LIGHT MY FIRE

LIGHT MY FIRE

We love a good candle, honey. Candles are there for us, time and time again, like our most reliable friend. Need to add ambiance to a room? Candle. In search of a chic hostess gift? Candle. Power outage? Candle. Everything and everyone looks better in candlelight. The gentle, flickering light adds a romantic and dreamy mood to any room or event. Our sense of smell is so strongly linked to memory, which is why a great candle can transport us to our college semester in Paris, baking with Nana or a favorite vacation destination.

Our workshop started with a few nibbles and bevvies,...

Season of Giving

Season of Giving

In this season of giving, we like to remind ourselves about giving gifts beyond our loved ones. We're proud supporters of NeighborLink, a fantastic local organization that connects people in need with neighbors who can help by giving time, talent and/or treasure. They believe "small things change neighborhoods" and we couldn't agree more! The organization spreads their messages of neighborly love in a variety of ways, including a very active running and cycling team, participating in area events and hosting their own, as well as selling branded merch - which is where we come in.  NeighborLink currently has 262 open projects, and...
