This season, I have spent a decent amount of time in their shop looking for candles that would be great for Fall and picking up some to start us off for winter too. Yesterday, they were having a wonderful sale of fifty percent off all regular price candles. I spent quite a while searching for one that I was in love with and by the time we left I think the olfactory bulbs in my nose were full because every candle had started to smell the same, haha. This is the one I decided on... Pumpkin Cream Pie. Mmmm.
I thought it was a delicious scent and so perfect to burn for the next few weeks and the rest of the season.
If you have been to a Yankee Candle, you know that the selection can be overwhelming... but in the best of ways. The holiday and seasonal candles spanned practically an entire wall... this section had the most wonderful scents of which I hope I can come back for a couple next month. Everything from Mountain Berries, Gingerbread, Cherries on Snow (amazing!), Fresh Balsam Wreath and Winter Wonderland, to Peppermint Bark, Cranberry Peppermint, Eggnog, Crisp Apple Strudel, Sparkling Cinnamon, and Sparkling Snow. Those candles that smell like a fresh fallen snow and the way the air smells when it's snowing are just heavenly.
Something exciting about our trip there, also, was that we got a free catalogue with scented pages... I'm sure I looked silly on the way home smelling and rubbing the pages for the scents. It is so neat to have samples through the pages, and I believe my favorite is the Red Apple Wreath candle- it is so fresh.
We also made a quick trip to the craft store, where things got more exciting! I'm simple in the fact that simple things delight me...
Like looking at the calendars there. Purchasing calendars for the new year always brings me cheer! This is one of the prettiest calendars I've seen this year, the country scenes were so beautifully painted. I would love to be sitting by that beautiful tree and brook. And what looks like blue-bells among the grass reminds me of the flowers we see in Spring here. What a peaceful place.
Although I did not take any home with me, I am definitely keeping this one in mind.
Maybe because writing and sending, as well as receiving, personal letters and cards is something I love, I enjoy browsing through the greeting cards just for fun. I also like to get an idea of what cards to get for family in December (and also creative gift ideas).
These were in the anniversary cards and although different, I thought they were both sweet and made me smile.
The really exciting thing that was a surprise to me was when walked in the door and saw that all of the Fall home decorations were marked down to eighty percent off! I thought that they would be doing this later around the week after thanksgiving, but I was so glad we came because it was already picked through. I was amazed at the clearance, though, and picked out something beautiful- a Fall garland for our fireplace. I think it is lovely and I will share a photo of it in my upcoming post sharing our seasonal decorations :)
The other thing I ended up buying was this pretty, glossy cranberry colored plate with a pretty design on the edges. I have some thoughts on what we can do with this for a neat decoration for winter!
Simple joys and excitements and a day with family made for a blessed Friday.
Have you bought any seasonal items recently -decorations or candles- or something you are excited about??
Hope you had a lovely Friday yesterday also.
Thankyou for reading.
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!!
