Happy National Book Lovers' Day!! This is a pic of @bookscupsandcandles' library. Isn't it swoonworthy? I have the beginnings of a library corner in my bedroom, but at the rate we've been setting up our house, it won't be finished until 2030 😂😂😂
Book fairy strikes again ✨📚💚 I fairied Big Dog Coffee with a copy of The Crossword Obsession, which is a fun journey through the history of crossword puzzles and how they became one of America's favorite pastimes. Book generously donated by @rickert_beaglebooks
The August Candle of the Month is your shining green light, a beacon calling to you from the end of a dock across the bay. Yes, this candle was inspired by F. Scott Fitzgerald's tale of dreaming and drinking, The Great Gatsby.
The candle, Mint Julep, smells exactly like a mint julep would taste - notes of bourbon, crushed mint, and sugar will fill your home with the scents of West Egg in the summer.
Just like the mint muddled in your drink, every candle has unique swirls of minty green. And just like the affairs in the novel, no two candles are the same! How's that for wixology? “Open the whiskey, Tom,” she ordered, “and I’ll make you a mint julep. Then you won’t seem so stupid to yourself. . . . Look at the mint!” - Daisy

"The Polyjuice Potion, which is a complex and time-consuming concoction, is best left to highly skilled witches and wizards." 🔥🔮🕯 But everyone from muggles to the most skilled wizards and witches can have their own little cauldron of spicy, woodsy Polyjuice Potion in candle form.
Can we all just swoon over these pressed flower phone cases by @thewildestflowersetsy ?? I got one for myself and the other 2 as gifts. How on earth am I supposed to choose just one?! And is that the deathly hallows made out of dried wildflowers? Yes. Yes it is.
@saraielora is one of my favorites. Her feed is fun and bright and beautiful and joyful. You can't help but smile browsing through her gorgeous photos. And she's having a give away! Yay! So hop on over and check out her feed and her booktube channel 📚💕🕯
I've made my Gardens of Pemberley candle available again for one day only -- link in profile. 200 years ago today, Jane Austen died at the young age of 41. She explored themes that remain relevant aspects of human nature throughout the centuries -- family dysfunction, societal expectations of women, class and wealth, morality, complicated love. Jane was one of the OG feminists.
