EARTH HOUR in our home.

Tonight from 8;30pm to 9;30pm is Earth Hour and this year im giving myself 'snaps' for actually remembering to turn the lights out. Yep, last year i forgot..OOPS.

So Shane, Sam and i have lit some candles and while im typing this, my boys are playing Ben 10 Monopoly by candle light. This is my quick escape from it, LOL,...Sam and i have been playing it for most of the day and let me tell you the kid has houses on everything and steals money from the bank when he thinks you arent looking (hence the ability to buy sooooo many houses)LOL.
Anyroad, i digress....
I took some piccies of some of our pretty flickering candles....our little part in Earth Hour.

My candlelabra on the Dining Table

Now im just fiddling with colours and angles and stuff....hey this is fun.

I loved the glow these little tea light candles made on my china.

My pretty wall sconces and a tealight against the photo of my friend Sharyn.

Man, i loooved how this lit up just those little spots....plus more tweakin with the colour *grin*


So while we giggled by candle light i hope we did a little something helpful for the planet. Afterall it's up to us to save it for our kids and grandkids right.

HAPPY WEEKEND

Love Shann xxxx

We plan on participating in earth hour tonight as well. We did it last year... and it was tough let me tell ya!! We love our hockey here in Canada and every Saturday night is Hockey Night in Canada on TV!! So again this year the lights will go off! But your right we all have to do our part.

What a wonderful idea Shannon. I've never heard of Earth Hour here in the United States, but I think it's a fabulous idea.

P.S. Love your gorgeous new bed quilt. I would never want to leave such a beautiful bed come morning time.

Stop by for a visit when you have time.

Hugs~

We candle lovers are a step ahead for earth hour or are we in our element? either way we are going to make the best of being off the grid and enjoying a quiet moment.

Your little man is getting so big from what we can see in the photos.

Like the blog banner, that is so shabby cool.

OMG Shann,
Your blog looks soooo nice. I am loving the new banner & backround! Where on earth do you find all of these lovely backround templates?
I love your Earth Hour Pictures, your pretties look just so sweet bathed in the soft glow of candlelight.
Hope you had a fab weekend.
