Black & Light Candles Giveaway

**This Giveaway Has Ended.**

I was recently contacted by black and light co. to try out one of their candles.  I chose the black and white Curls to go with my new living room scheme.
Look at how nicely it arrived!

Look at this great box!  Packaging is so important.  It even comes with its own matches!

Here is a little bit about the company from their website:
Our family owned business is headed by Holly Eve, our founder and a design and candle artisan.  Holly combined her two passions, helping those around her and her love for candles.
In mid 2007, black & light co. partnered with mentally and physically challenged adults to pack and fulfill our product.  Our company seeks opportunities to support those in greater need.
Holly worked to make the packaging as special as her custom created candle collections. This exceptional packaging is our standard. It’s created in the spirit of our company’s acute attention to detail.
Here’s mine.  I put it in a glass holder I got from Goodwill and on top of the new little table I picked up from TJ Maxx this weekend.

Here are some facts about the black & light candles.  I’ve bolded some interesting points.
  • These candles have the unbelievable ability to glow from wick to base. Once lit, the glow literally bursts from every angle of the candle, and even out through the bottom.
  • Conceptualized, designed and created by a candle aficionado and manufactured here in the United States.
  • Designs are first drawn by hand and take up to fifty hours to complete.
  • Life span: a 15 hour-an-inch burn time which is about three times the average store bought candle.
  • Packaged and shipped by workers with disabilities. black & light® co creates jobs in a tough market economy. black & light® co supports several charitable concerns.
  • Fragrance Free.  They do not interfere with the aroma of home cooked meals, perfume, fresh cut flowers or create allergic reactions for people or their pets.
  • Packaging: recycled and reusable boxes that are—-in and of themselves—-gifts.
black and light company’s website has so many different styles to choose from, as well as 4 inch and 6 inch candles.

Thanks for introducing this company!! The 6" Divine candle was my favorite for my black and white vintage bedroom. It would match perfectly. If I don't win I think I will still have to purchase this!

Wow what a wonderful company. I love two things especially about them (besides their beautiful candles.) They have mentally and physically disabled members of society working for them and they are US based. God Bless such a wonderful company!! If I were lucky enough to win I would love the 4" Dots - White Engraved on Black. It would match my kitchen so beautifully!!
