Switch Witch questions & answers



I think this will make me current.  No idea why the formatting is so nuts- sorry.


Would you like anything from Future Primitive? (It's fine to mention OOS things) https://futureprimitivesoap.co.uk/

Four & 20 blackbirds or ghost - any product, they all sound lovely

Does anyone have a favorite horror movie that they love? Need a copy/DVD of? I love Edgar Allen Poe if you can suggest a film


Do you like smallish knitted stuff (hats, fingerless mittens, scarves, toys, etc. -- be specific!)?


Do any of these knitted items appeal to you?

Easy Fingerless Mittens- yes

Pfeilraupe Asymmetrical Scarf - yes

Odyssey Shawl - yes

Close to You scarf - yes

Rikke Slouch Hat - no

Simple Yet Effective Cowl- yes but not too tight

Knitted Pumpkins yes

Little Bear Stuffy no

How do you feel about thrift store finds (assuming they're in good condition and have been thoroughly cleaned before shipping)?  I love thrift stores & the things I find there


I may have bought several full size Rituel de Fille makeup items in a frenzy over their whole vibe. If I tested something once or twice (and it can be sanitized), would you be interested? Nope I'm a makeup coward


Are you interested in trying different skincare products from higher end, clean brands? Moisturizing products/ cleaners welcome


Any interest in anything from Torrid, noting their "fangirl" and Halloween collections are updated? I


What on the following list would you like to receive something related to (or have something donated to in your and Joni's honor?)
·         animal rescue - one of my favorite types of charities.  A big bag of kibble for a rescue - especially for pibbles.  Or kitties.
I'll be going to Seattle, London and Paris during this round- anything you'd love to have from any of these locations Tea from London! Assam or some interesting Earl Grey. Maldon  sea salt.
Paris- herbes de Provence or some other French spice blend


Is there anything you would particularly like from Japan? Stationary, bento supplies, a particular snack, etc. The fall flavors for kitkats this year are Chestnut, Sweet Potato and Apple Pie.
  Those kit kats sound amazing.  I would love to get better at bento ( I've played at it using a gladware plastic box)  


Thinking about really good natural food stores like Natural Grocers or Whole Foods, if you could have ANY bath and beauty or body care items, what would you love? Bath oil or moisturizing products.  I have super dry skin. 
Also what kind of treats, snacks, foods, condiments, bulk items, teas, housewares from the same natural food stores would you love? Assam tea is a fave.   Dark chocolate is a lovely treat.


Also, are there any particular sustainable kitchen or household items you would love to receive?  Something to use for lunch packing- trying to break my zip bag and other trash addiction.



Did anything catch your eye from the Liliths?
Would you like anything from Lush? I have not been in Lush in ages, so I'm not current with them, but anything lavendar based like Sleepy or vanilla based would be lovely


So, there's a Euro coin of some denomination coming out with Asterix on it for the 60th anniversary and, while I'm not a coin collector, I've loved Asterix since before I could read and therefore really want one or two of the coin just to have.  Is there anything kind of weird and niche about which you feel this way, fellow witchees? I love otters and have thought of finding the Scottish bank note with the otter.  No idea what the value is, I would hang it on the wall of my studio.



Do you have an Etsy/Goodreads/Amazon or anything else wishlist you’d like to share?

My etsy list was in my questionaire


And what’s your preferred wrist/necklace size? Necklace 20"  or longer chain or cord.  I rarely wear bracelets ( I catch it on everything)


Does anything from Bird & Blend take your fancy? I've never seen this company.  Rhubarb & custard or gingerbread chai.  The idea of infusing spirits with tea is really cool.

Knitting questions have have been asked, but how about wash cloths, anyone need any?  What colors??     Not much- I just made a few myself
 is there anything from World Market that tickles your fancy? They have the best chocolate coffee, but I think it's a Valentine's item.  Other than that, some fun Halloween decorations.  Something owl or raven related.   



There's a special thing happening over at Rituel de Fille this weekend, where some gorgeous makeup items are coming back for just a couple of days. I'll be placing an order Sunday or Monday- anything that might strike your fancy, either from the special sale or from the site in general? (https://ritueldefille.com) I wish I were better at makeup, but I'm just not.

