Antique Candle Co.

Hello friends,

A while back I had posted about how I decided to switch from paraffin candles to soy and today I would like to share with you why I chose Antique Candle Co.

Antique Candle Co. (previously Antique Candle Works) offers high quality, artisan candles made from natural, domestically grown soy beans without any dyes.  Soy wax is non-toxic, eco-friendly, renewable and water soluble.  Did you know soy candles last longer?  They burn at a slower rate and can last almost 30-50% longer than a paraffin candle - Woo hoo!

I have discovered soy candles burn much cleaner without carcinogens and pollutants.  Antique Candle Co. uses cotton wicks for a clean and even burn.

Another beautiful thing about soy candles is their natural off-white color.  The raw color of this wax blends with any decor.  Antique Candle Co. offers their candles in a wonderful mason jar with a vintage style metal lid.  Can you say farmhouse?

Now it's all about the fragrance, right?  Well, Antique Candle Co. has spent countless hours blending each product with their signature fragrance combinations.  Every step of the process is carefully handcrafted in house by their team of candle chemists.  Each unique scent is incredible.  A few of my favorites are Country Pear by Cotton Stem, Wildflowers and Sweet Lemon.

Brittany, owner of Antique Candle Co., is passionate about what she does.  You will be amazed when your candles arrive and how beautiful their packaging is.  Each mason jar will come in its own box, including the wax melts.  You will also receive an adorable muslin bag hand stamped with the Antique Candle Co. logo.

Happy Mail!
Look at all the wonderful smelling scents!

I am totally obsessed with Country Pear by Cotton Stem.  This luscious fragrance is unbelievable!  It truly is a timeless scent perfect for every season.  I loved it so much I bought several jars for my friends.

As part of my gift giving, I created the cute candle tags for each jar.

These candles will have you swooning my friends ...

Thank you for stopping to visit me!

Paris in the Spring Time


Today I am taking you for a journey to Paris.  Doesn't that sound exciting?  There's nothing like the romance of Paris in the springtime.

I've started with a base card in natural white linen then ran a piece of parchment shell paper through the Big Shot using a Spellbinders Timeless Rectangle #4 die.  The image was stamped in StazOn Black on Very Vanilla and mounted to a piece of Early Espresso.  

The flowers were colored using Blushing Bride & Pretty in Pink inks with a blender pen.  The leaves were done with Prismacolor pencils.  A clear Spica pen adds sparkle to each blossom with a pink pearl in the center of each one.

Using the Beautiful Wings embosslits die, I cut two little butterflies and covered them with Angel Wings Shimmerz Paint.  The card was finished with a pretty cherry blossom bow and pink ice brad.

So what do you think?  Does it make you want to go to Paris?
