I apologize for the late update. I have contracted The Plague, and am not quite on top of things this week. But yesterday, Beth, Puddin and the lovely labbies brought us a fantastic update: Peach Moon ripens early! Plus the fantastic BPTP holiday update.
Smoke hangs on the stream,
The peach-trees shed bright leaves in the water,
Sound drifts in the evening haze
Dew-covered peach blossom, white tea, moonlit musk, night-blooming jasmine, ho wood, and chrysanthemum.
Black Phoenix Trading Post has gone live with the next installment of 15 Painted Cards from a Vampire Tarot:
And pay tribute to the great old ones with this fantastic tee!
MISKATONIC VALLEY YULETIDE FAIR TEE
Plus, there are Yule Baths, with a new addition.
ICE PRINCE BATH OIL
As beautiful and cold as a December storm.
Crystalline musk, winter lily, bergamot, plum, and frozen pine boughs.
PROSERPINA BATH OIL
For thine came pale and a maiden, and sister to sorrow; but ours,
Her deep hair heavily laden with odour and colour of flowers,
White rose of the rose-white water, a silver splendour, a flame,
Bent down unto us that besought her, and earth grew sweet with her name.
The emergence of light in darkness.
Frozen pomegranate and a hint of nocturnal blossoms.
WINTER MAIDEN BATH OIL
Ice-rimed innocence. The blush of youth, frozen for eternity.
Snow-laden woods, iced blackberry and bergamot, white rose, and crystallized amber.
HOLIDAY STRESS RELIEF BATH OIL
Relax, revive, restore.
Peppermint, spearmint, geranium bourbon, lavender, clary sage, white amber, juniper berry, laurel leaf, coriander, opoponax, and mandarin.
And don't forgot the lovely Yuletide atmospheric sprays. Snow White is back again (hooray! I can stop hoarding last year's bottle like it's liquid platinum!), also with a new addition.
Dirt-spattered rags, rusted chains, and dry switches against a backdrop of black fir and snow.
A chilly, bright perfume: flurries of virgin snow, crisp winter wind and the faintest breath of night-blooming flowers.
