  1. Hi and this is a great group of waxheads, you'll love it here! Where in FL? Pensacola here - wavin' atcha from the panhandle!
  2. Hi Candlefind Friends, Today it's super-clean smelling in here - Line Dried Linen by BH&G Gain by TCC Tide by BRH Recently I melted a bag of Pamaretto by Shayz which lasted for 3 days, I swear! The downside is, that it stained all of my warmer bowls a really dark pink. I was able to get a couple clean with rubbing alcohol, but one is stubbornly refusing to give up the dye! Hope everyone's week is off to a good start!
  3. It's Raining, It's Pouring (I wish I was snoring) lol! Whelp - DH patched the roof *again* when he came home from Mexico and last night it started storming REALLY bad (all across the south are tornadoes and all kinds of nasty weather - stay safe southern friends) and I have everything covered but so far so good! (no jinx!) Yesterday I started melting Black Tea with Orange & Almond by Mimi's Melters and it was UBER strong. At first it smelled a little "bakey" to me but I tried to tough it out because I know sometimes the notes change after burning awhile ... I have come to the conclusion that I do NOT like black tea (I guess that was the note). . . . it didn't get any better, just more nauseating! So I changed it out to Hippy Butter by Happy Hippy , which is Orange & Lemongrass, but man that yucky smell wanted to linger! Plus, I have not had much strong throw from Happy Hippy, I really could only smell it when I got right up close. So I lit a Morenci Candle - always guaranteed to fragrance the entire area - yup! Tuscan Lemongrass was a winner! Also, I did have Corriander & White Lime by my pal Val in the bedroom and bathroom and it was very nice. :D Today it is stormy, dark and generally yucky out, and it's so COLD in the house, I actually turned the heat on to knock the chill out! Melting Nag Champa by Aunt Smellman Exotic Sandalwood Musk by BH&G and about to add a candle, Sandalwood by YC to make things even cozier. Very earthy in here on this rainy day - LOVE it! Have a great day, everyone! [eta] Just changed out my room to Patchouli Rain (perfectly fitting for today) from a CF friend and Vanilla Woods by Scentsationals in the kids bathrooms
  4. Happy Almost Friday! I've been busier than a one-armed paper hanger around here. . . . why does it seem like as school starts winding down, everything starts winding up?! DD#3 left this morning (butt-crack of dawn early) for her senior class trip to Disney and Universal. I hope she's having a blast! (probably still on the bus) DD#1 birthday is today, I can't believe she's 24!! DH is coming home tomorrow night after 4 weeks out, and leaving again at the crack of dawn on Monday. ugh 2 days home every month is not much time and his list is LONG! The car needs repair, garden needs *man chores*, the roof is leaking, etc etc - poor guy would probably rather stay in Mexico! Luckily it's stopped raining, and even luckier that I saved an old vinyl tablecloth to cover everything with. I've even custom made some perfect sized covers (it's been leaking a long time! lol) I've been slack on reporting . . but here are some recent melts: Casa Blanca II by Dream Soy (nice, but these are a from 2011 and not holding their longevity too well) April Clean by Country Chunkie Apple Blossom by Buggy Town Iris & Fern by a CF friend Tomato Leaf by CCCC Today it's Pink Passion by YOCC Country Sunflower by BH&G Sunrise Splash by a CF friend Have a wonderful weekend, CF Friends!
  5. It's a GORGEOUS spring day here after 2 days of rain (and leaking roof - ugh) Melting: Beachin' by CCCC Combo called By the Pool (Splash + Coconut) by BH&G Burning: Sand Dunes by Scent Beads Beach Escape by YC Have a great day!
  6. TGIF Candlefind Friends! I have been seriously slacking with posting around here. :huh: Some recent melts: Coconut Sun by Scentsationals Coconut Water by ScentSationals Beach Bum by my pal Val Bahama Pink Sugar Coconut by TCC (what a great combo!) Calypso Island by CBV (nice, but didn't ever fully melt) Did the blendy tarts from BHG: Splash & Coconut (loved it!) Seaside Memories by Can-Do South Pacific Waters by my pal Val recent and current burns: Beach Cabana by BBW Ocean Star by YC Sex on the Beach by Morenci (finished it up) Pomegranate by Morenci (finished it up) Ocean Breeze by Chesapeake Bay Candles Ambrosia by Morenci Happy Birthday to all the recent celebrants!
