I just looked through it. I love that your beautiful pine needle basket is on Arounna's note to readers page.


They are very beautiful Margie..I had hoped to squeeze in more time to craft this season...No matter HOW many times the Holidays come and go, I always end up feeling short of time..I am going to just let it go, but remember this activity as one that looks MOST enjoyable to try on a snowy day in the coming months:) Yours are beautiful..Congratulations on being featured in BAH mag..It is FULL of inspiration!

I was just looking at my candle molds the other day and thinking I should use up the last of my wax. I was also thinking that taper-making would keep some busy boys occupied for a while. Now that would be a gift! (to me)

The Full Basket

The candles look incredible. Excellent gift idea!


thank you always for your friendship and kindness
always a pleasure to have you part of the mag
see you on the weekend


Hi Margie, it's been awhile. These are so lovely, are they available for sale somewhere. I may of missed a link? Hope all is well! x Faythe

No unfortunately they are not for sale anywhere. We make them to light up our dark winter nights and to give as gifts.
Thanks for all the lovely comments.


gorgeous candles! your family will be so pleased to receive them. :) love the triangles.


I love the candles, Margie. I think you might be a little psychic. (You don't want to know how long it took me to spell "psychic" before i got it right.) Just last week I thought to myself, "I want to make beeswax candles." I already have the beeswax so I went to the local big box craft store to get a mold, not realizing how expensive they are. I returned empty handed, knowing there had to be another way. I haven't had much time to think about it since and then I clicked on your link this morning. My eyes are now open to molds around the house. What a beautiful magazine. I am hoping to find a few quiet moments today to browse.


These are so lovely! I wish we had a good source for supplies around here. I remember making candles this way with my family when I was little in the 70s but I haven't made them since. Looks like one that both my children would enjoy doing. A beautiful idea to share, thanks. Jx


Your projects are always my favorite part of the awesome BAH mag!
