    13 Nights SWAP 2022 Answers

    Would you like anything from Paintbox Soapworks Halloween line? https://paintboxsoapworks.com/new-limited-edition/2022-weenie-collection/ I have really enjoyed Paintbox Soapworks products, as a huge Beeswax fan Cathedral of Pumpkins sound amazing in either streusel or sorbetto. I'd also be happy with Guy Fawkes wax melts or hot process soap, September hot process soap or sorbetto, What The Moon Brings Wax Melts. Do you have any interest in Halloween or spooky squishmallows? YES, looking at the sneak peek for this years Halloween squishmallows, I would LOVE any of these, the gargoyle, skeleton, plague doctor, the coffin, tombstone and the grim reaper. Anything from Bath & Bodyworks Halloween Line? I picked up a lot from this line but still find things to covet, WICKED VANILLA WOODS Wallflowers Fragrance Refill, PUMPKIN CARVING Wallflowers Fragrance Refill, PURRFECT PUMPKIN Gentle Foaming Hand Soap and LIGHT-UP GHOST & BAT VISOR CLIP Car Fragrance Holder. If I were to make you a set of arm warmers/ fingerless mitts, what color(s) & style? short and sturdy. I wore throught the palms of about 2 pairs of wool fingerless gloves last winter at work. wrist length works best but elbow would be fine too. Options- Long or short? prefer short but either Solid - one fabric - I'd prefer solid over stripes but mostly because more seams equals more tear points or places to catch them on things like boxes. Stripes- bands of colors sewn together- like fun black & red, black & purple etc. I currently have some nice cashmeres. Yes to fingerless mitts, more lightweight fabric options as its really hot where I live, I really like patchwork stuff like ashobsequies on Instagram. I'm going to Disneyworld in late September! I'll be going to all four parks and attending both the Not-So-Scary Halloween Bash and Epcot's Food and Wine Festival. Is there ANYTHING from Disney that you would like? Is there something you collect that perhaps you'd enjoy a Disney version of (tea, socks, enamel pins, plushies etc etc etc)??? No thank you. I make lightweight, doll-like hairfalls out of things like silk ribbon and yarn. Would you like some, either to incorporate into your costume or just for personal year-round use? If so, name your colors, length and any fibers you could have an allergy to. I did some browsing of hair falls and I really liked the small braided or just brushed out texture, colors of auburn, pumpkin and ox blood would be my preference in a natural fiber. I have chest length hair. I am going to Dragon Con for the first time! Which of these BPALs do you want? https://us4.campaign-archive.com/?u=50266fc02a3b75767125e0ed2&id=9bf4d797e8 I would love to try PEACH GLAZED DONUT WITH MANGO CHUNKS and POMEGRANATE PEACH MARTINI. Would you be interested in a bag like we sell in our etsy shop? https://twinklentwilight.etsy.com - if so, but you don't see fabric you like maybe link to some photos of fabric you like? - we can do small box bags or pencil / cosmetic / notions type bags too. or with a drawstring on top instead of a zipper. - you don't HAVE to use them just for knitting/crochet, you can use them for cross stitch or even not as project bags. No thank you, I have too many bags and pouches already. If you are a yarnie, are you interested in a ceramic yarn bowl? I have an extra Harry Potter (I know, I know) one from Lennymud that I bought before the whole JKR debacle and it didn't profit her in any form anyway. I believe it's Gryffindor themed. Not a yarnie. If you are a yarnie, I'd love to gift some yarn from my stash so give me an idea of colors / weight / material / yardage you'd like. Not a yarnie. Are you interested in trying some of our "thunder butter"? It's like tiger balm or icy hot, but with herbs, beeswax, cayenne or ghost pepper, menthol, wintergreen. cbd version or no? Yes, if there is a no pepper option. I need to inventory our canned goods but do you like things like peach jam, cardamom plum jam, peach butter, plum butter, pickles, applesauce with nothing added, applesauce with red hots, dried apples or pears, bread and butter pickles, dill pickles, blackberry jam, huckleberry jam, candied jalapenos? Umm hells to the yeah to peach jam, peach butter, plum butter, plain applesauce, and dill pickles would all be amazing. Any interest in things from our garden like dried mint, catnip, lavender, rose petals, dill weed or dill seeds, sage, rue, mugwort, rosemary? I would love some lavender. How about alcoholic things like rose petal liqueur, lavender vanilla bean liqueur, various flavors of mead (chocolate orange, strawberry mango, whatever my son is making)? Lavender vanilla bean and strawberry mango, omggg. Pumpkin bread or zucchini bread? How about blueberry zucchini bread with a lemon glaze? Pumpkin bread is welcomed. Luvmilks seasonal goodies are out! What scents and formats appeal to you, my little pumpkin? https://www.luvmilk.com/mm2022.html#/ It says she is on vacay until Oct 1st so might be too tight timewise. Would you like a Pyrex 4-cup Nightmare Before Christmas bowl with lid? (Can also get Star Wars and various Disney ones.) No thank you, I prefer non-licensed décor personally. August Tea's fall sale starts tomorrow, 20% off everything on the site with code FALL20. Is there anything you would like to try, my Pumpkin? https://august.la/ Yes, PSYCHOCANDY, PASSAGE, and SILENT NIGHT all look good. How do you feel about raisin in baked goods? No thank you. Lego? If so, what types, minifigures? No thank you. Favorite spooky fictional characters? I love vampires and phantoms. I grow lots of different herbs and I'm dehydrating loads of them right now, are you possibly interested in: catnip, sage (culinary and/or purple), oregano (Greek and/or purple), rosemary, plantain herb, chives, celery, licorice mint, lovage leaf, mugwort, mint, spearmint, chives, borage leaf, blackberry leaf, raspberry leaf, comfrey, lemon balm, or others? Yes! I'd love some catnip, sage and lavender if you have it. My peacock is molting his tail feathers, would you like some? I'm afraid I'd have no use for them. I'm learning embroidery. Is there a simple motif or symbol (like a pumpkin, a black cat, flowers, spider web…) you might like hand embroidered? Absolutely, spiderweb. Would you like either a basket or a tablemat (that works as a place to put hot dishes as well as being decorative). I make both from fabric wrapped rope that is sewn together. Could be a bread/rolls basket, a yarn bowl for knitting or crochet, or a big flat mat. Flat mat would be neat! I'm taking a trip to New Orleans, anything you'd like food or souvenir-wise? I'm sure I would but I can't think of anything specific. Are your booklists linked somewhere, and up to date? I don't read much but I collect the Barns and Nobles Classics Flexibound Editions, I would love to own any of these, A Picture Of Dorian Gray, Frankenstein, Edgar Allen Poe Classic Stories, The Stange Case Of Dr. Jekyll & Mr.Hyde and Dracula and Other Horror Classics. Do you have fur kids and would they like treats as well?? Yes, I have a kitty would love treats. She is not much for toys though as she is 19. Do you have any interest in trying my infused moonshine whiskey? I've been thinking of experimenting with autumn spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove) and maybe a chocolate chai. I would, maybe like a pumpkin spice mix or a traditional chai? Any interest in spooky shape wax melts in your favorite candle scents? (What are your favorite candle scents?) Yes, I like atmospheric autumnal scents but you can also see my notes in signature for specifics. How about lotion bars? I have never had one but id love to try it.

