Frugal Fridays: A Heavenly Scented Home
Nick with my giant, delicious smelling box of tarts. Note: he wasn't helping me, he was actually trying to get the bubble wrap out so he and Ben could stomp on it.
Giant wickless candles. They smell divine. I wish I had a "scratch and sniff" feature for you!
I love all of these. Not s single dud in the bunch :)
I have raved about Candles from the Keeping Room before. The last time I ordered from eBay's leading candle guru was before Christmas. I gave some of Carol's tarts to friends and family and they all loved their scented delights.
I have been having issues with my allergies and stopped burning anything other than pure beeswax tarts for the last few months. In fact, the only scent I have been using regularly comes from a bowl of simmering vanilla beans, orange peels, and cinnamon sticks. My poor tart burners haven't seen any use lately.
Last week, though, I found some tarts from Carol while cleaning out a basket. I tried one again and had no issues.
I burned it three times (scent as "Keeping Room") before it faded and decided to place an order again.
Here is what I ordered:
Chunky Votive Candles (they come in glass holders, too, for $3.25 ea.):
Aloha Pineapple & Orange Juice
Mocha Cafe & Sweet Cupcake
Hot Orange Danish & Sweet Cupcake
Tart 6 Packs ($4.75 for 6 good-sized tarts):
Enlgish Lemon Curd
Chunky Tarts (THREE ounces each for only $2)
Blackberry Jam Butter Cookies & Whipped Cream blend
Mac Apple & Creme Brulee Blend
4 ounce cuttable tart roll (only $2.95--and for FOUR ounces. WOW!):
Caramelized Apple Praline
Tart Sampler (Bakery assortment, $4.95 for 7)
7 assorted bakery-inspired tarts
I just ordered Wednesday and they arrived today via UPS. I am amazed at the size of my order. Carol's prices are quite afforadble. When you consider that you can burn her tarts for 2-3 days each, they really are an incredible value.
I'd like to tell you a bit about the assortment/sampler as well as the scent called Pilgrim's Pie.
Carol describes her Pilgrim's Pie scent as a "
The scent throw in every single I have purchased from Carol has been amazing! I cannot wait to try one this afternoon after we return from running errands. My only problem--Which scent to burn first?
Update: I am currently burning Coffee Cake & Spice. It is absolutely wonderful. As always, a fabulous transaction start to sweet-smelling finish.
