How about those candles?

Written by Sue, Friday, September 13, 2013         beautiful pre-fall day temps. 80's

Do these candles look real to you? Grin~ I found these flameless LED wax candles last year just in time for Christmas, they were half price and I had a 10% coupon off. They run on AA batteries and last for months, here is the neatest thing about them... there is timer on the bottom of the candle that turns the candle  on automatically at the same time each day, and it stays on for five hours, how neat is that, plus they flicker like a real candle. I liked them so much I went back and bought  more, I have them placed in sconces, in table arrangements and have enjoyed them all year, and now I am about to place them among my fall decorations, I love coming home at night and walk into my  home that has flickering candles spread about, it gives me such a warm feeling.

It has been a busy week here at the farmhouse, next week seems to be moving in that direction too.

I love candles and lights!

I love these...I think I am definitely going to pick me up a few. I am thinking at maybe Bed Bath & Beyond? Bet your home is looking all warn and Fallish like.. (smile) Enjoy your week-end sweet Sue!

They look beautiful...where did you find them? I have one purchased in a gift store for a pretty penny and it does not have all these wonderful features.

Hope that all this busyness means the pantry is filling to overflowing and that the house smells great!

I do have to say I thought they looked real and I do like them best. I will have to get some of those too for arrangements. I hope you got to rest a bit.

Well, what in the world? Hahahahahaha...that's a new one!

What a great idea to be on a timer! I love candles, but I always forget to light them. :)

I love your candles! They are so "real" looking! Candles do make a house so cozy, don't they?

Happy weekend to you!

Oh, who ever dreamed up these is just plain brilliant. I have several of these and absolutely love them and love that they come on automatically. Makes for such a homey feeling.

Happy weekend!

Oh, beautiful candles. Yes, at first I thought they were real:). I too have one, which my husband got for me but it does not have timer. It is a wonderful feature.

The candles are beautiful, Sue ... and I can't wait to see your lovely farmhouse decorated for Fall. It's always so warm and "homey" looking.

I love my flameless candles. I use mine year round. During the Summer, I use them as night lights around our cottage. I just keep changing the timer!

Cheryl @ TFD September 14, 2013 at 2:32 PM  

I love these! They would be just the thing for my house. I wouldn't have to worry about the kitties burning the house down. :) Would you mind sharing where you found these? Have a happy weekend!

Elena September 17, 2013 at 12:56 AM  

Wow, I have loved battery candles for a long time but these are amazing. I would love to find some of those. I think I will need to go shopping!

Angela September 18, 2013 at 10:24 AM  

That is a great idea! I love how candles look, but so many people (and dogs) running through my house that real ones leave me a little anxious. These would be perfect.

Paula Fraker September 20, 2013 at 7:06 PM  

Hello, Sue~ your candles are just PERFECT!! And the tiny little dress shoes made me *squeeeal*. LOL
Hope you are having a wonderful week.... fall is almost here! YAY!!!

Sharing thoughts from my heart with you,

The farmer and his friends
Thank you so much for coming by, please come and visit anytime.

~Welcome home~

This blog is dedicated to my dear family who live many miles away, and to you dear ladies , who have a heart for keeping the home fires burning. You, who love and cherish your family, and have a desire to create a home that says "Welcome, you are loved and cared for."

My desire is that when you leave that you will be encouraged and know that you too are loved.


The phrase "There's no place like home", is so true.

No matter where I go, I always love turning the key and hearing that clicking sound in the lock of our back door . Even if I have only gone shopping, I am so happy to be home.

Did you know that every home has its own scent, the first thing I do is sniff the air, and I offer a quiet prayer of thankfulness, and for safety.

My decorating style is my own, I decorate with the colors and treasures that are me. One of the things that I have enjoyed about blogging is the difference in how we all view the world, and our homes. Just like our Creator made each of us to be unique, we create our own unique styles and colors in our own homes. I have learned so much from you and enjoyed your homes so much, and have learned so much about you from your homes...

I truly believe that God wants us to have a safe haven to come home too, a place we can claim as our own,... just like us, homes come in all shapes and sizes if love is there it is our home.., if our things are there it is our home. When we add our own personal touches, it is our home

Home is a place we can go to when the storms of life are raging. I often listen to the wind and rain when it is coming down hard and am reminded of the safety of our sheltering home. It is the one place that we control what and who comes in, (well,most of the time. lol)

Sometimes late at night, when I am unable to sleep I will get up and as I am walking across the room, I hear the floor creek beneath my feet, I go, sit, and listen to other sounds that my home makes, a pop here and there in the wall, it is like the wall is talking to me. A home not only has its own scent, but it also has its own sound. I truly believe that a home takes on its own personality, US!!

So why this blog?....
I wanted a place that I could come, talk about, and share of how my day was spent here at the "farmhouse", and about the things that I do to make it a "home". Making a house a home is a lifetime endever, and I might add a joy, as our lives are always changing.
