It’s 110 Outside…Let’s Build a Fire!

Casa Christina & Beeswax Co.

So, I’ve been complaining on Twitter, on Facebook, via email and basically…anywhere, about the heat we are dealing with here in South Texas. So, since complaining is not working, the heat is still here, I thought I’d really warm us up with a picture of our fireplace – ready to glow! But, this is not about heat, unless you sit really close. This is about how to not look at your fireplace and scream because you are already so hot, a warm fire is the LAST thing you want. This fabulous fireplace candelabra is from CBK and fills a fireplace opening beautifully. With outdoor entertaining so popular, it would look wonderful outside along a rock wall or in front of an outdoor fireplace.
The pillars are from one of our favorite natural candle companies, Beeswax Co., in Mason, TX. Natalie and Heather always have a great product and they burn beautifully, not to mention to slight smell of honey.
So, here’s to a nice fire….of beautiful candles on a fabulous display. Not the fire of 110 in the shade! You hear that Mother Nature? You just make it hot, I can make it beautiful!!!

Time To Sit…

Ah-h-h-h

Ah-h-h-h

The summer, my least favorite time of year, has flown by (other than the horrible heat and drought in S. Texas). From getting lots of great things at the Dallas market in June, to opening our expanded space the beginning of July…to being included in a New York Times article, being voted Best Gift Shop by our customers in the Colorado County Citizen annual poll…it’s been crazy. So, when I saw this bench, it was so inviting that I took a picture for everyone to enjoy on the blog. Then, I sat down on the bench and really took a look around at all we have accomplished in just a little over a year. And, it is not just a matter of great sales in spite of the economy…it is great friends we have made, helping folks find gifts they are proud and excited to give, being creative and creating a beautiful space for everyone to enjoy. With all that to be thankful for, it was worth sitting down and taking a look. Sometimes, we all forget to stop and smell the roses…today, I stopped and enjoyed it all. For all our friends – from blog to twitter to the store, stop, enjoy all you have done! I did and feel such a charge of energy to start again tomorrow with new projects and ideas.
