DAMN is right about the candle description. I can’t stop reading all of the perfume descriptions, and hoo boy – is it getting hot in here?!
And I totally got those incense papers as stocking stuffers for my MIL and SIL. Pinching myself for not getting a package for myself. I’m pairing them with some weirdo match books.
Colin got MOTHERLAND… and loves it. Have you heard of Small Press Distribution (also a non-profit)? He subscribes it’s always interesting to see what they send – MOTHERLAND… was included in one of the mailings. http://www.spdbooks.org/.
And I just reserved PERSIANA and NOTES… from the library. Thanks for the recommendation!
Elizabeth- Thanks, that means a lot coming from you.
Marlena- They are SO GOOD at writing those descriptions, it kills me. And I can honestly say that the scents always live up to the fantasy for me. Thanks for the SPD link, I am excited to check them out.
Olga- I am trying to remain positive. ; )
There are a lot of holiday gift guides circulating right now but I can honestly say that I loved everything on this diverse list! I’ve got an enormous Mexican mortar and pestle that is such a work out to use so I will add the one you recommend to my xmas list. Happy holidays!
Love your gift list. I just ordered 3 People to Kill sketch books. I think they are hilarious! I can’t wait to give a couple away as gifts, and of course keep one for myself. I’ll be sure to leave it on the coffee table where I can glance over every now and then and have a good laugh! Kiyo
I’ve zeroed in on the Milton Brook mortar & pestle too, Tim, but SIZE. What SIZE did you buy??? Size matters :o)! With baited breath I wait. ps LOVE the sad rainbow/droopy zebra plate/black raspberry bowls/50 Shades Of Grey Spoon!!!
The spice blend of La Boite looks interesting enough to try, but I’ve not come across this brand at this side of the Atlantic. On the other hand, in France they have Olivier Roellinger. Only to stock up on Roellinger spices is worth a visit to France.
