OMG, I just got my latest order from Auntie Di's candle shops.  I think I'm in love!  I got the choose 4 scents tart deal from her tart shop and a candle from .  For tarts, I chose Sour Watermelon (shown here), Lemon Poppyseed, Marshmellow, and Apple Brown Betty.  They are freakin' awesome!  I have the Watermelon one on right now, and it has made my whole apartment smell great!

The candle I got was Chocolate Coconut Maccaroon.  And let me tell ya, this stuff is fabulous!  I had gotten a sample tart of this scent with a previous order, and I just had to get the real deal.  I put it in the bathroom this morning while I took a shower, and it just put me in a good mood.  I've been jonesing for candles; I think I have melted just about every last speck of my other candles from Di (Strawberry and Sweet Pea) by putting the jars on a warmer and taking advantage of that left over bit on the bottom when the wick is gone.  Eventually I WILL own one of everything this woman makes lol.  But the budget's been pretty tight.  Living on a fixed, once monthly, income pretty much sucks, but I'm getting used to it. 
If you all get a chance, check out  It will change your life! I'm thinking of Christmas already...
