A winner and some Teacup Candles

It's been a busy week here at Rose among Thorns. Firstly, a big thanks to everyone who entered and promoted my giveaway on the Lilmagoolie blog, and an even bigger thanks to Maddie who organised it all. A winner was drawn, and some rose scented candles are now on their way to Anna Vincent. Congratulations Anna!

The other exciting news this week, is that I launched the first candles of my soy wax range – teacup candles. They have proved rather a hit so far, with requests for new fragrances to add to the collection. Chocolate will be first on the list, and coffee will follow once I get the fragrance in. They are make to order, so if you fall in love with a cup, you can have a candle made with your favourite fragrance. Some cups are very limited edition, and I only have one. So if you really like one, get in quick before you miss out! Currently available are: Strawberry, Frangipani, Vanilla and Rose. Other fragrances will be added once I have tested them in the soy wax.

I was back in Nelson a few weeks ago, where my parents had cleaned out underneath their house in preparation for my husband to insulate it for them. Over 30 years worth of things had been stored under there, including about 10 bikes – if anyone in Nelson wants some old bikes to do up, please let me know! I rescued this great vintage suitcase. It has had a bit of a rough life, and it's hinges have rusted out, but it makes a great prop for photos, and might look quite good on my stall as well...
