How to make a cute candle match display

Thrifty Thursday

Are you a candle freak like me? Stressful day? Just light a candle. Watching a movie?  Just light a candle. Romantic date night?  Just light a candle. Taking a bath?  Just light a candle. Doing quickbooks?  Just light a candle.

Yep that is the answer for me, scent you ask? Just depends on my mood or season. But all in all- the lesson here is if you want to buy Sam a gift you know she will always love- get a candle!!! Tee hee, So with that said. I always have a candle in my living room and nearby I have the dorky hot pink or teal plastic lighter- what an eye sore!! Time to get zesty and cute!!


  • Cute car with lid
