Each year, millions all over the world come together to make Earth Hour happen. This year WWF is celebrating the 10th anniversary of Earth Hour which is now celebrated in over 172 countries and over 7,000 cities and towns worldwide.
This global phenomenon started as an Aussie campaign designed to draw attention to tackling global warming and to get people talking about what we can do to help.
Around the globe, millions of people will switch off their lights for 60mins in support of climate change action, for a low pollution, clean energy future, one in which we can continue to enjoy the best of nature and for us, our great Aussie outdoor lifestyle
This year Earth Hour is at 8:30pm on Saturday 25 March 2017
Custom orders are always welcome. I think this mortar is one of the more unusual fills, at least I knew there was an unlikely chance of the vessel breaking! The prefect fragrance fill for this was of course Kaffir Lime & Sandalwood fragrance.
Coconut & Lime fragrance has always been a big winner come the summer months. Once the lid is taken off the candle jar and the fragrance smelt, it seems to take most everyone to the beach. Luckily living in Queensland we get to spend lots of months on the beach hence Queensland’s motto ‘Beautiful one day perfect the next…’ I guess that’s why the Coconut & Lime fragrance is a top favourite.
Luxurious scented candles, handmade in Australia with exquisite fragrances, essential oils, 100% soy wax, cotton wicks, reusable glass tumblers (ideal for refills) and resealable lids.
So, I thought I’d start with a series of ‘fragrant photos’, first time for me for a flat lay and it seems that the general opinion is that they should all be taken on a white or light background. Coriander and Orange scented candleI thought I’d try it on a black background to be totally different, (plus I only have a black bench top) so the candle stands out as the hero (which it is). I think it works well with the vibrant colours of the coriander and orange. What do you think?
The vintage Fowlers Vacola #28 preserving jar is now a rare collectable. However I’ve been lucky to come across a number of them in recent times. They were used in days gone by to either boil or steam the Christmas pud. My #28’s are filled with a different kind of fruitiness… I love the heaviness of the chunky vintage glass tinged with green. With their original lids and clips I’m sure many vintage lovers could be converted to candle lovers too…
One of my favourite shots.. Clearly it was Easter but I wanted to have some kind of association with candles so was very happy to find my ‘Wee Willie Winkie’ candle stick holder. It almost seems that the Cadbury’s Mini Easter Eggs are out just after Christmas these days, I’m a bit of a shocker and always snaffle up a few bags and hide them in the freezer. I love this colourful take on Chocolate Eggs…
Mad as it may be, whenever I travel so does a SusieMak Candle. It was fun taking the Bobble Top on a cruise last year, perched on a post in Sicily
