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.
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?
