There has been a lot of talk about enjoying old fashioned candlestick holders. These are not old but have an old touch to them. I love watching the wax drip down the side and the flicker of the flame. The bottom picture is of an owl I bought from Cracker Barrel last weekend when my youngest son and I stopped in for breakfast. The owl has a tea light in it that makes it really glow. I love owls. My friend Flora at Wildflower Meadow loves owls too & she was able to get a nice picture of a real Great Horned Owl. Go and check it out! I think I may leave my Owl out on my fireplace year round.
I am so thankful for many things but I don't voice it enough. God has given me so much. I can go and eat with my son, buy most anything I want, I have good health and so does my family...the list goes on. My friend Marci made me think about this and on her blog she asked that everyone leave a comment with something they are thankful for. I would like you all to do the same. With the anniversary of September 11th here....we have sooo much to be thankful for. "Giving thanks always for all things unto God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ" Ephesians 5:20

Tina, I love the candle holders but I'm not so sure about the owl. Looks like something that might scare you to death if you encountered it in the dark!

The candle holders are beautiful!! I also love the look of dripping wax. Like Flora, I have a soft spot for owls. I think yours is just darling!

Oh I love your owl! Beautiful! And Cracker Barrel? YUM! We don't have them on the west coast, but I've enjoyed visiting some during road trips. They are a step back in time!
Hugs,

I am most thankful for Jerry and my 3 kids, yes all 3 of them (even Lacy who can be a handful because she keeps me kicking).

By the way, that owl has some HUGE freaking eyes but I like him. You should set him out for Halloween.
