Have tent; will travel! We’re gearing up for the summer season, making lots of lotion and soap. We’re going to try out the Mt. Vernon Farmers Market and see how it goes. Word has it that the Swedish pancakes are seriously yummy, plus there are lots of other food vendors, so you may want to plan a visit around lunchtime.

I’m tickled to roll out my new Jojoba oil roll-on perfumes. Jojoba oil has some amazing properties. It’s suitable for all skin types and penetrates easily. It softens without being greasy and because it’s odorless, is perfect in combination with fragrance oils. Jojoba oil perfumes are a great way to keep your favorite scent fresh all day, while nourishing your skin.
Jojoba oil perfumes are available in Crystafel, Ojai, Wai’oli, Jaffna, Avalon, Veracruz, Idyllwild and Mrr. Oh, and these tubes last a long, long time.

New for the season, is my latest scent, aBandon, a sweetened cranberry. I’m making it into everything, including shaving soap. I particularly like it as a room spray.
And, in other news…
The new home for this year’s Holiday Festival of the Arts is…
This is the building kitty-corner to Bellingham High School and used to be a bingo hall, Sunshine Liquidators, and, most recently, Mayberry’s Sporting Goods.
Bonus: latte stand in the parking lot!

My inherited son, Ian, gave me a remarkable book for Christmas, titled The Innocence of Objects, about the making of the Museum of Innocence in Istanbul. The museum is filled with shadow boxes, something near and dear to my heart. The boxes are exquisite.
The museum was created by a man named Orhan Pamuk, who took decades to make this vision a reality. He collected everyday objects recollected from his childhood, then in addition to meticulously arranging them in shadow boxes, gave them their own life and meaning by writing an indelible love story which Pamuk also titled the same name, The Museum of Innocence.
One of these days, I intend to visit Istanbul and this amazing museum.

There is some amazing art at this year’s Allied Arts Holiday Festival. Semilla Design’s seed jewelry is fantastic.
I love this red mouthed vase.
The displays are often as creative as the pieces.
I want to adopt this kitty.
So many amazing painters…
Clarissa’s creations stay with you.
There are several very skilled ceramic artists again this year. I love this glaze work.
I adore Karin Mueller’s assemblages. I have two of her clocks already.
Here’s what my Realms booth looks like this year.
Stop by and support local art!

I’m happy to announce that you can now try my lotions free of charge. Just access the contact page at www.realmsbathandbody.com, send me your mailing address and your choice of up to three scents you’d like to try.
If you’re anything like me, it’s really important to be able to test lotions out before you spend any money. I want you to be really happy with the ones you choose.

And in the case are some of my half doll assemblages, as well as shadow boxes on the wall.
