Maker’s Monday: Dandelion Wishes Candle Co.

It’s Maker’s Monday time, my favorite day of the week! Monday’s on House Fenway I get the oppurtunity to share another maker’s wonderful shop, amazing talent and product. As the weeks go on I have come to the realization of how important it is to shop small, support local and help empower others to do the same. Buying from a small business helps support someone else’s dream. The product you receive is unique. Your purchase has been created with such incredible thought and passion —something you rarely if ever receive from a “Big Box” store purchase. So with that thought (as I jump down from my soap box), I want to introduce to you this week’s amazing maker, Dandelion Wishes Candle Co.

Meet Dandelion Wishes Candle Co.

When Fall arrives it’s candle burning season in our house! Who doesn’t like the smell of fresh baked Coffee Crumb Cake or Hot Apple Cider in the house? (even better, without having to turn on the oven, dirty the kitchen or wash a dish!) Candles for Dandelion Wishes do just that — make your house smell amazing. Their small batch candles and wax melts are 100% soy-based, which means they burn clean and contain no toxins or  pollutants. These hand-poured candles and melts are offered in a wide range scents, here are some of the my seasonal favorites…

Coffee Crumb Cake: Rich coffee and sweet strudel make us reminisce about easy Sunday morning breakfast cake. So yummy!

Lemon Sugar Cookie: Zesty lemon with a hint of sweet vanilla. Smells like Grandma’s making a fresh batch of lemon sugar cookies!
IMG_2873
Sweater Weather: A strong warm scent that fills your space with notes of cinnamon, buttercream. vanilla, and a tiny hint of brown sugar. A perfect cold weather scent to make your space feel warm and cozy!

Woodwork & Plaid: A masculine scent with fresh notes of Frasier Fir and lemon. Delish!

Maker’s Monday: Curious Timbers

It’s Monday again and that means another Maker’s Monday here on House Fenway! Every Monday I feature a small business and/or artist, their wares and a little bit about them. It has always been a fun experience meeting other makers and enjoying their creations and I want to share that all with you. The time and talent that goes into each products made by a small business or artist far out ways anything you could purchase from a big box retailer. This week’s maker is a newbie to the community, opening up on Etsy this Summer.

Maker’s Monday: Gam Gamz Handcrafted

It’s Monday! The day of the week I usually hate, but not now, with the start of House Fenway’s Maker’s Monday. I have something to look forward to at the start of every week. Each Monday is “Maker’s Monday”. I feature a small business and/or artist, their wares and a little bit about them.

Since starting House Fenway 2 years ago, it has always been a fun experience meeting other makers and enjoying their creations. The time and talent that goes into each products made by a small business or artist far out ways anything you could purchase from a big box retailer. This week’s maker is no exception.

I have several of Gam Gamz Handcrafted pillow covers throughout my house, but my new buffalo-check cover is by far my favorite. It’s neutral without just being boring “Plain Jane” and can easily be incorporated with seasonal decor from Halloween to Christmas.
