The Dance of the Kumquats

What an exciting week we had! Aside from the snow falling this morning, it was a wonderful week. We had ordered some supplies that had gone missing en route. We waited and waited and finally realized they weren't showing up. We contacted our supplier who put a tracer on and low and behold - it was declared lost.

So after several long weeks of waiting patiently - our supplier filled a new shipment for us and sent it out asap - and when we got to our coveted bottle of Kumquat - we were ecstatic with joy. It's a clean, fresh kumquat kind of scent...and it makes you want to break out and do the dance of the kumquats (whatever that may be:). So good. Not at all perfumey smelling - just clean and fresh. We'll make up some soap this weekend and it's going to fly off the shelves. In fact, I keep going to the bottle, taking off the lid and just keep inhaling it. Regardless of the frigid temperatures outside, I just know it's going to get warmer.

We're market ready - just about packed up and ready to go. We've been getting a lot of soy candle orders since people are starting to hear about the benefits of soy wax and pure cotton wicks. Hmmmm, wonder if we shouldn't make up a few Kumquat Soy Candles, doesn't that sound divine??

Here's to thoughts of spring and splurging!
