monday motivation -hand made tea lights give-away

I have a passion for hand made things.  I love to support small artisans who use their hands to create and make good quality as well as useful items.  One etsy seller who I admire happens to be Michael Nell from the Green Candle co.  Today, I am happy to share with one of you a box of 100% beeswax hand made tea lights.  These are perfect for your Jack-O-Lantern or for your table.
 These tea lights make wonderful gifts.  Michael says;

I pour these tea light candles from wax obtained from commercial honey producers in the Southern California High Desert. The wax is naturally colored and has the mild fragrance of honey.

These tea light candles are poured in recyclable polycarbonate shells that let the warm glow if the candle flame shine through. They burn for about 4 hours in optimal conditions, (see below), and give a lovely, gentle light that contributes a sense of warmth and intimacy in any setting.

It is said by some that burning beeswax candles is more healthy than burning petroleum wax candles as the beeswax produces less harmful products of combustion. It is also said that burning beeswax candles produces negative ions in the air for a cleaner, healthier environment. 
Visit the Green Candle shop and tell me which is your favorite candle.  You may see something you like there too - Michael would be happy to ship candles to your door.  Leave a comment and wednesday morning I will be back to announce the winner.  Happy Monday.

If you create something artisanal with your hands, I would love to share your hand made items with my readers.  Please feel free to contact me.

How perfect! I love the tea lights. I usually buy them when I am in England as I have a specific kind that I like but these look really lovely and I would love to try them.

Thank you for sharing them!

I love the fact these are basically green and who doesn't use tea lights? What a wonderful giveaway, thank you Patricia.

I was just looking for tea lights to put in my Glassy Baby - these are perfect! Thanks, Patricia!

Have a beautiful day!!

Lovely, Patricia. Having something handmade in one's life seems to somehow slow the world down a bit, I think. The little tea lights would come in handy for the glassybabys that I've been burning every night as the days grow darker.
Happy Monday! XO

How perfect! I love lighting candles in the evening as we move towards winter.

I love all of the options, but know I would use the two boxes of 8" tapers all the time.

Thanks for sharing this company with your readers!
