A Trip Down Memory Lane-Part II

I was looking for some Christmas graphics on my 'puter when I stumbled across an old folder. I completely forgot that I used to make candles and I mean all kinds of candles! The picture quality is horrible (I was just starting out, so cut me a break:D), but the candles are so cute. I still do a few of these around the holidays for friends and co-workers, but for the most part, I've hung up my chandler gloves. Here a few pics:

Apple pies and tarts

A La Mode Pies

Fruit Bowls

Candy Jars

Cinnamon Roll Votives


Misc. Jar Candles

Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Tarts

Cola and Strawberry Lemonade Gel Candles

Bananaberry and Strawberry Shortcakes

Great looking candles. Why did you stop making them? Just nosy.

your candles look really real, i had to look twice at the strawberry and chocolate !!

Your candles are so cute! If you ever decided to start making them again, I think that they would fit in really well with your shop lines/themes.

Dear Patrice, I remember the days when candles were all the rage. I think that you have a talent for making these things look so real!! I am so grateful for all of my blogging friends. Thank you and blessings, Catherine xo

Thanks everyone! These candles are literally a labor of love-only I hate hard work:)

I think if it didn't take forever to make these (I did EVERYTHING) by hand-including making the fruit pieces (using molds of course), I would probably still do them "part/full-time".

OMG - those candles are Marvelous!

Amy Warden said...

They're beautiful, Patrice! I can't believe you made all the pieces by hand!! We had a vendor at the farmer's market who made pie candles, and she told me that she bought all the embeds.

They are lovely candles!
I just saw your post on twitter, so here I am! I ♥ed your shop, too!

Thanks Amy! It would literally take me hours to make one candle, so I got smart (duh) and just made all the wax pieces in bulk and used as needed...

Hi Splendor! Thanks for stopping by, and I'm returning the favor:)
