The Poor Woman’s Fireplace; Candles that make you feel warm and cozy!!


The weather is changing (kind of), daylight savings time is happening this Sunday, and Starbucks has all of their special holiday drinks ready to order.  It took me a while to mourn the end of summer, but I have to be honest and say that fall has not been too bad.  The weather has been mild, and every once in a while we will still get an 80 degree day!  While the weather has been considerably warm, fall is still my favorite time to purchase and burn tons of candles.  I do not own a fire pit in my back yard ( maybe some day) and I also do not have a fire place.  What I do have, are tons of great warm smelling candles with a wooden wick!  The cackling sound they make while burning is super soothing.  They really are like having a fireplace on a budget!
