A week or so ago I shared with you a Christmas slide show and told ya I'd be tellin' you a lil' bit 'bout some of the artists. Well, today I'm gonna share two with you. One is a sweet local friend who makes the most incredible candles and tarts and another is "another Cathy" who makes OH-SO-CUTE pincushions. I've been blessed over the years to come into contact with many talented people and since I've been bloggin' - well, everyday is blessed with a new acquaintance. There is sooooooo much talent out there. And I get great joy "tootin' the horn" of my talented friends!!!
First Up.... Sweet Ms. Linda of Kindlelight Blessings Candles. Candle making is in her blood - she thinks about it constantly - always trying to come up with new ideas and it shows. Best thing about her - she's as beautiful as her candles.
Now, are these not the cutest tarts you have ever seen? Sugar plums, blueberry muffins, strawberries in the snow - and there are so many more. Hazelnut Delight is my personal favorite - but then again it is hard to choose - fudgy coconut, candy cane, pumpkin praline - oh my - I could go on and on.
This is one of her beautiful cake candles - each piece hand made - every lil' pineapple chunk, pretty red strawberries all with yummy drizzle over them. Well this candle deserves to go on a cake stand for everybody to admire.
This is a picture of her loaf candles - and she also has jars and soooo much more. If you are a "picky" candle buyer - I promise these will meet your expectations!!! I know that she would appreciate your visit - it would simply tickle her to death.
Now for my new friend that I met over at Maryjane's Farm - the "other Cathy" - Cathy Jean to be exact. Do you have a special friend or maybe a mom or grandmother that simply loves to sew? Well, these are jus' the cutest lil' pincushions ever. I love them!! They have such a nice weight to them - they are made of crushed walnut shells I believe. Cathy puts fabrics together so well and tops them with pretty lil' buttons. The craftsmanship is perfect. I gifted my sweet Mamaw one of these and she adores it. You'll have to browse her selection - it's so hard to choose which one.
Drop by Aunt Daisy's Cottage and tell her Cathy sent you.
Now you know these are my favorites - 'cause they are red and POLKA DOTTED!!!
Wouldn't one be so cute tied on a Christmas package or tucked in a stocking!
I hope you enjoyed learning about my friends. And thank you for visiting them - they don't know I'm doing this - so I hope they are prepared - hehe.
I'm grateful for their talent and for allowing me to have their lil' creations in my shop.
Many blessings to you all for a splendid weekend!!
