What's New & What's Coming!

What's New & What's Coming!

Hello everyone, I hope spring has sprung in your area like it has here in North East Tennessee.

In fact, our yearly flock of geese just arrived this morning and I can hear them just a caring on with each other on who is going to get that just right nesting spot on the riverbank. Our flock of ducks came in early this week, so all with Mother Nature is as it should be. Give it about two months or so and we will have a yard full of baby geese and ducks!

Now as for the site. New things have been happening since we last chatted. Our store front has a new look; I hope this is easier for you to navigate. I've added a new line of 12 ounce container candles. Please forgive the fact that all of the product pictures are not finished yet, but in a few weeks we should have that accomplished.

We have also added a new little item that we hope will create a more pleasant shopping experience for you. You will now find the sub-category named (Sale!) This is located on the store front under the main category named Top categories.
Clicking on the Sales category you will instantly be able to see what products we are offering at a discounted price store wide. Check this often, I will be changing this regularly!

Coming soon is our aromatherapy Cedar wood oil to our products. Folks Debra and I made up a batch of goat's milk soap along with our sulfate free shampoo and conditioner. I got to tell you that this by far has got to be my most favorite of all the fragrances and essential oils we carry! Well, you might not pay a whole lot of attention to what I just said about my most favorites, because to be honest, I usually find a new favorite every week or so. But, this cedar wood oil is wonderful in our bath products. It smells just like the old cedar chest I remember as a child that my grandmother owned. I'll be adding it soon to the aromatherapy line.

Oh I almost forgot, my western novel will soon be on the site. Before you ask, yes I did write and published a western novel call Barstone. It is about two brothers from South Alabama who after getting out of the confederacy when the War Between the States was over, inherited a large ranch in California and had to fight and claim what was now theirs. The annotation of the novel will be where you can get more of an idea of what this novel is about. This is the last few I have of the first edition and when these are gone that will be it. This first edition I still have means a lot to me, because I had a young girl to draw and design my book cover. Yep, before you ask, there is a picture of me inside and I will be autographing all of them.

I reckon that about winds up what's new & what's coming, so until next we chat, take care and enjoy this wonderful weather!

Many people compare the fragrance of lilac to a sweet rose with a hint of vanilla. The plant loves lots of Sun and has a heavy aroma that is very fragrant and clings in the air.

Some even state that the scent of lilac has a unique smell; it is sweet but not overly sweet and has a trace of citrus. It is fresh smelling and is a nostalgic garden flower.

As I have stated before in other product descriptions, I'm a tree bark or fresh out of the oven fragrance type fellow. But I must say that this version of our lilac is a very pleasant and not overwhelming floral scent. Oh it has a kick to it, but not one that will run you out of the room. I'd even go as far to state that this is about the closest you gonna get to the real flower.

I tried more than one supplier for this fragrance; the others I tried were to much like cheap perfume for my taste, not at all like a real lilac flower. In fact, you might want to be careful when you use this fragrance in our products, it might actually draw a mess of Bee's!

Tart Candle

Tart Candle Bundles!

Hello everyone, I hope all are enjoying this spring weather. We here in North East Tennessee are enjoying the warmer temperatures, but we really do hope it will stop raining one day! LOL

Now for the changes on the site. I have lowered the prices on the Tart Candle Bundles because I was able to obtain the needed ingredients at a lower price by purchasing in bulk. I've also added a new 20 Tart Candle Bundle and top off with a Grab Bag Bundle where you can save even more on the 10 and 20 tart bundles by allowing us to pick and choose your tarts.

We feel it’s a fun way of testing out new fragrances that you might not have ever chosen and the best of it all is that this 10 and 20 Tart Bundle are at the lowest priced on the site.

You can find these at the Tart Candle Bundles category or at

So, need to liven up the home or office with some awesome fragrances? Here's your chance with our new larger 20 Tart Bundle and the lower priced Grab Bag selection.

Last new information about the site is we have added in a category for 1 ounce bottles of pure fragrance oils. Now you can purchase your favorite fragrance and with this 1 ouncer you can sprinkle some oil in your oil or tart burner and enjoy the exploding fragrance immediately.

Soon to come is our new 12 Ounce Ball Container Candle. I'm testing and taking pictures at the present time and will soon be placing these powerful long lasting container candles on the site.

Well folk's that's about all for now, so y'all take care and enjoy the change of weather!
