My Kenneth Turner Candle from Cote de Texas has arrived

I commented on "Help Celebrate Cote de Texas' Second Birthday With A Giveaway!" And what do you know, I won: Cote de Texas' Second Anniversary Winners!" Thanks so much.

How about this autographed "Joni Webb" card?

Where to put it? I think it will migrate around the house. I'm almost looking forward to the next power outage to fire this baby up - almost. I think having some folks over for a little candlelight dinner would be better.

I'm not worthy but I am grateful for the candle and for Joni's Cote de Texas Blog.

  1. It is nice to see Joni's handwriting! It reminds me a bit of Princess Diana's. Does the candle have a scent?

  3. I can't quite determine the scent. It's not a waxy smell but not a strong scent. Have to give our girls a sniff. Many scented candles make us sneeze our brains out. We've got one of those on our back porch. No problems with this one.

  6. Oh GOD - HOW EMBARRASSING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I should have wrapped it!!!!!!
    Terry- the scent is original. Kenneth Turner's first. He is an amazing florist from London. His candles used to come in terracotta pots inside little wicker baskets that could be resued for a multitude of things. Now, they are in glass which is not as useful. But, it might be a nice vegetable dish? Anyway - fire it up - the scent is very different but distinctive. You won't find much that smells like it. Enjoy!!!

  8. My daughters came over today and said, "What's that?" They notice new stuff in our place and want to know everything about it. Do I live a dull life or what? Of course they picked up a Jaggers Pizza. So, we've got that going for us: Candle, Pizza, daughters (and son), maybe not so dull after all.
