Thanks, cyn, about the L&L info. I sure hope there are more tarts on her site soon.
The weather has been so awful all May that I used the little window of no-rain today to pull weeds and plant things that had been patiently waiting by the patio. I am pretty sure I crammed 2 weekends of work into one day - I am feeling it already.
Melts the past day:
Bad Kitti - Spa
YC - Ocean Blossom
Can-Do - Red Currant and Thyme
Sweet Surrender - Fire

Would you believe I am not melting anything today. I have a cold and stuffy sinuses and cannot smell a thing! UGH!!! I made a strawberry rhubarb pie and couldn't even smell that! I have to thank DH for "sharing" his cold with us....NOT!!! Oh well, maybe tomorrow I will melt.....
Have a good night!

Last melt of the day is another oldie, TS Spice Haven. Soooo good!

I'm melting the last of Melon Mania by CCCC as I get ready to head off to work tonight. It has been a gorgeous day here in the Mile High City!
Happy Memorial Day everyone!

Okay, so I started a melter with Carol's Flip Flops, a scent which I normally love...but not tonight! It smells weird to me....gonna blow out the tealight and light my YC Tutti Frutti jar instead.
Anjoymom, hope you feel better! I had the same crud for 2 whole weeks. At the picnic today, my sister and one of my cousins had the same sort of thing....blech.
Hope everyone had a great Sunday!

Cabin Candlery - Strawberry candle (I smell nothing, but huge candle I have to use up)
Countrytrail - Craig's Cookie (good, lighter scent)
AZW - Honey Almond Drizzle Pastry (lots of honey)
Can Do - Strawberry Shortcake (didn't like), Pistachio Dream Cake (yum! A reorder)

I'm really pleased with the Busy Bee scents. They are over a year old and still have a great throw.
I hope everyone is having a good, safe weekend.

Had a great weekend. DD had a soccer tournament in New Jersey and her team came in first place! Bit of traffic coming home but not too bad. Today I have lots of shopping to do and laundry as well!
Before I left I melted Mimi's House from Can Do. I've heard so much about this scent and worried that it might be too foody or spicy for me, but I absolutely loved that Apple Cidery scent. Delicious, definite reorder.
Last night I finally melted an AMS scent that I got from her sale. I wanted to let them cure at least a week. Cabernet is amazing, a grape scent, definitely a wine grape scent, not fruit grape. Put it on in my combo melter at 7:30 last night and 12 hours later, the delicious aroma is still wafting through my house!!!
Have a great day everyone!
And of course to all our Veterans....THANK YOU!!!!!

Happy Memorial Day! It's been a busy holiday weekend. Lots of entertaining here.
Not melting too much but recent melts were CCCC Peach Jam Cheesecake and CCCC Keylime Ice Cream. Nice but not too strong a throw. I think I need to melt multiples because it is a very open floor plan with high ceilings. Nice scents though.

Keylime Ice Cream from FM...can't wait for this to get going...smells so great cold.
Berry Refreshing Lemonade from MD
