Pretty Decorative Candles

This morning my daughter and I did a little shopping, and we stopped at Pier 1 Imports (which I have never been to before), and while there I found these wonderfully scented candles! I couldn't wait to get back home and embellish them with pretty roses and ribbons (thank you Rebecca for this wonderful idea!!) I plan to list 1 of them on Ebay to see how it will do, and if it sells quickly, then I will list the other one :) Each has a paper label of a Reproduced Vintage French Label with gorgeous pink roses (Thank you Graphics Fairy for these!!) I have a couple other paper labels I will be using on future candles.



UPDATE: The pink candle is now listed on Ebay



This one you see above has a Pink Honeysuckle scent, which is just HEAVENLY!! It is my favorite.



This one above has a Lavender scent (Yummy) I was expecting it to be Vanilla, because of it's color, so was quite surprised when I read the label and it said Lavender!
