Friend's Candle Shed...a proud Mommy...

TA DA... my daughter Pipers' shop...yup...you might say I was proud...come on inside and play with us...you might wanna come back often...

...the entrance to the 'candle garden'...how cute is this...I have to say that the apple doesn't fall far from the tree...right... Piper's shop is just adorable and folks come from all over the place to see it and to experience the candles...all soy, they are wonderful to burn...



I know, I know...but it's not that far away...time to plan ahead and have Piper fill these sweet snowman jars with your favorite fragrance of choice...

...this is just the cutest one ever...'Birdie Cafe'...TWEET!!! Piper has picked up on her Mommas' mission to buy and sell only American made products, made by local artisans. I think people are sick of the shabby, cheap Chinese made products...not only that, but TOXIC!!!

...the time and creativity Piper and Rick are putting into the production of these lil' gems, is unbelievable, but just like anything else that's made at home, you can't apply the hours spent to the final price...it just don't work that way...

...margaritas and a Tiki bar for birds...how cute is that...

...my antiques figure into all of this stuff too, you just gotta have cool old stuff to display on...right!...

...it's the berries...strawberry, blackberry...and the Muscatine Melons...we're famous for that you know...all yummy scents that are to die for...

...bring in your own clean jars to be refilled...recycling, right...you can also pick up Swirly Girl Pies at the shed...

...the refill list, constantly changing with new scents and not so popular ones out the door...

...pillars and votives in wonderful colors and scents...and potpourri...

...more adorable birdhouses, lined on a fence...

...gourds and punkins call into season...FALL...everyone's favorite time of year...come and play at 'The Shed'...
MADE IN THE USA...

Your daughter's store is just wonderful. Such imaginative displays of all things vintage. Love all the bird houses! Hope things go well for all of you this winter.

Piper is a chip off the old block. I hope the sales stay up this winter too. I went to my 1st auction yesterday and things went pretty cheap.So it's a good time to buy.

Monkey Feet? Is there an actual candle scent called "Monkey Feet?"

I wonder what it smells like?

I confess that I kind of like the way our dog's feet smell. But I don't think I'd want a candle like that.

Love the displays! I never go for the minimalist look - the more the merrier! All best wishes for much success.

O Sharon, your daughter's place is alive with enchantment! I see a little of your aura wandering round, tweaking displays here and there! But I also see a distinct Piper identity in those incredible small building structures! They look like so much fun and very creative signs on them!
