Of course, as a city planner, my heart is always with supporting local business and growth in our communities, however that is not the only reason I'm all for Foxhound Collection. The scents of these candles are fantastic. They are like little sensory adventures- bursting with beautiful natural scents in the most gorgeous combinations. I am a huge candle fanatic (I definitely got that from my Mom!), and to me it is a shame when you purchase a candle that smells great in store, but fails to perform when lit at home. Foxhound Collection's candles scent my entire apartment! Even when they are not lit I get whiffs of the scent across the room in the breeze. You can purchase her candles online HERE, or in a few shops around town- see the shop list HERE.
Below, I've put together a little do-it-yourself tutorial to re-use those used-up jars as planters for your beautiful plants. I always love adding to my plant collection in the spring to wash away those winter blues! Also, keep scrolling for a sneak peek at one of Foxhound Collection's newest Spring 2016 scents!
What You'll Need:
2. A small handful of stones/rocks for drainage
3. Soil (I used a cactci blend soil)
4. A Plant (Now, for those of you who are not blessed with the green thumb (ahem, like myself!), I suggest sticking to cacti and succulents- those little guys are relentless! My succulents from last spring actually sprouted additional succulents from them, so I propagated a few (chopped them off at the stem and re-planted). If you are propagating, make sure you let the piece you are replanting sit for 24-48 hours on a piece of paper towel after chopping, until the stem has developed a scab, before re-planting.
& A Sneak Peek!
"Created with the idea of honey bees collecting their nectar from roses alone. Inspired by the complexities of pure, raw honey. Warm and sweet but a little tart, smokey and infused with fresh rose petals."
I'm burning this one as I write this post. It brings back memories of spring and summer days!
