Today I splurged and bought this tall tree candle for myself! Quite sometime ago I commented about a friend who makes candles from palm oil. I've been buying his taper candles all year. Not too long ago my friend's candles were featured in Oprah's Buying Guide. But I've been buying them B.O! Before Oprah! :)
The jar candle in this photo is a Yankee Candle, but the square tapers are my friends too! The little red tree was a gift to me from my friend so my tall tree wouldn't be lonely. Aren't they cute together?
Back on December 2, Sew, Mama, Sew was hosting their annual give away day. I really did mean to comment about it before it was over so others could go and get in on the fun, but life got a bit hectic. Well, long story short...I did have a little bit of good fortune. From Made by the Mama Monster, I won these adorable fabric pieces, a raw edge headband, a Utah Truffle and some other homemade chocolate bon-bons...which I ate all at once! Did I share the truffle? No way! Honestly, I'm not very good at sharing chocolates. I did let my daughter wear the headband though! :)