How do you feel about tarot or oracle decks?  Would you be interested in any (for artwork or for mystical purposes)?  New or used?  I like decks.  I recently saw one that was glorious art nouveau. New or used is ok.  Cats or Fae would also be good motifs for me. 



Would pigment samples from companies like M.A.C. or Notoriously Morbid tickle your fancy? If so, what colors catch you eye? Not really, I'm honestly a makeup coward and wear very small amounts.

do you have a favourite saying or quote? First thing that came into my mind: That which does not kill us makes us stronger- of course picturing it with   a Klingon motif.  Yes I am a serious Star Trek nerd.


How do you feel about spicy foods, and where on the Scoville scale do you hit your limit?  I like spice with flavor, but not heat for heat's sake.  Not sure where I am on the Scoville scale.  I use cayenne quite a lot but I think that's the highest one. I love Hatch chilis when I can find them. 


How do you feel about coloring books, especially those pertaining to a personal interest or fandom?  I have several and find I don't use them like I thought I would



A few questions have been asked about knitted items--are crocheted equivalents acceptable?  (crocheted fingerless gloves, shawls, etc.)  Certainly crochet is just as welcome as knits

Any fiber issues? Mohair is fine if it's not right next to my skin ( shawl yes, armwarmers, no)


About the Weenies: please list what you've bought or are definitely purchasing for yourself *as well as* what you would like to possibly receive from someone else! 
I'm very curious about
The Shadowed Veil Perfume Oil, but not gutsy enough to blind bottle.  If you happen to have anything in the Dead Leaves series (especially the vanilla incense one) that needs rehoming, I would love that (any that do not have musk)
Dead Leaves and Chai Perfume Oil
Dead Leaves, Cacao, and Sandalwood Perfume Oil 
All Souls Perfume Oil
Dear Witchee, are you at all boozy?  Anywhere between hard cider to straight whisk(e)y?  And any interest in the "unusual" stuff? (unusual as in non-mainstream, local craft ciders or meads, regional fruit wines, experiments from local distilleries, etc) Yes please, that would be lovely.  I love pear things when I can find them.  Dark meads ( dark fruit like berries or currants) are yummy. Any whisk(e)y that  is not super Smokey/peaty  is welcome.  Bourbon is a wonderful thing. Whenever we travel we try all the locally made things.

Nail Polish: Do you need or want some?  If so, what colors and brands are you interested in? Nope.  My nails don't wear polish well.


Does anyone else do nail wraps? Nope


What about postcards? vintage Halloween or Witchy imagery

 Is anyone interested in anything from the Nocturne Alchemy Halloween release (or, presumably, anything else from the site)? I love Their vanilla & ambers.  From the Halloween line- Samhain, Halloween BASTET 2016, Halloween 2019 or 2020 


How do you feel about salt? I don’t mean, like, salted nuts or potato chips. I mean straight-up salt, like alder-smoked finishing salt or Hana Flake sea salt. It has been suggested that I have a salt problem ( hubby).  I would love to try any interesting salt.  I'm currently working on a jar of citrus blend salt & one with chili.

I am infamous for baking (shortbreads savory and sweet, poundcake, various cookies and bars), butter caramels (flavored or plain), and catnip.  Are any of these relevant to you or your household?  My furbabies would love to taste  your catnip.  We love shortbread and would love to try any flavors.  Something to nibble  with a London Fog latte perhaps?


Do you like to cook and do you need/want any spices for such pursuits? I love to cook & am vegetarian.  I've recently been playing with ground chilis that are single kind ( as opposed to blended chili powders) to see all the different flavors ( not the scary hot ones though)


Would you wear any of these? 

Fern , NuadaManannanDuleek Abbey  or an infinity scarf or tube cowl tall enough for a hood (like this scarf or this cowl for shape example)?
Yes I would be thrilled, especially with Duleek- I saw someone wearing one the other day ( at Ren Fest) & was utterly charmed.


Do you have any utilitarian needs for everyday life? Things that would help or that you've been needing or wanting for work or whatever? The only thing that comes to mind is lunchbox type containers that are not trash waiting to happen- I'm trying to break my zip bag addiction and create less trash.


What kind of vegan snacks do you like? And vegan chocolate...favorites? My favorite vegan snack is nuts, especially deeply roasted spiced ones.  Many dark chocolates are vegan, & dark is my fave chocolate especially with nuts or orange.
