More Pretty Dollar Tree Candles!

Guys!  How cute are these candles?!

This is yet another super fun Dollar Tree find!  These are actual candles with wicks, not battery operated, and they smell lovely!  They each have the layered colors and a gorgeous gold lettered saying on the front.

In order from left to right they read:

  • Hello Gorgeous
  • Follow Your Dreams
  • Free Spirit
  • You Are My Sunshine

These would be so cute decorating a teen or tween’s bedroom!  Or a dorm room, or any room that needs a little pop of color and a pretty little saying to make you smile.  I grabbed one of each, they were just too cute to resist!

I am currently upgrading my girls room, and I think these would be lovely as little accent pieces!

Dollar Tree Ocean Theme Candles

candles2

Have you seen these super cute LED candles at your local Dollar Tree this summer?  I absolutely fell in love with them when I saw them on the shelf!

The candles are votive sized, and have sand and pretty little shells in the bottom.  The blue “water” is a gel material.  Some of the candles even have tiny little starfish in them, so cute!

These are similar to other LED votives that Dollar Tree sells, with a toggle switch on the bottom and a flickering candle like light when turned on.

I think they are just perfect for summer decorating, and would be adorable in a beach themed bathroom year round.

Grab them fast if you like them, fall merchandise is already rolling out in the stores!

Happy decorating, friends!

I won a giveaway!

I was completely surprised and totally stoked when a YouTuber I follow hosted a giveaway and announced my name as one of the winners!

*happy dance* 

I am a new YouTube addict, only recently watching it for more than just Toby Turner silliness or cute kitty videos.  When I realized that it was also filled with crafty goodness, I started following lots of creative people who I felt connected to in some way.

One of the very first YouTube hosts that pulled me in was Josie, over at Life at 50 and Beyond.   She is first and foremost, completely lovely.  She comes across as very sweet and kind, and just listening to her chat is like sitting with an old friend over coffee.  What got me hooked on her videos, is her super cute designs created on a budget!  A lady after my own heart!

Many of her tutorials gather supplies from Dollar Tree, another new obsession of mine, but I digress.  She creates adorable, unique home decor and gifts using supplies that anyone can afford and that look like a million bucks!  It doesn’t hurt that she also seems to be obsessed with my favorite color, teal.  Hee hee!  Match made in heaven, I tell ya!

Anyway, here is a photo of the super generous prize package that she sent me!

How cool is that?!  A beautiful notebook, glittery washi tapes, clothespin clips, pretty paper tags, antique key charms, and a gorgeous Coach wristlet!  I feel like I won the lottery!  🙂

I already have lots of plans for my goodies, and I will forever think of my sweet online friend, Josie, when I use these fun treasures!

Old Williamsburgh Candle from Dollar Tree: Caution!

In a recent trip to one of our local Dollar Tree stores, I came across a new candle that I had not seen there before.  It was shaped like the top portion of a wine glass, had a cork topper, and an intriguing scent, “Chardonnay Spritzer”.  I didn’t see any other varieties, but fell in love with the lovely aroma, so I went ahead and purchased one.

I set it near my desk when we got home, and then got to work on a crochet project.  Not long after I sat down, I suddenly heard the sound of something falling.  I looked around and couldn’t see the source, so I kept working.

Soon later, I heard the sound again, only this time, I saw what was making the noise.  The newly purchased candle was falling apart!  Shards of glass were breaking free and falling off.  Nothing had touched this candle in any way, it just started self destructing, without even being lit!

I immediately decided I wouldn’t dream of taking the chance of burning this candle, no matter how lovely the scent.  I have no clue what caused this candle to break like this, but would use extreme caution if purchasing any.

The next time I went to the Dollar Tree, they still had some left, some of which were broken just like mine did.  Little shards of glass, littering the shelf.  I did not risk buying anymore.

I am unfamiliar with this candle company, and have never purchased any candles from them before.  The scent of this particular candle is amazing, it really drew me in.  It really does smell just like a chardonnay spritzer, tangy and refreshing.  What a bummer that the vessel was such a dud!

Have you ever heard of this candle company?  Has anyone else had this experience with the glass breaking?  I’m curious to know if this was a fluke, or maybe even damaged product that mistakenly got sent out for sale.
