Everyone has a collection of some sort... Whether it's a collection of "things" or of memories or stories told and untold.... You get the idea. This particular challenge was started by Monica, and you can find her journal entry about "Every Picture Tells a Story" here and play along.
This weeks photo/story:
I collect ________________ (dust bunnies, spoons, dogs, rings, etc). Share a photo of what you collect and tell us how or when you got started with the collection. Is there something you are looking to add to the collection?
This challenge had me thinking... What do I collect, that I could photograph and share? I have a collection of Jodi Picoult books! Nah... I have a jar of sea glass.... maaaaybe..
Then I remembered (yeah, it happens....), that I have CANDLES all around me... On the walls (not pictured), tables, shelves.. you name it. In my bathroom, bedroom, kitchen... I think every room, with the exception of my children's rooms, have candles. Mostly Partylite candles and holders. I buy many of my favorite scents on Ebay ~ Honeydew, Peach, Mulberry, etc... I'm FRUIT FRENZIED! But have been to and hosted Partylite gatherings at my home as well.
I've been enjoying candles for many, manyyears. I do not light them all at the same like this EVER! As a matter of fact, I'm still sneezing from having them all lit at once for this photo (thanks for the idea, Nance.... ;oP)! But, I do light one or two.... maybe three, depending on the mood... more than a couple times a week. I have favorites for certain moods, hours in the day and times of the year.
I hope that whatever it is you collect, whether it be "things" or something even MORE meaningful to you, I hope it brings you many moments of warmth and enjoyment through the years.
Thanks for visiting!
