The creative team of HAEVP
(The Houston Event Vendors & Professionals Organization) really know how to host one great mixer! Dione Gray-Branch, founder of HAEVP
and her creative team of professionals are not only a class act, but an act that’s truly hard to follow. The awards ceremony was heartfelt and sincere, not just a bunch of rehearsed words. Mrs. Branch honestly values the people that she is connected to, a rare find among business these day. This event was great in every aspect. However, what I enjoyed most (besides Extraordinary Cakes fantastic cupcakes, lol) was actually “meeting” so many of my Facebook friends in person. As a business owner, I interact with a lot of people via Facebook on almost a daily basis. And in doing so, I feel as if I already know these same people, so meeting them in my opinion just takes it to a whole other level.

And I must say that meeting each and every one of you was my esteemed pleasure!
As for the businesses listed below; they are either one of my friends on Facebook, or I have Liked their page(s), or both. As for the rest of them, I will be adding them as friends and liking their pages as well very soon. I hope that you will join me!
Thought I'd check in for a moment and give you a few updates. I have been busy, busy, busy these days working on lot of different projects. However, I did manage to take a little time for myself… yeah me! During my short intervals of “me o’clock” I did manage to get in a few movies. First, my daughter took me to see the Lion King in 3d. That was great. I hadn’t seen it since she was younger. It was just like when she was little only this time she paid! Then I actually stopped long enough to watch Burlesque and Country Strong on demand. Two very good movies I might add.

Autumn is absolutely, positively my favorite season! To me autumn is the falling and then raking of all those perfectly golden leaves, viewing in awe and amazement the meticulously blended colors and hues of the landscape, the feel of the crisp cool air on my face and yes of course the delicious candy and caramel apples and the rich, buttery popcorn balls. Even as a child I loved autumn and although I am now an adult, I love it all the more!
And while I have no leaves to rake, I still marvel at the beauty of the season. I enjoy the shorter days and extended nights. I have always enjoyed the soft flickering light and the pleasant aroma of candles, but it seems as though I enjoy them even more during the fall. I especially like the richer, bolder fall scents that are usually introduced by candle makers this time of year. Unfortunately Divine Flame Candles will not be introducing any fall fragrances this year.
However, if you are looking to purchase some highly fragranced fall scented candles, please visit Zeke’s Candles & Specialties at www.ZekesCandles.com
and look for their new fall scents. Their 6 oz. “Pumpkin Spice
” scented candle is now on sale for $5.00!
Autumn by: Albert Laighton (1829-1887)
The world puts on its robes of glory now;
The very flowers are tinged with deeper dyes;
The waves are bluer, and the angels pitch
Their shining tents along the sunset skies.
The distant hills are crowned with purple mist;
The days are mellow, and the long, calm nights,
To wondering eyes like weird magicians show
The shifting splendors of the Northern Lights.
The generous earth spreads out her fruitful stores,
And all the fields are decked with ripened sheaves;
While in the woods, at Autumn's rustling step,
The maples blush through all their trembling leaves.
As promised, the wonderful new fall scents are here. Enchanting fragrances of apples, cinnamon, mulberry and more will fill your home with delightful aromas of the season.
*See our new fragrance descriptions below.
Apple Spice: The smell of crisp apples with a blend of spices, and just a touch of citrus to round it out.
Bayberry: Also known as the “friendship candle”, Bayberry has an earthy and woodsy fragrance.
Eucalyptus: A clean and bracing scent that’s certain to awaken the senses!
Ginger Bread: This delightful fragrance has the rich, beautiful aroma of brown sugar, Ginger Snaps and a light touch of cinnamon.
Holiday Spice: Smells like a happy holiday homecoming with its festive aromas of cinnamon, all spice and clove.
Mulberry: Our deep, ripe mulberry fragrance is sweet with the perfect amount of tartness.

Well we sure are! Although the leaves aren't turning quite yet, you can certainly feel the wonderful and glorious oncoming arrival of Autumn. The fall season immediately brings to mind carnivals, county fairs, the Texas Renaissance Festival, Halloween, candied apples, candy corn and pumpkin pie! This is the perfect time of year for warm and delicious comforting foods like potato soup with ham and fresh out of the oven, piping hot, old fashioned yeast rolls whose golden tops have been brushed with melted butter.
The longer, cooler nights also bring to mind the soft glow and the dancing flame of a burning candle infusing an entire room with the rich, magnificant scents of the season. Divine Flame Candles is pleased to announce that we will be adding six new marvelous fall scents to the Zeke and Lucas Country Collection
. Apple Spice, Bayberry, Eucalyptus, Ginger Bread, Holiday Spice and Mulberry will soon be taking center stage. We can hardly wait! Not to worry folks, we'll still have our tried and true favorite; Pumpkin Spice.

Well I'm sure excited! I can hardly wait. Fall is my absolute favorite season. Along with its bright and sunny cooler tempartures by day and its darker chilly tempartures by night and its robust shades of red, orange, gold, brown, and even purple, it also seems to bring with it euphoric feelings of comfort. The Fall season ushers in its own special array of glorious scents of apple, orange, pumpkin, spices and more.
I am pleased to announce that in the coming weeks, we will be introducing our new Fall Fragrances! An array of Citrus, Floral and Woody fragrances that are guaranteed to complement the long awaited and welcome crisp autumn air!
