Oh, Semperfigal, congratulations on your 2 little angels & the ones on the way! What fun you will have with all these little girls! It seems they already have membership in the Future Rosegirls Addicts of America Club! What a great start!

The Innocence is great! It's almost chase-you-outta-the-house-strong too! I usually end up blowing out the tealight for a while & relighting it later. Violet Romance has a baby powder note too. It's a very beautiful, soft scent & one of the longest-lasting I've ever found. It always lasts 3-4 days for me. I use tealight melters, so I don't have it going the whole time, but it is a scent that just won't quit. Usually 2-3 days in an average room, then another day in the bathroom to squeak out every last drop of scent.

Forgot to post my scents!

Woke up with a major headache the other day, so it's been Lavender Basil till today. It's very soothing & is one of the few scents that takes the edge off for me.

Today, we had Lasso going for DH. He just went to a casino with his one brother, so I might switch back & finish the Lavender Basil & "save" the rest of the Lasso for when he gets home.

I am out of the loop. Have been on a short get-away since Thursday. BUT...I took my melter with me. I melted Pink Sugar/VBN chunk heart tart, Sweet Lemon Confection/7 Up Pound Cake chunk tart cups, and Scentipede you will never in a million years guess the 3rd scent so I will tell you....CREME BRULEE...ah it was a great trip.

Semperfigal congratulations on the grand babies. Took me back about 35 years. My daughter weighed in at 5lb 11 oz when we took her home, but she was full term. So tiny and such a joy and I knew at that moment what unconditional love really was.

It is good to be back with all of you and hello to all the new members. So glad you are here and are enjoying Kathy's wonderful creations. She is magic. I have an order waiting at the post office and I am so excited. But due to the holiday won't get to inhale until Tuesday. Sad

Welcome back Slpit! Glad you had a nice get-away,
those are always so nice and relaxing. LOL on the
Creme Brulee! You are too funny! Hmmm, what scent
would I take with me if I were on a get-away.....I think
it would have to be Mood Sweet Craving!!

This morning I am melting Apple Pumpkin and in another room,
Berry Euporia! Oh, and in the office, Lemon Curd/Birthday Cake.

Happy Labor day everyone!!

Today's scent is simple and straight forward and pure...Fresh Cut Roses

Welcome home slpit! It's great to get away, and a great idea to take along your melter and some of your faves, hotel rooms can always use some air freshning! I spent the holiday, with "the girls" they are changing daily! Way too sweet, I could hold them all day! I worked out in my rose garden early this morning, it smelled heavenly! Melting Jasmine with Honeysuckle dreams this afternoon, wanted to savor that garden smell! Making strawberry butter and baking homemade bread in clay flowerpots for early supper tonight! We are grilling out, invited the new parents over for supper. Really it's just an excuse to visit with the babies again! lol Everyone get outside for a while after supper and enjoy a beautiful sunset with someone you love too!

Thanks for the welcome back Smile

Yesterday I did melt the Creme Brulee/Blueberry Cobbler in my living area and it is divine. The blueberry is such a true scent. I also tried the Honey Patchouli in my computer room and it was exceptional. The patchouli was not hidden by anything overly sweet and came through nicely with just a hint of sweet. I put them on about 2 PM and they went for 24 hours and there was still scent. Now that is some kind of scents cheers

Even though there was still scent I decided to put on 2 more today from my order. The first is just the straight Sweet lemon Confection. Oh my...this is good and the tartness still comes through. These fluted tarts are good sized so i decided to cut in half and divide between the rooms 2 melters. The scnet is now filling my living room and kitchen. Back here in the comp room I decided to try the sample of Chocolate Orange and it is divine. Both notes are very evident. I like the fact that the tartness of the orange comes through. The chocolate is a sweeter type to my nose (which I like) and the orange just blends perfectly. I may just have to get me some orange sherbet and put some chocolate syrup on it. I am craving the flavors. Cool

Hi everyone!

Today I'm metling Cozy Comfort and it's forcing me to stop
cleaning and organizing, and just relax and "be!" I'm also
in the mood for something cranberry! Do I dare bust out the
Cranberry Lodge? I think so!!

