Bear-ly Funny, and a Contest!

I forgot to show you these beeswax candles I found at a Christmas bazaar.  Are they not darling?  The only problem --  I don't think I could bear to actually burn them.

"Bear" to burn them -- get it? 




And now for something really fun:  Better Homes and Gardens magazine has just opened a "Save My Room" contest.  Enter a photo of a room in your home that needs some decorating help, and get a chance to win a room makeover by master decorator, Stephen Saint-Onge.  The makeover will include painting, furniture and accessories, and the winner's room will be featured in the November issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine and on their website as well.  Wouldn't that be fun?!  Go on over and enter, and tell them Mary sent you.  :)


  1. Too Cute! I wouldn't be able to burn them either Mary. Cute find!

  2. They are darling! I couldn't bring myself to burn them either =)

  3. hi mary,

    i just found your blog via cynthia at cynthia's cottage design.

  4. they are so adorable...but not burning them makes me think of that last essay by Erma Bombeck where she talks about the rose candle that she never burned.

  5. Hi Elyse,
    Welcome to Little Red House. :) I'd say something funny, but I just can't think of anything right now. Aaacccckkkk!

  6. Do you think if I just took a photo of my house they'd get the hint that the whole thing needs help??? Love beeswax candles and those two are wonderful!
