OK, I have to say I might have outdid myself finding the best floral fragrance ever with my all-natural palm wax candles. Jasmine. I came across it by accident, but now feel like it was a message from the universe: Auntie B, you need to share jasmine with the rest of the world.

Not only is the fragrance amazing, the flower/plant (I’m not a horticulturalist) is so diverse. Check out what Wikipedia has to say about it…

Jasmine can be either deciduous (leaves falling in autumn) or evergreen (green all year round), and can be erect, spreading, or climbing shrubs and vines. Their leaves are born, opposite or alternate. They can be simple, trifoliate, or pinnate. The flowers are typically around 2.5 cm (0.98 in) in diameter. They are white or yellow in color, although in rare instances they can be slightly reddish. The flowers are borne in cymose clusters with a minimum of three flowers, though they can also be solitary on the ends of branchlets. Each flower has about four to nine petals, two locules, and one to four ovules. They have two stamens with very short filaments. The bracts are linear or ovate. The calyx is bell-shaped. They are usually very fragrant.  ~ Wikipedia

Did you read that last sentence?  “They are usually very fragrant.”  Yes, yes they are.  And I’ve got that fragrance captured in this lovely set of four votive candles for your enjoyment.

 

If you’ve experienced a prolonged winter in your area you’ll love this breath of springtime in your home.  If not, well, you’ll still enjoy the fresh fragrance of jasmine.  It’s perfect for any home, in any climate, in any season, anywhere in the world.

The Midwest is being pummeled with tons of snow and high winds of late.  You’d think it was wintertime instead of springtime, or dare I say…Christmastime?

The snowfall has harkened me back to the snowy, cozy days of Christmas.  Perhaps Ebenezer Scrooge’s quote “I shall honor Christmas in my heart and try to keep it all the year” is ringing forth in my ears, as we’re over four months into the new year and I’m filled with the Christmas spirit due to the snowy surroundings.

What better light to bring to a cold winter night than a flickering candle scented with peppermint?

You may not be living through the dreadful springtime blizzard that is rushing through my neck of the woods, but peppermint is so much more than a scent of Christmas, candy canes and winter.  The aroma of peppermint has been known to have memory- and alertness-enhancing properties.

Oh, I can’t guarantee alertness and acute memory with the burning of this candle, but it is certainly refreshing and rejuvenating.  No matter what the season, a peppermint-scented candle will bring a lively and enjoyable fragrance to your home.

Peppermint Pillar Candle

The energizing aroma of peppermint and the cheery color of pink all in one fabulous candle! Remember, candles make a great hostess or housewarming gift ~ if you can resist keeping it for yourself! I hand-pour all of my candles in small batches to ensure each one is created to give you hours of candle-burning enjoyment. I use only the best quality paraffin wax and all cotton wicks to provide the cleanest burn possible. Please remember to trim the wick to ¼ inch (.63 cm) before burning. If the flame becomes too large or if smoking occurs extinguish the candle, trim the wick and relight, being careful of the hot wax and wick. Dimensions: 3” (7.62 cm) diameter X 3” (7.62 cm) height Shrink wrapped for maximum fragrance retention.

All right, I realize the Buy It Friday post is a little late, but there’s a good reason for that.  I was busy on Friday and was watching Batman (the series) on Saturday.

The Batman episode I saw was titled That Darn Catwoman.  I’m not even kidding.  Robin was seduced and drugged by Pussycat (Leslie Gore) and Catwoman (Julie Newmar) proposed to Batman before jumping into the river/ocean to her apparent death.  That darn Catwoman, indeed.

I fancy the old Batman series well over the newer Batman movies because they’re schmaltzy and more true to the old comics.

You can bring all the glory of Batman to your next party with Auntie B’s drink charms.

Your guests can choose a charm for their drink (to be fit on a mug or stemware) or you can assign characters to them according to your personal feelings.  Will your guest be charmed as a villain or hero?

Batman, Robin, and Catwoman. Purrrrfect.

Joker, Penguin, and Riddler – the evil trifecta.

So much kitsch and retro charm!  Invite your guests into the Bat Cave for some Bat Libations with these utterly nostalgic drink charms.

If you don’t know who Christopher Walken is, you haven’t been paying attention.  As one of my favorite actors he’s taken parts involving dancing, comedy, and my favorite, the resident psycho.

 

One thing I imagine Christopher to embrace is a sense of humor, which is why I created these magnets.  A play on words or a pun (I can never remember the difference of the two), Chris is Walken on all sorts of things with these magnets.

 

 

I sell them individually in my Etsy shop, and now they’re also available as a set of seven for a discounted price, in the shop and here on this page.  If you’re a Walken fan, or know one, these magnets are just right.

 

 

Christopher Walken, you’re my hero and most definitely my inspiration.

 

The Walken Series ~ Magnets

Christopher Walken has been know to play some of the most psychotic and/or intense characters in movie history, which makes these magnets so great. This set is a collection of all the Walken magnets available in this shop (available separately), and by buying all seven you save over $20! Great gift for the Christopher Walken fan or anyone who loves a good pun. Laminated images will ensure easy cleaning (damp cloth). Thickest magnet available, approximately 1/16” (.67 mm), making the cling of the image as strong as the message it sends.

