Lake Monona
Madison, Wisconsin

Hooray, it's spring!

Breezes are flowery,
and red robins flock.
Bikers greet joggers,
and boats leave their docks.
"Monona" feels cold,
but the spirit is hot!
Beach candles glowing
can "lift" you a lot.

This unique candle, one in a series of SEASONS IN THE SAND, is specific to a place and season. Each candle is made one at a time with a little sunshine.

Burn time is approximately 45-50 hours, providing wick is trimmed to 1/4 before each burn.

Price includes cellophane bag with natural twine and informational card. Pastel satin ribbon can be substituted for the twine.

IMPORTANT INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:

FIRST BURN: It is important to burn candle for 2-3 hours, until a melted wax pool is visible across the entire candle top. If not, all future melt pools may not surpass the distance of the first melt pool, causing "tunneling" with wasted wax and poor burning performance.

TRIM wick, if longer than 1/4-inch tall, before each burn.

BURN no longer than 4 hours at a time.

NEVER leave a candle unattended. NEVER.
