New WILDFLOWER candle, exclusively for Rachel Ashwell

We are thrilled to announce our newest collaboration with one of our favorites, Rachel Ashwell of Shabby Chic Couture. Isn’t it pretty?

To celebrate the opening of Rachel’s newest venture, The Prairie Bed & Breakfast in Texas, we joined forces on this spectacular co-branded candle and we just know you’ll love the final product! Our new candle, WILDFLOWER, is inspired by the Texas wildflowers that grow on the prairie and which we’ve blended especially for the occasion. Can’t get to Texas, but want a candle of your very own? Give The Prairie store a call at 979-936-6907!

Rachel Ashwell is a self-made business woman who founded the iconic brand known as Shabby Chic in 1989 when, as a single mother of two young children, she looked to open a small shop where she could sell ‘pretty things’ without spending much time or distance away from her children and opened her first store on trendy Montana Avenue in Santa Monica, California.

Her vision and love of vintage style and flea-market has always struck a cord and inspired our like-minded aesthetic here at Linnea’s Lights. Rachel will release her seventh book titled Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic Inspiration and Beautiful Spaces published by Cico books in October 2011, and we can’t wait to get our hands on a copy!

For reservations: The Prairie by Rachel Aswhell, 5808 Wagner Road Round Top, TX 78954, 1-979-836-4975

When we got our hands on the new People Country October issue, we were positively glowing by the time we spotted our Cashmere candle listed as one of Martina McBride‘s must-haves. Martina is one of our favorites around the office, and having her music on while we work on new blends certainly never hurts in the inspiration department!

We were so excited, we just had to share the news with all of you and hope you’ll check out the new issue of People Country today! And in the meantime, if you want your home to smell like a country crooner’s,  make sure to pick up a Cashmere candle of your own, right here at AshBlue.
