Lately I have been using candles to light our home at night rather than electricity. It always amazes me how many lights are left on in empty rooms at night. I have been guilty of it myself ! It only takes a few candles here and there to light our room quite well. I purchased this second hand ornamental birdcage from EBay and decided to place a few candles inside. It changes the mood of the entire room when I light them at dusk. It's so much more relaxing to watch a candle burn than a bulb. Why don't you give it a try yourself?
