One thing I have always wanted but have never able to use in my home are candles. Decorating magazines use them in such elegant ways. I dream of having the "magazine" home one day and not in a white-trash-family-life mag. When I am totally pet less and young childless, I will be able to use vanilla scented candles all over my home. I love vanilla!!
Picture this, I am having an intimate dinner party of 15 or so of my closest friends with lovely tapered candles, our only light at dinner hiding the fact that I can't actually cook for that many people, heh
Or picture this, me in a bubble bath (in a full body swimsuit of course), totally dark except for strategically placed votive candles casting soft shadows on the wall, as all of my stress washes away. Of course the reality would have screaming child on the other side of the locked door begging to get in with the dog yapping at her heals. But this is still a dream, right?
Of course the scented candles would also have a place and reason in the bathroom but we shan't discuss such vulgar things on this family blog now shall we?
