Candles - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!


Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  This week I'm sharing candles through the seasons! I had planned on taking photos of my bedroom this week but I waited until the last minute and my daughter talked me into going shopping with her tonight so no time to take new photos.


Since Autumn is just around the corner I thought I would start with some Autumn candle arrangements I've done in the past!  Looking at these makes me excited for that time of year. It never really feels like Autumn in California until November though!


Here is another one I did in the Spring...



and here is a summer on that I shared a few weeks ago...


I even put candles out on my patio...


More summer...


This one below I did for New Years...


and below are some from Christmas...




Oops out of order, here is another summer one...


This has nothing to do with candles but last weekend I went to a winery with my girlfriends.  There was this beautiful large mirror leaned against the wall so I snapped a photo of the three of us that I thought I would share!  I love this white dress I'm wearing. I bought it last Spring at Nordstrom Rack and I think I've only worn it one other time (Mother's Day).  I also have the same dress in navy blue and bright orange. They are a steal at $40!  Every time I go in there I look to see what other colors they have. I think this white one is my favorite though.

Fun times!
