What Is It With Us Girls And Ikea Candles....

 I went on a little trip out to Ikea and I think I went a little candle crazy.....

I just couldn't resist....One pillar candle wasn't enough, or two, or four, or seven.... I don't know why I needed 40 church style ones, but I did and I do....And even though we have electricity in our village, that works very well and no talk of any power cuts on the horizon I needed these candles. Maybe it was the fact that they were all in the sale, maybe it was just the delicious colours that drew me in, like a bee to honey....

Whatever it was, I love them and when I love something, really love something, one just isn't enough. I guess I have one of those kinds of personalities, one cupcake is never enough, or just one piece of chocolate, oh no, I have to have the bar. If a see a pair of shoes (cheapish) and I really love, I have to have a pair in every colour. I am also a gal who loves her candles, I love to watch the bright lights flicker on dark nights and I instantly fell in love with these gorgeous candy colours and thought were so summery.

As for the Rosali curtains and throw I saw.....well they kind of fell into the trolley too. More about that another day....



  1. uh oh ... looks like I will be dragging the Family Plum to Ikea this weekend!!

  2. I would love to leave a comment but i have to get to ikea Mary lol!
    Love Kristina xx

  3. Oh it just so happens I'm off to Ikea Warrington on Sunday. Yipee!

  4. I love Ikea - I think they are thinking of building another Ikea in Preston which would be so much more handier than popping to Warrington. I'm after a rug for the Kitchen to put under the Kitchen table but a hard wearing bright colourful one.

    The candles are lovely - might light my apple scented one this evening.

    Happy shopping

  5. Oh no...............when I went to Thurrock, Lakeside last weekend we run out of time (the kids out of energy) and so skipped going to Ikea! What a mistake!!!

  6. These of course needed to be bought, i would have done the same - they are fabulous colours :o) Scarlett x

  7. Lovely...I just can't resist filling my trolley whenever I have a visit to Ikea!!...I'm going next week and now I have had even more encouragement...such pretty candles!
    Hope you have a lovely weekend,

  8. Oh we went the other weekend, yes guilty loads of candles fell into our trolley. Was steered away from certain bedding and material though. ~x~

  9. I know what it was...the polka dots :)
    No one in their right mind could go past the polka dots.

  10. These are very best candles and there are no any issues of any power cuts on the horizon. It is very needed candles. Maybe it was the fact that they were all in the sale, still now. These are very delicious colours.
