My daughter in Michigan sent me these Flameless Candles. They are excellent quality.

I really like them.

On these continued long dark and cold winter nights - they seem to make my reading room warmer.

Have placed one on my night stand. When having my meditation and prayer time - like the warm glow.

I always lite a candle when I have my evening meal.

This is something I can now use along with the real candles

We are no more than candles burning in the wind ~~Japanese proverb~~

Lovely. I have seen these and often wondered if they conveyed the same type of virtual warmth.

Tabor, these are Nate Berkus - featured on Ophra. I would not have bought something like this for myself - but a gift I am enjoying.

There is nothing as mood-enhancing and indulgent as real candles.

I shun the little flickering battery operated ones that are supposed to look like real candles.

I have always loved candles. I saw someone use them mixed with greens on a mantle. They are much safer that the real thing with flames.Enjoy! Balisha

Deborah, I agree. A gift I would not have bought. But I do feel safe with them on as I wander in this rustic home at the edge of the woods.
Balisha, thanks for visiting.

You have created such a peaceful scene. I imagine your home to be a peaceful place.

The flameless candles are lovely. I bought one this year and we've been using it on the dining table at LM's. I am planning to get others for my house and one to use especially during meditation and yoga.
There is so much peace in your world. Thank you for sharing it with us...With gratitude....M

Marcia, I like the candles. Real candles more - but these are safe to leave on throughout the cottage.
Peace - yes - it took a long time to begin... work on it continually.
I know you understand..

i don't "use" these either, but i added these to the mantel this holiday season, placing them in groups of 3 amidst the greenery. when flickering there, these candles are much safer than real ones, and the light looks soft and warm amidst all the greenery. since our mantel is fairly high and the fireplace forms a triangle with a 90 degree center angle behind a deep brick hearth, it would be hard to tell the candles are not real. PERFECT.

Sky, we have a lot in common:)
Thank you once again for visiting.
