A “Sweet” Find–and Your Opinion, Please

I had a few extra minutes to spare before heading to work the other evening, so I ran into one of my favorite spots to browse – Home Goods!  Gotta love it:)  I really do enjoy just the browsing…but finding a little treasure to take home – even sweeter!

Some new mugs for Hubbie and me….

cups one


black cup

They should add a little smile to our morning fall flavored lattes!  They even have little owls hidden inside:)

cups two


But even “sweeter”…….I found these!!


Oh, indeed.  Belgian Chocolate. Drenched. Oreo Cookies.  What more could there be to love!!??  Except, maybe, the individual polka-dot wrapping.  Sweet.

And, I also found some candle holders to get my dining room table a bit more ready for Thanksgiving.  I could not decide on the shorter ones or the taller ones.  So, naturally, I bought both.  The plan was to decide which ones I liked better and then return one set.  Only…I can’t seem to make a decision.

So, what do you think???

table two

Taller ones?? or shorter??  And, yes, there will be some other things on the table but just looking at the candles for now.  Always love your thoughts -


  1. I am sooo not a decorator, but I would go with the taller ones. They are really cute by the way.

  2. I like the taller ones :)

    On a side note.....I'm hooked on Pinterest. I took the plunge a few days ago. It has some pretty cool stuff.

  3. Good morning! Oh how I love a good Home Goods browse...wish we could go together.. : ) Love the mugs! As for your question, I would go with the taller ones..I actually have a similar type candle holder in various heights, and I group them together and go with all 3...Looking forward to seeing the final table...Have a good day! HUGS

  4. Home Goods is soooo good! I like the taller candle holder. You can build a decoration around it, but it will still stand out.

  5. Love the taller ones!
    Hope all well with you.
    Enjoy your day.

  6. Well, I read all of these replies, and I am afraid to say, I liked the shorter candles better, because I thought they worked better with the scale of the table. Just me though. I like them both! Love the owl mugs. Love Home Goods!! And those oreos...wowzers....I want one!!!

  7. I like the taller ones. I also love the wheat. But your mugs really "take the cake".

  8. Those were some great finds!! I like the taller ones too! The table looks beautiful and I love the mugs, they are one of my weaknesses, you can never have too many!

  9. I like both. I would put short, tall, wheat, tall, short and use two different colored candles.

  10. Taller ones :) I can see it is going to be a lovely centerpiece and perfect for this time of year. Warm and inviting too.

    I like to pop into Home Goods every so often. I almost always find something special at a very good price.

    Fun stopping by to visit with you!
    Kindly, Lorraine

  11. I love the candles! And I like the taller one. I'm sure your table is going to look really pretty! I hope you post pictures. Enjoy your day!

  12. I think you should use all four...the diff heights add interest!

  13. From the picture, I like the shorter ones. But I think the whole arrangement is very pretty. :)
