Wow! This thread really exploded while I was away during the New Years weekend. I'll do my best to catch up, so this will probably be a sort of long post
TEA all the way! I'm a heavy tea drinker; I go through at least three cups a day and sometimes more. I have yet to find a kind of tea that I refuse to drink
My favorite has to be Celestial Seasoning's Imperial White Peach or their Country Peach. I think I like just about anything that's peach flavored.
McDonald ponies, baits, customs?
A custom of my persona would be absolutely amazing. And I do appreciate customs;) McDonald ponies would be great because I had to sell all of mine to pay the bills when I didn't have a job >_< Baits are totally acceptable because I LOVE to restore.
YES! Especially a so soft rearing stand.
Any shade of purple. I also like green a lot. My kitchen and bedroom are cherry red and grape purple with hints of gold and my bathroom is neutral greens and tans. I made my art desk/computer room area a magenta and lime green theme because they're peppy and inspire me to get things done.
Candles, lotions, bath accessories?
I'm a huge candle addict, but have two major requirements on them. I won't burn any candle that contains lead in the wick because it's bad for your health to inhale the lead-laden smoke. The second is no essential oils in candles. I am owned by a cat and cat's can't properly metabolize essential oils in any form, so I try to avoid those for her health.
Lotions... Not so much. I like Burt's Bees lotions, but not really anything else.
Bath accessories- Salts! I'm a fiend for baths and love to add salts. Auria Cacia salts are my favorite, but I'm really not picky as long as they're not artificially fragranced (parfum on the ingredient label). Baths are my meditation and de-stressing time, so anything that helps with that is appreciated. I could really use a new bath pillow... The current one has a hole in it and I keep re-inflating it because I don't want to make the hour trip into town to go get a new one.
I'm a pretty grateful person and appreciate any extras included. I prefer useful and beautiful things over kitchy dust catchers. My cat Misty loves boxes, so the box my swap stuff comes in is considered an extra! Chocolates are great, as are anything ginkgo, dragonfly, Celtic knot, or raven related. I also enjoy fairy gardening and am obsessed with moss and ferns.
As mentioned before, a little snowshoe siamese kitty named Mist Luin
, aka Misty. She's my only child and I adore her to death =) She's currently having some intestinal issues, so any treats for her would have to be freeze-dried meats, such as shrimp or chicken, or greenies. Feathers are her favorite toys, as are a stuffed Chewbacca, and string.
Will anybody be celebrating a birthday during the swap?
Nope! I be a July pony =D
It's so neat reading everybodies likes and wants. I wish I could send a box to more than one person because I keep seeing people post things and I'm all "I like that too! I have xyz that I bet they'd love." But no spoilers on what/who, because I don't want to hint at who my partner is
