Wax Flowers...

 
 
I ordered an enormous bunch of delicate pink wax flowers from our local florist the other day. It was the first time that I have ever purchased them and they are enchanting!  When the stem is cut, they give off a wonderful lemony scent.  For $12, I was able to fill multiple vases around our home:  one on my bedside table, two bud vases in the children's icon corners, one bottle in the kitchen, one by the guest bathroom sink, and finally one very large vase on the mantle.  It will be a very cheery end to January and a lovely feast of The Meeting of the Lord on Tuesday!

Lovely! I have never heard of wax flowers, I will keep a look out for them!
I keep checking the mailbox today as our new box of candles is due and we are excited to get them before the Feast! We have missed the last two years to illness and are hopeful. Is that Elizabeth tucked behind the Nativity in your icon corner?

Yes, it is an icon of Saint Elizabeth the New Martyr!
