October's Spooktacular Scents

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone!

 

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend.

 

Been very busy. On Friday I went with my DD's to see the play Beautiful. It was about the early part of Carole King's life. It was excellent and very enjoyable.

 

Yesterday I took my parents to a casino in PA. That turned out to be difficult. My siblings met me there but unfortunately it's getting harder and harder to manage them. Both are in wheelchairs . Sad.

 

Today has been very quiet. DD was at a wedding last night and didn't sleep home. I wasn't even in the mood to melt. Just trying to catch up on some reading and laundry. Next weekend DH comes home and my cousin and her husband are visiting from WA state. Will be very busy as they are staying with me and the entire family is coming for dinner on Sunday. My cousin wanted to visit my parents. Her mom is my mom's sister. She passed away in March and my mom really is not doing well either. Very sad to watch people deteriorate right before your eyes.

 

Hopefully tomorrow is a better day!

 

Good night all.

Love the tile Biolaeagles!

 

Michele...I'm glad you had fun at the play...it has great reviews! I'm sorry your parents aren't doing very well...I know it's difficult to see them decline. It was so thoughtful to try to take them out.

 

It's Honey Gingerbread by Sniff My Tarts...yum!

 

Goodnight [smilie=thzzz003]

I know what you mean, Michele. The aging process sure is not fair. I hope all goes well with the visit.

 

Good one Biolaeagles - :sHa_thumbgoodjob:

 

 

I have vowed not to open my last couple of orders until I get some of my old melts used up. That may be one step away from real hording behavior! Not only will I have lot of tarts, but boxes of unopened ones as well. [smilie=th_thanimeomega_emoticon

 

Tonight - VDS - Cotton Candy Milkshake.

Hi there

 

Love the title, Biolaeagles! :wub: October is one of my favorite months of the year.

 

Maggie ~ I have plenty to be grateful for every day, so I try not to get bogged down by the little nuances of life. ;)

 

Michele ~ Life sure does seem to fly by too quickly. [smilie=th_empathy]

My mom's turning 78 today and the girls and I are taking her to dinner. Where has the time gone?

 

Debra ~ I placed a Southbound order yesterday...and did a Blank Label last weekend. When does it end??? [smilie=th_fear8]

I haven't changed the melters today. It's been a hard day and I think I'm still in shock. My kids are both home from classes and they're doing their best to process everything. They both know people who were victims. Please keep our city in your thoughts and prayers.

mpfand-I didn't realize you lived in LV. So incredibly sad. Definitely praying for your city.

 

Honey bear- Happy Birthday to your mom. Time flies by too quickly. My mom is 91.

 

Maggie- yes it's very difficult to watch them decline.

 

Debra- That's a good idea. Hopefully it works for you. I'm trying not to order. I ran out of space for now. I really don't need anymore wax.

 

My melt for today was SGA Autumn Delight. Not sure if I'm a fan of this one. It had a bit too much caramel for me.

Good Morning.

 

The news lately has been so depressing and the horror in Las Vegas is heart wrenching.

Mpfand...I'm so sorry that your kids knew people there...praying for all.

 

Honeybear...I hope your Mom had a [smilie=th_f0424ea25f87db180cc7d

Maggie ~ My mom did have a wonderful birthday! ???? Thank you ????

 

Going to lunch with an old friend today and then making a stop at the mall to get a coupe of requested candles from B&BW for DD#1. She has recently decided she is loving wax and needing more of it! Lol I think she's following in my footsteps after all. ????

 

ST Curiosity Often Leads To Trouble

SB Pink Sugar Cookie

 

Burning Yankee Sugar & Spice ~ Halfway done with this big candle and can't wait til it's gone so I can try another. It's okay, but I wouldn't repurchase.

Thank you Maggie, Debra and Michele. It's been a tough few days....seems wrong to go about life, yet we have to. The encouraging thing has been watching our city come together and help. Lines to donate blood are wrapped around the buildings of the blood centers, cars full of water and food are being dropped off at every police station, hospital and blood center, over 3 million dollars have been donated....

 

Finally changed a couple of melters to Pumpkin Harvest from Sonoma.

Hi everyone!

 

Placed my fall order with Nene's recently so I'm melting the last few of her fall scents that I had left from last year. I think Nene's does the best fall and spicy scents along with Front Porch and Swan Creek.

 

These are both Nene's:

 

Cinnamon Glazed Fritters...ultimate spicy donut scent..love!

 

Persimmon Spice...this scent screams fall to me and I love how it lingers.

Aria - Nene's Persimmon Spice is one of my all-time favorites! [smilie=th_LOVE]

 

Honeybear - Oh, candle-shopping! Doesn't matter who it is for, I just like to go and sniff! [smilie=th_ahaaha]

 

Today - anyone remember Mookie Doodle? This one is very old, but I am going to pop it in the melter - Strawberry Kiwi

Mpfand...it's true that oftentimes the best comes out in people when the worst times hit.

 

Aria...love both of those scents! <3

 

Debra...I remember Mookie Doodle! I'm surprised I haven't run into any of her stuff during my many reshuffling of wax escapades! Lol

 

Still melting Satsuma...think it's time for a change.

Biolaeagles-a little late but I love the thread title!

Good Evening!

 

Tried CLKS Pumpkin Cupcake but "surprisingly" it was wayyyyy to strong for me! I hardly ever say that...lol. Switched it for Pistachio Wafer by Gio & Turner.
