HomeWorx Candles by Harry Slatkin | Review | Creamy Dreamy Vanilla Candle

My first burn of this last night for over five hours left me wondering just what was this fragrance.  I knew I knew it, but the hour was late and I was tired so I extinguished it for the night with the promise of a second burn today.  And as soon as I lit it this morning...I knew.

Life Talk | Winter Storm ( nor' easter ) Skylar - March 13, 2018

Dear Old Man Winter. Thank you so much for the blessings of white we have had so far this season. There is nothing like a sparkling coating of fresh snow to bring about the inspiration of a winter wonderland.  Christmas just wouldn't be Christmas without you. But this is what I was thinking... There are so many other places in the world that w...

Life Talk | Valentine's Day Roses

My Valentine's Day Pink Roses and White Lily flower bouquet. While shopping at Walmart on the 7th, I found this one bouquet nestled among the red rose bunches and it was too beautiful to leave behind. Priced at $14.97, I couldn't have asked for a more lovely gift from my husband. The photos don't do this justice, the coloring is so perfect it reminds me of a bridal bouquet.

Happy Valentine's Day!
