JULIE DIXON - OWNER/CREATOR
Hey lovelies! I'm Julie & I am the owner & creator of Countryside Treasures.
I'm a pet mama of six cats, two parrots, twelve free-range chickens, our purebred Jack Russell; Khaleesi & a spouse to a loving, supportive man who also operates our home-based small engine repair shop.
I think I developed an obsession with beeswax candles when I heard that they had natural, air purifying properties.
I would always have them lit throughout my home & found that they helped ease my symptoms of asthma & allergies, where no other candle could.
As my obsession grew, I sourced out local beeswax & experimented with candle & wax melt making.
At first, my labels were educational & "cute", then I experienced some shit in life & my humor started down a path of its own.
I have since expanded my creations to lip balms, coffee mugs & other handmade gifts from Kingston, Ontario & beyond.
My ideal day is one where I am drinking coffee in my living room, with my candle burning & my lips moist.
Hope we are a little bit the same.
Follow along our journey as we struggle, grow, love & fight! ♡ xoxo
