Battery Operated Candle Vignette


A reader named Leslie sent me this battery operated candle. It also has a remote control. Smart candles! Leslie, thank you so much for this gift.

But that wasn't all. She also sent me a stack of knitted dish cloths. Below is a green one. And they are made so well. Leslie knits them with 100% cotton.


How sweet of her to send me these thoughtful and wonderful gifts. 


And she also sent gifts to the pupsters.

 
A half dozen packets of the only treats that they can have due to their propensity to get pancreatitis. They were very excited about this!

 
As well as a half dozen of these very cute dish towels. In case you can't read it, it says: "Leave me alone. I'm only speaking to my dog today."


Now back to my vignette.

This is the sewing machine table vignette on the other side of my couch that I promised last week to show you. I think the candle fits perfectly in this rather dark corner of my living room.


Above is the remote that goes with it. Handy-dandy!

 
You can see a bit of Charlie on his bed on the couch. And a little farther down, I have something else to show you.


I switched out the canvas paintings. This is new from the Open Box Sale section I told you about at Wayfair.com. 

This is the painting I originally wanted in the first place, but it was not on sale. So I got the colorful larger one instead.

But then recently I was looking at the Open Box Sale items again, and the painting I originally wanted was there! I thought it was meant to be. When would that happen again?

So I cashed out my Wayfair points and ordered it. I hung it on the same nails. Do I need to lower it a bit?

  2. How lovely of Leslie to send you all of the nice gifts. I did have to chuckle about the candle with the remote, seeing how you posted yesterday about society being dumbed down with automation. I guess some devices are pretty handy. I really like the new piece of artwork over the sofa.

    1. Ironic, huh? Well, at least I can't forget it's lit and burn down the place.

  3. Love love love your decorating Brenda, I wish I had the inclination to do our house but we are still in the middle of a bit of renovating and my new couch does not arrive for another month so maybe then I will feel more like it.
    Just wanted to mention that I have replied at least 3 times before (on different days) but my comment has not been printed! Wonder if anyone else is having this problem?

    1. That's because I have comment moderation on. Too much spam. So the comment comes to my email, and I have to manually publish it.

  4. I love your daily posts! You are almost one of the first ones I look at every day. I so enjoy your decorating ideas, esp. with quilts! I am a quilter and you really did a great job on the quilts you made! One of my favorite is your 2 color quilts, I have no clue why I have not made one yet, on my list for sure. I love your small apartment and how you have made it yours, just the right amount of space to clean and organize as well. You do such a good job of decorating, it is very inspiring. I love you contentment of being at home with your puppies. I run around way too much, need to stay home more. Thank you for sharing everyday, I look forward to it. Deb C

  6. Glad you were able to get the picture you originally wanted. Sometimes second best just does not do it. Love the painting peeking out of the box too.

    1. That red painting peeking out of the box was made for me by the artist Nancy Medina.

  7. Hi Brenda~

    What wonderful gifts! I love battery operated candles, mine have timers so I don't need to worry when to turn them on and off. I really enjoy their soft lighting, and like you said, they are perfect for a dark corner of your home.

    I really like the beautiful painting of the flower! I don't think it's too low, especially for being above the couch. When you are sitting on the couch, you don't want to bump it with your head, it's perfect . . . to me at least!

    Hugs,
    Barb

    1. True. Well, I can see the purpose of having a flameless candle safety wise. I won't burn down the place by forgetting I lit a candle!

  8. I love the new painting so much! So happy it went on sale and you got it. Love the colors. What a sweet friend to send all those gifts. I do love the led candles but I didn't know about remotes, now that is pretty cool! Hugs!

  9. LOVELY VIGNETTE.
    Wondering is the MOTHER-IN-LAW'S plant real or faux, because it looks real. I like the red candles in the muffin tin.Thanks again for sharing such a clever idea.
    The new canvas is bright, delightful and so BRENDA ! Glad you were able to acquire it afterall.
    Some advantages of BATTERY operated candles. In some situations, like DORMITORIES,Assisted Living and Nursing Homes REAL candles are NOT allowed for obvious safety reasons.
    THEY allow the beauty, ambiance and glow WITHOUT the DANGER.
    SET them on a TIMER and you won't come HOME to a dark house/apt.,or walk into a DARK room.
    Keep one near your chair or bedside, when the power goes out, you have a LIGHT SOURCE nearby and they are more aesthetically pleasing than a FLASHLIGHT.
    SNUGGLES TO THE PUPSTERS

    1. Some people in apartments are not allowed candles that you have to light.

  10. What a nice surprise to get all those gifts from Leslie! And what a nice surprise to find your painting on sale again! A good day. Maybe the "smart candle" is the other side of kids not being able to spell in this day and age! Ha, ha! I do think the battery-operated candles are a good invention. Especially if you love candle light but have little ones or prowling pets around.

    I love your little vignette in the corner with the candle. The picnic basket is great! I've never seen a turquoise one. Did you paint it? I love the color anyway.

    Nice post, Brenda.

  11. Oh, I just looked at the vignette again and saw that the picnic basket isn't turquoise at all, but bright blue! I still like it in the vignette, but in my mind it was turquoise! Sometimes my mind operates like a sieve!

    1. It's a kind of bright blue. Spray paint I used to have.
