Lately I'm totally into vintage looking mercury candle holders. I just bought these from Pottery Barn
and I LOVE THEM. Here's what they look like in my dining room.
...my photography isn't as good. And yes the drapes are also from PB. Please disregard my candles... they are a little narrower width than I needed. Haven't had a chance to go out and get bigger ones. The PB website said they were for 3" diameter candles but clearly that is too small.
I'm now thinking about getting these to add to a side table or maybe on the mantle in the living room?? Super cute. I love the mismatched styles. If I do use on the mantle I'll have to get those battery operated flameless candles since the television is above the mantle. I'm not a super-fan of them but they do come in handy when I do want it to look like I have lit candles on the mantle.

These chocolate cookies are hard to resist. I've made them time and again and they are constantly gobbled up by my husband and daughter. The recipe only makes about 15 cookies so I usually double it without issue.
They are super quick to make but they do have to sit in the fridge for 30 minutes before rolling and baking them. They are a must try! The recipe is from this fabulous book I picked up one day in Border's Book Store, which is now closed. It's called The Cookie and Biscuit Bible and has many fabulous recipes from cookies to scones and more. It's a must buy. You can find the book on Amazon for super cheap.
