There is more than one way to create ambience, any sense will do: sight, sound, or smell. And if you can use them all…even better!

Candles are the easiest and most common way to create ambience. In our modern society, candlelight is quaint and harkens back to a simpler time. That’s why many restaurants use candles on their tables. I use candles in every room at home to create a feeling of comfort and coziness, and of course to indulge in my chosen “smells.” I bought this candle at a thrift store for $1.99 and chose a  “Christmas Thyme” Yankee Candle votive to put in it.

Another thrift store bargain is this cd of French singers. I purchased it for $.50. I love old time Paris so this creates ambience for me too.

In my living room I continue the Paris theme with storage boxes and a picture of my grandfather in front of the Arc de Triomphe; he was stationed in Paris in WWI.

I find curves very pleasing to the eye.  For this week’s photo challenge, I thought this was a perfect example. I love how the wavy railings echo the curvy markings in the pretty door.

Cee’s photo topic this week is Circles and Curves.

I was surprised not to find more of these in my home. I guess I’m more of a sharp line kind of person. Here’s a couple of indoor examples and one outdoor example.
