My Favorite Things

Do you remember the song from the musical "My Favorite Things"? Raindrops on roses, and whiskers on kittens, bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens......... Well, Yankee Candle has a new collection out for the holidays, called My Favorite Things collection! I received the scratch and sniff (yes that's right) catalog in the mail the other day, and I was so excited! They have the fragrances of Moon on their Wings, Bright Copper Kettles,

Raindrops on Roses, Warm Woolen Mittens, Crisp Apple Strudel, and Blue Satin Sashes! How clever is that? I was skeptical of Warm Woolen Mittens. Now, I thought, what in the world could that smell like? It's hard to describe, but actually one of my favorites! Almost like a clean cotton smell. Yankee candles have always been one of my favorites. The smells really come out, but not overly strong. They also burn for a long time. One of my other favorites of course is the pine scented ones, and gingerbread.

The white chocolate mint is also yummy! Some of the other new ones are Cherries on Snow, Be Jolly, and Icicles.

I can't wait to go to the store, and see all of their goodies! Car fresheners, scented oils, travel tins...... They also have a set of 12 votives in all of the fragrances of the "Favorite Things Collection. You get 2 of each for $19.99. Great stocking stuffers!

I always burn candles in my home, especially in fall and winter. Makes the house smell so cozy, and inviting. Hope this helps with some gift ideas! Thanks for coming by!

We have a Yankee Candle Outlet and I bought 5 of the large candles this summer so inexpensively. And my favorite is clean cotton. I think I have a mistletoe one that I 'll burn soon - starting on Black Friday.

What lovely names for a collection of candles ~ I must look out for them. Candles can be used in so many different environments and I always have one lit somewhere or other throughout the house.

Hello--thank you for visiting my blog today; your question about "25" was from a number stencil purchased from Hobby Lobby and used light brown stencil paint onto scrap-booking paper. Love your blog--I don't leave a lot of comments anywhere, but I do love looking! Candles are my all time favorites in this house. Have a great week. Patty

Whoa, and where have I been? I missed this one sweet friend, I'm sorry.
Of course I remember Julie Andrews signing that song. I'm not sure we have those candles here, but I can't burn them because of our birds. They are very toxic. I have to burn bees wax only ; (
BTW, I LOVE your new header. Very pretty in PINK.
Hope you are having a great weekend my friend.
Love you
Love Me

My absolute favorite store in the whole world is the Yankee Candle Shop in Massachusetts. How I wish I lived closer!! It's an entire Christmas village - each leading to different areas totally bedecked in different themes. My favorite is the Bavarian area! Now I'm missing it, but at 5 hours away, it's just not a place a get to very often.

Gingerbread's my favorite!
