My Story

My name is Jeanette, I have been making candles for a couple of years now and although I'll never say I've perfected it, I don't make a bad job!

My candles smell amazing, being 100% soywax means burn perfectly and leave no black residue - anywhere! I am now, due to a reorganisation of my work life, incorporating a former love -- painting, whether it be on glass, canvas slate, paper or even wood, you will find my art work on here from time to time.

I am a mum of 3 and granny to 5, and along with looking after my elderly parents, I'm kept pretty busy, but my lovely partner is always ready to roll up his sleeves to help.

Between us we run Templehall Holidays in Coldingham -- where we have a 2 bedroomed holiday cottage, 2 Shepherds Huts and a 5 van CL Caravan and Motorhome Club Site.
