Square Pillar Candles

Made these the other day.  I really like square pillars and have added them to my website.  They are 16oz, 20oz, & 29oz pillars.  Been burning a tester in Nana's Old Fashioned Apple Butter.  Smells great, but when I went to supplier website couldn't find it.  Got to find out if they have any left or plan or restocking it this fall.  Hope I can get more cause I really love the scent!

Testing soy wax in some status jars I had that have been sitting around and never used.  I am bad about buying jars I like and then never using them.  Also have a large vase jar I may decide to test later.  Today have 50 votives I need to get wicked and put in clam shells for customer to use for a wedding rehearsal dinner.

I will leave you with a quote about friendship from a book my best friend gave me!

"Friendship bridges the gap between what things are and what they could be." Roger Holmes

Small Town USA

As my title says, Small Town USA has been running through my mind for the last month or so.  Only problem couldn't think how I wanted to use it.  Knew I wanted it for a banner but you usually see candles in a banner for a candle website.  Today it was on my mind again so I started playing with it.  After all, Glenwood GA is your typical Small Town USA.  I love it, wouldn't have it any other way either!  I have always lived here and hope I always will. 

I got my website changed and am really rather pleased with it.  Just hope it doesn't sound to "corny"!!   This is a picture of the banner -

To see the complete page just click here -

Sorta like the name Small Town Candle-Shoppe but it would be to much trouble to change all that.  If you like to see deer pictures then check out what I saw in my backyard today!

It is hard to see the deer but the first picture is of Mama Deer who I saw earlier on in the afternoon.  Second picture is of her twin babies.  They were really at a bad angle for picture taking and I couldn't open door to step out on deck, it would have scared them away.  I really love watching the deer, they are so pretty and graceful!  I know my neighbor doesn't feel that way though, he has a garden and they sure do love his veggies!!

Getting ready to test a new jar in both paraffin and soy.  It is the status jar and probably holds about 7.5 oz wax.  I haven't measured it yet! 

That is all for today.  Please leave your comments if you would like!

Just playing around

I was just playing around yesterday and decided to try my hand at making bakery candles.  I made some Blueberry Cheesecake Mini Bundt Cakes drizzled with Vanilla Buttercream and topped with Blueberry Cheesecake sprinkles and Strawberry cupcakes topped with Vanilla Buttercream frosting and then drizzled with Strawberry. 

Think I will be playing around today also with something in Blueberry Cobbler or Cheesecake.  It is just smelling to good not to make something else!!

Below are pictures of my first try at making bakery candles!!  I just cannot make pictures line up like I want them to.

Hello Again!

Gee, didn't realize it had been so long since I had last posted to my blog.  I am really bad about this and keep saying I am going to do better but it just doesn't seem to happen.  Well, here's to trying to do better again!

Not much has been happening around The Candle-Shoppe lately.  Think this hot weather along with the economy has slowed everything down.  I know it has slowed me down! 

Since my last post I have, as usual, added some new scents.  I will see if I can remember them!  Fresh Floral Honeydew, Sea Island Grapefruit, Twilight, Tuscan Gardens, Persian Pear, Watermelon, Blackberry Jam Butter Cookies, Cinnamon Glazed Baklava are the ones I remember off the top of my head and at this late hour.  Should be in bed!  See all my scents by clicking here -

I have also added Bath & Body Products - Lotion, Bath Gel, Body Spray, & Bath Oil.  My ladies and men's perfume and cologne has been a big hit.  I am trying to get more of the modern scents in perfumes but I really haven't bought or looked at any in a long time.  I do have Ed Hardy for Men & Women, Amazing Grace, Juicy Couture, A&E for Men & Women.  Check out my B&B and perfumes at this page -

Also new are soy candles.  These are available in just a couple of my jars and scents.  The scents available are listed at this page -

My website has a different look.  I tend to change it often, trying to find just the look I want.  You can see my website at this link -  I also have a new email address -

This that is about enough links for the night!! Now to see if I can find you a picture to keep the page from being so link crazy!!

Good-Night All, I promise to try and do better in the future!
