GIVEAWAY! (NOW CLOSED) Beeswax Candles from Local Apiary: Full Moon Farm

While the boys enjoy a well-deserved nap, Lucy and I are relaxing and coming up with a Giveaway for you, dear reader, as I enjoy a post-Thanksgiving-madness/week-of-illness cup of tea. We’re all mostly better, just a little congested. Benjamin’s breathing is easier and Lucy never got a fever, so I think we’re out of the woods with this bug before the new week begins. Yay!

And here’s the giveaway…

Two beautiful beeswax candles from Monticello, FL Apiary, Full Moon Farm! You can see Full Moon Farm around at the Lake Ella Farmer’s Market and other Tallahassee farmer’s markets as well as Tupelo Bakery and the Jefferson’s Farmer’s Market in Monticello. You can also check them out by “liking” Full Moon Apiary on Facebook which has updates about which days they will be at which farmer’s market. I love to support local business and I LOVE beeswax candles. Their natural color and scent is so wonderful. At Lucy’s Baptism, Fr. Tim mentioned when explaining the lighting of candles in the rite that beeswax is the preferred substance for liturgical candles, not only because of its high quality and clean aromatic burn, but also because the bee is a symbol for Christ, tirelessly caring for His Church. Another reason to love beeswax!

It’s a great time for candles as the season of Advent approaches (tomorrow!!!) followed by Christmastide. You could use one for the Christ Candle in the center of your Advent wreath or you could save your candles until Candlemas in February and have them blessed for use in domestic liturgical celebrations for the year.

So…to enter this giveaway, leave a comment on this post. To get a second entry, subscribe via email or RSS feed and leave a second comment to let me know you did (or that you’re already a subscriber). Giveaway ends Friday, December 2nd at midnight and I’ll use a random number generator to choose a winner. I’ll announce the winner Saturday, December 3rd.

Disclosure: Full Moon Farm doesn’t know who I am. I’m just saying thanks to my readers/subscribers with a fun gift and promoting some good local farming.


And the winner is…..Comment #3: Brittany of Sweetly in the Trees  Congrats! Email or FB me your address and I’ll send them next week 🙂
