Smells great!

I went shopping today.. first stop Michaels. I had a gift card from my son
from Mother's Day and coupons. So I bought stuff to put together a candle center piece and the little angels were on clearance so I had to get them too! I may paint them white.
I found the red Paula Dean candle at Walmart. I love the container and the scent.
It is strawberry shortcake. On the little tag on the jar it
has a recipe for the strawberry shortcake. Clever!
I had the express-it flag candle from my Partylite party a year or so ago. I like it because you can change the inserts with the season.
It's a good day to light candles too since it is so overcast.

I love candles and yours look great. That is a very clever idea with the PartyLite candle and the centerpiece you put together is really pretty.

Hi Joy, Thanks for stopping by BCH. You did a great job with your candle arrangement. I love blues in the summer. Oddly, I have very little blue in my house. I need to work on that!

Joy-Thanks for stopping by my blog!
I didn't know Paula Dean had candles, but if it's anything like her cooking I'm sure it's good!
Blessings!

Hi Joy,
I'm so sorry I overlooked your comment a little while back and didn't visit! Must have been when my Dell was down. I didn't realize Paula had candles out. My son bought me the coolest red,white and blue sundae candle there that smells great. Guess they have a pinkish berry one I need to check out. Your pond and flowers on a previous post are gorgeous. I would love a pond but just don't have the time or cash for one now, like hoe your is. Well gonna run, sorry I neglected you! Lori
