Brightening up my life with candles


I LOVE candles! I burn them constantly and have spent a small fortune on them over the years. So, why not make them? Well, that’s what I thought a while back. So I did the research, sourced a good company, spent a fortune on materials, and Voila! Well, not exactly. They are much harder to make than I thought.

I continue to practice, and I WILL master it!┬áIn the meantime, my house smells lovely – lime, basil and mandarin in the bathroom, Christmas spice in the living room, sweet pea in the porch, rhubarb and strawberry in the kitchen (appropriately), spiced orange in the hall. Mmmmmmm lovely!
