A house in the dark

I have had this white metal house for years, but not until tonight it occurred to me to open the bottom and stick a candle inside it. I’m so glad I did.

I have an endless fascination with the lit candles and the way light moves, reflects and warms us. Especially in a dark Swedish evening like this.

  1. The simple beauty of your candlelit house reminds me of a line in a Neil Diamond song –
    “Songs to fill the heart, like white candles on a winter’s night, they touch the spaces between you and I….”

  2. I love how the light dances around in a holder such as that. I really love the scented wax warmers I have. There are a couple of openings in them and the light from the candle is just delightful and magical.