  7. Good Morning CandleFinders! This morning I am burning Bird of Paradise by Morenci, this will probably be it's last lighting, it's just about gone. :( In the warmers, I tried one of those Mainstays combos - Peaceful Waters, Blue Skies and Hidden Treasures. It was pretty okay, nothing I would run out to stock up on In my room I have Orange Freesia by ScentSationals, that was very nice. Had a bit of a waxtastrophe yesterday afternoon . . . I had DS at the eye doctor and when I got home my DD told me that one of the dogs had jumped up and upended the little wall shelf I have my warmer on . The bowl hit the deck, (didn't break, thankfully) and she managed to rescue the warmer with a little bit of burning on her hands - ouch. Needless to say, wax all over the walls, floor, etc. Still working on that one and looking for a sturdier place to put the warmer. Enjoy your Saturday!!

  9. It's almost Friday! (not that it really makes much difference around here - ". . . there ain't no rest for the wicked. . . . " ;) Happy anniversary, mpfand! That's wonderful! Aria, what do you think of the Kimrie Ann's loaves? I grabbed a couple from Facebook and they've just been chillin' since I figured they wouldn't hurt to cure. Yesterday I melted Jasmine & Grapefruit by OPT It was pretty strong, but I got a couple of rumblings from the peanut gallery, it was a bit of an odd combo :wacko: Today it's Breezy Meadows by Dream Tarts Tomato & Basil by Partylite and also Be Lively by Partylite, both from a generous CF friend DS has his favorite Squeaky Clean by Crabby Candles in his room I added a couple of candles this evening: Summer Wish by YC (not a great throw) Ocean Breeze by Chesapeake Bay Enjoy your Thursday evening!
  10. Good Evening! During the day I melted some oldies, and they just didn't have that **oomph** anymore. -_- English Ivy by Aunt Nenas (is she still around?) Also English Ivy by Dream Tarts, this must have been a sample, it was a single and still wrapped in it's "saran wrap". :huh: Along with those, I burned a candle, Tropical Ferns by Aroma Beads I just changed everything up, so this evening it's: Pink Sugared Blueberries by Butterfly Lane Scents Black Currant Tea by a lovely CF friend Muscadine Vine by Buggytown and Bubblezooka by Cozy Cottage in DS room Enjoy the rest of your day, everyone. Wishing peace to all who are struggling.
  11. Good Morning! I have fallen behind again! Over the weekend, I remember melting Mid Summer's Night by Haleys and burning 2 Shooting Star candles by ScentBeads (grocery store acquisition) along with it, they smell very much alike, a favorite "good smelling man" smell to me! Rewarming (to change out later) Rain Kissed by Scentsationals from yesterday, while enjoying a Morenci candle, Pomegranate. Also a Karma (Lush Type) tart, a sample from unknown vendor finishing it's life in my room. Hope everyone has a wonderful day!
  12. I sure have not, but I'd like to find one, too! They mostly smell like oranges, and real orange blossoms have no "orange" smell Keep us posted if you find one!
  13. HAPPY FRIDAY! I'm melting Lemongrass by Dream Tarts all over my house - it smells great in here! Just a F.Y.I. for fans of Louise, in case you missed her letter, she is open in April, no password necessary: http://www.freewebs.com/dreamtarts/ And guess what!? She has VOO DOO LOVE! (the earthy one from the scent description) I also read this morning that Deanna is back from hiatus and CCCC is open. Hope everyone has a great day
  14. Hello! It's almost Friday! woo hoo (actually it doesn't make much difference - lol) Yesterday I melted Lift Off by Glade Wax Melts. It's described as white tea and magnolia, and it was fabulous. Great throw! I'm so pleased because I made a small grocery store haul (coupons!) and got 12 Glade Melts! Today is Yuzu by Mimi's Melters and I added a couple of candles: Coconut and Mango by Scent Beads (another grocery store deal) and Orange Grove by Seed (yet another grocery store - that's what most of my purchases are limited to, I don't get in any trouble that way!) Enjoy your evening!
  15. WTG Maggie! I have decided that, for the month of April, I will not be melting any wax whatsoever . . . . . . . . . . . APRIL FOOLS! you all knew better than that anyway! I am re-warming China Rain by Country Chunkie until I get back from school drop off, and then I will probably change everything out. I still have Voodoo Love by LSC in my room, I keep turning it on and then off, I guess I will have to give it up today Anyway, happy APRIL FOOLS DAY! Don't get tricked !
