We were able to share a wonderful personalized house warming gift with our friends. Thank you Deb !!!!

"Hello! We are the faces behind Vela's Candelas. My name is Kayla, and I work with my husband, Connor, to create all of the "scent-sational" candles for Vela's Candelas.

Vela is a family name, but on top of this, the name means candle in Spanish. This means the translated version of our company name is "The Candle's Flame" or "The Candle's Candle."

Our candles are made from soy wax made right here in the Midwest and hand-poured in Marion, Iowa. We work to make sure that you’ll be able to smell the fragrance of our candles wafting through the air. The scent of our candles will fill the air and help you create the mood and atmosphere you want. We hope that our candles will bring warmth and light into your home.

For the longest time, we lived in apartments that marked candles as "contraband." Once we moved into our own house, we were so excited to be able to light our own candles and even began making them, and they really made it feel like home. Now we'd like to share them with you and help you make your house a home, too!

"The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.”
John 1:5"

I love supporting local businesses! This cute little store at the Coral Ridge Mall, Bits & Pieces, sells an assortment of stuff from all local businesses! I was recently in contact with the owner telling her that I was having a hard time finding good fitting scrub caps for work! She personally hand made some that fit great! She’s now selling them in her store for only $10 a scrub cap! She is in the process of making scrub caps for breast cancer awareness, ones with dogs, and cat and the hat ones! She also sells these great fitting masks in many different designs as well for only $10 a mask! Not to mention they sell cute hand made wood work, art work, chocolates, jams, etc! Check this store out and support local business!

Just grabbed the last 3 jars of Pineapple Bacon Salsa off the shelf at the store. We are addicted to this - it is a sweet salsa and goes really well with salted chips. It is also very fruity (more so compared to my previous choice the "movie star" brand) and is of a finer texture, which is what I prefer. Heat wise it is more like mild to me than medium, and that's just fine by me. Ready for Super Bowl!
