I wish I could Facebook a smell to you.
Or tweet it.
Or pin it on Pinterest.
Isn’t this 2013? Aren’t we a technologically advanced society?
This candle is the best smelling candle I have ever smelled.
Ever…..in the history of ever.
You know when you walk through the doors of one of those shops on a tucked away street in the middle of a town that was built when the Pilgrims were still around……and everywhere you look there are vintage finds and antiques and baskets overflowing with textiles that were made by pioneer women by candlelight and soaps and pomanders and freshy powders and chandeliers hung from silk cords and burlap pillows with yards of ruffles.
And when you open the door to the shop….you smell it.
The smell of history and elegance and classic simplicity that envelopes you with a wonderful sense of timelessness.
This smells even BETTER than that.
I don’t work for this company.
Not even close.
They don’t know me.
And I’m sure they have never even heard of thistlewood.
They are too busy making candles that smell like perfection to know about a girl in a farmhouse in the middle of no where who just appointed herself president of a candle’s fan club.
But I could not let the sun set on today without telling you about it.
About this candle and how it inspired me.
It burned so brightly and smelled so good that it inspired me to do the very thing I have been putting off.
It inspired me to pull down those Christmas boxes from the attic.
All 37 of them.
And begin to start un-decorating.
And to go from this.
And then going from this.
Isn’t it amazing what one little really wonderful smelling candle can do.
PS The name of the candle company is Park Hill and the scent is Pomander.
PPS Just in case you have been to that same store and know the scent I am talking about…..I am totally up for any other candle suggestions.
