day at home sick & some candle making

hello to you all from rainy Brisbane!
today was the perfect "day at home" kind of day.
i have been battling a fluey cold all week, which kinda got the better of me over night.
with the tissue box as my best friend and not much voice, i decided to spend the morning in the kitchen by the warmth of the stove melting soy wax and pouring it into
vintage containers of all sorts.

here is a gorgeous "made in France" jar soy wax candle.
Baby powder fragrance. oh so yummy!
'Le Parfait Super' scribed across the front.
remember the cute little cups i found at the markets?
i polished them up and here's one made into a candle!
pretty English rose china
German cup on blue floral saucer

more fine bone china on an unmarked saucer exactly the same as the one above
cute glass jug candle
silver plate baby cup with matching spoon candle!
such a warm relaxing activity to do on such a rainy day!
our house is currently filled with rose and baby powder fragrances!
these soy wax candles are all for sale on my Lilies for Kate Facebook page
the perfect reusable/refillable Mother's Day gift :)

  2. I love the beautiful containers you have chosen. I have never tried making my own candles, yet I am known as a pyromanic when it comes to candle burning. Lovely, thanks for sharing. Cheers SpecialK XoXo

  4. Candles are perfect on a gloomy day. Your containers for the soy wax are sooo sweet. Can't imagine these aren't a great seller for you. Sure hope you're feeling better soon.
