Hey friends! First, let me apologize for the unplanned silence over the last week or so. I have so many great recipes, travel posts and more to share with you so soon but I haven’t had much time to actually write any of them. Eek! Rest assured, there will be a recipe for you tomorrow! In the meantime though, I wanted to pass along some info on a lovely new Etsy shop that is opening today.

If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it close to a hundred times, but I have made some incredible friendships and connected with many wonderful people as a result of this blog. One of those people is my friend Kjerste who I first came to know through her lovely Instagram feed. We share a love for knitting and sewing and our aesthetics overlap in many ways. In addition to her many other talents, Kjerste makes her own soy wax candles and they are amazing! I was honored to be part of the group of product testers so I’ve been a lucky girl getting to enjoy my candles for the past few months! We received the French lavender, grapefruit mangosteen, coconut lime verbena, and honeysuckle. They are all lovely and it is hard to choose a favorite but for me, the French lavender wins out with the grapefruit mangosteen an extremely close second.

To celebrate the shop launch, Kjerste has offered the coupon code ANNIESEATS20 which is good for 20% off all purchases of $25 or more. Be sure to note that she is offering flat rate shipping at $6 regardless of quantity. That is a steal! I am definitely planning to stock up. And you know Wax and Wool will be a great option for gifts in just a few short months when holiday season rolls around. I appreciate any support you show to this lovely talented lady in her new venture, and I know she does too. Happy Monday!
