Just had a bright idea to help to spread a little light around the world… create a few candle images to spread light on various aspects.

If you’d like to share the light on your own blog/site, please feel free to save any or all of the candle images from this post to use in a post, or as a sidebar widget, or however you feel the light should be shared. Quite a few of us are affected by the ‘darkness’ in various ways at present, and quite a few of us are doing our own thing to spread the light. Let’s do it together!

    1. Thanks, Prenin, but I don’t use Facebook (or any of those platforms for that matter!)
      If you wanted to share one/a couple/all of them however, be my guest! And there’s no need to link back either… I just thought it would be nice to give something out without expecting anything in return. 🙂

    1. Thank you, Sue… and be my guest.
      I do wonder where these ideas spring from at times, but even with low inspiration levels they are still coming through, which is good! 😀

        1. Thanks, Sue. Your Pingback isn’t appearing, although others are… but this time, I think it’s me and not you! 😀
          I noticed this problem last year when I used to do those monthly theme posts – some pingbacks appeared yet others didn’t. It’s most odd, but just another quirk!
          Thanks for selecting a candle, Sue, and referring others to select theirs as well… it’s been quite busy here today! 🙂

    New blog look … very nice.
    New Light up the World … spectacular.
    I’m sure there’ll be others as I browse about here today.
    Hope you’re having a restful and enjoyable Saturday.
    This is a super idea. I’ve grabbed a few for my blogs.

  27. Clicked over from Debby’s candle (D.G.Kaye) and I must have one as well! I’m rushing to go out of town for a few days, but will come back on my return at the end of the week to grab a candle for my sidebar. Thank you for your wonderful idea and your generous heart.

  28. FINALLY got my candle up at ADDandSoMuchMore.com – both in the sidebar and at the very bottom of every page (same candle, different sizes – the one with the world). Both images link here. Thank you so much for a super idea.
