We went for a drive

The girls and I took a  drive down the highway the other day to buy something just for me. Some supplies for more crafting.  I love beeswax candles but find they can be a little expensive to buy so when I found someone local to me that sells all things to do with bees and candle making I thought I should give making some a try for myself. They have moulds galore but with a growing jar collection in the cupboard I thought I would use them to make the candles.  I ended up buying 2kg of beeswax so I should have plenty to use up some of the collection and more than enough to giveaway as gifts also. 
Since we were out on the road I thought we'd keeping driving to a little town that I haven't visited before.  There wasn't much to do, some horses to look at grazing in the paddock and an antique shop to browse in.  There was a pub of course, a post office and a little convenience store where we bought something for morning tea and then sat under the trees in the park.  It was just a simple time together just the girls and I, it was a nice way to break up the day, get out of the house for a bit  and  we can say we've been there now.

Have a wonderful weekend♥

  3. Sounds like a perfect day! I would love to see your candles when they're done. I'd be a sucker for the moulds...good for you just buying the beeswax. Hope your weekend is lovely :) xx

    1. Can't wait to see how your gorgeous candles turn out lovely x

  7. Beeswax candles smell so good. They were a new thing in the seventies and I remember buying one of the rolled ones that look like they're made out of little hexagons. It was the first candle I'd ever bought and I didn't light it for months, I just wanted to have it and look at it..and smell the honey!

  8. Beeswax candles - delightful. My 11 year old is keen to make candles but we can't source any supplies locally. Looking forward to seeing what you make.

  9. I used to LOVE making candles! Can't wait to see how they turn out! Dont they just smell devine :)

  10. Ooh, I have been wanting to try beeswax after making some soy candles..I imagine they would smell divine.
    That little town looks so quaint and is exactly the sort of place I would visit.
    Hope you are having a lovely weekend.

  11. Oh, the town looks just beautiful! Sometimes all you need to see are horses grazing in a paddock....
