Ahh, the glory of fall! The change of season, the bright colors, rows of pumpkins ready to be picked in the fields, cozy sweaters and comfort foods. Most glorious of all for me, might just be my fall wax stash, though! The next post in the Fall Fun blogging series is: show off that fall melting stash. I know I love to see a good wax stash, who doesn’t?
First up has gotta be my Yankee Candle tarts and Scenterpiece easy melt cups. I know that this may look like a ridiculous amount of Yankee tarts, and you are right, it is. But, remember that I was an employee for a time and I got most of my tarts for $.49 because I stacked sales and coupons. Still, slightly embarrassing considering this doesn’t include my fall candles.
I hope to get through at least some of these scents this season, but I have so much that I rarely melt repeats. My planned melts are: Apple Cider*, Amber Moon*, Autumn Bouquet, Autumn in the Park*, Autumn Leaves*, Brandy Pear Tart*, Candied Pecans, Caramel Pecan Pie*, Crisp Fall Night, Crisp Morning air, Granny Smith*, Honey Clementine, Hot Buttered Rum*, Kitchen Spice, Macintosh, Pumpkin Pie*, Pumpkin Wreath*, Season’s Blessings, Silver Birch*, Sweet Apple, Vanilla Bourbon, Vanilla Chai* (* means I’ve melted before and would recommend them)
Next up and the melts that I’m way more excited about this year, with my newly discovered vendor wax addiction (thanks Instagram and Etsy, Lol!) are my small business vendor wax planned melts. In alphabetical order by vendor:

Fall Store Merchandise Finds:
Normally, I would have made a few shopping trips for Halloween items by now. I’ve gotten out of my normal habits this year, so the only store I’ve been to and took some photos in, is Pier One Imports. I know that they can be pricey, but they provide great inspiration, lovely fall vignettes and offer an occasional well-timed sale. I may have picked up a new fall decor item on sale, that I’m excited to show off later:)
This cute ‘dogs in costumes’ tableware may become a fall gift for my mom. She would totally eat that up. We often say that “there’s nothing cuter/funnier than dogs in hats” in my family. I also like the neutral toned fall table setting and cozy chairs with pumpkin pillows.
I know it’s early but I have to share my Halloween melts, too. All the same vendors as above with the addition of Gypsy Wax’s Witchy Woman and House of Usher Wax Museum’s Halloween in July sampler box.
I’m also expecting deliveries of Halloween themed melts from two more vendors, Moonbeams Wax and Save Your Scentses. Yeah! Can’t get enough of this cool stuff.*
*This is the reason I’m on a wax-buying ban:( I think I have plenty to cover the season, however, how about you? What’s the fall melt or candle you’re excited about this year?
