Gentle Friends, I am still stitching away on AotH, but my camera is not cooperating at the moment so I am unable to post an updated shot of the changes I've made and the bits I've frogged.... oh well.
I did have an idea for a post last week and took some snaps so here goes.... I'm not sure if I've ever mentioned how much I really enjoy Yankee candles. I've been buying them for years and usually stock up in the Fall with the lovley autumnal offerings to carry me over the Spring and Summer months. About 4 or 5 years ago I was introduced to "Autumn Lodge" a really wonderful fireplace/cherry tobacco smelling candle. I think I bought 3 or 4 of them that year. I burned them frequently over the Spring and Summer months, lighting my last AL candle sparingly....my plan was to get more of them in the Fall since it was a Seasonal candle it was only available during the Fall months. You can see where this is going, Fall came and went and no Autumn Lodge!! To say I was disappointed would be kind, at that point I started to look on line and found out that this candle also goes by the name "Santas Pipe" and is a red color - but the few of them that I could find out there were horrendously expensive.... like $75 to $100+ per candle, when I could find them..... and yes, I like this candle a lot but I'm certainly not going to spend that kind of money for one!!
This year the early catalog of the Fall releases came out and there it was "Autumn Lodge"... I ordered one immediately just to see if it was the same candle as before - I still had some of the very last of the AL candles that I saved. So, I knew that when it came I had a "control candle" to see if they were going to be the same as before. Well, it came and "oh happy day" they were exactly the same.... so I ordered 9 more of them that evening....
... and since that 2nd order, I've placed a 3rd order..... you can tell it is my very favourite candle ever and I will stockpile them .... now where to store them???
I've gotten some looks from Rico about this little bit of crazy on my part, but that's how it is in my little corner of the world!! So, if you like a fireplace and the smell of cherry tobacco this is a candle you might want to try.
There you sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!