Todays melts are Pomegranate in the LR area. This is delicious, being both tart and sweet at the same time and smells exactly like a just tapped pomegranate...the throw is also big as it has totally enveloped my living room and kitchen in a very short time. Back here in the comp room it is Sweet lemon Confection. For some reason I just cannot get enough of this wonderful tart lemon scent with a little zing of sweetness. drunken Amazing

Today I'm melting Mulberry with Honeydew Berry upstairs and downstairs Spiced Cranberry with Moods Sweet Craving. Smells fresh and fruity, as a result I'm in a cleaning mood! Yeah! Started in the Kitchen, moved to the Family Room and just finished up in our Bedroom. Time to start supper now, gotta be something quick, grandson has Cub Scout's tonight and Grandpa was invited to go along! Guess I will be in control of the remote tonight! Laughing

I cannot wait to get my order from Kathy. All of your scent reviews sound so wonderful. I have been out of Kathy's stuff for a while. Once I get my order, I will give some reviews of the scents I ordered.

Hope you all have a good night... Smile

Hi Semperfigal! LOL on the "control of the remote!" My hubby
is a major surfer and oftentimes, he switches so much, that he
forgets what we were watching in the first place, resulting in
missing part of the show! Ahh, men and their remotes!

Now I am melting Breeze in the Keys/Funky Monkey! Man, this
is one refreshing, tropical scent! This one has me
organizing a closet which has turned into "the Brittle Closet"
- oh my gosh! You guys, seriously, I have a brittle problem!
I'd been stashing here and there and everywhere and finally
needed to get it all in one spot so I could find the scents
I'm in the mood for. So I feel good to have it all in one
spot now. Now I have to find room for the other stuff that
won't fit in the closet now - LOL! The Brittle took over!!

Oh Scentipede that is "over the top" Rosegirls dedication! A closet dedicated to brittle, I feel better now! To think I was worried that I had a corner in the back bedroom covered with bakery bags of brittle, and two end tables loaded down. I thought maybe I might have a problem, but now I feel alot better, I mean I don't have a closet full yet! LOL! Tonite it's Bun In The Oven in the kitchen and Pink Sugar with Vanilla Bean Noel in the Bedroom. DH is watching Michael Jordan's induction into the Hall of Fame, so the remote is not likely to change hands tonight! Mooncoon hope your order arrives soon, we'll be glad to hear how you like your new " stuff"! I love trying new scents, the Creme Brulee is to die for! I'm glad Slpit turned me on to it! Hope you find a new fave too!

WOW!!! Ijust think we may have another Creme Brulee addict in Semperfigal. It is just THE BEST

Tonight I dug into my old stash of Rosegirls. You know, the ones you say you will never melt because there will be no more. That is the way I feel about Kathy's Amish Quilt. Hers was the best of all that were made. I have a small amount left and ration it out. This is several years old as I got it when she first started making brittle and could never get enough. It is still just great. I am relishing this evening.

have a super weekend everyone.

Oh Slpit -- Amish Quilt is a classic and one of the first ones
I tried as well. I have a few squares of that one and am savoring
them as well. I am stunned at how long Kathy's products last.
Remember when she did the soycups? I have quite a few left and
they are as strong as if they were poured yesterday. I even have
a few of the clamshells! I really, really loved the clams!

Semperfigal -- I'm glad to hear you have a ton of product too!
It's been a few years since I discovered RG and my goal was to
always try everything Kathy made and it has taken me just as
long to figure out I'll never catch up, but it sure is fun
trying!! I do keep the bakery bags, but most of my RG product
is stored in Gladware! I mark on the sides and top with a big
Sharpie the scent name and yes, those can take up a lot of
room, hence the need for the closet! I've even gone to the dollar
store and gotten some cheapie but good storage containers and
as long as the seal is tight, everything stores just right!
Then, I stack all my gladware according to COLOR! I don't know,
there's got to be a name for this, like R-G-eye-ti-cus! LOL!

let's see if i have this right!!! I am referring to all of us.

We like to try new scents, but we hoard and then order some of the same scents over and over cause they may be gone. We classify them into scent groups, sniffing over and over as we do this, then we put them in their own containers and then we assign them to their own little room so we will know where they are after we carefully label them (I too have a closet and other places). And now that they are organized we start sniffing again.

I think they call this Obsessive Compulsive lol!

Today it's Sweet Kisses for me! This one has berries and
cantalope in it and it is so refreshing! Then it's Macintosh
Madness upstairs and it's so real, it makes my mouth water!

Hope you're all having fun melting today Smile

Today's Melting Menu includes Blackberry Jam Buttercookie with Vanilla Hazelnut Mocha, and Twigs & Berries with Vanilla Oak. Smelling quite yummy, this morning as I pour myself that 2nd cup of joe! It's a cool morning and I'm getting that Fall Scent urge so I may switchout tonite to some of my faves from Kathy's Fall Collection. By the way I've been meaning to ask, what does Amish Quilt smell like? Sounds interesting!

