adios! (just for a bit)

13 07 2010

team terra is road tripping west for 2 weeks.  i am wrapping up any pending business as i stuff clothes into my beautiful backpack for the trip on saturday, and then i am offline until august.

etsy will go into vacation mode on friday, and to update on the status of the gulf oil spill donation, that will continue into august.  i was wrapping candles in paper today for a local delivery and saw an old photo of an oil-slicked bird’s attempt to fly.  still angry, saddened, disappointed, disgusted, etc.  let’s keep giving support where we can.

salty not sweet will be fully stocked with terra verde before we go, so visit the lovely waterloo road when you run out of cleveland gray soap or kumquat & guava fig soy candles.

wish us a great trip, and i’ve got lots and lots of ideas to start rolling out when we return.  terra’s anniversary is the beginning of september, so look for a salty-hosted 1st anniversary party early this fall!

cheers!

name a new scent!

13 03 2010

i need help!  i found a great new scent, and i want to give it an adorable name to match.  the generic name is blue agave/tequila plant.

top notes of kaffir lime, lemon zest, apple, and black currant.  middle notes of lily of the valley and rose petals.  base notes of oak moss and white woods.

i think this scent smells like a lovely mexican holiday.  (though i’ve never actually been to mexico…)

send me your name suggestions, and the winner(s) will receive a $10 terra gift certificate to use at our next show- cirque imaginnaire, on saturday, march 27th.  if more then one person suggests the winning scent, all will receive a gift certificate.  contest ends tomorrow (sunday, 3/14) evening, when i’ll post the winning name and winner.

this scent has not been released, but you can get a sneak whiff at the salty not sweet boutique this weekend!  tonight until 11pm, sunday 12-4!
