Melting Basket 140


Wax from the last basket I would buy again because it was so good: Bohemienne Life Raven's Myst, Dessa's Smoky Mountain Berries, CFTKR Creamy Peppermint Serendipity, Woodland Festival, Celtic Moonspice, Mulled Wine and Pink Sugared Watermelon. Oh! And the Witch's Brew and Pumpkin Stew. I like that one.

CFTKR- Patchouli Chocolate
CFTKR- Wood Vanilla
CFTKR- Strawberry Margarita
SMT- Campfire Marshmallow/Fireside/Vanilla Sandalwood/Marshmallow Fireside
SMT- Peppermint/Blue Sugar/Campfire Marshmallows/Fireside

I know it is a small basket but if you are interested in hearing about any in particular just let me know. 


So this is probably one of my last melting baskets in this house of ours. I plant on melting all the wax in these bags, not just a piece or two so it should last me a good few weeks. A couple days ago we signed a contract to sell our home. Our move out date is May 31st. Which just happens to be my very last day of work. 


Hoping the inspections and everything go well. It is an older couple who bought our house. I hope they enjoy the quiet peace it holds and the birds and the woods. I hope it treats them well in the twilight of their lives. 


I went to a job fair for the Orange County School Board and have a couple options brewing for my own career. I have also started hitting Zillow pretty hard looking for a place we can land. I am trying not to order too much that might take a while to ship while we transition. I keep eyeing up a Bathing Garden order but I think I will wait until after the move. 


Thank you guys for the support and encouragement. I will have a post tomorrow with a small giveaway. Hope you check it out. I am also trying to brainstorm ideas for my blog's 5th anniversary celebration that will be at the end of this month. What kinds of things would be nice to giveaway?

  6. Yay, a wax basket post! Love those. I'm not a patchouli fan as we know but I've had a few candles as of late that had it blended in and didn't mind it so chocolate patchouli... hmm. Idk about the chocolate note though. Blue sugar, campire and marshmallow sounds good too, you'll have to let me know how you like it.
    Wishing you well on the job hunt and the big move. I know good things will come from both.

    1. How cool that you were able to find a few patch scents that you have enjoyed! I love when my tastes change a little and it opens up new fragrances for me. Banana is one of those death notes turned fun notes. I hate chocolate in home fragrance but somehow this smells way different that chocolate. more like a brown musk but then the patch is heavy so it would still probably be a no-go. I love how strong it is. I will definitely let you know how that blue sugar blend is!

      Thank you for the well wishes, Jessica!!! And same to you too. I hope everything works out for both our families.
