Candle glow on a simple mantle...



I played around with my mantle late this afternoon as the sun was going down. 


The beeswax candles have such a lovely soft glow when they are lit. I prefer them to most other candles. I have noticed on the series TURN on AMC they use beeswax candles for authenticity.  They really do give a beautiful light.


A favorite small oil painting...


...complete with a few sheep in the meadow and a simple cottage


...a few green sea urchins 



...and my favorite ivy.


Simple greens and the glow of candles...a perfect pairing for a spring mantle.


Have a wonderful weekend!

Enjoy the day,
Robyn
