Wonderful New Stuff: Check

Here’s a little taste of some of the new goodies just lying around waiting for good homes. They’ll even settle for not-so-good ones occupied by people who’ll use them with good intentions. They’re not picky.

LOVE LETTERS. THESE GUYS ARE HOLDING THEIR BREATH, WAITING TO BE WEPT ON. WHEN’S THE LAST TIME YOU WROTE A LOVE LETTER?

***

IT’S EDGAR. ALLAN. POE. AND HIS HEAD BURNS, GIVING YOU LIGHT! AND, (THIS IS JUST TOO MUCH,) HE’S SCENTED! THESE ARE THE STRANGEST, MOST BEAUTIFUL CANDLES, WHICH LOCAL SCULPTOR JAMES BONNER CASTS IN WAX. THEY’RE FROM WAX POETIC CANDLES. A WEBSITE IS FORTHCOMING, BUT YOU CAN MAKE REQUESTS THROUGH PORTRAIT OF A BOOKSTORE FOR CUSTOM CANDLES. JUST IMAGINE: BURNING THE BUST OF YOUR OLD FLAME (PUN SORT OF INTENDED,) OR A GREAT AUNT OR… ANYONE, REALLY.

BUDDHA(S)

NOT PICTURED: LITTLE BUDDHA HANGING FROM A KEY RING, MEANT TO “ENLIGHTEN YOUR PATH” BY SHINING A LIGHT THROUGH ITS SEATED REAR END. MUCH CUTER AND MUCH MORE  SACRILEGIOUS THAN IT SOUNDS.

***

YOU’RE DRIVING DOWN WILSHIRE AND SUDDENLY INSPIRATION KNOCKS YOU OVER THE HEAD. WHAT TO DO! WELL, YOU PULL OUT YOUR MINI PAINT KIT AND PAPER, OF COURSE!

***

POOR ALAIN, BURDENED BY ALL THIS LOVELINESS.

***

NO COMMENT. EXCEPT, OF COURSE, JUST HOW COOL IS THIS?

MAGNETIC… *breathe*… POETRY

***

AND SO MUCH MORE…

 IT’S GOING TO BE A GOOD SEASON, AND AS I SIGN OFF AND TURN OFF MY CAPS LOCK, I INVITE YOU TO JOIN US.
