Friday's Faves...Cozy Candlelight at a discount

The day may be gray and gloomy, 
(although we've had quite a run of beautiful weather here in Portland, Oregon),
the floors may need mopped,
the paint on the walls or woodwork may need a touch up,
but light a candle or two or three
and all of those things seem to fade away.

But candles can be pricey,
so what's a girl to do?

Figure out which brands and scents you love,
then shop the discount stores!
Ross, TJMaxx, Marshall's and Homegoods are where I find great candle bargains.
The candle in the photos above is by Laura Ashley and purchased at Homegoods.
I notice that the Laura Ashley candles are softly scented, 
which I find important since overpoweringly scented candles give me a headache!

This jar candle is a Yankee Candle bought at Ross for $8.
Beats the original price of $24 doesn't it?

This is another Laura Ashley candle.
This one was purchased at Ross.

Did you know Mrs. Meyer's, famous for their cleaning products, makes candles?
On occasion I've found them at Marshall's, 
but they also go on sale after the holidays at the Mrs. Meyer's website.  

The first weekend of November we'll be setting our clocks back an hour.
The evenings will be darker earlier.
I say that's a good reason to go buy some candles!

It's almost Friday, friends!
Hope you have a 
a BLESSED weekend!

  1. Thanks for the tip about the Laura Ashley candles. My husband doesn't like an overpowering scent which keeps me from burning candles around here. Your little touches are always beautiful.

    1. I hope you can find some in your area...I've tried several of her scents and they're all mild.

  2. Had never thought of buying candles at the places you suggested. Thanks! Love the way your home feels.

    1. Thanks so much, Julie. Discounts on something you're "burning up" is extra nice!

  3. I don't know why candles are so pricey. I am with you and love to find them on discount.

    1. I agree Elaine, and it's fun to try different ones.

  4. What pretty pictures of your home! Cozy! I love candles, but usually only buy them at a discount like you do. I have some lit myself right now:)
    Thanks for what you said on my blogpost... I love when you visit, Elizabeth!

    1. Thanks, Leslie...I worked all day today rearranging some things in my house and doing some purging. Holidays approaching does that to me!

  5. I just found some on clearance at target and stocked up.

    1. Target is another good place...and Bath and Body Works has good sales at times as well.

  6. I've been digging and sorting through my candles and finding I need to replace some - and add more! Time to take a 'road trip' to Home Goods, Marshalls and beyond! Your home looks so cozy with the candles lit.

    1. I have some old pillar candles I should probably throw out...but I can always use them if the electricity goes out!

  7. Dollar General--home of the best candles ever around here--and super-cheap!
