Melt’s Easter Competition – and Mothers Day competition winner


Working in the beautiful Ribble Valley countryside as we do, there has been much talk of melt’s menagerie over the years. Llamas, geese, chickens, Shetland ponies (very naughty), rabbits galore and sparrowhawks in the workshop – they add humour and rhythm to our daily lives.

But when “Mrs. Black” (resident rabbit and broccoli aficionado) hopped into our photoshoot last month – obligingly sporting melt’s colours – it was too good an opportunity to miss. So, here she is….endearingly fronting our Easter campaign.

For our 3rd #acandleisnotjustforchristmas competition, we’d simply like you to give us a caption bubble for Mrs. Black.

To enter:

  1. Simply come up with a witty and/or clever caption to go with the image below.
  2. And leave your caption in the comments section at the bottom of this post.


The winner will be announced on Monday 14th April and will receive a hamper of their favourite handmade candles to the value of £135.

To find out if you were the lucky winner of our Mothers Day competition – please follow the link to our blog post here.

Thank you to all of you for the continued good fun…

Kindest regards

From all at melt x
