Sweet Dreams

One of my favorite features of my kids new room is the nightlight I fashioned for them from a beautiful nativity votive holder my brother and sister-in-law gave us for Christmas two years ago. I kept it displayed in our living room after this past Christmas because I just couldn't bear to pack it away with all the other decorations, and while I was putting things back into the kids' room last night I just couldn't seem to find a suitable place for the rather large, plastic, Dora the Explorer nightlight my girls had been using in their former bedroom. But by simply removing the light bulb and switch component from the back of the Dora light, and inserting it through the opening in the back of the candle holder, I created a beautiful new nightlight that looks perfect on top of their chest of drawers. What a pleasant glow to fall asleep by!
