Before & After Bloghop

Just came across this great bloghop at what you do is take your Straight Out Of The Camera Saturday(SOOC) shot and then you edit it with your photo editing program (I use Photoshop CS3) and you post the before and after images. Sounds like fun so here's mine for this week.

My Favorite Things Saturday

For me,
candles = time to relax
One of my favorite things is candles. I love burning them when I am home alone. They are my signal for relaxation time, soothing time, reflecting time. I tend to gravitate towards the citrus smells, love love love orange and lemon. Candles just plainly make me happy. :)
