If you would like to hear more about any of these scents in particular, please comment and I will do an in depth review. 

While moseying about town earlier in January, I uncovered a few home decor treasures. The chalkboard fish was on clearance at Marshall's for $7. The girls love writing on it. Scarlette left this message most recently.

This arrangement sits on the cabinets above my sink in the kitchen. I have been on the look out for something to stick in the white wooden urn for the longest time but nothing seemed to fit until I found this seashell spray of sticks and bits at Kirkland's. I tend to find things I like for my home though when I am not really scouting.

How is your February starting out? Did you order from Candles From the Keeping Room or Rosegirls? I grabbed most of my wax budget's worth from Carol this time around. Rosegirls is currently open (YAY!) and I bought a few bags from there too but I am hoping Rosegirls stays open like Jenny plans so I can buy more from her next month. Time will tell. 


  1. I would like to see reviews of Sugared Lavender Twist and Pretty In Pink.

    I like that you have a decor theme in your house and can easily add to it as you find things. We have no theme here. Our interests vary so much, and even my style choices vary. Since we live in an old country farmhouse, I'd love to do an old country farmhouse theme. Like, really old fashioned. But there are just so many things that I also love that don't fit with that theme. So we continue to have a mishmash of greatly ignored house things.


    1. I am thoroughly excited to melt those two and will gladly review them. Thank you so much for gifting these <3

      A theme does help me. Thankfully my mermaid heart loves all things oceanic. I tried to do a retro 50's diner kitchen and it just wouldn't form so I repainted and did what I do best. Beach. A collection of mish mash kitschy is fun and way more exciting though! I bet you could still pull off old farmhouse with a dash of whatever it is that you love.

  2. Looks like a lot of great scents! Love the new d├ęcor, too! Looks great & I wouldn't expect anything less from my favorite mermaid, LOL! :-)

    1. <3 thanks!!! I found a store down in Ft. Myers/Naples called Wilford & Lee and it has the most amazing nautical stuff.

  3. The seashell spray is perfect for the urn and what a great find at Marshalls :)
    You've got some great melts coming up, I'd be interested in seeing how TDC marsh fireside compares to others.
    Have a great week Julie <3

    1. I am excited about that scent. I plan on putting one in the living room and one in bedroom tandem so I can have full marshmallow fireside immersion. Thank you Sunnee! Hope you do too!

  4. Love the chalkboard fish! The girls writing on it is precious. <3

    Would love to see a review of Super Tarts- Once Upon A Time and Glitterati- Purple Rain. No RG or CFTKR for me, but I might get some RG down the line. Hopefully she stays opened for a long time!

    1. You need that Glitterati review ASAP!!! Your name is sooo close! Are you excited? I have been hoarding Once Upon A Time but Ashley gave me a clamshell and between that and actually watching the show I am dying to melt it!

      I hope RG stays open too. I am hopeful this will be a great compromise for her.

      I adore the girls' writing on stuff like this. Glad I took a picture to look back on <3
