Mimosa… not just a drink

We were thrilled about yesterday’s  NylonMag.com feature on our Mimosa candle. They said it perfectly when they said ~

“Mimosas make cameos at weekend brunches and lazy days lounging in the park, but what about your bedside table?”

We agree our Mimosa candle is perfection for your bedside table or to set the mood for a weekend brunch.

White Coral

The precious and endangered white coral of the Maldives was the inspiration for this scent.  A seductive oasis of untouched beauty, this candle adds the enchantment of the “far away” to any space. When lit, cardamon’s resinous aroma entwines with the bright citrus of neroli, uplifting mandarin and soft woods. This bewitching scent creates a captivating and calming hideaway.

Edible Indy spotlights Linnea’s Lights

I was honored when one of my favorite local magazines asked to include Linnea’s Lights in Edible Indy’s latest issue (on newsstands now). The sweet article titled “The Butcher, The Baker, The Candlestick Maker” puts an Indianapolis spin on the classic nursery rhyme, enlisting a longtime butcher, a German bread baker and, yours truly as the candle maker. Here, we share our thoughts on our crafts, memorable summer meals and favorite spots to dine out. Read the full story and make sure to pick up a copy for yourself!

Ocean

Lynn and I have shared so many good times on our visits to both the Atlantic and Pacific oceans, enjoying fond memories of both coasts. Who could forget the taste of Maine lobster fresh from the ocean or those breathtaking views we glimpsed from the cliffs of HWY 1? Always in motion, the salt water of the ocean is a proven antiseptic and has been used to cleanse and purify for as long as man has existed. This fresh, pure scent inspires the feeling of floating and weightlessness.

Our Ocean candle is available from Juxtaposition Home & Studio.
