Hurricane Candles

It has been a very busy month this month. The most popular candles that I have been asked for have been my personalised hurricane candles. Really what hurricane candles are is a wax shell with a tealight popped into the bottom of the shell. This means that the actual hurricane never burns but is lit up with a lovely glow from the inside.

These candles are personalised with any image wanted. The picutre is actually set within the wax shell itself (not just stuck onto the front) and are excellent keepsakes.

The hurricane above was made for one of the lady's on the forum to give to both grans and I think the photo I was given is absolutely gorgeous.

And their Back!!!

Back to School at last - 2 whole weeks has seemed like 2 years trying to keep the kids amused. Did eventually get to see the Spiderwick Chronicles and it was surprisingly good - my 15 year old son even liked it - and for all of us who have teenagers you know how difficult it is to get a teenager to like something.

Anyhoo - I can actually use the computer again instead of having to fight my way in!!!

I have another load of scents due to arrive soon so as soon as I have tested them will put them onto the site - I have some absolutely fantastic fragrances that I will add to my ever increasing list of scents - I think I am sitting at around 100 scents.

Another week commences - back on with work!!!

Easter Holidays

Well that's it the schools in Scotland have finally finished for the 2 week Easter holiday's. Now comes the age old dilema - what do you do to keep the kids amused.

They have only been on holiday for 1 day and already all I am hearing is "mum I'm bored, there's nothing to do!!" I think I will take them to the cinema to see the Spiderwick Chronicles - so there's one day down - 13 left to go!!

Clip Clop Horseshoes

Janice from Clip Clop Horseshoes makes absolutely gorgeous wedding gifts out of real life horse shoes they are absolutely gorgeous (I should know I bought one).

These are real horse shoes and come in a range of sizes from teeny tiny to great big Clydesdale Horse Shoes. Janice treats them, then paints them and decorates them with ribbon/tartan and decoration of your choice.

I can really recommend them - great gifts and not just for weddings either.
