The holidays seem to be the season of light... lights on the tree, lighting the menorah, candles in windows, and warm crackling fires!

There is something about candle light that just can't be duplicated by electricity! The light of a flame extends its brilliance, warming our hearts and stirring emotion. It's wonderful to have candles at any time of the year, but they seem especially appropriate now at the holidays.
Becky Hemby from the Outer Banks has created some of the most beautiful candles. Her candles are all made by hand and embedded with magnificent shells. The process she uses allows the candle to burn in the center leaving the decorative outer surface untouched, so that the glow of the flame illuminates the shells. Her candles make great gifts. Enjoy some for your home too.
