taking risks...

i have been really enjoying some of our newer incense lately. i also love the description of scents and literature in the packaging.

the seiunamore incense box reads:

"incense burning is a source of inspiration. it brings inner peace and spiritual freedom. to mind seiunamore is to be metamorphosed into love of mankind beyond the different nationalities. welcome to the wonderful world of japanese incense."

then the inside paperwork reads:

Love is not just the word 'Love'.
Love is not just a feeling, either.
Love is to remember the distant past.
Love is to believe in an invisible future.
Love is to think over and over again.
Love is to live at the risk of your life.

i love the time and thought put into these words, packaging and product.

hope everyone is having a wonderful week...

oil lamps....

one of our favorite potters here in town is ryan mckerley. he is such a talented, sweet and funny person. ryan was kind enough to make us some beautiful and simple and oil lamps.

i love oil lamps and had been wanting to carry a handmade ceramic version and ryan came up with just what i was looking for.

thank you ryan!
