Happy Halloween

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays! It stinks that I'm at the store until 5pm today, because I can't wait to get home and give out candy! I love seeing all the kiddies in their little costumes!

And I have good news… Ok well maybe its only good news for me. I have an idea for the display window! Yay! The challenge now is taking that idea out of my head and making the window. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well with it this weekend. I will keep you posted and maybe show you a pic or two. I'm going for a more simple look since its only for 3 weeks. You can let me know what you think when you see it.

Last night on my way home I stopped at Mr. Allen’s Florist in Brick to see if I could get some inspiration for my window. And thanks to the help of the very nice woman there I left with not one, but two awesome pieces that will be perfect in the window. I know I should have gotten her name so I could thank her properly, but it was late and I was hungry and not thinking. They have a lot of beautiful things in there, it actually got some good ideas for the Christmas window too… so it appears that I'm off to a good start for that one.

Well, have fun trick or treating today! Make sure you check that candy first!

Tick Tock, Tick Tock, Tick Tock

Do you hear that? That's time ticking away and now I have two more days before I have to change the display window, and I haven’t got a single idea.

Goodness… what to do? I guess I will have to dedicate some time today to come up with something.

My husband Tom who did such an awesome job on our Halloween display doesn’t want any part of this one. But he said he will take care of our Christmas window. Great! Pick all the easy windows to do!

Here is a photo so you can see his work. Maybe you can call him and try to convince him to help me out here!

Take a good look though because that window might be empty for the next three weeks if I don’t think of something fast!

Off to Google pilgrims….

The Start of Something Wonderful...

Or, so I can only hope!

Gotta get a blog! You MUST have a blog! Do you blog? Are you a blogger? That's all I hear lately. I'm a candle maker, not a blogger! Or so I thought! Because alas, I do have a blog, and as soon and I hit the publish post button on this baby, POOF! I am a blogger too!

So I have jumped in head first. As I have mentioned in the past, I am about as exciting as watching paint dry, but you have to give me credit for trying, right? I'm mean after all, instead of blogging, what I should be doing is trying to think of what I am going to do for the store display window after the Halloween stuff comes out. I have about 3 weeks between Halloween and Thanksgiving that I need to fill since I cant put Christmas stuff in there Nov. 1st. Can I? If only!

We have been crazy busy getting all the Holidays scents done so they can get out onto the shelves. Who has time to design a display window? Any volunteers out there, just give me a call!

I will try to keep this as exciting as I can and post often, so please stop back and check it out.
You may even find a secret blog only discount or special or maybe even a contest.

Oh and pleaase feel free to comment all you want! They do have to get approved by us first just to keep the spam out but we will publish all your comments.
