What is up with me and lighting recently? I have no clue but I'm in love with candles. This isn't a recent new love of mine; it's been around for ages. As a kid I was always fascinated by the flicker of the flame and the smell of a fresh candle. Now I'm obsessed with how candles look within a fireplace. Romantic, enchanting, mysterious, and all the above is what I think of when I see various sizes of white pillar candles in a fireplace. Since I love fireplaces but don't think I'd ever have the patience to clean one, this is definitely on my list of to-dos.
