About Us

Calico Rose Candles came about in 2001, as a result of having three smelly dogs in the house and getting really tired of spending too much money on "good" candles that only emptied my wallet. After throwing out several partially burned, poorly scented candles,
I decided enough was enough. How tough could it be, really, to make a candle!? I mean, it isn't rocket science! Little did I know that there actually is quite a bit of science to it. The next two years were spent crafting a product that I would be proud to have my name associated with. A lot of wax was ruined in the process too! 
Today my secret candle 'recipe' is still one of a kind, and I am proud to put my label on each and every product I make. I want to make certain that everyone walks away with my products, having a smile on their face. I stand behind my products 100%. If you're not satisfied with any product we produce, ever, let us know. We'll replace it or refund your money. Period. That is my promise to you. I've always stood by it and I always will. 
Calico Rose began in a garage in Nebraska, but due to the cold Nebraska winters, we relocated to our little ranch in Lampasas, Texas. 

This photo is the original house built on our ranch over 100 years ago.  When we bought the ranch we didn't know what to do with it. 
It was too old to want to do too much to fix it up,
but too rich in history, not to mention sturdy,
to want to tear it down. 
We have slowly begun to restore this old two-room home, that has witnessed the raising of 11 children (that we know of). Today it is a much-beloved home to Calico Rose Crafts. The history and charm of this humble dwelling is enchanting, and the interior of this stubborn old piece of Texas history is beginning to tell her tales.
