My Latest Creation

Here is my latest creation....I don't mean Alexa, she was God's wonderful creation 15 years ago!

I am referring to the necklace made by MOI!!!

I designed it for my 72 year old mom to wear to a party last night. As you might imagine by the style of the necklace she is no ordinary 72 year old! She has amazing style and doesn't look a day over 59.

Vintage Treasures Of The Week

I have fallen in love with all types of vintage purses! As soon as we find them and put them out for sale at the studio they sell almost immediately! Sweet and simple, no brand names, usually no labels, used but not broken, made with the finest materials of the past, beauty with age, what more could one ask for? Quite simple, the desire to have the characteristics of a vintage purse!

Alexa's Recording Session

I hope everyone had a fantastic Memorial Day! I don't have a whole lot to say about the candle studio today because of the long weekend! We have been in the recording studio with Alexa our 15 year old, who plays guitar and writes beautiful praise and worship music. Tony at is in the middle of producing two of her songs. He brought in some extremely talented musicians, George Vinson(guitar) and Jimmy(drums) from Nashville, Kenny Talley from the Goodfellas (keyboards)from Birmingham. They are all incredibly talented. Tony even cooked for us!!! Much thanks to Karie Mitchell , my favorite photographer who is always there for us, Love You Karie!!!

3 Layer Candles! Nude Beach (top), Kiwi Daquiri(middle),Blue Coconut(bottom). Dave did an amazing job blending these, so tropical, of course they smell delicious! The color combo was inspired by.........
this great full size comforter I found for Faith's bed this week at a yard sale for 8.00, that I bought to match............

these Maik prints that were in my bedroom when I was a little girl. I had to have them reframed on acid free matting.
For all of you who are not at the beach this week, these candles are a great alternative! I hope you have a wonderful and safe weekend!

Saturday Night Candle Making

We really enjoyed getting to know these ladies and one lucky man, Tony! They made some really beautiful creations!
Everyone filled their molds with endless possibilities of scent and color combinations, to create their own custom candles!

Two gorgeous b'day cakes, champagne, jazz music and the most wonderful company. What a wonderful way to spend a Saturday night!

Behind our studio is this great little alley where little flecks of light shine through the trees. It's my favorite place to go to just get away for a minute. There is always a stray cat or two to play with, discarded junk to look at, a slight breeze, which carries the scent of freshly made candles out the side window and down the street. Monday's aren't all bad.......

Mother's Day Gifts

I can't believe Mother's Day is on Sunday! My mom and mom in law always get candles of course! However, here are a few of my other favorite ideas you can purchase at Wildflower Wax:

  1. Papaya Arts Stationary, so much fun to write on. Their products are so cool and artsy I wasn't sure the postman would deliver, but he does! For $15.00 you get 12 cards with 6 different designs.

  2. Blue Girl Beading vintage lockets embellished with rhinestone crosses, peace signs, butterflies, etc. have been flying out the door! They look great with everything...

  3. Every mom needs a pair of Cowboy Boots! I just got my mom a pair of black Tony Lama Python's, really hot! She's 72 and loves them.

  4. Tokyo Milk perfume out of L.A. is perfect for the mom with a little edge. You will love their cute graphics and packaging, with names like dead sexy and gin and rosewater.

Candle Party At The Studio

Last night was a blast! We met 18 fantastic ladies who know how to throw one incredible b'day party! They used the studio for the evening, and made their own custom candles. They picked which scents and colors they wanted, put their design skills to work, and were able to see first hand how we make our candles. They also enjoyed trying on our fun selection of boots, jewelry, and clothing. Pictured is the strawberry cake with sparklers! Let us host your next event or girls night out! Give us a call for details.
