Vintage Aroma

Photobucket



This weekend, we attended an art show at Children's Harbor.  Children's Harbor is a camp on Lake Martin near Alexander City, Alabama, that provides services for seriously ill children and their families.  The annual art show draws over thirty regional artists, and this year did not disappoint.

Scenes from Children's Harbor Art Show



Shanley Belle and I loved Jeffrey Long's booth.  Jeffrey is an artist who also makes handmade, fragranced soy candles poured in original vintage and antique glassware.  He attends the World's Longest Yard Sale (127 Corridor Sale), and buys lovely containers for his candles.  I love how Jeffrey combines his environmental sensibilities and appreciation for the past into his eco-friendly and beautiful candles.   Jeffrey had sold all of his art by the time we arrived at his booth, so I can't share any of his art with you (and we did not get to purchase any of his art, either).

Here are a few pictures of Jeffrey, Shanley Belle, and Jeffrey's adorable booth.

Shanley wanted a candle for her dorm, so she chose the Southern Afternoon candle in a purple glass. It smells like heaven: the scent is a combination wisteria and sweet iced tea. You can't get any more Southern than that!

I chose the Sunny South scent that smells like lemon and verbena.

It was so hard to choose from the different lovely scents!

What have you been doing this Memorial Day weekend?  I would love to hear from you!

Please join Nita @ Mod Vintage Life for her Mod Mix Monday.

  5. I love the candles and the glasses they are in... so sweet! I wish I could smell them, as well! I am recovering from jetlag today. And hubby is resting his painful neck (a disability he has had for a few years). So, let the unpacking and laundry continue! Cheers!

    I live in Canada so it was business as usual today, our long weekend this month was the weekend before celebrating Queen Victoria's birthday.

  13. What wonderful candles they are. I love making candles too and putting them into pretty containers. You just have to be careful of some old containers breaking due to hot wax and wick.
