Best invention for a romantic decor since furniture was inventerd ...

    First I would like to thank Cindy for hosting the ‘Show and Tell’ this week at and also to all who've contributed. Reading all of your posts has become one of my favorite times of the week, Thank You.

    And now, I would like to apologize to you all for the lack of quality for my pictures this week, the batteries were low and I was in a hurry.

    Flickering candles (I think) are the easiest way to creat a romantic atmosphere in a space, and after being so close to the big fire of 2003 here in the Okanagan, I staved-off lighting any candles for awhile, then I learned of the fabulous candles that are no fire hazard.

    Well to say the least I purchased a set of three and loved them so much so that over time I’ve acquired over thirty of them, they are the one treat I have allowed myself to buy new. I have them scattered all over my home. I my opinion they are the best invention for decorating since furniture was invented. They are made by Candle Impressions and I so highly recommend them that I think home should have them. They are safe oh so beautiful economical as I now mostly only use one electric light in my home.

    When I first put batteries in them, because I have so many, I line them all up on the kitchen counter upside. I pop in the batteries close the covers ad test to make sure they work, and then I leave them off. At the time of my choice starting at one end, I switch the first candle timer switch to timer followed by doing the same action to each candle along the line. Once they are all on and flickering I turn then all upright making sure not to rearrang them, then starting with the first in the line I then place them around my home in the areas I want but so that they turn on in a wave …

   Because they are battery operated, they can be placed in areas where you would never have a lit flame like on top of the china cabinet and very close to the ceiling (even inside the cabinet), or as bookends in a bookshelf. I keep one in the bathroom and one on a floor pedestal candle holder in the front foyer. I have one on my journal table and one beside my white whicker lounge, on the side table (no flame they are wind resistanct), out in the sunroom where I relax and read, and listen to the creek-water go singing by.

    Now the piece-de-resistant’s in exactly 5 hours Tinkerbelle quietly flies around and very considerately turns them all off in a wave. And then returns th following day at the very same starting time and relights them all. So each night I get an ever-so-romantic wave of candles lighting, flickering and they turning off. Safe beautiful energy smart (as each candle lasts for about 700 hours, and they are fabulous during a winter storm when all the electricity is down and I still have my home all lit) and though I live alone now a romantic home and atmosphere is something that I treasure greatly.

 I have looked and checked-out other brands but Candle Impressions is the one one’s I have as I have found they are the best …

    Because they are battery operated, they emit no heat so I can use them all year round depending on the life in your batteries and upon starting to use them I find they last about four to five months.

    Honestly I am not getting anything for promoting these … I just LOVE them so much, they are the one thing that I have allowed myself to buy that is ‘new’ in the past year or so.

    I have some short pillars (these do not have timers), but mostly I have the 8” pillars (all with the convent timers) (which are a mix of the plain and the scrolled ones. Oh and I forgot to mention that these candles also have a very faint pleasant vanilla scent also ;-)

    The company has many different kinds and models, but here is the link to the ones I have

    And for those who have asked, ther is a place on he manufactures lik that you cn find the nearest store that carries then near you, or ... I purchased mine though QVC; here is the link to QVC and I just input " candle Impressions timer" in their search engine, to get a selection of all their timer candles

    If this link does not work, just copy it and then past it into your http:// (address) window which should be near the top of your screen.

P.S. I now see that there is also now available a graduated-hight set, which I did not know about, so now ... I have to treat myself again, and get a few more for the coffee table and hall way, scapes. And maybe one for the patio table also.

Oh dear me, here I go again ... as Wilma and Betty used to loudly proclaim "CHARGE IT"

Until next time

That is so neat! I have a battery candle in my daughter's room but I've never seen them with timers!!!

Hello Cindy :-)

Very please to meet you, and thank you for hosting this wonderful forum.

Yes the timers in these candles make them so special. It is like I mentioned,, that like your own private candle fairy comes in each night and lights them, and they are perfectly safe; you can put them anywhere.
Inside of cabinets (pumplins or anything enclosed) near the ceiling, inside of an artificial flower arrangement so it lights-up each night, in a baby’s room, an they are wind resistant so they are grand for outside also. On stairs, sitting in a live plant; the places are really limitless ...

And, they are fantastic when the power goes out to ;-)

I love the battery operated candles too but haven't seen the timer ones. I want some! Went to the web site you have posted but when I click on shopping page, it only goes to the sales page and I don't see the timer candles on there. Maybe you can direct me a little more. Thanks!

What a great idea. I love the idea of the candles turing on as if my magic and then turning off. Thank you for sharing.

Rosie@Journey to Charm said...

I'm going to have to get some, too. I love burning candles, but in the summer its too hot. Thanks for showing.

Sheila said...

This is the neatest thing. I am going to go searching for this too. love your post .

Vicki said...

Wow, those are fantastic! I love the idea that they go off and come on by themselves! I, too, am afraid of forgetting and leaving a candle burning. I sure don't want any fires! Thank you for sharing. I am going to the website to have a look. Thank you for stopping by Bunny Cottage for a visit!! Blessings to you!! Vicki

I too have discovered Candle Impressions from QVC and bought a bunch for Christmas gifts last year....and of course, kept about 8 to 10 for myself.
I still haven't purchased the ones with timers....maybe I'll have to go over there and take a look!!!LOL
Thanks for sharing.

Those candle's sound wonderful. I have one, not with a timer though, and I really love it. I never have to worry about leaving it on when I go out. Glad to find another Canadian blog. Hugs, Cindy S.
