Mr. Fracturedfairytale always asks what is it about women and candles! In fact I've heard other guys comment about women and candles and marvel at how we like them so much.
Well... we just do!
Do you have a favorite candle,... one you like to have around when you want to make your house smell sweet?
My favorite all time candle is one they used to sell at Bath and Body Works. They are Henri Bendel candles... and if you light one, within 10 minutes your whole house will smell heavenly
They are insanely fragrant.
So since they were my all time favorite candle, you can imagine what happened.....
they were discontinued!!!
Doesn't it drive you insane when you find an amazing product and it gets discontinued!!!???
Especially lipstick, oh my god, the favorite lipstick being discontinued is the worst...
I have another favorite candle right now made by the cutest woman you ever saw who lives right near me...
her name is Erin and her adorable home was featured in the Romantic Prairie Cookbook
She also has a blog
and an Etsy shop where she sells her wonderful candles
my favorite right now is Mulled Cider
I also know her candles are safe and won't give you brain damage and toxic poisoning from burning them
alot of candles you buy are made out of
Anyway, I went to the places where i usually buy Erin's candles and they were sold out...
So i went online looking for Henri Bendel candles and found them!
I bought one
and it was here in 2 days!
they even sent it with a cute little black and white striped bag...
cute little box too
i draped my pink leather gloves over the bag... they're pretty beat up, but i love em...
(anyone know an easy way to clean pink leather gloves?)
So if anyone ever calls and says they're going to be dropping by in 10 or 15 minutes...
and your house smells like dirty tennis shoes, and burnt sausage and something evil you can't quite define but you're pretty sure it involves your dogs...
you can light your Henri Bendel or one of Erin's yummy candles,
and you will trick your friends into thinking you have the most wonderful smelling home ever!
to finish this post off, i wanted to share a photo of a little brown basket with some dried hydrangeas from my yard...
just look at those pretty fall colors
