Canning and Candles

29 Aug

I started my morning canning tomatoes.  It began with salsa.

It ended with 7 1/2 pints of tomatoes, 8 1/2 pints of salsa, and 12 pints and 3 quarts of juice.

This afternoon, I tried another new fragrance for candles.  This one is called harvest moon.  I think it smells like those red hot candies, the spicy cinnamon.

By the end of the evening, I had two chunk candles (one is still cooling in the mold), six votives, two containers with soy candles, and three wax melts.

I keep making chunk candles because everyone seems to like them.  These are the lavendar ones and the new harvest moon in front.  The back is Kentish rain and two vanilla oak.

I don’t think I had shared them before.  I’m still contemplating doing a couple more soy container candles this evening, but I might just go sit on the couch.
