Friday Friends - Local Makers - Tanaza Soy Candles

Happy Friday lovely Maddabling readers - did you have a nice Easter Break? We were fortunate that there were a couple of fantastic sculpture exhibitions in our local area over the Easter Weekend - I blogged about one earlier this week called "Sculpture in the Harbour - Tidelines" and we also caught "Art in the Park" which I will share in a separate blog post this weekend. 

This week it is my absolute pleasure to introduce to you today's Friday Friend - meet Tania - a local maker and the face behind Tanaza Soy Candles
I first had the pleasure of "sampling" one of the Tanaza candles at Cloud Nine Spa Chalets last year - they are really really lovely products! I love to support local makers and crafty folk and I can promise you that there are Tanaza candles in the Maddabling household, and that they smell simply delicious! This one in the frosted jar is "Mojito" (what's not to love?)
and these two little travel tins of Lime Cilantra and Lemon Myrtle freshened up our hotel room beautifully on a recent trip away. 
Ok lovely readers, time for you to sit back, relax and take a virtual whiff of all the loveliness contained in The  Tale of Tanaza Soy Candles. Have a lovely relaxing weekend and have fun doing whatever it is you are doing xo
