new candles being sold at flowers forever

A couple weeks ago I received an order from a local shop here in Columbia, SC. I was so excited I did a blog post about the shop and promised to post pictures of the candles I would be making as soon as they were ready. Well, the order has been filled, and I am thrilled with the results! Notice the polk-a-dots and stripes are actually inlaid in the base wax color, instead of being situated on top of it. This allows for a smooth finish; a¬†great improvement I think! Visit Flowers Forever in Columbia, SC to snatch up a few for yourself. If you’re interested in viewing more pictures of the candles being sold at Flowers Forever or of the ones I’ve made in the past visit my facebook page and become a fan!

dinnerware revision

September 3, 2010 at 3:52 pm (susanna)

May 25th, 2009 was one of the happiest days of my life, and there is nothing I would change about it. It was on this day that I married my best friend, and we started our life together as husband and wife. Now we live together in an amazing little apartment in a fantastic old house in Columbia, SC. Having had over a year to settle in and see how everything looks all set up, I now realize that trying to register for wedding gifts while attempting to survive the last semester of college was rather . . . well rushed. I love all the items that were purchased for us. I just didn’t do a very good job of matching them. So even though I’ve only been married for 15 months, I’m looking into selling our dinnerware and buying new sets that will better coordinate with the styles I had in mind. The green¬†dinnerware is what we currently have and is extremely fun and stylish, but I am, and ever shall be, in love with yellow. So I am keeping an eye on these amber and white dinnerware sets being sold at World Market. I’d love to mix and match them to make for a more simple look with splashes of color. I’m attempting to sell the dinnerware on ebay for now to see if I can recycle the funds into purchasing the other sets from World Market. Let me know what you think!
