In the Works...

I have a TON of fragrant, beautiful beeswax I've been trying to decide how to use, so I'm in the process of making blackened beeswax Easter bunnies and these beeskep candles.  Checked the burn time for the wicks and I think I need to go a size they haven't yet met my approval. When they do, I'll be listing the beeskeps in my etsy shop. The fragrance of the natural beeswax is so yummy by itself I can't bring myself to add a fragrance oil, so I think they'll be left  "au naturale" :)  They're a nice size..just a little larger than a large votive. I just love having candles burning throughout the house..makes everything have such a soft, warm glow.

I'm enjoying reading your comments on my give-away. Thank you for taking the time to enter, and for sharing on your blogs! The time for selecting a winner is getting closer :)

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone..looks like much of the country is enjoying a February warm-up (thank heavens!)

Why I am so tired of snow....

Here's my big boy, Clouseau, bringing in half the snow in my backyard along with him. Remember I have two, yes, two of said animals. :) Means I get to mop the floor an awful lot.

My First Giveaway!!

Well, there is still a TON of snow on the ground...nothing green in sight, so I thought instead of an Easter theme for my first give-away I'd make something for St. Patty's Day to add some "green" to  my blog! That, plus I am a true Irish hair, green eyes, freckles and all, so it's only fitting :)

I'm giving my "Leprechauns Welcome" hand painted, antiqued and grubbied up shelf sitter, along with two crocheted shamrock mug-rugs to the lucky winner...after all, isn't St Patrick's Day the day for good luck?

All you need to you is be a follower of my blog, leave me a comment here, and if you have a blog yourself please post this give-away on your sidebar.  Each of these three "requirements" will earn you a chance at all three and you have three chances. The last day to register will be March 1, 2011.  Please be sure to leave your email address or a way for me to contact you should you win.

Good luck!
Prim hugs,
