Wick trimming is giving me RSI. Well, not really but it is bloody repetetive. This batch was labelled this afternoon and will be packaged up and posted out to a number of stockists on Wednesday. I won't be taking any more wholesale orders until February, folks. This lot have been waiting a while as it is!
Simple pleasures. Simple joys. #bubbles
A drizzly Sunday morning afforded me some much needed pouring time in the studio. Rhubarb & Pear tins poured today us a lot of new Bush Christmas candles in preparation for patient stockists and upcoming markets

My husband is insane and likes to do a bit of crutching on a really hot day. I will at home under the air con when you need me, love.

Some of the 86 candle tins ready today. This lot took 3 days of prepping tins, wicking, pouring, curing, cleaning and labelling. They will all be going out to stockists this week and next...packing the orders seems to take the longest! Then back into another batch tomorrow.

Check out this exquisite smocking. This old baby dress came from my mums collection and my daughter wore it a couple of times as a wee bub. You won't find this kind if thing at Cotton On! I write about my love of old timey embroidery and smocking in the latest Bunch of Fives over at the Quandialla Candle Co website (under the Our Blog tab). Pop over and have a read?

Aaaaand we're back. First of Feb, first studio day in over a month (and boy, did I need it...and I am a bit lazy).
Black coffee, Classic FM and a sausage dog for company. I am good to go!

My parents have bought a beautiful old home in Young. Its so light and bright and has the lovely wide hallway these old ones all had. Mum belonging to school of "any colour as long as its white" is planning the new paint job. I think right now it looks like a Mondrian painting. #whitepaint#mondrian#newoldhomes#bigchanges#theymightactuallymovetotown

Home. To see the golden afternoon light on the river gums after a summer thunderstorm has drenched the garden is the warmest welcome.

The beautiful @sandalwood_homewares in Braidwood is one of my stockists and I visited for the first time today on my way down the coast. Make sure you pop in here...if you are addicted to scarves (like me) then this is your shop.