69 Re: What'cha Meltin'? on Mon Sep 14, 2009 2:37 pm

Amish Quilt is a little hard to describe. Have you ever tried Celtic Moon or Celtic Moon Spice. It is a little like that one. Nice spices with cinnamon but not overly so...a nice long lasting scent. It has cinnamon, clove, allspice, sugar & hints of nutmeg..all pulled together with an undertone of vanilla. I can never get enough.

Thanks Slpit, sounds delicious! I adore Celtic Moon! Have you tried Spiced Pumpkin with Creme Brulee? I stumbled across this freebie in my stash and can't wait to give this one a try! Not melting till tonight, but will follow up with you then.

Hi all!

Tonight it's a woodsy night! Got Rocky Mountain sharing the floor
with Frank & Myhrr! It's so dreamy. Upstairs I still have
my Funky Monkey/Breeze in the Keys going strong. Hubby's watching
football in another room and I have Pink Sugar going - LOL! I know
it's not manly, but he's not complaining! Hope you're all having
a great start to what seems to be an early approaching fall Laughing

Am in my apple and spice type scents. So starting off the day with Birthday Cake/Apple Squares chunk tarts. House should really smell good when I get home.

Semperfigal you are making me want my creme brulee. I think I might try blending that with the Celtic Moon. I think that would be awesome.

Have a great day sunny

Hey Slpit! My meltin' frenzy today is Creme Brulee!!! So much talk about it and I had to break it out. I know why you love it so much, it is very, very good. Halfway thru the day, I mixed a square of Fruit Slice in it! WOW! If you have the fruit slices, you have to try this blend, it's absolutely wonderful! Everyone at work loved it!

Thanks for reminding me how awesome that one is.

Ugh, what a time I've had! Several days ago I was in the cellar, not more than 15 min., when part of the ceiling & insulation came down & water came pouring through. I went upstairs & found the master bathroom filled with water. It was flowing into the linen closet & bedroom. Water was blasting toward the ceiling like a geyser & raining back down so hard that I couldn't even see where it was coming from. It looked like a scene from a movie! I knew there was a knob under the toilet tank & I turned it off. It really looked like the water was coming from the ceiling & I didn't think turning the knob would work, but luckily, it did. The thing that connects the pipe to the bottom of the toilet tank had a plastic screw-on connector & it had turned brittle & snapped. The whole time I kept thinking, "OMG, what if the water gets into the electrical system & starts a fire!" Leave it to me to be thinking of fire when I'm practically drowning! LOL

It was late & DH had been out of state, so I had to wait till the next day to get help. My one BIL came over & fixed it. He showed me where my shut off valves are too. The replacement part was only $4. When DH got home on Sat., I had him check every one of these things in the house.

So, here's a good lesson: make sure you all know where all your shut-off valves are & check the connectors under your toilets, sinks, washing machine. Not sure about a dishwasher as I never had one. If the plastic part is old or looks brittle, replace it; it's cheap & will save you from having a royal mess, especially if you're out of the house for several hours a day. You wouldn't believe how much water came through that pipe in just a few minutes! DH is replacing all of these connectors with ones that have the metal screw-ons; they are the same price.

On a good note, most of my spring cleaning is now done & alot of junk I was holding onto in the cellar is gone. Nothing motivates like a boatload of water in the house!
Oh, you can laugh. Now that it's over I can imagine how hilarious it must have looked, especially as frantic as I was. I just hope it doesn't get moldy under the floor & there's 1 wall DH might have to replace, as the drywall does not seem to want to completely dry. We didn't call the insurance co.; afraid our premiums would go up more than it would cost to fix a few things ourselves.
So, I didn't get to melt much lately. I wanted to get the melters empty, cleaned up, & ready for my big order, but the "waterworks" ruined my plan. I only managed to get 5 melters empty & have been melting small amounts from my order so I can leave accurate feedback asap. I'm just melting enough of each in different rooms to get a feel for each scent. I just have a few more to go. After I'm done leaving feedback, I'll go back & melt each scent "properly" & then give a review. I'm hoping to take 1 or 2 days & just rest & melt, as I am totally exhausted right down to my very soul from all the excitement around here.
I just wanted to check in here quick & let you know what's been going on. Didn't want you to think DH had killed me. LOL He doesn't know how many bags I ordered! I've really been missing you all & things should be back to normal in a day or 2. Then I'll be back & really catch up.

Oh, firefly that is terrible. Many, many years ago a major pipe broke in the neighborhood we were living in and it was terrible. Ours was confined to the basement but it was deep. I am glad you are OK and able to get things taken care of. Be on the watch for mold as that can be a real issue.

Will wait until I get home from work to melt. My allergy ridden nose isn't up to par this morning.
