Firstly, we truly enjoy rains in this part of the country. Second, I am sucker for candle light dinners! Third, nothing screams cozy to me than handmade. Now combine all 3 and you know you are in for a 100% cozy time that’ll warm the cockles of your heart. There is something absolutely splendid about sitting by the candle light, a centerpiece that you have made yourself, while it snows or rains. The soft wisps of candle and the pitter patter of rain on a tin roof while you curl up with a good series or book, kneading with your toes, your softest throw! There is very little in life that compares to this feeling unless ofcourse you have a raging fire and a gorgeous Christmas tree by the side. That compares! And probably even wins the game. But this is not Christmas and we are talking about DIY candles that you can easily make at home. So we will stick to that! Lest we trigger the ‘talk-about-your-granny-hate’.
