Any Time of Year Scents?

With the countdown to Spring less than five days away, but our local weather utterly ignoring the calendar by refusing to release Winter's grip, I am in seasonal candle limbo. What to burn?

February: Wax and candle recap

Wow, is my warmer stained, oops. So be it, a symbol of my chaotic wax melting existence this past month.

Festive Candles

Barring the real possibility of a lost candle crate lurking in my basement, I'm surprised to see the smallish gathering above is the extent of my festive candle stash. But there 'tis. A good amount of evergreen, cedar and berries, with a scattering of winter rosebuds.  Fresh Balsam by Bath and Body Works (last year's freebie),... Continue Reading →

Fall Fun Series II: The Finale

It's time to put the Fall Fun Series to bed with a countdown of favorite products and moments of the season, and a sleepy sort of season it was. After the leaves settled I can say, I celebrated in every Autumnal moment save two (Seasonal movies/songs/reads and Fall craft or recipe) but I did combine those... Continue Reading →
