I’m not Oprah, but I have my favorite things too.
In fact, today’s Supercool Stuff Saturday.
Here it is (drum roll, please):
Is that the most beautiful thing in the world, or what?
Okay, maybe it’s not to you, but, if you had the Scent-er-net, you’d agree.
It’s not just any candle. It’s a Candle-Lite candle. Click on the hyperlink and order a thousand right away!
A wonderfully kind lady I work with gave this to me for my most recent birthday. Not knowing exactly the kind of jewel I had, I smiled and thanked her for not buying me one that smelled like gardenias.
Gardenias make my head hurt.
Right between my eyes.
And they remind me of old ladies.
Which I didn’t want to associate with my most recent birthday.
That was then.
This is now.
I call the two eras BF (Before the candle was Fired up) and AF (After the candle was Fired up) because, since firing it up today, my life has changed.
Never again will I be able to settle for a grocery store candle.
Today, shortly after firing up my cotton version of the best candles in the world, I started a load of laundry. It is Saturday, after all. A few minutes into the wash cycle, I thought to myself, “Gosh, my laundry smells exceptionally good today.” Duh, the clothes weren’t even in the dryer yet.
As I was walking past the table where I had put the candle, it hit me.
That’s important in life: the ability to laugh at one’s own stupidity. Try it sometime. It’s alot less pressure than trying to hide it.
Buy the candles.
Update: 2/28/10 – I woke up this morning, walked into the kitchen, where I have the candle, which has been blown out since about 8pm last night, and smelled a faint, but glorious cotton scent. Unbelievable! The candle still scents the room 10 hours after it’s been blown out.
Go buy a thousand.
