August Happenings

I have been busy once again. On my shelf I currently have curing some patchouli with lavender, passion fruit with baby rose, green tea with tea leaves, orange-spice and orange-spice cube confetti. These will be ready mid August to end of August.

I am pleased to tell you that the lip balms of watermelon and mint julep have been a huge success. People are buying them like crazy :o)

In October I am hoping to be part of Old Farm Days in Fluvanna County and hope to see some of you there :o) but I hope to see you at the Farmer’s Market as well :o)

I am currently in the process of creating tagua nut pendants and coordinating necklace strands. Some of them may only have a simply cord, which can be adjusted to your size, others will have a macramé cord for fanciness.

So what is tagua nut you ask? Tagua nut is often referred to the vegetable ivory, because it does get as hard as animal ivory, has the similar if not same color of ivory. The advantage of this nut? No animals are being harmed in the process of harvesting the nut, drying the nut, slicing the nut and shipping the nut.

I have a few of them ready to go, but if you are interested in a special request in design, please e-mail me at