Do you need any BPAL storage? Bottles? Imps? I am good on storage. Does anything catch your eye from my local tea purveyors? https://www.fridaytea.com/ (I hope they make more Womb of Doom soon!) or https://perennialtearoom.com/ Friday tea, ooohhh. Fall Seasonal Sampler, and Lavender Earl Gray. Perennial Tea Room Lemon Chamomile Lavender, Earl Grey Cream and Lavender Earl Gray. Can you use a mug? What kind/size do you like? I love a spooky mug, medium size is good. One of my favorite Etsy chandlers is having a sale, anything catch your feathery fancy? https://www.etsy.com/shop/TeresaLynnsSimpleLux No thank you.
  2. Cellar Door just posted their Halloween goodies - I love their scents, soaps and candles - which of these might you fancy? Sadly nothing really jumps out to me. If you'd like handmade knit items, are you good with soft wools or do you prefer acrylic only? While I prefer the idea of natural fibers I live in FL so whatever is coolest lol. Are there any items you'd love for fall/halloweenie? (Ie mittens, hat, fingerless mitts, cowl, legwarmers) Because I live in the ever heating already hot state of swampland I think the only thing I could mange is a pair of socks with out bursting into flames. Anyone fancying the new Paintbox Soapworks or Witch Baby Soap Halloween launches? I have really enjoyed Paintbox Soapworks products, as a huge Beeswax fan Cathedral of Pumpkins sound amazing in either streusel or sorbetto. I'd also be happy with Guy Fawkes wax melts or hot process soap, September hot process soap or sorbetto, What The Moon Brings Wax Melts. For Witch Baby Soapworks Antique Honey Gold Finish Candle Snuffer looks so pretty! Would you be interested in an adult Halloween coloring book? I recently backed on kickstarter for one by a local gothic art market near me and it's due in during the swap period. I already own one that gets neglected, poor thing. What are some OCYL brands you've been wanting to dabble in? I have been hesitant to try new OCYL because my BPAL obsession is severe enough but I would love to try more of BPALs collaboration scents like the Two Ritualcravt Hair Glosses and A Very Mütter Holiday. I am working on making bath bombs. Would you be willing to try my creations? Sadly my bits are too sensitive for bath bombs. How about wax tarts? Absolutely! I run a wax warmer 24/7. What type of scents do you favor? I really like atmospheric scents, please see my signature links for note preferences. What kinds of home smell good things do you like? (I.e. incense, candles, wax melts, felt scent balls, essential oils, linen spray) I like candles, wax melts and linen spray. Would you like anything from the bath and bodyworks Halloween line? I picked up a lot from this line but still find things to covet, WICKED VANILLA WOODS Wallflowers Fragrance Refill, PUMPKIN CARVING Wallflowers Fragrance Refill, PURRFECT PUMPKIN Gentle Foaming Hand Soap and LIGHT-UP GHOST & BAT VISOR CLIP Car Fragrance Holder. Do you have any interest in spooky squishmallows? YES, looking at the sneak peek for this years Halloween squishmallows, I would LOVE any of these, the gargoyle, skeleton, plague doctor, the coffin, tombstone and the grim reaper. And would you enjoy spooky stationary? I do, I don't always use it but I love collecting it. I know a lot of us are witchy and have deeply held beliefs about the materials we use as part of our practice. If you're one of those individuals, are there certain herbs, crystals, etc that you do not want to receive? I I am not witchy but I'd love some food grade lavender or butterfly pea flower. When you have a distinct preference for one holiday over another, What are some crossover items that actually work for both? I use ravens, leaves and pumpkins for both fall and Halloween. I also use phantoms for both Halloween and Christmas, think ghost of Christmas yet to come/future. One question (that is actually several questions) -- Local honey? Infused/flavored honey? Local infused/flavored honey with Southwest notes (jalapeno, other pepper, mesquite, acacia)? I love local honey! I am a wimp for spice though, maybe a lavender infused honey would be more up my alley. Does anything from JiJi Knight spark your interest? https://jijiknight.com/ Nothing for me. Any spooky/weenie DVDs you're missing and would like in your collection? NMBC? the Crow? An old Hammer film? Dark Shadows? The Omen? Sleepy Hallow?...? I can't remember the last time I used a DVD so no thank you. Dang (or good!), another serious question -- Shampoo and/or conditioner bars and if so, for what type of hair (dry, fine, oily, curly, normal)? I have always wanted to try these, I have fine wavy hair. I just got the email that the Ectogasm Halloween Collection is live. Does anything interest you? https://www.ectogasm.net/collections/halloween No thank you, I don't really wear pins. On a scale from Paprika Is a Heatwave to Let Me Eat a Peck of Pickled Ghost Chiles, how spicy is too spicy, and how spicy is just right? I'm normally a mild kinda girl, mild salsa, mild tikka and mild pad thai, Forgive me, I was raised by two slices of white bread. I make lightweight hairfalls- would you be interested in some? Either to incorporate into a costume or just for your own year-round use? If so, name your colors and preferred length, and if you have any fiber allergies you want me to take note of! I did some browsing of hair falls and I really liked the small braided or just brushed out texture, colors of auburn, pumpkin and ox blood would be my preference for color and in a natural fiber.

