Where heritage and traditions are a way of life........

Nestled in a quaint little town in Indiana there was a farmer, not just any farmer, a special farmer, my grandpa Harold.
Later, when he started his own family, his values and dedication were passed down from generation to generation.
There was never a moment in his children's lives that they didn't know how special they were.

The little girl, or the "poster child" for Hoosier Candle Company is my mom. She was the middle child.

Our thoughts on the Official Ram Trucks Super Bowl Commercial "Farmer"



Three years ago, I had a dream, I remembered growing up, walking fields with my Grandpa Harold.  I watched family home movies of "life on the farm" I listened as Grandpa read the farmer's almanac, talked crops, and prayed for rain.  I was taught to appreciate how a crop started as a seed, how it grew, how he nutured it, how he harvested it, and how thankful we should be for these blessings.  Three years ago, my dream, my vision, started with these memories.  Hoosier Candle Company is a tribute to all of the "Grandpa Harold's and Uncle Randy's" out there....the farmers in MY life...because I was fortunate to ride in combines, walk the fields, and be a part of a farmer's journey. So each candle is poured with love, filled with memories of why "God made farmers"

Layered soy candles for the seasons...limited time!

In late June I decided it was time to create something special...for all of our special customers...so what was meant to be a "treat" ended up creating a "branch" off of our existing soy candle line!  So....three pages later..filled with ideas..there is a plan!  Stay tuned for many wonderful things to come from Hoosier Candle Company.  Each month will bring something new!  Below is a picture of our "Tippecanoe, White & Blue" candle!  Three different colors...and scents!  We are sold out of these for this year!  We're now moving onto FALL scents!

Hoosier Candle Company Candle Tag....and our story behind it!

Pictured here: My Grandma Betty and my daughter Courtnee
A story worth sharing........

So most of you know that the little girl on our tag is my mom at age three, in my Grandpa Harold's field. Last summer many of my aunts, uncles and cousins were standing in my grandma's kitchen and one of my uncles asked...."Mom, what is the story behind this picture"

We all listened intently as my grandma told this story........


"Your dad thought I needed a camera, so for our first wedding anniversary he comes home with this camera. I was so upset with him, we didn't have the money for food, let alone that camera. He told me I needed to capture memories.....so I did. After I started taking pictures I just couldn't stop....which in the 50s was just unheard of.

On that paticular day Pet (my mom) was running around in her dress, like she always did, because she wore dresses everyday. What she NEVER did was go into the field, and especially in a dress because she was so paticular. I saw her in the field with dad, and I went in and grabbed my camera and snapped that picture. She was three years old."

That story, that memory, that day is such a treasure to me. My only regret is that I didn't get it on video. My grandma remembered that day....like it was yesterday. What my grandma was doing back then was unheard of...she was a "pioneer scrapbooker" each child in our family has their own organized, and dated photo album on the shelf at Grandma Betty's house. There's not a visit at her house that those books don't come out.
We used to laugh and so "enough Grandma with the pictures" and now we're saying "thank you Grandma for the memories"
I adore my Grandma Betty and she's a important part of my life and who I am today.....and much of my never ending motivation to succeed with my Hoosier Candle Company venture.
