Monday Love: DIY-candle holders

Happy monday lovelies!
Since the evenings are getting longer and darker now, we need more light in the house - especially candle-light. Although the flames may be tiny, they really do warm us and lighten up feelings as well! These glas-holders are an idea from our latest issue of KidsLife, and they are so easy to make. You cut papaer doillies and fix them with a straw-ribbon on simple glasses. Put a tealight in and - voilá, it looks so pretty!

    Oh dearest, thank you for coming over to visit!!!! WE HAD THE MOST DELICIOUS TURKEY and it was a most pleasant evening!!!! Everything turned out so nicely and it ended up a quiet affair, with only one friend, but that was just wonderful. It was cozy chatting afterwards and we just loved it all....YOU HAD A 3 DAY SPA DAY?????? Now that sounds delicious in itself!!! NOW IT IS THE HOLIDAY SEASON and I just can't believe it! I wish you periods of rest and relaxation as I know you are going to be working very hard my dearest, and so will I! But then I will be getting 7 days off from work so that will be wonderful!

    WISH YOU A HAPPY DAY!!!! Anita