Any aversions? If I could make you some of my fudge, what would you prefer? Absolutely, some peanut butter fudge would be amazing. I'd also be down for sweet baked goods. Are you open to trying different indie perfume houses if I find a scent that I think you'd enjoy? I can only handle one indie addiction so BPAL only please lol. I love making stickers!! If I could design you some stickers, what would you love to have? It could be halloween themed or not! My art style is a bit simplistic, cartoony, and cutesy, I usually draw fairies but last year I did a swap on reddit and made someone a bunch of halloween dog stickers lol. (Sidenote: They probably won't be waterproof, but they're glossy vinyl!) I would love some gothic Halloween sticker, bats, candlesticks and phantoms. I've got a bunch of small round labels perfect for bpal 5ml label lid art! Name your top 5-10 scents that you'd love to have lid art made for! Just as a fun little extra in your package if desired (Could also work for other companies with lids just like the BPAL bottles) No Thank you, I like my bottles nekked.

Bar Soap is always welcome, I am good on chapstick and liquid lotion though. Would you be interested in a tumbler like these? If so, what theme would you like it to be? Glitter or no glitter?

Oxblood red, black, crème, lavender and burnt orange are my favorite colors. Would you be interested in any skincare items? Anything you would not want? I would, I could always use nose pore strips, eye patches and sheet masks. I really enjoy k-beauty skincare. New question: Is anyone else interested in the latest Sphere & Sundry release? https://sphereandsundry.com/offerings/bpals-of-exalted-venus-ii/ Or other S&S offerings? My skin chemistry butchers any floral that's not lavender so sadly that rules out alot of the S&S and BPAL collaboration oils, but if you find one without I would be happy to try an imp. Do you have any interest in trying my infused moonshine whiskey? I've been thinking of experimenting with autumn spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, clove) and maybe a chocolate chai.

