House and Home

We have always had a no candle rule at our house as my hubby is super paranoid. We both love the atmosphere a few candles can create so we were thrilled to receive some LED wax pillar candles from Mike's brother. They add warmth and comfort to our home and they aren't only child friendly but adult friendly also!   ~ Similar here.

My new best friend, thanks to my sis and her hubby, is my Keurig. Mike doesn't drink coffee so this is perfect as I don't have to brew a whole pot! You can pick these up almost anywhere!

Throw pillows can add texture, colour and life to an otherwise lonely sofa. * TIP* To save $ go to your local fabric store. Most stores sell covers in all sorts of fabrics for around $3 - $7.00 Then, simply stuff and "throw"! DIY coming soon!!!!

With Spring around the corner....hopefully sooner than later, I'm hoping to go beyond the usual spring clean and do so minor and cheap redecorating. Something as simple as rearranging your furniture can give your home a whole new feel.

  1. I like the idea of the candles, Mr Bertie is paranoid about us having live candles burning too. I might need to look into some of these. Good luck for the Spring clean and redecorating, I am doing the same starting next week (have taken the whole week off to tackle the clear out before the decorating can begin)

    Those LED candles are a great idea. They actually look real/waxy. And not as messy as real candles of course!

    Love the blog, by the way. Would you like to follow each other? Let me know!
