Bye Lupe! We'll miss you....

Dave's painting of Lupe that has been in our store since we first opened, has gone to live at Kelly's Bar & Grill in the Lakeview district! We have a huge blank space on our wall which will have to be filled soon. Kelly's is a fun place, so I'm sure he will be happy in his new home! If your in the area go by and visit him. Kelly's

New Candle's, Peppermint Cocoa Swirl...My favorite!

My two favorite combinations, chocolate and peppermint collide. I have this one in my room and adore it. Peppermint on top, Hot Chocolate on bottom. When you get to the middle, you get both scents at once! Have I mentioned that we put the maximum ammount of scent in our candles, so you can smell them when they are not even lit!

These have been selling so fast... Gingerbread, Spicy Orange and Tuscan Winter combination, they smell fantastic and the color combination is gorgeous! Tuscan Winter is one of our signature blends of , italian biscotti, pine nut and cranberry!
Pumpkin Brulee, perfect for your Holiday table! We will be open the day after Thanksgiving, for shopping and candle making. Bring the family and come create one of a kind unique gifts!

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!!!

Open House And Candle Making

This is our 9th year to have a candle open house. For six years Dave and I started selling our candles once a year at Christmas time to a few of our friends and family in our home. Everyone loved them and the word got out and they brought friends with them and each year it grew. From there we went to over 20 art shows a year, then on to wholesale, making sometimes 100 candles a day in our basement. We ship our candles out all over the U.S., but I am proud to say they are made right here in HELENA ALABAMA! We started doing first Friday night of the month candlemaking. Last Friday we had twenty five people come in from all over to make candles into gorgeous artwork! All different colors and scents. Here are some examples....

We are taking reservations for Friday night November 20th. We have time slots open at 6:00,7:00, and 8:00, $20.00 a person for a 4x41/2, 100 hours of burn time. Great to customize as gifts. Acoustic band, bring your wine and your friends!
