Yesterday was so nice. I took Lucas out for a shopping trip to Old Town Spring. It is a part of town that is filled with antique and specialty shops and wonderful cafes/bakeries. (There are even "Barkeries" for our canine friends). I happened into one shop in particular that sold Beanpod candles. Guess I've been out of the candle loop, but I had not heard of the Beanpod candle before, but now I am hooked!

I purchased some of their soy beads ~ the vanilla and oatmeal cookie scents. These are wonderful soy "beads" that burn in a regular tart warmer. You only need about a tablespoon of "beads" and the scent lasts so long and is very strong. I am a huge tart fan and I burn them all the time, but these beads have won me over. The great thing about them is you can combine scents to create new scents. For instance you can combine the apple scent and some of the spices and have an apple pie scent. There are "recipes" available on the website. If I can find a good deal on these, there may be another giveaway soon! :)

By the way, I took Lucas to lunch at one of the little cafes in Old Town and he was such a little gentleman. I really enjoyed our day together. He waved at all the older women that passed by, then turned and informed me that he "likes to wave at girls."


  1. I had never heard of these either. And nice to meet you fellow South Texan. I'm in West Houston.
    Your boys are precious.
