a special candle project




So a few weeks ago my neighbor passed away, his wife had passed away about 4 years earlier. I pretty much grew up playing at their house as much as I did at my house they were basically like my grandparents even though they weren't related.

Well now the house is being cleaned up by their kids for a big estate auction. His wife was real into canning and had tons of empty jars as well as ones filled with fruits and other good things. I decided to borrow two of the jars before they were taken(shhh don't tell) to make into candles for their kids. One of the lids still has her writing on it so I think this will make a great keepsake for the family.

First one I made and is pictured is scented in Granny's Pie Crust and the one I am pouring right now will have a small touch of the pie crust as well as Strawberry Fields so it should smell like strawberry pie. I did color the second one with a touch of pink, but as you can see from my hands the pink all pretty much ended up on me. That pink dye and I never get along as it seems to get every where!

I will be giving these to them on Sunday. :)

Reminder this Saturday I will be at the Abbey Antique Car/Craft show in Canon City, Colorado.
