Beeswax Candles and Pink Cupcakes

 An old candelabra i found at one of the vintage shops in town.  One day if i ever get married..    again...   this will be all lit up at the wedding...  I put 12 beeswax candles in it, because when you burn beeswax it emits negative ions into the air, which sounds bad because of the word "negative".  Negative ions actually make you feel wonderful, and are good for you.  I need me some negative ions big time...  

when i look at this photo online, that crooked candle in front is driving me nuts, i just want to reach in the photo and straighten it...

you know how when you go to the beach you feel good inside and out?  well, that's because the ocean is creating negative ions all over the place...

 I decided to make some pink cupcakes, just because they're pretty... they are strawberry cupcakes... with strawberry and cream cheese frosting. 

 My daughter, who is 21 came by my house when i was at work, and took a huge bite out of one of them, and then put the  other half with a big bite out of it back on the platter... 
Who does that?!!! 

I am sure at some point in life i told her that you don't put half chewed up food back on a platter...

My kids totally freak me out, that's why i need negative ions, and pink cupcakes and a psychiatrist and valium and vodka...
well... not all at once, but at different times during the day..

Beeswax candle have a wonderful golden glow, and the room smells like honeycombs when you blow them out...

and I actually don't mind that much that Ellie took a bite out of a cupcake and put it back, i'm glad she was around to taste them...
