Love the thread title Gail!
Melting Spiced Cranberry from CFTKR...I've loved this scent for years.
We had about 100 trick or treaters...pretty normal these days...but poor Daisy is pooped from barking all day! Halloween is so stressful for that little one....and she gives me a headache!

Cozy Cabin from McCalls
Hi Maggie, thanks for the nice welcome! Poor Daisy! We actually ran out of candy after about 40 minutes of trick or treaters!!! DH stayed here and handed out candy while I took our youngest DS and his buddy trick or treating. He called me on my cell phone and said he ran out of candy!!! I'll have to remember to buy more for next year....think we went through at least 200 pieces last night...I could've have easily went through another 200-300!!!
This is another Halloween House melting Can Do's Haunted House!
I hope everyone had a great evening and you are all through sorting candy with the kids!
I got a mix of large jars and large tumblers...Crisp Apple Strudel, Bright Copper Kettles, Kitchen Spice, Heritage Pine, Oatmeal Cookie, Be Jolly, Pumpkin Buttercream and Mountain Lodge. Trying to figure out where I am going to put all of them... I had fun sorting through the boys' "hauls"...scored a couple of Almond Joys and Butterfingers for myself....yum.
Off to do some laundry...don't be jealous

Starting Nov. off with Hazelnut Latte from Scentsy. DD had fun trick-or-treating with her friends last night. I snagged a few Baby Ruth from her bag. DS stayed home with me and DH. I had fun passing out candy. I love seeing all the costumes and watching the kids' reactions when they see what kind of candy I drop into their bags. Hard to believe it's already Nov. We close on our house in just 18 days. The holidays will probably just kind of pass us by this year, but none of us mind. The kids are old enough to understand and they're excited about the new house, too. Once we take ownership of the house, there will be at least a few weeks worth of painting,cleaning, etc. to do. Hope to be all moved in by Christmas, though.

Aria, that's a ton of tricker treaters! Must have been a busy night in your neck of the woods!
Mpfand, how exciting about the new house!
I'm finishing up Tara's Vanilla Velvet this morning but will be switching it out soon.

I'm now melting "Lemon Sugar" from Kim's Tart Candles in the hall and bathroom and "Buttermilk Pancakes" from Haley's in the living room and kitchen. I also have a "Harvest Peach" candle from Kohl's burning. It smells nice, but it doesn't have much of a throw.

For this evening it is BH&G Frosty Peppermint Snow in my Yankee Thanksgiving tealight warmer. I have been quite impressed with these little BH&G cubes. Just one scents the entire house. Two dollars for 6 melts is a great bargain if you ask me. Have great night everyone.

Maggie, I have not smelled Bright Copper Kettles yet, but the scent description sounds like a scent I would like...
"Whistling warming spices aglow, including cinnamon bark, clove buds, allspice and nutmeg"
It is a limited edition scent... part of the My Favorite Things collection...blue satin sashes, crisp apple strudel, warm woolen mittens....etc.
trep, sorry to hear you have a headache

Jason, I love your November enthusiasm!
I'm melting Tara's Grandma's Swiggin' Eggnog. The image of Grandma swiggin' some holiday nog is delightful enough, but this tart is TDF!

Mpfand - Exciting news about your house! All new rooms to decorate and make smell good!
Aria - Bright Copper Kettles sounds good - luv the jar label! Let us know if it's similar to Kitchen Spice?
I'm melting HOS Hearthside Moments. It does remind me of a fireplace hearth. Here's the description - This warm and cozy aroma composed of woods, spices, and fresh Eucalyptus embodies all the comforts of home with a hint of apple cider.
