Fact No. Fifty

I LOVE candles! I have quite a few, buy am always buying more as I burn them constantly. My favorite scents are cinnamon and vanilla. But I like almost anything except heavy floral scents. Tealites are what I burn most often. I learned a lesson recently. Sometimes the plastic cup MELTS that some tealites come in, and is a definite fire hazard! I was lucky and the fire was contained.

Oh, me too!! I LOVE cinnamon! And anything natural... except flowers, too! However, I have learned to put them up HIGH because the smell of burning Desitin does NOT smell good!!!

Boy have I got a 'miracle' story for you! I love candles too by the way! My hubby and I had just sold our condo and moved to our new home (back in 1998 or so)... in the process of going back to the condo and cleaning up and all we left a candle on the bathroom counter on and unfortunately it had a floral piece on the bottom of holder. (The city turned the power off during our moveout process) Anyway... we went back the next day and there was a big black hole on the counter top. Nothing else caught fire or anything - Thank you Lord! We were very blessed that the condo didn't burn down! I can't tell you what a miracle that was ~ it hadn't officially switched hands to the new owner's so we would have been liable for the whole mess had it conspired. God is so good! Hugs!
