Candles are one of the most effective tools for meditation and rituals. For centuries, people have burned candles of different colors to attract emotions, karma, even wealth.

My husband is quite addicted to cycling. It’s possibly a healthy obsession (apart from the cost and recovery time from accidents 😀 ) It certainly keeps him away from home for most of the weekend. He cycles, stops for a coffee and a chat, and cycles some more. The bike is well travelled and often photographed… Read the rest »

I had no idea this old craft would lead to so much paper, glue, and various bits and pieces (called embellishments in the trade) covering my dining table.
