My Merry Christmas Announcement

Christmas Decorations Christmas is a hands-on art. From the lights we put on the house to the decorations we put on the tree to the great foods we eat in the process, Christmas is a time of doing -- and this is the place we gather to talk, plan and share.

Candles

Here is a tip for candles,Bath and Body or any other brand.When the wicks of the candle have been burned down,but there is still wax left,i put the candle jar on my coffee machine hot plate.Turn coffee machine on so hot plate is hot,let wax melt,then when it has melted completely,put a piece of metal under candle jar.I use an old metal stand, the kind used years ago to keep coffee hot on stove element,sorry i can't recall what they are called.You could bend a metal coat hanger into a star shape.The idea is to keep candle warm, so that the wax stays melted, but not sitting directly on hot plate. The smell still fills the room and you can get a few extra weeks out of candle.Or when wax is melted,discard wax and use the jars for makeup,cotton balls or jewellery,my daughters love the empty jars with lids.

Oh my goodness...I was in the local Bath and Body the other day and got a chance to smell some of their seasonal candles! I have to say I like the 'Hot Buttered Rum", "Frosted Cranberry" and "Winter" scents. I may have to go buy some...

Just got an email saying that the 3-wick candles from B&BW are on sale 2 for $20. Actually I think if you buy 2 or more they're all $10 each, so here's your chance to stock up.
