Amazingly beautiful piece. Will definitely keep an eye on your store!
It goes without saying; I have a deep love of candlelight ambiance and a daily obsession with tea! The teacup soy candles I create allow me to fuse these two loves with my growing interest in vintage goods and my personal desires to be more eco-conscious.
All of my candles are made with bunches of love and care by me in my smoke-free home using high quality soy wax. I start by searching local antique and second-hand stores for teacups that have a lot of charm and personality. Then, I take these little treasures home to be cleaned and prepped for pouring. I carefully wick and pour each individual candle by hand and love to watch them transform into new and delightful home accents! Once each candle has completed its burn cycle, the teacup can be easily cleaned and used for your next delicious hot cup of tea!
I hope you’ll enjoy them just as much as I do!
