I'm not going to lie... Lately, I've been very preoccupied! I'm sure you all could tell. I feel like I have a million things to do and not enough time to get it all accomplished! Unfortunately, my nails have taken a back seat. I still keep them nicely polished (only because polish prevents them from breaking) but I just don't have the energy to photograph and edit photos right now...
So what have I been up to? Well, here is something... This is the reason why I never got my challenge nails done last week! Yankee Candle's Halloween candle holder collection called "The Boney Bunch!" I'm absolutely obsessed! It began last year actually. I bought 3 pieces:
COFFIN MAN- TEALIGHT HOLDER:
PIRATE- VOTIVE HOLDER:
HEADLESS PIRATE- TEALIGHT HOLDER:
Last year wasn't the first year they came out but it was the first year I was aware of them! They also had some wedding themed Boney Bunch that I was not into so I didn't purchase any. My mistake! The bride and groom sets were (and still are) being sold on the bay (ebay) for ridiculous prices! By "ridiculous" I'm talking up to $100 for one piece that was originally just $19.99! Crazy, I know!
This year the collection was released August 7th (last Saturday). My friend and I were told by some of the sales associates that if we wanted to get our pick of the items, then we'd have to get there early! We arrived before the store opened and waited in line outside of the doors. Yes, there was a line! Thank God we were near the front! Here is what I bought once we got inside:
THE BONEY BUNCH VERSION OF AMERICAN GOTHIC- VOTIVE HOLDER:
LAST CALL- VOTIVE HOLDER:
NEWLY DEADS- VOTIVE HOLDER:
I really wish I had gotten the Santa Boney Bunch guy, seeing that he is now sold out online! If he is in the store the next time I'm there, I'll grab him. I also got a few other Yankee Candle items but I just wanted to show you my Boney Bunch collection!
What do you think? Is it worth all the fuss? I just LOVE them!
Milan and Vanaily- Awww but they are so cute! I like them because they are the very opposite of intimidating as far as Halloween decorations go!
Halifax- Last year when I ordered the Coffin man from the website, they accidentally sent me 2! I gave my extra to my friend though... :)
Dovey- Me too! I got the American Gothic couple because they are the Boney Bunch version of Grant Wood's American Gothic painting... he is from Iowa and so am I! I just HAD to have it! I didn't buy any Halloween scents but they were giving the small jars away free with purchase. I did get some of the new fall fragrances though! Apple Cider... yum!
Megan- Thanks! It's the ONLY holidy collection I have though :) I wish it were acceptable to set out Halloween decorations 3 months early like it is Christmas stuff! (Not that I'd ever set any decos out that early...) I hate when stores start setting up Christmas trees when Halloween costumes are still for sale!
Heather- How fun! Not many people decorate too much for Halloween... It's my favorite holiday! I love the colors (black, orange, lime green, and purple) and the fact that it is in my favorite season: Fall! BTW, my favorite scent from last year was definitely Cider Web!!
Delaynee- Oh I know! They are great! :)
Myclumsyheart- He is so cute, huh? I love them all!
I think they are adorable! I wish I used votives or tealights. I'm always worried about the cats setting themselves on fire lol, so it's only an electric tart burner for me! I'm a little obsessed with tarts lol.
l0verlada- I'm obsessed with the tarts too (actually with just about anything Yankee Candle)! Every time tarts and votives are $1, I stock up! And then, I never end up using them!... Those darn cats! If they are the type to climb all over the place then I understand why you don't want an open flame! Haha
Soon as I saw you posted this I had to run to Yankee Candle, my boy and I are getting married on OCT 10th this year and we had to have the bride and groom with the cake one for our wedding cake topper and keepsake. I love Yankee Candles Halloween and fall items this year.
