What store would that be, and what would you look like? Oh no. I'm so simple! I'd probably pick a nice pair of skinny jeans that actually fit in all the right places, a cute tee-shirt (like from Threadless), and a pair of checkered vans. I am SO SIMPLE.

What about things like spice mixes (homemade, or Penzey's for example) I enjoy spices and anything mushroom or owl themed would be cool. Do you like cute, seasonal or fluffy PJ bottoms? Like they sell at Target, Old Navy (they have had cute Halloween ones!) If so, what size do you wear? Since I work from home right now - I live in pajamas. I'm a Large. What kind of chocolate do you like? Nuts, no nuts, white,dark, etc? I don't like white chocolate, mint, or fruit flavored. I'm kind of in love with Ritter Sport Butter Biscuit - but it's kind of hard to find. Marzipan is gross. Oh and Fifth Avenue Bars are my first love. I like nuts! I live near a Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and Penzeys! What does your little heart desire from any or all of these places? I live close enough to a Trader Joe's. I just gave you $20 and sent you into a "has everything" store ala Walmart and told you that you have to come out having spent it all, and none of it on anything you need. What would you buy?

Ok! If your witch is a knitter, crocheter or sewer, is there a particular type of garment you would love to receive (hat, scarf, wrap, cowl, socks, fingerless gloves, arm warmers etc)? I think it would be super awesome to receive a pair of socks.

No. How would you feel about a taste of (insert witch location here) box? Sure! Since it's been mentioned several times, and I've also offered to nacho witch some, would you you like to receive wild rice and or maple syrup? I promise to include recipe ideas with the wild rice. I have more maple syrup in my fridge than I know what to do with.

No roobios!! Do you Ravelry? And if so, what's your handle over there? Would you be interested in gift patterns from your queue? No. I live near this very cool Retro store (retrodrygoods.com) (you can order online too) - are there things from it that would make you squee if your witch sent them? That store looks awesome!!

What about anything from Photojojo? I own a DSLR but am not interested. Are you musically inclined? Do you play an instrument or sing? If so, what? No. Does anyone else like collector Barbies? No, but I really like the Monster High dolls. I'm having a hard time not buying Clawdeen Wolf and Goulia Phelps. I already own Frankie Stein and Draculaura.

I love foody stuff, as long as it's not cloying and nothing with buttercream! I also love linen and lavender! Is there a quote (or lyric or part of a poem) that really resonates with you or is your favorite? I will always love Pablo Neruda's Sonnet XVII. I do not love you as if you were a salt rose, or topaz or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off. I love you as certain dark things are to be loved, in secret, between the shadow and the soul. I love you as the plant that never blooms but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers; thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance, risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body. I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where. I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride; So I love you because I know no other way than this: where I does not exist, nor you, so close that your hand on my chest is my hand, so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep. Do you like knitted goodies? If so, what would you like and what colors? Yes! I'd love a pair of knitted fingerless gloves and a hat like this. I can't knit and both things are "things I really want but haven't gotten around to buying, maybe later" and it just doesn't happen.

Do you have an E-reader/iPad/something similar that you need a cover/case for? No. Witchee, do you use a PC or a Mac? PC Do you have wishlists for non-BPAL e-tailers?

How would you like to receive some of your Witch's favorite recipes, tailored to your likes/dietary restrictions? And specific wants? Sure, as long as it's healthy and includes veggies (no mushrooms!). Also, crockpot recipes would be awesome! Do you need any boxes to store your smellies in? What would you store in said hypothetical box--imps, bottles, supplies, all of the above? Nope, I've got that covered. Muppets: yea or nay? Yeah!

How much do you like jewelry? Like, if you were to get a shit ton of it during the round, how excited would you be? I like jewelry, I don't wear a ton of it though... I do really really love bracelets. I'd be super mega excited if I received bracelets and a ton of em! LOL Do you like to burn incense? If so, what are your favorite kinds...sticks? cones? resins? What are your favorite scents? I prefer cones but am curious about resins! I don't have any favorite scents though. Notice a theme? I like EVERYTHING and can't narrow anything down to one favorite! No strong florals? Gift Cards? Barnes and Noble, Amazon, Target When you are having a really rough day, what do you like to do/have to make it a little brighter? I love crawling under a fuzzy blanket and cuddling with my puppies. Fred and Jedi make everything better! If you RP, tabletop, forum, or otherwise... Do you have any original characters you'd like to see art of? If so, please give information! Even if it's a link to a web page or a profile or picture! Not specifically...

If you have a pet, would he/she/they like to receive a treat or a toy as a gift? Does your pet have any dietary restrictions or other preferences w.r.t. said treat? I'd rather not receive anything for them. They can only have the tough kongs, and Fred's diet is extremely limited. I am fond of the thrift. Do you mind lightly used goods? Please be specific! For instance, I'm a little squicked by used clothing, but I don't mind any other used goods (i.e. books, glassware, games, DVDs, whatever.) I love used stuff! I don't even mind used clothing, just not used bedding. Do you have an Etsy shop? Do you know of any Etsy shops that are Switch Witch friendly? No. Would a gift or a postcard from Disneyland make you squee with delight or puke into your mail box? I think that would be cool! =) What are your favorite types of Halloween candy? I try to stay away from Halloween candy, but I'm a sucker for chocolate and Fireballs! Do you prefer soap or shower gel? Please give examples of your favorite scents or brands.

