CANDLES IN THE WINDOWS..

The candles in the windows of our olde farmhouse have been shining brightly for over 30 years...that is when I first encountered them in the windows of homes in Lancaster County.  I HAD to have them too.  All 16 windows in our home have candlelight shining - and we are lucky enough to have 24" deep window sills for which to place them, and an electric outlet at each window (except in the bathrooms where Tony had to get a bit creative)!  They shine in the windows at the store too!

My dear friend Susan has posted on her blog a bit of history about candles in the windows back in colonial days....where and why this custom started....I like her version (being Irish and all that) !!    Visit her blog  at  http://thedutchrose.blogspot.com/

Before Christmas sales are going on at The Cinnamon Stick right now....(we do not do after Christmas sales)...we know you need these goodies now!!

Valentine decorations and workshops coming in January...we like to spread lots of LOVE !!
