 Does anything, scent and / or product-wise, catch your eye from the Haus of Gloi summer drop? (https://www.hausofgloi.com/collections/summer) [you're free to pick stuff NOT from Summer as well, of course! ;) ] Aestas! and Marshmallow Rose. I would love the oil or soap in either of those scents.  Ooh, or the foaming bubble scrubs!

Yes, the rumors are true- I'll be in Paris this summer! Tell me up to five things you'd be happy to get from there, including any specific teas from Dammann Freres, my favorite french tea shop! (https://www.dammann.fr/en/#)  You are speaking my language!  I would love pins from France, crafts, interesting scents/perfumes, and especially teas.  The Tisane Bali, Tisane des Merveilles, Tisane du Roy, L'heure Douce have my mouth watering!





I recently discovered Khamila Luna and plan to place an order soon to get a present for my roommate. Is there anything you'd like from them? Those foaming scrubs look interesting, especially the mango and coconut.  I would also be open to any of the soaps except the peach ring one (I had an unfortunate experience when I was a teen, where I was eating peach rings, eating pasta, and drinking wine.  It ended with me unexpectedly vomiting all over myself, so I associate peach rings and their smell with that incident.)


is there any small gift from mother nature that you'd like me see if I can source for you from old forests?  Oh, I would love anything wildcrafted, from salves to oils, especially anything to do with healing inflammation, pain, headaches, cramps, or inducing dreams or meditative states.


do you wear rings on all your fingers? how about a range smallest to largest? I wear them rarely, and only on my middle fingers (and sometimes on my pointer fingers/thumbs when I go out dancing.  I think I range from 7-9.


If your Sprite were to gift you magical items or workings... a) Would you be interested in that? b) If so, what intention(s) would you appreciate most? Absolutely!  I would love TAL oils, spiritual items, feathers, stones, high-vibration items, etc. I would love road openings, wealth/gains, creativity, imagination, meditation, dreams, and spiritual awakening


Would you be interested in a set of (rpg) dice? If so, what colors/aesthetic? I'd make room for some slime green sparkly iridescent dice.  


What's your favorite creature? Kelpie, kitsune, bakeneko (and various yokai).  Demon spirits or entities like Baba Yaga speak to me.  And anything that relates to raven, crow, or cat.


Do you like reading comics? If you haven't really read 'em, would you be interested in receiving a few that match your book genre preferences? I do, especially interesting graphic novels.  I'm more of a Dark Horse or indie comic label kind of gal. 


I'm headed to Puerto Rico in July - anything particularly interesting you would like from there? Yes!  Foods, flags, anything coqui frog related, anything related to the culture, especially Taino, would be treasured.  My husband's family is in part from Puerto Rico and Taino, but he's never been and he feels sadly disconnected from him culture.  


Would you be interested in receiving a small bottle of home infused whiskey aged from commercially produced moonshine? Any particular flavors you might enjoy (examples include orange chai or cinnamon chocolate or hot peppers)? Sure!  No chai or hot pepper, but berry, cherry, mints, citrus, or unusual flavors like cactus and basil would be fun.


Would you be interested in homemade shortbread that fits your flavor preferences? If you can make it with cassava or tapioca flour, sure. 





If your bday is during the swap, how are you planning to celebrate?  Nope, but my husband's birthday is the 21st and our 14 year wedding anniversary is the 28th.  


Likewise, how do you celebrate relevant spiritual holidays in this time period? I celebrate Pride and the summer solstice.  


Anything you want from the UK?  Yesss!  I would love tea from Harrods or other earl grey blends from smaller shops.  Bring on the enamel pins and patches from various historic sites.  I would love some of those awesome Scottish biscuits (for Tony) as well.  


Seeds, y/n? Totally, yes.


Are you interested in skincare/shampoo/conditioner? Sure, but more natural.  No SLS, parabens, pthalates.


