Letters from Lovers (of Queen B candles)

I love my new porcelain Babushka tea light candle holder that arrived today. from R Steinke

I love my new porcelain Babushka tea light candle holder that arrived today. I love watching the lovely pattern she makes on the wall and ceiling that slowly moves as the flame on the tea light gently flickers. I'm so happy I bought it. ... Thank you, Cate and all the worker bees, for your fast and friendly service and your wonderful products. You are a delight to do business with :)

La Rochere - Medium glass Cupcake tealight holderLa Rochere - Medium glass Cupcake tealight holder
This gorgeous La Rochere, glass cupcake tealight holder, partners perfectly with a Queen B pure beeswax candle.

In 1475, Simon de Thysac founded a glass-works at La Rochère, France.

In 2010, Queen B discovered the La Rochere bee range of glassware and fell in love!  I'm sure you will agree that for this quality of glassware, which continues to be made in France, their prices are extraordinarily reasonable.

This beautiful medium glass cupcake tealight holder is the middle size of the 3 cupcake holders which illuminate with a tealight casting stunning patterns through the fine fluting.
