The first tulips of the season

Sunday, January 7, 2018


My husband and I usually buy ourselves a
 Christmas gift to put under the tree. 
I bought two candles I really loved on Ebay
 on 8th December (in the UK).
And guess what? 
They didn't arrive on time 
(they came last Friday). 

I so love these labels (I think I just started a
 Yankee Candle bird's collection).

If only I knew the name of the birds (the first two).

Me and my candles - Bath & Body Works

End of November I placed an Ebay order in the US for
 five Bath & Body Works Christmas candles.
 These candles are very hard to find here in Europe. 

Of course shipping cost are high from the
 US to Luxembourg (although the candles
 are a lot cheaper), but what really makes
 it expensive are the Customs duties and taxes.
 However, sometimes you're lucky and they
 don't pick out your parcel and I was lucky this time!!! 

The candles are so beautiful with their wintery
 labels and their special lids and I love how they smell
 (all five of them).

I'll give one of them to my friend for Christmas
 (Snowed in) and I already started burning
 two of the other ones myself.

Decorating for Christmas

Vintage wooden gift tags

I love crafting for Christmas!
This year I made vintage wooden gift tags.

The chalk paint I used gives them a really nice
 vintage look. I love how they turned out

(and he loves to help me wrap my presents).

Me and my candles - Christmas (Yankee Candle/Country Candle)

It took me a couple of months to complete my 
little Christmas candle collection, but it was
 so much fun. Look at those gorgeous labels! 
I found the three Yankee Candles on Ebay.
I also tried several gingerbread candles, 
but didn't like most of them because they were
 just too spicy for my taste (although I love gingerbread). Silver bells is from the current Country
 Candle collection. Lovely label and not the
 usual Christmas scent. Perfect.

Am I strong enough to really, really start burning them?
Yes, I am (a little sad perhaps), but hey, they are 
candles, they are meant to be burned ;).
1st Sunday of advent, December 3rd!
