Today I received the second of two orders I placed with the Holy Black on black friday.  I've been wanting to try the Tell-Tale Heart AS and they offer some simply packaged bottles as their "secret stash".  I was very pleased with the product and availability, but the packaging overall really left something to be desired.  I received the Tangerine Creeper AS yesterday and it was in a flimsy plastic bottle with a label that was too large and bunched up around the contoured edges.  It works but looks and feels cheap.  I wish they at least used glass.  Nevertheless, the Tell-Tale Heart splash actually leaked a bit on the package invoice.  Not much, so I am not going to make a claim.  Both packages also were shipped in bubble wrap envelopes instead of small boxes.  Again just a poor choice.  Just because the products were kept simpler and did not include all the theming, they are still quality items that still cost enough to show more care.  With that aside, I can't wait to try out my new Tell-Tale Heart AS.  I thought it would go good with Flowers in the Dark so I did not order the Holy Black matching soap.  The Holy Black claimed the AS was the center piece of the set so this was my focus.  BTW, the Tangerine Creeper soap & splash was fantastic this morning.  It really worked awesome and will be a great addition to the den.

Today I picked up a small pottery bowl at the High School during my son's parent teacher conferences.  I thought it looked cool, was made by the students, and the purchased helped the kids raise funds.  It is a little shallow, but the surface is wide and textured enough to lather some soap for a change of pace from my daily scuttle.

Today I received a package with some seasonal fun.  Picked up Cane! & Kiritimati soap and AS bundles from PAA with the CK-6 formula.  I am pretty psyched to try these guys, but wish they would stick with the 4oz tubs and cut the price by 20%.  I'm sure the formula will be very competitive with the best that charge the same, but I do not favor being forced to buy 20% more of something that has a 33% price increase per once.  Nevertheless, they should be great.  I will be trying Cane! tomorrow morning and it smells nice and fresh out of the tub.  I also picked up another empty tub for my shampoos.  As such I will break in the High Jump 47 shampoo I bought earlier.  The PAA shampoos are really fantastic.
