Accent Color

I went to Hobby Lobby yesterday.  The gift cards from my birthday were burning a hole in my pocket, so to speak.  I had a few things in mind that I "needed" for bare spots in the house.

Last week I had gone to Kohl's to get part of Mickey's birthday present.  I found some candles I couldn't live without.  Let me rephrase that.  I could live without the candles, it was more the color of the candles that I "needed" to add to the family room.  I have been on the hunt for some deep pumpkin/reddish-orange items to add a pop to the blue and green I've got going on in the family room.  The only thing I have is the flower ball on the mantle....

...which I love.  The flowers needed some assistance in achieving the pop I want.  So the candles were perfect.  Besides being the right color they also have a lovely fragrance that reminds me of pumpkin pie.  Thankfully the smell doesn't make me hungry.

So I've had these candles sitting out for a few days.  (Kade saw them and called them smoke bombs.  Not really the reaction I was going for.)  They needed a little something to help them stand out.  I found that something.
Accent Color
These candle stands really give them some importance.  Don't you think?  The best part is they were 50% off!  I'm still on the hunt for more of this lovely color but I'm having a hard time finding it.  Every time I think I see a fabric/pillow/rug/wall art with blue, green, brown, and this orange it turns out to be red and that is not what I want.

Stay tuned for more of the items I picked up yesterday.  I plan on getting some projects done in the next few days.  In fact I started one today but I don't know if it's going to turn out.  The paper has bubbled up from the glue.  Not sure what I'm going to do about that.  Live and learn, right?  Or should I say craft and learn?

I love the smoke bombs. Actually if he would have been really thinking about it, he would have said that they were specifically Green Goblin's pumpkin bombs.
