I'm a total sucker for well made stuff. Also, for things that don't have an air of "Look at me, look how special and well made I am, and I'm going to make you pay more than I'm actually worth because of that!"
OK, maybe that's not what they are actually saying. They're NOT speaking to me...it's not like I hear voices from inanimate objects or anything. Sheesh. But, you know what I'm getting at--Just good stuff without the attitude.
Tatine candles is that kind of stuff. Maybe I have an extra soft spot in my heart since they're made in my beloved hometown of Chicago. I promise I did not know that until after I bought the candle and checked out the website. It was my gift with purchase.
Either way, check them out. Tatine. Just an "r" away from Tartine, which I LOVE. I digress. The candles are made in small batches by hand with great essential oils, cotton wicks and lots of passion. They also have a groovy website with much more swell info.
