Essentials: The Goth Rosary Candles

I’ve written about The Goth Rosary’s Fragrance Mists in the past and am happy to announce that AntiSally is now offering soy candles in all of her darkly delicious scents. Over the years, The Goth Rosary has provided a variety of high-quality and reasonably priced products– body washes, perfume oils, soaps, and shampoos.

I love candles. So, imagine my glee when my favorite purveyor of scents decided to branch into the candle business. According to the website, the candles have a burn time of around 3.5 hours but I’ve been getting between 5-6 hours with mine. These burn clean without any of the black smoke or residue that is common with many commercial brands.

These candles pack a powerful punch. It doesn’t take long for the scent to permeate a small room and leave a lasting impression. My favorite scent, so far, is Shadows. This scent is subtle enough not to overwhelm but still strong enouh to add a pleasantly dark atmosphere.

Not only are these candles a great product, but the adorable packaging just adds to the appeal. The 100% soy candles are housed in lovely tin coffins. The tins make these candles great as gifts or party favors and can easily be reused after burning.

If you like candles or are just looking for something unique, these candles are perfect. The Goth Rosary offers more than twenty unique scents and will be releasing a new one next month.


Theodore, Coolest Cat on the Block

This Christmas brings a new member to my extended family of dolls, toys, and animals. Theodore is a beautiful Siamese Cat Webkin. Why Webkinz? Well, there’s just something about a world of addictive flash games and using points to buy items for my virtual pets that keeps me coming back. I think what I love most about Webkinz is that I have a very lovely physical toy that I can then carry over into a virtual world.

Theodore is a freelance artist. He loves painting, poetry, and potato chips. Of an evening, he can be found in his room listening to the local public radio and licking irish cream. When he isn’t working on his latest novel or painting, he can be found downloading videos from YouTube to his iPhone or visiting his buddies over at

Theodore’s favorite poet is T.S. Eliot. His favorite book is Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. If you ask him what his favorite movie is, he’ll tell you Immortal Beloved but what he really means is Aristocats.
