Reading blogs can lead to all kinds of things, including ...  i  d  e  a  s !

I saw something similar to this on Pat's BackPorch Musings and could not 
resist duplicating trying to duplicate it.  I used some left-over lentils, beans, and dried
 peas for my mix. The smallest, squatty candle is the lid from the middle-sized one.  

Now that dusk comes early, we enjoy lighting a candle or two or three while we eat our dinner.

Sharing my craftiness at My Romantic Home's "Show and Tell."

    Your candles are beautiful, Dotsie. I love how you used the lid for one of the holders.

    Thanks so much for the shout out! My beans n things candle is still in the center of the round table. We enjoy having candlelight too.

  2. Very pretty!! I like the whole idea!


  3. I think you've duplicated very nicely. Do you mind if I use "your" idea? We like candlelight too--especially when the house needs a good dusting!! = )


  4. I truly love this, and the plant is so pretty as well.

    Well done!

  5. too cute, Dotsie! Lentils are for so much more than eating. We used them at my daughter's wedding, sprinkled around the centerpieces on the reception tables. It was lovely. Glad to be back, missed ya!

  6. I've done this it.
    Your's look very pretty.
    Coffee beans are great, too, and smell SOOO good while the candle is burning.

  7. I love the idea...the possibilities are endless...I have used coffee beans...I have seen little beans big beans...seeds, all is fun!

  8. Thanks for stopping by. I love that the idea of using the left over bean seeds as part of the decoration. Thanks for sharing.

  9. great ideas! and looks great setting! thanks for sharing

  10. That's a great idea. Looks like pebbles but it's organic. Hope you'll stop by. Jane F.

  11. Those are really pretty!...and I love how you turned the lid into the smaller candle too. Thats one of the great decorating rules, isn't it? Things in sets of three (at least) with variation in size. You did it...with such pretty results...=) Hmm, maybe I should try one...

  12. Hi Podso,
    I love this idea-I may have to duplicate it myself!

    Have a good weekend,


  13. That is a wonderful idea!! I never know what to do with the left over candle jars,after the candle has been burned. I have thrown many away and it seems such a waste.

  14. I like this idea! Thanks for sharing it.

  15. So creative and perfect for Fall. Every time I see the word "legume" I think of it's spanish equivalent, "legumbres" and learning it in 6th grade. At least I think that's the equivalent... Anyways, I always want to say the Spanish instead. Just rolls off the tongue so much nicer.

  16. Great idea and so perfect for the season. We like to light candles as soon as the sun goes down too.

  17. What a GREAT idea! Love it!

  18. I love this idea! It's one I can DO! I went to Bonnie's blog and read about the new Jan Karon book! Thanks for letting me know! Hugs! ♥


I enjoy the conversations that come with comments!
