etsy find of the day | CURATION BLITZ 3 | 1.23.14

requested by: ultreyamama
looking for: non-parrafin scented candles, in pretty reusable jars, if possible

FEATURED: paulova makes ceramics, which she then pours scented soy wax in to create candles like these. the lovely thing is, once the wax burns off, you get a pretty handmade bowl to keep your treasures in <3

other favorite candlemakers of EFOTD:

important note!! if you plan on keeping the jars … either invest some time in learning a non-mind-numbingly way of removing labels, or sweetly request that the seller provider you a label-free jar. some may not do that, but it doesn’t hurt to ask!!

yeti’s breath soy candle by bigwhiteyeti

this is bigwhiteyeti’s first etsyfindoftheday feature – isn’t it awesome?! katie runs this milwaukee-based shop and pours the soy candles herself. i ordered this exact candle, and i love it – the name, the scent, everything!!

katie reached out to me here on tumblr (she’s a longtime follower of etsyfindoftheday – check her out on tumblr here!) and i was thrilled to feature bigwhiteyeti. thanks a ton, katie – love your shop!! i hella miss MKE, so thank you for helping me bring a little bit of wisco out to the bay.

kitten toots … adorable ;) bigwhiteyeti is my newest fave etsy shop, run by katie out of beautiful bay view, milwaukee. this scent combines strawberry and bergamot with warm, musky vanilla. i can’t wait to try this one; i have their 'yeti’s breath’ candle already, and i just LOVE it!
