I know… I can’t quite believe it myself! A Franklin record-breaking fifth blog in October . Next I’ll be writing a book!
On Saturday we have a Yankee Candle set of 2 advent calendars – a must for any fragrance fan in the run up to the big day ! They come in purple and blue and are a wonderful pre-Christmas treat as each day you can discover a beautifully scented Yankee Candle tea light behind each of the 25 doors.
The purple calendar contains four of ‘Cosy by the fire'; ‘Berry Trifle'; ‘Bundle Up'; ‘Sparkling Cinnamon’ and ‘Christmas Garland’ and five ‘Christmas Memories’ and the blue calendar contains four of ‘Angel’s Wings'; ‘Winter Glow'; ‘Sparkling Snow'; ‘Christmas Cookie’ and ‘Snowflake Cookie’ and five ‘Icicles’. Each tea light can offer up to six hours burn time. The names are making me feel very Christmassy already, wait till you smell them all!
At midnight on Sunday I’ll be joining Peony Flowers’ co-founder, Julie Bates, for Monday’s brand new Peony Flowers Today’s Special Value made especially for QVC. Julie and her team have created a wonderful gift which comes in a choice of 3 colours – Magenta, White and Pink – that can be displayed all year round. I was sent a sample of the magenta option, featuring a beautiful waisted vase set with a blousy peony, stem of roses, autumnal foliage and berries set in the ever clear, never pongy still water, all wrapped in tissue in a Peony gift bag – so classy as a gift for any occasion or just simply to add to or start your own Peony collection. Look out for a great Today’s Special Value price and free P&P!
I tweeted a picture of Toby this week under the heading ‘Toby rockin’ his Celtic Warrior look’, so for those not on Twitter I’ve included it here together with a snap I took of Ellie whilst out walking – saw no snakes this time!
Till next month stay organised and fragrant !
