful little book (CD-sized) that offers over forty ways to use candles to decorate, create ambiance, and warm your house even in the summer months. (Do this by replacing the logs in your fireplace with a selection of substantially-sized candles.) Also included are inspirational quotes and ways to craft Candle Pots (perfect for a table or sideboard arrangement) and Candle Collars (great for dressing up a candle to then give as a gift). Here?s a selection for bathing by candlelight:?I love to bathe solely by candlelight. The warm glow gives a relaxing atmosphere to dream and let stress melt away. I used to live in an apartment with a nice-sized bathroom shelf that accommodated a dozen votives, but recently I moved and there seemed to be no suitable place for my candles. I thought I would have to give up this pleasure, but then I put up corner bracket shelves and mounted candle lanterns on them. Now, even when the candles are not lit, my bathroom has a wonderful exotic flair that everyone comments on!?Ah, there is nothing like staying at home for real comfort. ?Jane Austen

Page 3 - For we are not sent into this world to do anything into which we cannot put our hearts. We have certain work to do for our bread, and that is to be done strenuously ; other work to do for our delight, and that is to be done heartily ; neither is to be done by halves and shifts, but with a will; and what is not worth this effort is not to be done at all.
