Ooooh its lovely!  I have lit it and mmm its filling my living room with the most wonderful scent.. shame though as I dont know which one it is!  I shall have to guess! mmm maybe snowflake cookie?  Its lovely even though I dont know which one it is!

And I have these all the way through December! :)

Ok to my stitching...
