The Gift of JOY

Sitting at my computer earlier today, penning a recent blog post on Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser Pineapple and Mangosteen, I thought about "the gift of JOY." I am testing out the Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser and thought it rather "went well" with the JOY candle holder. And, it rather matched the granite counter top ... so that's where it got located!

The Gift of Joy! Isn't it interesting how something like a JOY candle holder can have such a special meaning? This special 3-piece ceramic candle holder with angels spells out JOY. This was a Christmas gift of many Decembers ago. This JOY candle holder has followed me through my marriage and subsequent divorce. This JOY has been relocated several times in the past couple of years. This JOY now finds a prominent spot on my kitchen counter top where I can see it every day.

I sure do love this JOY candle holder. I love the gold stars that accent each of the letters of J, O and Y! And, for sure it gives me great pleasure that there is an angel delicately placed on each of the letters! This is "the gift of JOY" which means so much to me each and every day. Hey, I'm glad that some JOY works its way into my life each day.

There is another JOY candle holder that I have packed away until Christmas. I actually have two of the Marjolein Bastin Christmas Santa JOY Candle Holders! On my fireplace mantel each Christmas Holiday Season, I place the two JOY candle holders on either side of a Royal Haeger black panther ceramic sculpture. The artwork is Ellen by Linda LeKinff.

Do you have any decorative collectibles that bring you JOY like mine? I've looked around eBay and can sometimes find the Marjolein Bastin JOY candle holder. On Amazon, I spied some other JOY candle holders you might like.
