Decorating for Christmas

Our family tradition has always been that we decorate the tree the weekend after Thanksgiving. I thought this year I might let these guys take over for us.

Happy Thankgiving

In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you.

The things I am grateful for this year are:
1. Salvation: the most awesome free gift I ever received.
2. Family: No matter how much they get on my nerves at times I love both my girls dearly and there aren't words to describe how much I love my grandchildren.
3. Friends: I have a very dear circle of friends that I can call upon when I am troubled. There are a number of family members in this category also. Isn't it nice when your friends are also your family. You can't help if you are related to them but that you have become friends means you like them regardless.

review Febreze Home Collection Wooden Wick Candle

No fireplace, no problem. Breathe a sigh of relief because the new Febreze Home Collection Wooden Wick candle has you covered. Bring the calming crackle of a burning fire into your home anytime of year with 80 hours of "ahhhhhhhh.
I was recently sent a set of 3 Febreze Home Collection Wooden Wick Candles to try out and review. I loved them. I am a candle freak and these were tall heavy glass containers that burn a long time.
Available in nine premium scents, these tranquil candles are specially designed with a wooden wick to recreate the ambiance and sound of a crackling fire indoors. Offering a brilliant range of everyday fragrances, Febreze Home Collection Wooden Wick candles can help inspire a scent and design transformation in your home. Each candle is in a clear glass jar with a Home Collection label and a wooden removable lid.

Made of a soy blend that releases fragrances as the wooden wick burns up to 80 hours. Febreze Home Collection Wooden Wick candles can be purchased at your local Walmart in fragrances like Green Tea Citrus, Pomegranate Mango, Cranberry Pear, Orange Honeycomb, Rosewood Plum and Willow Blossom; as well as seasonal scents that include Anjou Pear Spice, Gingersnap Vanilla, and Yumberry Sangria.

For review I received Anjou Pear Spice, Cranberry Pear, and Rosewood Plum. Anjou Pear Spice is a light sweetness of fresh fruit lingering in a comforting blend of spices. Cranberry Pear is a snap of cranberries blended with the crisp scent of pear. Rosewood Plum is scented with the warmth of rosewood harmonizing with the rich sweetness of plum.
My aunt who was visiting immediately wanted to smell the Rosewood Plum. She loves the rosewood fragrances. My favorite of this set was the Anjou Pear Spice. I like spice scents but I am going to have to go buy a Gingersnap Vanilla to try out. It just sounds yummy. The Anjou Pear spice is s very light scent that just hints the air with fragrance but isn't overwhelming. You wouldn't go chasing through the house trying to track the scent down, it just gently whiffs through the air and makes you smile.
The candles come with a wooden lid that I used as a coaster to sit the candle on. I don't know if thats what its for but its how I used it :). I thought the square wooden wick was just the neatest thing though. So you can smell the wood burning! How genius is that! I haven't ever had a candle with a square wick.

If you want to find out some more information you can find out at Febreze on Facebook or Febreze on Twitter.

Disclosure: I was provided with three Febreze Home Collection Candles and a $15 Walmart gift card from Febreze and MyBlogSpark. The opinions here are mine alone, and not influenced by the sponsor in any fashion.
