  1. Gina, when you have time could you do a tutorial on making a candle in a tea cup? What an adorable gift to give to a friend.

  2. I think balsam is my favorite Christmas candle scent, I love candles around the holiday's.

  3. This is so inventive and pretty! And so special that it's handmade! I just got a peppermint and vanilla candle this past weekend that I'm loving so right now that's my favorite scent! Thanks so much for the time and effort you've put into this giveaway!

  4. What fun to make a candle and put it in a teacup! Such a pretty teacup it is too!

  5. I love it! I love peppermint scents and vanilla! Love this cute idea! I would love to have one of these! Holiday hugs!

  6. What a sweet little teacup candle. Each Christmas eve we have candles burning the fireplace.
    Mirrors are place in the back and under the candles. This is a nifty idea. Vanilla is a nice scent.
    Merry Christmas,
    Kristine Bengs

  7. Isn't that ever pretty, I have not done them in tea cups yet, great gift idea!
    We tend to stick to Cinnamon around here but I do have some other scents I do when hubby isn't around :)

  8. Wow! I have wanted to make a teacup candle for a very long time, but never did. I love them, though. Your teacup is so very pretty. I think my favorite scent is probably vanilla, though I like different Christmas scents as well. :)
