I LOVE candles! I have them in EVERY single room in my house, except my son's room, he likes diffusers! Our sense of smell is extremely sensitive and provocative. A certain smell can send you back down memory lane in an instant OR it can make you run for cover! However, the wonderful smell of a burning candle should not be underestimated,it can change your mood quickly. I have scented candles burning for me as I arrive home at the end of a very long day (thanks to my considerate daughter.)The smell welcomes me and quickly ushers me in to have a seat. We all know what a warm bath surrounded by candles will do for our bodies. Try keeping a candle and a candlelighter in your front entry and light it as you arrive and notice how that smell seems to melt your worries away just like the melted wax of your candle.

I couldn't resist, I don't know if I am getting the "Grandmother" craving or what, but when I saw these little babies in these baskets, especially since I have some of these baskets on my wall! I had to share them with you. This is the BEST use of a basket accessory that I have ever seen, I hope you enjoy!

This time of year makes us naturally want to spend time outside, gardening is, the best exercise, my thighs still hurt(don't ask!) and there is NOTHING like cutting your own flowers and displaying them in your home. I have some amazing pics of some flowers that may "inspire" you to get out and plant your own.

By now you know that Nate Berkus, Oprah's "go to" guy for great interior design will have his own show this summer. This is expected to be a fabulous show not just about design but on several lively topics. So yes, Oprah does it again, however, I am not talking about yet another one of her "children" getting their own show! I'm referring to her always saying what I am thinking, get out of my head, Oprah! She says repeatedly that "Your house should rise up to meet you!" This is so true, our homes speak volumes about us before we ever open our mouths. What type of conversation is your home having about you?
