tealight candle glow

The Danish people seem to create a feeling of well-being (hygge) by using lots of candle light which puts them in the category of being some of the happiest people; so the thought goes out, that this might be something we too can emulate for our well-being. They light many candles of a evening, especially in winter where the natural glow and warmth, makes you feel instantly relaxed.

" happiness is like a butterfly; the more you chase it, the more it will elude you, but if you turn your attention to other things, it will come and sit softly on your shoulder" Henry David Thoreau

This lovely handmade tealight holder is named abundance so we can remember no matter what our circumstances are we can still find something to be grateful. Enjoy!
