Yankee Candle Treasure


Little bread-and-butterflies kiss the tulips
And the sun is like a toy balloon
There are get-up-in-the-morning glories
In the golden afternoon

There are dizzy daffodils on the hillside
Strings of violets are all in tune
Tiger lilies love the dandelions
In the golden afternoon

There are dog and cat-erpillars and a copper centipede
Where the lazy daisies love the very peaceful life
They lead...
You can learn a lot of things from the flowers
For especially in the month of June
There's a wealth of happiness and romance
All in the golden afternoon

While I was in town on Tuesday, I stopped at the thrift shop. I unearthed a lovely treasure ~ a Yankee Candle Shade for a medium/large candle. I love the soft colors and all the different flowers on each side of the shade. ♥ that it was only $3.00.

Have you discovered any buried treasures lately?

  1. That was quite a find, my friend! I found a lovely basket...round and with a lid that will make a perfect sewing basket...for 99 cents a couple of weeks ago. :)

  3. Such a pretty Yankee Candle Shade; what a fortuitous find. I too have been out and about, discovering treasures in dark, hidey holes of thrift shops. It is the best fun, isn't it.

    1. Kim, it absolutely is! I don't hit the shops very often. I'm looking forward to the weather getting warmer and visiting the garage sale and estate sales too.