Yes SPICED PUMPKIN PIE CHAI, PUMPKIN STICKY CHAI, and PIE MATCHA SPICED PUMPKIN PIE MATCHA all look great. Arcana Craves halloween drop! Anything catching your eye? https://arcanacraves.com/ No thank you, I only collect BPAL. I feel like with some of the witchy/seasonal stuff it might be helpful to know everyone's signs. If you're interested in that kind of thing, what's your sign? I'm a libra. ⚖️♎ Would you like anything from The Pickety Witch? (I'm going to the Vegas Oddities and Curiosities Expo next weekend, and she's vending there, so it may not matter if an item is in stock or not on the website!) https://www.thepicketywitch.com/ Nothing strikes my fancy, sorry. So these nail polishes keep showing up on my instagram and they are kinda vampy--do you wear polish and do any of these float your boat? NOTE I have never worn Holo Taco stuff so cannot vouch for quality just the vibes are super witchy https://www.holotaco.com/collections/dark-rainbow-collection Burnt Bridges looks gorgeous. Oooh I am reviewing my switch witch help answers from 2017 and was reminded of Lush--there used to be a big Lushie/BPALista crossover at one point. Is that still the case? If so dearest pumpkin are you a Lushie? Is there anything from Lush you are coveting? Their halloweenie stuff is out here: https://www.lushusa.com/halloween/?cgid=halloween&pmid=604&start=0&sz=28 Omg yes! SHOWER SLIME Sparkly Pumpkin, SHOWER JELLY Tarantula, LIP SCRUB Vampire Kisses, FRESH FACE MASK Mr Pumpkin Face, SOAP Ghost In The Dark, SHEET MASK Pumpkin, EYE PADS Pumpkin all look amazing. Sadly I can't do the bath bombs or bubble bars though. I have another new question! Favorite bands/artists? Perhaps you'd be interested in a DIY patch to sew onto your jacket/pants/bag or maybe pins or a sticker or anything DIY-ish? I suppose this question isn't quite halloween related lol. Just wanted to ask though because deathrock, horrorpunk, psychobilly, some metal and goth bands etc kinda give off spooky vibes sometimes. I was listening to Catholic Spit while answering these questions so it was on my mind. I don't really wear patches or pins but stickers are welcome! Bands that I like are Deftones, Crosses, The Cure, The Smiths, Depeche Mode, Mareux and Lorn. Because clothing sizing is so notoriously random &&& my idea of cute may be entirely different from your cute... sock dreams? yea or nay? Anything in particular catch your eyes? So much appeals to me! The Pointelle Scrunch Top Knee Socks are to die for but I would pretty much like any knee or thigh highs or ankle length, in sold colors or stripes are good. I don't wear crew length or designs really. New Q: I have been buying soap from https://rockytopsoap.com for at least a decade as they are unscented and less likely to affect which perfume I pull out.... I realize they are not colored and swirly and as pretty but they tend to be super hydrating and luxurious. Do you have any interest in these? I would be interested in trying a shampoo bar. Nocturne Alchemy just dropped their Halloween 2022 limited collection! I am popping in here to see if anything would strike the fancy of my pumpkin? https://nocturnealchemy.com/collections/limited-collection/products/new-halloween-2022-limited-collection No thank you, I am a bpal only kinda girl.
  3. 🎃 13 Nights Of Halloween 👻 ⚰️ Master Supplemental Questions List 🦇 8/8/21 Would you be interested in a cross stitched Halloween ornament? No thank you, I don't really do a Halloween tree. 8/11/21 Are there any collage artists in the mix? I would LOVE to curate one of spooky autumn goodness if my person were to be interested! I don't really have room for my art on my walls sadly, the only space I have left is devoted to BPAL postcards. Have you seen the Dragon con list? & would any of them appeal to you? I would love to try VANILLA WAFERS AND PEACH CREAM, FUZZY PEACH SWEATER AND A MUG OF LONDON FOG, and PEACH AND SUGARED ORANGE SLICES. Which Harry Potter house are you? I am not a Harry Potter fan but if you are curious about my personality I believe I tested as a majority Slytherin and partial Hufflepuff. 