A Bathside Candle

Hello, friends.  I hope you all had a wonderful and special Valentine Day.  My family and I had a great time eventhough at the end of the day I was exhausted.  Pretty glad it's over, entertaining sure can take a lot out of you!

WOWweeeee!  Look at the followers!!!  Welcome all you newcomers, very glad to see you!  I hope you get comfortable and stay awhile because I just LOVE company!  And, of course, that means we're just 10 away from blog candy!!!  So I hope everyone who already hasn't gets to voting!!!

I do have a little project I worked on on Friday evening to share.   I love relaxing and winding down in the tub by candlelight when I get a chance, but I'm always so aware of a fire when they're lit.  Anyway, I had these battery candles (hubby and I both LOOOVE candles) I purchased from QVC and was tinkering around with how to decorate them for my bathroom and I kind of liked the way this came out... think we can use them all over the house...

Each picture was taken under a different lighting.  I love the glow of the first one where the room was darker.  If you like it, I did a cut file for it.  Of course, I used transparency for the holder and just plain cardstok for the base.  I used a candle at the top and under the base, but remember...  battery operated candles only!!!  Decorate it any way you'd like!!! 

I'll be seeing you!
