What a treat to come home from a long day and find my candle order on the porch! Now the only concern is which one to light first...such great scents...gardenia, water lily, lilac or peach! And the beach photo is so cute! But also knowing the love and prayer that was "poured in" makes me feel so blessed. Thank you for a much needed reminder of peace amid all the tough things going on these days!
Kimber!! I love my candles. 🥰 I posted this on my FB page, but couldn’t figure out how to tag a company. Hope you and the family enjoy the holiday weekend. 🇺🇸
Thank you so much! My mother sent me this picture because she was so tickled with her early Mother’s Day present! She loves the OBX and this was a little reminder of the good times we’ve had there! She said they smell wonderful🥰🥰🥰
Happy Birthday Kimber. I know your years going to be awesome.
NOW it is Christmas!!!
Love Pumpkin Cobbler!
Thank you so much for my order!
I am so happy I can order online!
The candles and room sprays are wonderful
I will be ordering again soon 😊
Where are you located ?
Kimber--this months box was my favorite!! I know the big one was grapefruit that I LOVED but were the little ones orange/vanilla? I want more and i am going to revew my subscription so i can get the spring summer scents! Cant wait to see you-- i may come to you before you get to me in september!
Thank you for this amazing smelling natural soy pumpkin almond biscotti 😍😍

The PROCESS of creating a collection of VINTAGE CANDLES:

1. Months of hunting & collecting vintage pieces (that are suitable for candle making. SO fun!!) 🛍💸😆

2. Clean & prepare the pieces to become candles 🚰🧽

3. Choose fragrances for the collection & pour the candles 🕯

4. Labels & finishing touches 🎀

5. Photograph the finished collection! (Usually at the beach 📸😎)

6. Edit photos & upload them to the website 💻

7. Weigh & measure each piece (so the website can calculate shipping) ⚖️ 📏

8. Research historical information for online product descriptions 🧐🤓

9. LAUNCH THE VINTAGE CANDLES! 🎉🎉🙌🏼🙌🏼

10. Pack (with great care!) and ship these beauties out to their new homes 📦📦🥰

Of all the steps involved in creating a collection of VINTAGE CANDLES, I think that photographing them is one of my favorite parts (I don’t actually take the pictures, that’s not my gift!!) But I love to help *stage* them. And seeing them displayed so beautifully together makes me so happy. And I hope you love them too! ✨

[If you or a loved one LOVES vintage treasures (hello Mother’s Day💗), then set your alarms bc this collection of VINTAGE PLANTER CANDLES launches on Friday April 30th at 9am at www.theouterbankscandlecompany.com]

Look what we just finished photographing! 📸 These gorgeous VINTAGE PLANTER CANDLES are launching next Friday the 30th at 9am. Set your alarms bc these candles are extra special ✨✨

These beautiful VINTAGE PLANTERS have been un-planted & washed out... watch them become candles! [more on that process in stories]

And here’s the extra special part about these VINTAGE PLANTER candles: once you finish burning them, simply scoop out any excess wax with a spoon and wash with warm soapy water.... & they’re ready to be filled with your favorite plants all over again... it’s that easy!

Beautiful day on the #outerbanks at Avalon Pier 🌊🌤

If this abandoned, historic *Farm Life School* building wasn’t almost 2 hours from the #outerbanks, then I would definitely be daydreaming about how I could fix it up and make it into the new home of The Outer Banks Candle Company! 🙌🏼 I mean, look at those old windows & exposed rafter tails... and room to spare for all the antiques I keep acquiring to make into candles 😉🏚✨ I just love old stuff...

[you can see that beautiful sunset from photo 2 reflecting in those pretty old windows! ]

Look at this beautiful bride!! I could not say enough wonderful things about Becca, but to give you a glimpse of what she means to me, I’ll tell you that a dozen or so years ago (when she was a teenager in our youth group), I told her that if she were 15 years older, her & I would be BEST FRIENDS!

Fast forward through a few years & I guess you could say I was somewhat of a mentor to her as she went through college & entered into full-time ministry (though I often felt like I was learning far more from her than I could ever be teaching her!)

Then at some unknown point, we woke up & realized that the age difference had *shrunk* & the friendship that we had joked about had become a reality.

More time passed & Becca’s gifts of organization, planning, coordinating, & vision casting were shining & I began to daydream (out loud) about her coming to work for The Outer Banks Candle Company. She had worked with me on & off in the candle studio for many years, but by now she was settled in Raleigh (4 hrs away) with a ministry & full life there! And then the pandemic hit, shifting her ministry remotely & brining her back to the Banks 😎

And God opened the door for her to *officially* come on board with this small candle biz! We had the joy of working together in the candle studio for many months & setting a solid foundation for the business to grow on. These days, though she just moved back to Raleigh, (in addition to her ministry), Becca is using her gifts to keep this business on track with the goals & vision we set for it. She manages the business calendar, creates order to help me stay on task (& tries to keep my head out of the creative clouds 😉). We come together to evaluate projects & products, & their successes & failures so we can do better, be more efficient & keep making candles & goodies that you will love💛 And she does SO. MUCH. MORE (everyone needs a Becca🙌🏼)

She already held valuable real estate in my heart & now she has become an invaluable part of The Outer Banks Candle Company. Today, I marvel at God’s goodness & praise Him for giving her Cailean, such a GOOD & PERFECT gift✨

VINTAGE PLANTERS! A sneak peak at the next batch of #vintagecandles 🙌🏼

I have been collecting so many of these beauties to make into candles in time for Mother’s Day (and this isn’t even all of them!! 🙈🤗)

Help me decide which ones we should pour for our first batch of vintage planter candles! Do you have a favorite? Would you like to see big, multi-wick candles or little guys? Which colors do you prefer? (And check out the babies that would be the perfect gift for a new mama!)

And the best part about these treasures: once the candle has burned down, simply wash the soy wax out with warm soapy water and plant your favorite flowers or succulents! 🌱🪴🌸
