- *We buy the big candles at Yankee Candle in the glass jar. They (Yankee
Candle) sell covers for the candles that nicely cover the top and keep tails
safely out and away from the flame. We've been using these and have no

who love candles like we do... yet want to keep our fur-kids safe!*

To leave the world a better place - whether by a healthy child, a garden
patch, or an improved social condition - that is to have succeeded. That
only one life breathed easier because you lived - that is success.
