More Rhode Montijo

Just amazing.

Just wow.
Like wow.

More works here.

Halloween Candles

So I ordered some Anise wax cubes and Clove wax cubes from a shop on, melted them down with an orange dye cube, and poured them into three small candle tins.
The scent is very earthy and smoky, not quite anise and not quite clove.  We haven't lit them yet, but I have high hopes they'll throw a nice strong scent.

Notice the way the wax caved in around the wicks.  A candle-maker I'm not.  But the house smells really nice.

Kringle Halloween Candles

Fright Night
Fiendishly delightful Citrus notes swirl magically with rare wood accords.

Witches' Cauldron
Primary notes of Cloves and Cedar dance mysteriously with hints of Incense, Citrus and other exotics. Utterly bewitching.

Wolf's Bane
While folklore suggests this unassuming yellow woodland flower might repel werewolves, we're sure its delightful floral fragrance will have you happily howling at the moon!

Meet Some Ghost Hunters

Jason and Samantha Hawes of Ghost Hunters will be at our Yankee Candle Village Store in South Deerfield, MA this Saturday, August 2nd from 9am to 1pm! The $20 entry fee will include a meet and greet and photo opportunity, plus exclusive Ghost Hunters merchandise will be available to purchase. This is their only New England appearance for the rest of this year, so don’t miss out! 

Twenty clams to enter the event to meet these two and to have the opportunity to purchase Ghost Hunters merchandise.  I'm starting to hate this company.  Though if they release a scent that smells like a toasty Jack O'Lantern, I'll forgive them.

Yankee Halloween "Party"

This Saturday, the annual [disappointing] event at all Yankee Candle stores - the Halloween 2014 Preview Party. 

Hopefully they have some cool Halloween scents besides the usual Candy Corn and Witches' Brew.

Fury Road


I got too close after disturbing their gourd home.  One got me on the hand as I snapped this [blurry] photo.  Nice little welt forming now.  Feels like concentrated sunburn.  I suspect I'll be dead by morning.

The Medieval Light Company

It's official:  I'd be dangerous with Howard Hughes Wealth.  And our house would be a Grey Gardens house.
