Well look what came in the mail today..I ordered these wonderful candle tarts from Early Homestead Primitives and when Tucky and I got back from our walk I found these in the mailbox...the box smelled really good too..she threw in another sample one it is apple something clove...
I just had to try out the sweet potato pie one..and how appropriate in my star candle warmer...I can't wait for it to melt..
I put the rest of them in a little colander on the counter..they look so cute displayed in there and I can smell em as I walk by...
