I have a small obsession with candles.
some girls would spend all their money on shoes, or clothes, or makeup.
i just want candles.
its just one small thing that makes me happy.
I like to burn them all day on the coffee table.
(which I'm sure will end when miles starts becoming mobile...)
and on the kitchen table during dinner.
not to be romantic.
just to be happy and smelly. the good kind of smelly.
lucky for me (and wade), this small obsession is a cheap one.
ikea rocks in its (cheap) candle selection.
and they smell so good!
i have a candle holder that holds 7 tealights.
and i think its basically awesome.
and i'm done talking about candles.
but i could keep going if i didn't think it was going to annoy the heck out of you.

I love the look of candles, but I have to be honest, I am a bit of a worry wart and get to scared to light them. I am too afraid of starting a fire, I know that is ridiculous:)

I LOVE candles and I have a whole collection of 'em packed away somewhere because I couldn't burn them while I lived at home, my mom has asthma. And now that we've moved to our own place [forever ago], I want to get them out, dang it! I love 'em! :)

I love candles also. I do the "scentsy" thing. My neighbor sells them, however, I regularly buy from walmart instead of the really expensive ones. Shannon has a "problem" with candles also, ha,ha!

I love candles too. My problem is that I want to burn them all at the same time and my house starts smelling crazy. I'm too impatient to just burn one at a time :)

I love that one that holds all of the little ones! We didn't burn any while I was there...but for that I am grateful seeing as there is no escape from that little place in case of a fire. Yikes.

I love candles as well.. Except that I think that Scentsy are a ton better! My sister sells them. Her littl boy dumped it on him and he was fine.. so maybe you can do those when Miles gets a little bigger

We love candles too. One year I bought one of those candle warmers and kept it on top of the piano. It was lovely and smokeless and smelled wonderful all the time. Then Dane and Rhen had a pillow fight and a stray pillow went flying and knocked the totally full candle jar of MELTED wax over and it immediately soaked into the carpet...the new carpet. It was pretty terrible and impossible to clean up.

I share the same love for my scentsy burner :)

Mmmm, a nice hot bath with candles... if I only had a bathtub. Dang. I love candles too! Use 'em all the time but really wish I had a sentcy.

I have a small obsession with the colour taupe. Wear it all the time & use it in design all the time. But I can't really think of anything else that I am obsessed with.. clothing, cosmetics... But I really don't have quite the collection of those items as you do candles.

Okay I love that you love candles!!! I'm totally the girl who would buy new shoes or a shirt, but it's cute that you have an obsession with candles.
I LOVE that candle holder, and I'm positive that because of this post I'm going to be burning candles more often :)

I like candles that smell good... but they never seem to smell good long enough. I don't really use candles that much. I'm glad that you love them, because someone should! ;)
