Hello and happy halloween if you are a halloween-ite. I've come full circle; we used to perform a giant spectacle in front of our house every year with costumes, smog machines and skulls on sticks.
Alas, every year I would start November with a major back blowout, and between that and seeing too many kids who couldn't see through their masks bolting out into the street in a panic I thought, okay, that's enough. Time to move along. And we let go of it in the best possible way — I posted an ad on Craiglist and an adorably excited young couple who were planning a halloween-themed wedding took all of our decorations.
Then we spent a few years just sitting out front giving treats to the super young kids who come through early. This year, and please don't tell anyone, I've gone Full Curmudgeon, hiding in the house with the porch light off. I'm fine with that too. Things change. My curmudgeon years are treating me well. Hashtag curmudgeon power.
So let's talk about PATCHOULI. I finally have the much-anticipated patchouli candle. Yes I'm feeling a bit SHOUTY about it. Because it's really nice patchouli. There aren't any other scent notes I recognize mixed in there — no cologne-on-the-elevator scenarios, just the patchouli you crave. Mossy, dark and delightful.
Speaking of dark, let's talk about BLACK. Did you know you can see everything I have in stock that is black by clicking here? You can always find it under "All" on the main menu. Also:
I just made four black linen dresses. They're each uniquely sculpted, have exposed black seams, and have POCKETS. Plus I made a skirt, a scarf with holes and some more cropped sculptural "Japan" Jackets. Press the button below to peruse the whole dang deal.