Are you interested in tights? If so, what thickness, style, and size?  Sure.  I'm usually a C/Q because I have big hips and thick thighs.  I love goth-themed tights (although no pentagrams or satanic imagery as that's not my flavor of goth).


Do you use tarot decks? Would you like to receive more - and if so, can you list the ones you already have? I have 5 at the moment.  I would love an oracle deck, though. 


What do you think of the art on this website? https://www.printisdead.co.uk/ Okay, all the stationary and stickers, please. Lol, any here would be amazing.  They are absolutely my aesthetic. 


Is loose leaf tea good, or do you prefer bagged? Loose leaf!


I make arm warmers.  I make them from sweaters I thrifted.  They can be all one color, or stripes of different colors.  They can be long, to the elbows, or shorter.

If you would like a pair, tell me your favorite colors.  Solids are more generally elegant, Stripes can be as wildly funky as you wish.  Long?  Short?  Cashmere?  Tell me your fingerless mitts arm warmer dreams. If you can somehow make fishnet/netting/ripped style ones in black, yes.  Just no angora or wool. 




PBSW Summer collection is live!!!  Anything catch your eye? Journey in Satchidananda Hot Process Soap




It's farmers market season in town and I have loads of lovely local artisans to shop from. Would you be interested in items from any of the following?

The Rod Homestead (I love this one I helped fund her commercial kitchen)  Truffle salt would be nice. 


Working Class Coffee No


Philly Nuts No, although if you want to get Tony something, he loves flavored nuts.


222 Creations No


Carol's Epiphany No





I am learning to do embroidery. Would you possibly like a simple hand embroidered piece? Sure!


If you would like this is there a simple favorite flower or summer symbol, like a bee? A thistle, dead rose, a bat, cat, or crow!


What kind of sprite would you prefer? A ninja or to know the ID right away? I would love a reveal at the end, but I'm open.




Are you ok with shunga label art (bpal? Absolutely.


I dye yarn. Is custom yarn of interest to you? No thank you.  

- If so, colors? I have various weights of wool, sport and dk cotton, cotton thread in 3/2 and 5/2, and light fingering weight bamboo rayon that dyes like a dream

My European travels are expanding! Anything you want from Portugal or Berlin???  Yesss!  Teas, spices, enamel pins and patches, art books, small art pieces or crafts that are local.  ❤️



My friend makes cool art with garbage, is there anything here you might like?  No thank you.





Would you like items related to your astrological sign and if so what is it?  Perhaps if you can get into the more esoteric stuff about my houses.  I'm Aquarius Sun, Virgo Moon, Sagittarius Rising, Aquarius Mercury, Capricorn Venus, Aquarius Mars, Libra Jupiter, Libra Saturn, Scorpio Uranus, Sagittarius Neptune, Libra Pluto, Lilith Scorpio, Leo N Node.  House 1 is ASC Sagittarius,  II is Capricorn, III is Pisces, IV is Aries, V and VI are Taurus, VII is Gemini, VIII is Cancer, IX is Virgo, X is Libra, and XI and XII are Scorpio.  I don't really know much about my houses or Lilith/Nodes.  I'm not sure about squares or anything like that. 




what do you think of plushies?  Sure, especially evil, gothic, or pissy/annoyed kitty types. 


Are there any Korean or Japanese food/craft/self-care items you would be interested in in receiving? All the things?  Tea, tea, more tea.  Maybe some masks, a delicious skin cream, sakura or matcha Japanese scents or lip balms, anything ume, any Japanese or Korean crafts.  You seriously can't go wrong here.  


Is there anything for your garden or houseplants that you need, or would like (tiny, hand thrown cachepot for a prized astrophytum, etc.), or are you proudly black thumb and shun any plant that isn't resin? I'd love some more succulent starts.  


How many books is too many books?  Infinity +1?  You are asking the wrong person.  I have 60 books sitting on my floor for a "to read" pile, but I gladly welcome more.  I try to go through 50-80 a year, so I am always looking for new books.