Decades ago I’d played with Barbie dolls, not unlike any other girl of my generation.  Between me and Charlotte we had (at least) two Barbies, a Skipper, and a Francie.  Barbie was brunette, Francie was blonde with a flip hairdo, and Skipper was Barbie’s younger sister, a teen doll.  There were Barbies at Grandma’s house too, a red-haired Barbie (probably one of the originals) and also Midge, Barbie’s best friend.  We had no Ken dolls because, well, he was a boy and boys were icky to us.

The Barbie(s) of my era didn’t cause me to think I was less than perfect and didn’t project a desired body image upon me.  Barbie, Midge, Skipper, and Francie were dolls to play with.  They had no influence on my self-esteem.  Barbie (and her cohorts) was beautiful and glamorous and that was that.  I never once thought I should have a figure like Barbie, nor her luxurious hair and sky-blue eyes.  I guess back then kids knew toys were toys and not social statements.

 

Barbie has evolved over the decades, as has her doting boyfriend Ken.  (Or are they married by now?  I haven’t kept track.)  I have a soft spot for the originals and those of my day.

 

Barbie & Ken Bottle Cap Magnets

These magnets, made with real bottle caps, will cling heartily on your refrigerator, filing cabinet, locker, any metal object. The images are framed by the scallops of plain bottle caps, but are anything but ordinary. Wipe clean with a damp cloth. All 6 magnets come in a handy dandy tin for gift giving or to store your nuts and bolts or what-have-you when the magnets are up on your fridge. Dimensions of each magnet: approximately 1 1/4″ (3.175 cm) diameter Dimension of storage tin: approximately 4” (10.16 cm) diameter Price includes shipping within the U.S. only. If you're outside the U.S. and would like to purchase, please contact me at auntiebswax4u@yahoo.com and I'll provide an adjusted price.

It’s February, and for people like me in the midwest portions of the United States we’re ready for some springtime.  It won’t be long.  As much as I love the solace of winter, about now I long for the fragrant coming of spring.

To get myself in the mood for certain occasions and seasons I like to burn candles.  Yep, I’ve got a lot of them at my disposal, because well, I put the “wax” in Auntie B’s Wax.

I never sell anything I don’t like, but one of my favorite candle fragrances is Freesia.  It is so springtime.

These votives have a nice lavender color and are so freshly scented you’ll think you have a bouquet of flowers in the room.

You can have a set of four votive candles that will brighten up those gloomy winter blahs with their wonderfully sweet floral fragrance.  Just click on the link below and springtime is all yours.

Freesia ~ Four Palm Wax Votives

Votive candles are a great alternative to bigger pillar candles. One votive in a small room or a few scattered around a larger room will refresh with wonderful aroma and will also add ambiance. When you place these votives in a suitable container they can last from 12-18 hours. Palm wax makes a fantastic candle for so many reasons. It is eco-friendly ~ refined from the fruit of the oil palm tree ~ natural, biodegradable, and sustainable. It is naturally one of the hardest waxes available, which means it will burn longer than softer waxes and your candle won’t sag if stored in hot temperatures or even while burning. Dimensions: 1.75” (4.44 cm) diameter X 2” (5.08 cm) height. Price includes shipping within the U.S. only. If you’re outside the U.S. and would like to purchase, please contact me at auntiebswax4u@yahoo.com and I’ll provide an adjusted price.

Happy hour combined with book talk is a wonderful thing. Charlotte and I were out for a little happy hour yesterday and we talked a bit about how much we enjoyed reading Margaret Mitchell’s epic novel Gone With The Wind. Neither of us had read the book until recently, though we’ve both seen the movie more than once.

It’s interesting how when one sees the movie before reading the book how the characters in the movie appear in the mind’s eye while reading. Charlotte and I concurred that the casting for the movie Gone With The Wind was superb.

The film was nominated for thirteen Academy awards in 1940 and won eight. Hattie McDaniel (portraying Mammy) was the first African American woman to ever be nominated and win the Oscar for best supporting actress. If you haven’t seen the movie or read the book, I’d recommend both.

In honor of such a great story, with the glamor of the Old South, the frustrated romances, the sheer determination to survive the trials and fall-outs of war, I created a set of drink charms to bring that Southern charm to your party.

Scarlett O’Hara, Mammy, Rhett Butler, Melanie Wilkes, Prissy, Ashley Wilkes

Tara is calling, Scarlett is answering, and Rhett isn’t giving a damn. Oh the heartbreak! The characters in Gone With The Wind would be a great addition to your next party.

 

Gone With The Wind Drink Charms

The Gone With The Wind drink charm set includes: Scarlett O’Hara, Mammy, Rhett Butler, Melanie Wilkes, Prissy, and Ashley Wilkes Each bottle cap charm is approximately 1 1/4" (3.17 cm) diameter. Each of the six charms will have its own unique bead color. The colors of the beads are at the discretion of Auntie B and subject to availability (may differ from those shown in the pictures).