I love teefury.com and threadless.com and usually buy the cutesy ones. I'm a small/medium in men's. I don't like women's because of the capped sleeves. I do not want a 3 Wolf Moon shirt or anything of that nature. LOL How do you feel about pumpkin scented things? Not perfume related, but soap, candles, etc.... Yes please!!! Has anyone else heard of or does anyone else love Glamourkin? It doesn't really hold my interest. If you had an international witch, is there anything you would like from the UK?

I'd really love to try some from House of Gloi and The Morbid The Merrier! I am super picky about ingredients, so it's probably best not to grab stuff like Bonne Bell. -Would you be interested in getting fountain pen inks or art supplies via JetPens and or DickBlick? No. -How do you feel about getting art supplies in general? (copic markers, watercolor, brushes, paint, sketchbooks etc.) No. -How do you feel about Threadless tshirts? <3!

Here's a few ideas if you decide to go that route: Burt's Bees, Aubrey Organics, Boots, Alba, Kiss My Face, JASON, The Body Shop and mineral eye shadows (no animal testing please). Since the previous question about "what would you buy from the Lab if you had unlimited funds, etc" left WAY too much to the imagination with no limitations (my answer was pretty much BUY ALL THE THINGS!), what would you do if you found a $50 bill on the ground and a nagging voice in the back of your mind told you that you HAD to spend it on BPAL or else face Death. Also, say they had free shipping (LOL) so don't factor that in. What would you get? And spend it all! Or as close to $50 as you can get. Perversion, Blood Kiss, Blood Countess You mentioned liking knitted things. I have a co-conspirator who would like to help with this. She wanted me to ask you what kinds of textures you like.

No. It's the weekend, and you find yourself without a single chore or responsibility for a few hours. Right this very moment, what's the one thing you would do if you could do anything? Read! Is there anything you'd like from the Mütter Museum Store? No thanks. what's your favorite kind of pizza? Spinach, onions, fresh garlic The Night Circus? I own it, haven't read it yet though. Geeky soda? I don't drink soda. Hershey's Pumpkin Spice kisses? Maybe. I am interested in trying the Ghiradelli Carmel Pumpkin Spice squares though! Do you drink wine? I don't really drink. Umph! I have just been enlightened to THESE. Are these flavors relevant to your interests? No salted smoke, rose citrus or dead sexy, but yes please to all the others! *sigh* I have a not-so-secret love for The Broship of the Rings. Are there any prints from her store you'd like? No. I have a question- What kind of purse do you prefer? Leather, cloth? over the shoulder or crossbody, or something that can do either? Do you like bold bright prints with fun things, or monochrome, solid colours? I love purses! I prefer a medium to large size, usually leather (recycled or gently used! I can't remember the last time I purchased a new leather purse and probably won't in the near or even far future), or a really good quality pleather, and sometimes cloth! I definately prefer over the shoulder (the option of a crossbody is a bonus!). I usually go for solid colors. I've been completely obsessed with this etsy seller and own three bags by her. I don't really like bold prints with fun things, I end up changing them out quickly. I also really really love the look of these. The mexican blanket thing seems really big right now, and I love the whole idea. Usually, if it's bohemian, I'm all over it. I also have loved this purse forever. I could go on and on... I REALLY REALLY love purses. You get a package in the mail containing 3 things you have really wanted more than anything else you’ve mentioned so far in this thread. (they are all reasonably priced of course! ~$20 or less apiece). What are they? 1. Any of the Blooddrop or Nocturne Alchemy bottles on my wishlist (too hard to decide on one!) - Especially the ones at Scent Addict. 2. Dead Witch Walking by Kim Harrison 3. http://www.etsy.com/listing/78190211/sale-little-witchling-witch-hat - if you're a knitter, she sells the pattern too. I don't knit. How do you feel about hemp? jewelry, soap, etc? Sure! Witchee, would you like anything from this particular Haunt update? Kinda sad that I didn't get to snag any Winchester anything. The golden pumpkin glossing oil sounds wonderful though! Who’s interested in Halloween: Montreal? Not really.

    Searching for the Perfect Vanilla?

    I've been following this thread for the last few days, because I LOVE vanilla. I'm still searching for the perfect vanilla but I do have quite a few that I like. I didn't like Detestable Putrescence, it really smells like melted vanilla ice cream. I don't like melted ice cream at all, nauseating! I don't smell vanilla in Liz, but it's a great scent. I LOVE the vanilla in SO. I get vanilla out of Mouse's Long and Sad tale. It's nice and light. TKO is delicious! Sharpe lavendar that wears away leaving with sweet, creamy, fluffy vanilla. Boo 2010. The vanilla is great and a bit buttery, but the cotton... I'm not sure about the cotton. _shell_bells Have you tried Anne Beany? That's really buttery, vanilla, brown sugar smelling to my nose.
  7. Fae, Vasillisa, SO and Cheshire Cat. I'll probably retire Cheshire Cat during Autumn and Winter.

    Autumn Scents - recommend the ones you love

    Unfortunately Samhain didn't work for me but I was really new into BPAL. I love wearing Snake Oil during Autumn and other warm, spicy bends as well as incense blends like All Souls and Midnight on the Midway. I'm excited for the new Weenies, maybe I'll find another delicious Autumn blend. I'd love to try Samhain now that I've been around for almost a year, maybe I'll feel differently about it.
  9. Long shot, I know, but is there anything at all similiar to Lilith Victoria? I could probably mix Dorian and SO together, but there's that light floral to it. So, any single GC scents that give off the same light, powdery, comforting vibe?
