yummy yum.....

so our new digs still smell like fresh paint and new carpet.
a great smell (don't get us wrong) however we are due for a change!

to remedy that lingering new store aroma (and to satisfy our own selfish candle jones) we have a few fabulous yummy yummy candle lines on the way!!

first to arrive will be Archipelago
(one of denise's all time favorite lines.)
scents from fruity to spicy to herbal to warm! oh we just can't wait!




we also have Pacifica candles due in soon.
a fantastic and local nw soy candle company. They too offer fresh, take me away scents.

so next time you drop in, take a whiff and enjoy our new store candle scents (so much nicer than new paint and carpet scents!)


***bonus: join our candle club...for every candle you purchase get a stamp. after 6 candle stamps take 50% off any candle of your choice!!

strangers in the box















COME, LOOK WITH ME INSIDE THIS DRAWER IN THIS BOX I'VE OFTEN SEEN,
AT THE PICTURES, BLACK AND WHITE FACES PROUD, STILL, SERENE.




I WISH I KNEW THE PEOPLE THESE STRANGERS IN THE BOX,
THEIR NAMES AND ALL THEIR MEMORIES ARE LOST AMONG MY SOCKS.
I WONDER WHAT THEIR LIVES WERE LIKE HOW DID THEY SPEND THEIR DAYS?
WHAT ABOUT THEIR SPECIAL TIMES?
I'LL NEVER KNOW THEIR WAYS.






IF ONLY SOMEONE HAD TAKEN TIME TO TELL WHO, WHAT, OR WHEN,
THESE FACES OF MY HERITAGE WOULD COME TO LIFE AGAIN.
COULD THIS BECOME THE FATE OF PICTURES WE TAKE TODAY?
THE FACES AND MEMORIES SOMEDAY TO BE PASSED AWAY?


MAKE TIME TO SAVE YOUR STORIES SEIZE THE OPPORTUNITY WHEN IT KNOCKS,
OR SOMEDAY YOU AND YOURS COULD BE THE STRANGERS IN THE BOX.