8/12/21 Do you like any art from these two sellers? They are local artists and I will probably pick up some stuff for myself soon! https://www.etsy.com/shop/CaitlinMcCarthyArt I like the art style but I am not in need of any prints or pins right now, thank you. https://www.etsy.com/shop/BatinYourBelfry Same as above! ⬆️ I make beautiful and very lightweight yarn-and-ribbon hairfalls - would you like a set in the colors and length of your choice? If yes, name up to four colors and length in inches! Remember- this can be part of your Halloween costume! These are not really my style, sorry. Would you appreciate a skein of handspun yarn? If yes, what weight? What colors? How do you feel about beads? Any allergies to typical fibers? I don't knit so I don't need any yarn. Do you like stickers? Patches? Buttons? I love spooky stickers! Do you spend time in the outdoors? I do, I like to take walks outside and do some nature watching. Do you enjoy cooking and/or baking? I am not much of a cook but I love to bake! 8/13/21 The Paintbox Soapworks Weenie collection went live today! Would you like anything? I just recently got turned onto Paintbox Soapworks! I would love to try the scents G.O.A.T in hot process soap or Sorbetto Sample Size, and HEX ON THE BEACH in either a SORBETTO Sample Size or Bath Streusel . The Pickety Witch is taking pre-orders for their new Halloween pins (estimated ship date: early September). Have any caught your eye? I'm good on pins so no thank you. Zeep's Spooky Collection drops some time next week. Here's the scent list. Would you like any wax melts, candles, whipped soaps, sugar whips (whipped soap/scrub hybrid), body butter sugar scrubs (moisturizing scrub), meringues (lotion), bath bombs, or bath rocks from Zeep? I will have to update this when the collection drops. 8/14/21 Does anyone here like vintage halloween?  YES! It seems like a lot of shops’ Halloween lines have items related to the same standard fandoms, such as The Nightmare Before Christmas, Hocus Pocus, Disney’s Haunted Mansion, Beetlejuice, Addams Family, etc. Do any of those (or other ones) particularly resonate with you? I prefer to decorate with non-licenced items rather than be fandom specific. How do you feel about atmospheric/novelty scents and novelty food items? Things like "new car candle" or "eyeball jawbreaker" or whatever. I'm intrigued lol. If you like tea, how do you want it delivered? Loose? Bags? Tiny little messenger pigeons (subject to availability)? I drink tea and I like both lose tea and tea bags. 🍵 Would you prefer to receive ONE HUGE (more expensive) GIFT and 12 inexpensive ones, a few more expensive, or all about the same price? I am not picky, whatever you choose! What are your fandoms, if any? I am not really in any fandoms, sorry. Do you collect things like tarot decks? If so do you have a wish list or a list of ones you already have? Would you like a silk tarot bag? I am not into Tarot, sorry. Do you like rocks/crystals? What colors / kinds? Would you like them with holes drilled (either as a pendant - you'd need to stick a bale in, or a bead?) I love rocks, any kind is fine! My mom has an etsy store - she makes bags. Do you love anything from it? We can also do box bags, draw string bags, dice bags, etc. and if you want a different type of material or a different fabric pattern, I'm open to links to specific things. (yes, we have harry potter things. We bought most of it before JKR showed herself to be a twat since we buy lots of bolts at the same time - yes, we have a whole room stuffed full of fabric.) No thank you. Let's say you want something knitted. What are you most interested in? (hat, fingerless mitts, scarf, shawl, cowl, infinity scarf, shawlette, gnome, doily, coffee mug cozy, talisman bag, dice bag, soap sack, washcloth (I have a pattern with the leviathan cross for bpal), amigurumi / toy, bracelet, cuff, necklace, other?)

