Candles and Cones.

I’m not big on decorating for the change in seasons but this year I have been influenced, ever so slightly, by all the American blogs I read.  Over there it seems like everybody decorates for the seasons and holidays and I love to see all the photos, especially of front porches (I would love one of those things and the house to go with it, of course) festooned with all manner of “Fall” goodies such as pumpkins, scarecrows, bundles of straw, autumn plants etc.  I found loads of photos I could have shared but they’re all copyrighted and I’m too scared to take ‘em just in case they come after me!

Sooo, having said all that, here is my “Fall” decorating.  I told you it was only a slight influence. 

I am getting so much pleasure from these few candles and cones glowing away after dark in their wooden tray on the countertop in my kitchen that I had to link up to Dayle at A Collection of This and That for this week’s Simple Pleasures.

PS. Sorry the picture is so very dark - it looked so much better in my Photoshop Elements organizer.

Kathleen, I think the photo is perfection. There's nothing I love more than the simple pleasure a candle brings.

Always a pleasure to have you link up.

It's warm and comforting. I like it! I actually don't decorate for every season, but there's something about fall...
