Even More Candle to Love

Cashmere 3 wick -final 1

When we launched our new (and initially limited-edition) holiday triple-wick candles at the end of 2013, they were our biggest candles yet and we knew you’d like them. It quickly became clear, however, that you LOVE them… and we heard you! We are so thrilled to announce the expansion of our large, 3-wick candles with a collection growing even larger for Spring.

The first of our newest 18-ounce candles is the elegant Cashmere candle. With winter holding on a bit longer and Spring on the horizon, nothing warms you up like cashmere. Now you can wrap yourself in this inspired and sophisticated herbal scent. Infused with the warming scent of patchouli, Persian limes and a touch of vanilla, this scent will brighten up any room. Now with an impressive burn time of about 90 hours!

Available for purchase at our California partner, A Beautiful Mess. The triple-wick candles will be up online soon or call in to reserve yours now (818.874.9092).

Stay tuned for our next big candle release!

It’s so nice hearing from friend’s on the road and I just had to share this nice shot captured by a member of the Linnea’s Lights family. Chrissy was in Naples, Florida and snapped this photo of our candles at Jett Thompson Antiques. What a beautiful shop and of course we love the display! How fun to see our candles (and new, larger triple wicks) out in the wild.

Where have you spotted Linnea’s Lights candles lately?

NEW Spring Candle: Eucalyptus

hr-eucalyptus-single

We are proud to share our newly launched Eucalyptus candle with you, fresh from the studio to join our Spring lineup!

Cool eucalyptus warmed with pacific woods & fresh air. Breathe easier with the fortifying scent of eucalyptus. Native to Australia, the plant was first introduced to the Americas during the California Gold Rush of 1849. Infused with the essence of pacific woods, this candle captures the feel of a fresh walk in the great outdoors. Tranquil.

Combining natural soy wax, lead-free cotton wicks, and pure scents, Linnea’s Lights clean-burning candles are carefully hand-poured in small batches.

- Soy wax, fragrance oil, cotton wick, glass
- Handmade in the USA

Available for purchase, here.

Sprung for Spring

I think we can all agree it’s been one long winter and I’ve been looking for signs of Spring wherever I go. I can JUST begin to make out the tips of a few green buds beginning to peek out in the garden here and I’m so looking forward to seeing some colorful blooms.

In the meantime, I came across these cheerful rainbow cakes by the talented Flour Shop and thought it was just the pop of color I needed today! Don’t they cheer you right up?

I’m also excited to see our new Spring/Summer 2014 collection begin to hit shops. Geranium, Eucalyptus and Persian Lime are all available now! Such lovely pick-me-ups, I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do.

Happy Spring!

Gwyneth’s Scrapbook: All That Inspires

Microsoft Word - Document2

As a complete fan of all things Gwyneth, I’ve been following her lifestyle newsletter and site GOOP from day one. Have you seen it? I find it quite enjoyable and often inspiring. Last week I received the loveliest email from my friends at White’s Mercantile, a beautiful shop in Tennessee, letting me know that their holiday goodie bag to Ms. Paltrow had made it into her GOOP Scrapbook! I was so thrilled for them and imagine my surprise when I saw a Linnea’s Lights Belgian Linen candle peeking out from the bundle!

Use it well GP, and thank you so much White’s Mercantile! Much love to you all. Loved the image below of Diane von Furstenberg, and of course, there’s our sweet candle! Find the full scrapbook here: http://www.goop.com/journal/see/274/scrapbook

This is our local account and a shop we absolutely love here in Indiana, Haus Love. I wanted to share and show some photos of our Linnea’s Lights candles in their gorgeous boutique. Heidi Woodman, the owner, has fabulous style, don’t you think?

The Haus Love team has just returned from some faraway travels and I can’t wait to check out the amazing new inventory sure to be coming in from all over the world. I always come away from my visits inspired to redecorate at home!

Happy Valentine’s Day from Linnea’s Lights

linnea_Lights

Wishing you all a very happy Valentine’s Day from all of us here at Linnea’s Lights. The wonderfully inspiring site Domaine Home had a few timely entertaining ideas from event designer, Preston Bailey which I thought I’d share with you here.

My favorite of course is his candle tip: Nothing says romance like candle light. Here is a simple trick: buy votives, turn off all your lights, and have a romantic candle-lit dinner. The soft glow of the candles will dazzle you.

And if we may make a recommendation, why not try it by combining two of Valentine’s most signature details in one with our romantic floral Peony candle!

Linnea’s Lights at The GRAMMY Awards’ MusiCares Event

Document7

I was so thrilled to be a part of this year’s MusiCares Person of the Year event, helping to raise money for a wonderful and inspiring cause. This year’s honoree was the incredibly talented, Carole King.

MusiCares provides a safety net of critical assistance for music people in times of need. Meant for musicians to have a place to turn in times of financial, personal, or medical crisis, its primary purpose is to focus the resources and attention of the music industry on human service issues which directly impact the health and welfare of the music community. The foundation’s programs include emergency financial assistance, addiction recovery, outreach and leadership activities, and senior housing.

What a wonderful event to have been a part of!

Inspiration: What I’m Loving & Appreciating Right Now

I wanted to share some of my current sources of inspiration with you. How amazing is Angela Ahrendts? So proud that she hails from our home of Indiana and excited to see all that’s ahead for her at Apple. I’m really enjoying this Fast Company article, have you read it?

And how I love AFAR magazine. They’ve just undergone a bit of a design overhaul with a talented new creative director, Elizabeth Spiridakis Olson, formerly of another favorite read, Bon Appétit. AFAR has my heart because truly, all of us are vagabonds… embrace it….

Last but not least, I’ve been drooling over Devour Downtown here in Indiana and can’t wait to try a few more of these local restaurants this weekend: http://www.devourdowntown.org/2014_menus/

What’s inspiring you right now?