You can check out some of my finished projects on Ravelry if you like (click on the project for more photos) (I'll have to make a list of which items are available because I knit a lot of things and then just put them in a cabinet and gift or sell them.) Nothing scratchy please. Are you interested in receiving any of the following homemade / home dried / home canned goodies? (just erase the ones you don't want when you answer to make it easy?)

Do you prefer receiving a big box with all of your goodies, or is it okay if one or two things are shipped directly to you separately (with notice!!) for customs/shipping cost purposes (i.e. if there's something customs might not allow in from the States that can be shipped from within your country)? Whatever you prefer, I'm easygoing. Would you like a fabric face mask? If so, do you prefer a dome shape or a pleated shape? Yes, I prefer the dome shape.

I have never been to a Ren Fair so I can confirm nor deny. I always go to my town's local Farmer's Market and they have booths selling things like candles, Gourmet Pickles, Flavored Oils and Vinegars, dog treats (like bones and animal feet), honey, and bath products. Would you like any of these things? Bath products, candles and honey are always welcome. Do you have a preference for numbered packages for each night of the swap vs randomly selecting from unlabeled goodies? Either way is fine! If you didn't say much about your reading preferences in your survey but would be interested in receiving books, can you elaborate a bit? Sadly I'm not good at devoting time to books, I'm way more likely to listen to them, I like gothic horror. Are you interested in cocktails, be it recipes, infusion kits, tools, supplies, specialty bitters? No thank you, I don't drink often. 8/18/21 Is there something that you definitely prefer to not receive in any category (anything to avoid if you hadn't/forgotten to mention)? No items with glitter on them please. Are there patterns/prints (more guidance than general Halloween/Autumn) you like for things or are you open to whatever I may find that speaks to me? I am open! Any significant other or other special person? Like if I wanted to send you specialty cocoa for a date night, would that be OK? I am making up the cocoa part, but you get my drift. No special person in my life atm. I would love to request folks to to put their wish list in this thread and link in their signature.

Helllllll yyyeeeaahhh, I LOVE BPTP stuff, maybe more than the perfume oils, shhhhhh. 8/21/21 So partner, would you be interested in a Frankenbag done in Halloween prints? No thank you, I am good on bags. Y'all with furbabies... Are there any food allergies/sensitivities or quirks to know about? Nope, furball is not picky. how do you feel about (ethically sourced) butterfly / moth art (in a jar or shadowbox) That is my Jam, I love anything with a naturalistic/creepy theme. I may have preemptively picked out 2 Halloween-themed mugs with cute matching spoons, before I knew who my match was going to be! So I leave it to you: Bat, or Cat? Bat always. 8/22/21 If you mentioned aversions to any common Halloween decor items (skeletons, witches, spiders, etc.), how encompassing is that? Specifically, is a "kid friendly" drawing of that same item on a piece of decor (like, a book cover or wrapping paper) still a preferred pass? No adversions. Would you be interested in receiving a never-used eyeshadow palette from Nororiously Morbid (gothy colors) and/or a never-used eyeshadow palette from Pretty Vulgar (romantic neutrals)? I am pretty good on makeup but I wouldn't say no to new gothy makeup. 8/23/21 I live in Japan. Are you interested in anything specifically Japanese I could get for you here (doesn't necessarily have to be Halloween themed)? For example, are you a fan of the anime Demon Slayer and want merch? Are you interested in trying some fun kit-kat flavors? Do you need a new set of pretty chopsticks? Japanese snack are always appreciated. there is an excellent chance teeturtle will have a sale in time for this swap: anything (particularly tshirts or socks) that appeal? Sizes?

Wrist fans? Tie-dye beach dress...? I could never turn down fudge! How do you feel about fancy marshmallows? I love them! 8/25/21 We've asked about candy, but let's talk specifically about gummies.

What about the Mutter Museum's gift shop? Basically anything for there but esoecially books by Caitlin Doughty or the BPAL perfume collaborations. 8/27/21 I grow mugwort and it's harvest season. Would you like dried leaves for bathing or tea? Or a bound bundle for smoke cleansing? (Its said to be excellent for divination or lucid dreaming, but do not use if pregnant.) its also a digestive bitter and tastes great on chicken. Sure!

