Happy Labor Day ! Show and tell Monday

My show and tell for this Monday ... some teacup candles in clear glass. Some for the shop and some for the webshop. That is really about all I got accomplished between packing and sending out orders and spending time with my Sweetie. I did spent a bit of time looking out our French doors and watching the birds at the feeder and enjoying how lush and green everything is thanks to the rain. It's important to enjoy the beauty God has given us.

Sure hope everyone has enjoyed their long week-end. If you are like us today will be spent with friends and family cooking out and eating way too much. My wish for you: Friends, family, fun, food and time to relax and enjoy them.

...the winner of the August give away is Carrie Gonzalez of Noelle Garret Designs...I used my favorite number generator...Mrs.Glosser's Math Goodies and entered the total number of posts and number 42 was generated...if you posted more than once you got more chances to win. Thank you all for commenting and visiting my blog.

The candles are pretty. I like the little teapot spoon! I once decorated a small Christmas tree with little spoons similar to that one for my kitchen. I used 1/4 inch ivory ribbon to hang them.

Hi Francie!

I just love your candles. I bet they smell good too. I love to sit and admire all the blessing that God has given us. I love to see the birds here in Florida. I see many cranes all the time. And they are beautiful.

Hope you enjoy the day and just so you know I am still hoping to get a flight.

Happy Labor Day Francie! I like your teacup candles. Now, how did you get that to look like coffee, I wonder?
I am an avid bird lover. I could listen to them forever. Such happy little creatures.

Francie, What do you mean "not much". Your teacup candles are just as lovely as can be and your sentiments are just what we all need to keep our hearts light and on the right path!! Thanks!!

Susan - My Vintage Charm said...

Francie I agree, one must take time to smell the roses and enjoy the outdoors. It was a beautiful weekend here.

Your teacup candles look real enough to drink. Very nice! Love your bird bath. Beautiful! Thanks for sharing your photos!

Hey Francie,
Those candles are so pretty. I'm with you about enjoying nature. It's so true. So many gifts we have right in front of us for free to simply enjoy if we take the time to see them.
Can't wait to see you at the retreat.

Hi Francie!! I love your are you?? I had a great weekend and today it was back to school....

Rosa said...

Those are just too pretty to be candles. I too enjoy looking at our birds. Lately though, I have been less than enthusiastic about the visiting starlings that seem to be eating me out of house and home. I've laid back on feeding any of them hoping the starlings are just passing through!

Debbie said...

Yum, Francie! Those teacup candles look good enough to drink! I'm glad you got to enjoy some "down time" today. :)
