All The Pretty Flowers

 WELP since Ravelry has imploded we are time traveling back to 2008 and the heyday of blogs!  I hereby resolve to start posting content again. I have some socks in progress that are quite lovely.

Soap For a Cause

You may know that I have a strong pro-asylum position regarding anyone who is seeking a better life here in the US.  RAICES is a group with a "mission to help separated families, detained families, unaccompanied minors, and others who are seeking asylum in the United States."  That is some hard, good work.  

So I'm having a flash promotion:  buy a 6 pack of soap bars for $50 and I'll donate the shipping of $8 per box to RAICES.  Good for orders placed between 4 PM PDT Thursday to 4 PM PDT Friday and for in-stock items only (please see below).  Can't decide?  Give me an idea what scents you like and I will choose for you.  

Arabian Spice - 1
Cedar Balsam - 3
Coconut - 3
Cucumber Melon - 1
Ginger Lime - 3
Lavender - 2 
Lavender Mint - 2
Lemon - 2 
Lemon Vanilla - 3

To Be or Not To Be

Sad day today. Hamlet, my 19-20 year old cockatiel, passed away. He was born in this house, raised several clutches of wonderful offspring and was an all around fabulous friend. His mate Violet is missing him too (she's the whiteface on the end and their daughter Mustardseed is in the center).
His mama Dante was my first bird, acquired in 1995 in Massachusetts.  She was wonderful, he was wonderful, his babies have all been wonderful.  Little Mustardseed is the last one I have at home, maybe it's time to start her thinking about raising a family.  His son Jack is with my friend in the next town and has a wonderful life with her family.
