Taking pleasure in the small things …..

P1070163

….. like morning candles while the light is slowly increasing outdoors.

The glass jar with candles is a vintage jar that were used to store all kinds of canned food through the winter before freezers came into every household.
The lid is in 2 parts and I have taken the glass part off so I can easily reach the candles inside.
I have used applique glue to glue down the ribbon to the metal lid part and the lovely heart I have bought at Lappemakeriet.
Feel free to use my idea for your own eye candy!

….. like a furry friend keeping track of my work and the tools.

P1070166

….. like a mug of hot coffee and a new book.

The mug is also from Lappemakeriet - they have it in red too.

Thank you for the lovely idea of keeping my candles in a jar.

I light them every evening when the sun sets and enjoy their glow while I knit...........
