Teaser Tuesday: Scythe

Happy first day of Spring! A season of new beginnings, transformation, hope and rebirth; most importantly to me--warmer weather and greater sunlight. Today's teaser book promises much darker themes, it's all moral deliberation, philosophical paradoxes and wrangling over the value of human life vs. the greater good; not a breezy read, but so intensely compelling....

With little rhyme or reason to my choices and habits, as, thanks to my current wax buying hiatus, I'm not reviewing anything new. I've gone through all the wax no-buy stages: rummaging through my stash... Continue Reading →

Old Whaling Co. Soap

Less than two years ago, if someone had told me I'd be using indie vendor bar soaps, I might have smiled while giving them the side eye. But, if they'd told me my husband would be using and loving them, I'd allow a wide berth and think they were nuttier than a soup sandwich. He... Continue Reading →
