Among all the things I love, one of my favorties is candles. My home has every type of candle I think that has been made. I found a candle store while I was visiting my sister in Missouri and I fell in love with this store. Fortunately I don't live in Missouri so I can't shop there everyday, but I visit my sister at least once every year so I stock up. This store carries everything you could ever want if you are a candle lover and the owners are the friendliest and most helpful people I have ever met.
My favorite candle that I have purchased from there is what I guess you would call a personal candle. The one I had made is with teddy bears (which I collect). This is how it works..you take your figurines into the store and they create a candle using those figurines. They do have quite a few made up already that you can choose from but it is way more fun to create your own. You can pick from all kind of styles of candles and choose the color, they make the candles right there. I was there for a few days so I was able to get mine before I left for home, but they will ship the candle to you if you can't be there to pick it up.
If you are not from Missouri or don't plan on visitng you can send your figurines to them and they will create your candle for you.
The candle is burnable, they suggest you burn it down a ways and then start using tea lights. There is no scent to the candle but when the candle is burning it lights up the figurines. It is truly a work of art and something I will treasure forever.
