Miss Spink and Miss Forcible lived in the flat below Coraline’s, on the ground floor. They were both old and round, and they lived in their flat with a number of ageing Highland terriers who had names like Hamish and Andrew and Jock. Once upon a time Miss Spink and Miss Forcible had been actresses, as Miss Spink told Coraline the first time she met her.
“You see, Caroline,” Miss Spink said, getting Coraline’s name wrong, “both myself and Miss Forcible were famous actresses, in our time. We trod the boards, luvvy. Oh, don’t let Hamish eat the fruitcake, or he’ll be up all night with his tummy.”
• All candles are hand poured and made using the highest quality soy wax, fragrances and inks. • Soy wax is environmentally friendly and burns cleaner than other waxes. It is also easy to clean in case you would like to keep the tin. • Frosting/bloom may occur. This is perfectly natural for soy candles and does not affect the scent or burn time in any way. Frosting is merely an indicator of natural soy wax. • Each candle is made in small batches so there may be very minor variations in color and/or scent. • Our candles use zinc and lead free cotton wicks, all natural soy wax, and only the finest Phthalate-free fragrances. We load them up with the maximum amount of fragrance for both a strong hot and cold throw.
