It Feels Like Fall

It felt like Fall here this morning. Overcast, rainy and cooler temps inspired me to light some great smelling candles and enjoy some quiet time with a cup of tea.

The votives are from A Country Mile, a great cafe, home accents and gift shop in Milton, Ontario. I chose the gorgeous scent of maple cinnamon buns. Yum! The trio of stemmed stained glass candleholders were a hostess/sales gift from Party Lite years ago.


This little bench is just a temporary solution for a coffee table. I found it at a garage sale last year for $3 and painted it white.

It is supposed to get quite hot this afternoon, with heavy rain and thunderstorms, and most of south western Ontario is under a widespread tornado watch. Hopefully everything will clear up without incident because we are planning a trip to the beach with my sister's family tomorrow.

I'm still working on the gallery wall and need to find another end table but I'm liking how our living room is coming together. It was so overcast this morning that I had to turn lamps on for my photos. What are your favourite candle fragances? Do you prefer floral scents to baking scents? I'm definitely in the vanilla and baked goods category. {Safety first of course, I do not leave my candles unattended.}

  3. I'm definitely in the baked goods since cinnamon is one of my favorites. Your room is coming together (those paperclips look cool up there :) I'm a little jealous that you've had a taste of fall already. We're still melting in the heat. Hopefully your tornado watch expires without incident.

  6. Totally depends on the time of year. I'm heading into an apple and cinnamon phase cause of fall, but for summer I was definitely more fresh, fruity, floral. I love it all though, really. I drive Chris crazy!

  10. I had that same fall bug drop in at Mel's Designs from the Cabin yesterday and so I made a table scarf with a burlap ruffle on it...instead of making another "rag bag"...that really go me in the mood for fall, then...the temps in the south are dropping to the middle 80's next frew days...a welcome change...I have a similar leather sofa in our den and livingroom...maybe I'll put a bench in front of ours and some candles too...sweet scents of fall...very nice in the cabin...Mel

  11. There is nothing like a cosy room all lit up with candles at night! I love candles too and have them burning all the time, especially the scented ones!

    Best wishes and happy weekend,
    Natasha.
