Judson the "Pumpkin Dog" on the job at the candle factory.
Judson, our golden retriever, often comes to the candle factory to hang out. Most of the time he is a greeter in the candle factory store, sleeping somewhere in between his "work". He agreed to pose for this photo!
I love the extended drape of the silk fall leaf garland. You may be lucky enough to be able to bring a pet to work - if not, a pet is such a wonderful greeter when you get home!
They seem to help us keep things in perspective.
So - let's talk about Pumpkins!
Heading out to a local pumpkin festival this weekend or maybe early next month? It's tempting to choose big pumpkins for the front porch or steps. How about picking up a few smaller sizes to create a fall display in the family room or dining room table? Fill a vintage bowl, or whatever you like, with some water and a few floating pumpkin candles and before you can say Ichabod Crane, you have created a beautiful centerpiece for a family dinner! Invite a few friends for pumpkin soup - you know - show off your creation! Our pumpkin candles are unscented so the aromas of your meal take center stage!
Looking for a wonderful scented candle? This time of the year our best fragrance is Autumn Spice. It's one of our own blends - kind of a secret - but you can sense a bit if cinnamon and sweet fruit.
Candlelight adds warmth and welcome to your home with such simplicity - a finishing touch to a marvelous meal; a thoughtful "thank-you" gift.
Tuck a few pumpkin and autumn spice candles into your welcome basket for a new neighbor (along with your homemade jam).
Looking for long lasting luminary candles for the carved pumpkins? Call the candle factory - we actually designed a luminary candle that burns brightly and lasts all evening long (maybe two) for luminary bags or inside the carved pumpkins. 928-772-1898. They are about 2" wide x 1" tall so it is stable shape. The wick is a little larger so you will get a brighter glow.
