So, what's the story with "1706?"

In 1706, a small group of Spanish settlers established the Villa de San Felipe de Albuquerque, making it one of the oldest European settlements in what is now the United States. The city's name was derived from the Duke of Alburquerque, who was viceroy of New Spain at the time. Albuquerque quickly grew into an important trade center and became the capital of New Mexico over a century later.

Hi, I'm Lindsey!

I'm so glad you're here! I started this journey in 2020 when our world was on hold. I found myself with a lot of free time so I picked up a few hobbies and candlemaking and pressing florals were my favorite! I am an avid candle lover and truly believe you can never have too many flowers in your home.

I am so excited to share what I've made with you!
