This new basket is fun for me because I didn't pick anything in it. Easter afternoon I asked my sister, Darby, to fill up a melting basket for me. It was fun to see her pick what she would like to smell and things I probably would not have reached for, the only thing off limits were my last two CFTKR bunny shapes. Gotta hoard those. Here's what Darby picked for me:

CFTKR- Cedar Sage and Blackberry
CFTKR- Sugared Strawberry Spruce
CFTKR- Primitive Wishes
CFTKR- Rosemary Mint Aveda
CFTKR- Amish Quilt <3 gift
CFTKR- Chocolate Orchid
CFTKR- Celtic Moonspice <3 gift
CFTKR- Jam & Scones... sensing Darbs wants me to melt my CFTKR
Ten Digit Creations- Vintage Vanilla
Vintage Chic Scents- Blanche & Baby Jane
Beezy- Apple Cinnamon
Streetman- Cotton Candied Spruce Berries
Rosegirls- Lemon Poppyseed Wildberry Birthday Cake
Rosegirls- Peppermint Royal Sugar Cookie muffin
Rosegirls- Sweet Lemon Confection Orange Revival Sage muffin
Rosegirls- Peppermint Lemonade Sugared Apple... killin' me Smalls with using my Muffin Club muffins with no new ones in sight >cries little tears<

If you want to know more about any of these please comment and I will review it just for you!

Spring Break went by smoothly. A little too much "To Do" and not enough snuggles and fun but we did squeeze some in while we could. I am looking forward to Rosegirls opening now that it is close and the site is open for plotting. I do wish I could place a bigger order like last time, but it just isn't meant to be. I will however, be plotting a store haul next month, so that is something to look forward to as well. 

I have a few outstanding wax orders that should arrive soon: Lasting Scent Candles, Rosegirls (Mini Melters x two), and Glitterati. How is your week coming along? Melt anything extra yummy? Waiting on any orders?


  1. I absolutely want to hear your thoughts on those muffins!

    Nothing exciting melting here. Haven't bought any tarts lately either. Those little wood wick candles from Dollar Tree have been fun. Not much for scent, but then, I didn't expect them to be. They burn very nicely though.


    1. Yes ma'am! I am sad to see them go. I have a feeling they are going to be awesome.

      Glad the Dollar Tree wood wicks are burning nicely. I think I like the crackle of noise better than anything else on those anyway ;-)

      Hoping the tart bug nibbles at you next month at the store and you find something to get excited about <3

      I hope your week is great Deb.

  2. Out of the blue your CFTKR candle came to mind while I was waking up. Not sure if there is a common acronym for too pretty to you plan on using it?

    Pretty baby's breath picture, with the light and my screen dimmed I though it was a painting and then saw you and Adam. Ok, I might not be fully awake....I love your AMI trip pics too. We have a printer meant for photos that we gave away the paper for but I'd like to try a few on it and make a beach series.

    1. I glance at that candle every morning when I am in my closet selecting my clothing for the day. I am christening the acronym TATU (tattoo!) Too Amazing To Use. This applies for soaps too. I will absolutely burn it one day. When? Maybe when I am receiving my last rites one day? The aroma that lifts me to heaven? <3 Seriously, I have no clue when. I think I will just know.

      Thank you! I had fun snapping photos that day on the beach. So much beauty out there. The baby's breath does look like a painting. The photo resolution is poor until you click on it. I hope you are having a relaxing Sunday Jean :-D

  3. ooooo... nice picks, Darby!!

    today wrapped up our spring break week.. I'm sad to see it end.. I'm ready for some lazy summer days!!
    I am currently enjoy the Oud Noir you sent me. I was a little worried it would over power my room, as the cold sniff seemed intense.. but it's verra nice! ;-)
    I am getting sooo excited for RG opening!! no pressure!! lol

    1. Spring Break blues!!!! I am ready for summer break too... 38 more school days! Glad you are enjoying Oud Noir! It is quite a nice scent.

      I am crossing fingers, toes and send up petitions that we can get our order in this week!! GAH!!

  4. Wonderful photos!!!!

    Everything in that basket looks awesome! Enjoy!!!!

    1. Thank you <3

      Sister picked well! I can't wait to get to melting! Yummy smells on the menu. I hope you have a good week.

  5. Hi Julie :)
    I'd love to know how the strength/throw is for RG's Ooey Gooey Crackers, Simply Amazing Bakery, Lemon Noel Smoothie. They all sound delishious!
    I love getting to see your photos of fun and sunshine. I'm still in two layers with the heater on. <3

    1. For me, ooey gooey crackers and lemon Noel smoothie had nice strong throws and delicious scents. Simply Amazing Bakery is yummy too but at about a medium throw in my home. I love it to pieces though.

      Still chilly up over there huh? It stayed cool here longer than normal but I think the last cool snap is over for us. Sweltering days ahead!

  6. This post made laugh out loud! Apparently I do have secret love for CFTKR. This is my subconscious telling me to order the goodies and who am I to not listen! Haha. I really enjoyed picking your basket out this week so thank you for letting me do so. I'm happy you had a good spring break :) Love you sister!

    1. Thank you sister! I love you and hope you have a good week at work!

    2. P.S. You have excellent taste! Thank YOU for making a basket worth diving into!
