Just like lemon cake

With the holidays behind me, I finally placed an order with Dame Candle Company which arrived yesterday (Thank you, Wendy!) The scents are the best thing going, but there is a pitfall...

I promptly popped a Lemon Cake soy tart into my tart warmer and it only took a few minutes for the smell of lemon cake to make it's way through the entire house. Lemon Cake is my favorite dessert and the aroma was so convincing that I thought Hubs had put something into bake.

So, the pitfall? The candles and tarts smell so good that I am convinced there are calories in there somewhere.

I am determined to try all 52 (seems like there are that many) scents, but don't know if I will be able to budge off of the Lemon Cake!

A most outstanding opportunity to support those undergoing cancer treatment is developing.

I've organized a donation drive to benefit The Hope Lodge in Grand Rapids. Chris was kind enough to donate a ton of Sonoma and many knitters have agreed to design and knit squares to make the blanket. (I am so excited...)
How does the opportunity to own your very own custom designed and knit blanket made of Briar Rose Sonoma grab you? Just by donating to the American Cancer Society cause we have established, the blanket could go home with you or one of your friends.

The link to donate went up yesterday and if you make a donation, your name could be pulled in a random drawing and you could have the FINISHED Briar Rose blanket!

Visit the blog where progress and updates are posted or you can visit the donation site directly here at the American Cancer Society.

Get your family and friends involved - everyone can participate to support those dealing with cancer treatment.
