Lasting Scent Candles-last ever order?

Funny how I agonized over my single February wax pre-order during my no-buy, yet, didn't feel a moment's anguish at nabbing some Lasting Scent Candles just a week later in March. Of course, that's mostly due to LSC closing shop this month after many years of successful business and my cold fear that I'd never... Continue Reading →

January Superlatives

Best moments of the month: *Spending MLK day weekend with our great friends who live a few hours away.

October-Band of Bloggers

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far, far away, it was a dark and stormy night. So dark and stormy, in fact, the power had gone out, and you had naught but a handful of scented three-wick candles with which to light your way. As you crept down the darkened hallway of the cabin... Continue Reading →