I would love any of the Halloween themed squishmallows, I believe they are sold at Wallgreens and Learning Express but I have had no luck finding them.

It's fun!) https://polishpickup.com/ I am good. 8/31/21 Anything here sound good to you? https://gryffonridge.com/ I am good. Hayden Evens Art has released some new Halloween and Disney-themed prints and stickers. Do any spark your interest? Any Halloween stickers would be cool. So would you hate or be into more miscreant Halloween vibe decor - like wholesome figurines repainted, creepy dolls, goats with horns, (fake) animal skeletons, things in jars? Is anything too dark, morbid, or recoil worthy? No, thank you. do you use any sorts of semipermanent dyes or do anything fun/wild to your hair? are there any hair products you like?

    Warm Pumpkin Cider Atmosphere Spray

    This is just as advertised, yummy warm cider with pumpkin pie spices! 🍎 The buttercream is there too to round everything out and soften the spices. This reminds me of a candle you might find during fall but without the artificialness and way more realistic. 🎃

    Looking for Beeswax Recommendations That Don't Have Honey

    Thank you for the heads up! I may have already bought it....maybe. Not gonna lie I am super excited for it.

    Butterfly Garden Atmosphere Spray

    I just received a decant of this and wow! This is so pretty. I'm normally not a fan of florals unless they are really soft and fresh and that is exactly what this is. I totally agree that there is no rose in this or other high pitched florals, thankfully! Its also very well blended and I can't pick out any particular notes. Overall its like being in a butterfly garden, lots of pretty soft florals, some greenery and some faint wisps of nectar. 🦋🐛

    Breakfast, Or Something

    For me this is pretty much as described, I get the guava, cotton candy, and strawberry milk. 🍓🥛 This is a very fun and happy scent. This has low throw for me (has better throw in a scent locket) which is keeping it from being bottle worthy but I will enjoy my imp.

    V'al Hanissim

    This is gorgeous. Only two notes listed but is more than the sum of its parts. A beautiful warm sexy slightly powdery amber and beeswax. 🕯️

    Looking for Beeswax Recommendations That Don't Have Honey

    Ooohh, that does sound good. I'll have to add this to my list too!

    Ice Princess Bath Oil

    I snagged this off of Etsy on a whim because I was low on bath oil. Based off the scent notes I was worried the berries would translate to cough syrup which can happen for me sometimes but nope this is beautiful! As others have said Ice Princess is surprisingly warm due to the honey and vanilla cream but the berries give it a Yule edge. I'm happy I snagged this.

    Howling in Vain

    Sylvia is my favorite Hallowench, and this hair gloss did not disappoint! Plus I'm a sucker for anything with "fur" listed, as generally this makes a very fuzzy/cozy scent. Smelling from the bottle I can pick out all the notes, the amber hits you first, than the rice (there is just enough to be interesting but not enough to smell like you've been in a cafeteria food fight) and then the champaca. Once in the hair everything blends together and gives off a general cozy ambery vibe with a bit more interest to it with the rice and champaca. Very glad I wasn't scared off by the rice and decided to get this.

    A Cozy Sweater and an Apple Cider

    I am in heaven...this is ssssoooo nice and cozy. Sniffing from the bottle I get more of the notes that comprise sweater which I'm having a hard time placing but it is a very clean comforting sophisticated smell. Certainly a freshly washed sweater. Something about this sweater profile reminds me of Wax Cylinders, but a note that is not listed. Once on the skin the apple cider comes out more and adds warms to the blend. To me neither aspect dominates the other, it just becomes a very gorgeous autumnal blend. I will cherish this!!!!
  13. FloridaFledgling

    A Sweet Sleep Hair Gloss

    Totally agree with the sentiments above, this is not as strong of a lavender as TKO. It's super soft and fluffy. I can't really pick up the Bergamot. The pear and sandalwood are very subtle. Doomsday_disco is totally accurate in saying that this comes off as a soft sugared vanila mallow scent. This is great for bedtime!
  14. FloridaFledgling

    Looking for Beeswax Recommendations That Don't Have Honey

    Adding that to my next order! For some reason I thought the Lights of Men's Lives was limited, I will add it to my need to try list too! An imp is worth it! Thank you everyone!
  15. FloridaFledgling

    Looking for Beeswax Recommendations That Don't Have Honey

    I ordered a decant of that one and can't wait to try it! 🕯️
