O sure… I may come off as a know-it-all, with my tips and suggestions – but I am also the first to admit when I’m not. In manysome cases I am even an idiot.
So today’s tip is something that hit me in the forehead with an audible ‘DUH’.

My ardent wife and I enjoy lighting candles in our bedroom. It sets a wonderfully serene, sultry mood, and the dancing lights are a pleasure to watch wrapped in our warm sheets.
The problem has always been… that ‘someone’ (where are those servants when you need them) must, at some point prior to sleep, extricate themselves from the aforementioned warm sheets to blow the damn things out.
Sometimes its just easier to not light them at all.



We burn them in small glass holders, and they go out by themselves in about 2 – 3 hours.
My clever wife had the idea to put up a small shelf so we could easily see the happy flames flickering from bed.

Whenever (oh my) I get my bedroom done, yes to shelves. yes to tealights.

Just make sure you get the mondo tea-light bag. You won't want to run out of them.
