I use a small ceramic ramekin to hold a couple of candles.  It's worked well so far.  A small dish would work too.

I use tealights in glass cups. So I don't have to either blow them out or supervise them at all times.

That's going to be my next thing once my candles run out...tea lights.

St. Brigid of Kildare, the Mary of the Gael

I got this (the icon on the right) in the mail last week. My friend bought it for me at the Holy Virgin Cathedral (ROCOR) in San Francisco.



It was held to three relics of the family.

The mister took this the other night; he said he liked the lighting. I'm inclined to agree.

Well, I mean, there is an icon, and it is in a corner.  Cool

I love it. Beautiful in its sparseness and simplicity.  The blue candle in glass holder complements and sets off the icon well. Smiley
