Another Table for the Sunday Marketplace

Has anyone else seen the new table over there, sort of by itself? Granted, the dragon sleeping around the entourage is more than a tad off-putting. If you watch he whole group closely the whole picture shifts, That chubby woman behind the table, yes, the one that seems so plain, until you see her up close. Then you see how old and innocent her eyes are.

She is the Queen of her tiny Kingdom; A gay, patchwork canopy, with ribbons and bits of sewn on mirror, is her pavillion and beneath it are aromatic, indulgent creations to delight any woman. Her table is full of assorted bottles, jars, bags,and boxed kits of herbal beauty products. She will take the time to make sure you know how to use her products. With any unstoppering of a bottle the two cats sniff appreciatively, before going back to grooming the dragon, who is fully limp in bliss.

I am here with my herbal goodies, soaps, oils, lotions, bath teas, bath oils of all sorts to sniff through.
There is Rose Milk & Honey,
Chamomile and Aloe,
Lavender and Oatmeal,
And Comfrey-Borage Soaps.

I have bay leaf oil for sore, knotted muscles
Chamomile oil to moisturise your face as never before.
Sage oil, part of a three-fold treatment for psoriasis.
Natural Capsaicin oil for arthritic aches.
A sweet-smelling oil to rub on your face to banish headaches.

Over here are the splashes for your face:]
This one is chamomile, for sensitive skin,
There is the rose and honey splash,
And the bottle there has the chamomile astringent.

Here are massage oils, for relaxation and romance,
In the corner are the bath oils; rose, jasmine, lavender, and mint.
The little bags?
Yes! Those are bath teas. You've never had a bath tea before? I would reccomend the jasmine tea then, it really does wonderful things for you. Yes, sweetie, there are other ones, rose, lavender, mint and chamomile teas. Yes, it is 'steeped' in the bathwater!!

Of course, take your time, sniff around There should surely be one to tempt your senses here. Yes, even the teas are handmade by me. Please contact me at for prices and details.

For the Patrons of SoulFood there are special Prices, and the possibilities of trades.

Gwen your stall at the market looks wonderful...What I really need is something for freckles,arthritis of the right knee,if possible all in the one bottle .....other than that I am in tip top condition (Oh what about grey hair anything in a bottle to suit an older woman)
I love the look of them all,and as a gift they would be ideal for a dear friend I know especially the Tea Bat...

Love Lois (Muse of the Sea)

What a wonderful collection Gwen. No wonder you are to become the Amazon Queen's beauty therapist. Of course, you do realise that Baba will hear and demand you come and work in her place.

Lois Dear!! I cannot tell how much the idea of a 'Tea Bat' tickles my imagination. Now I shall have to make a 'Tea Bat' for our Lois (Muse of the Sea). The idea has had me smiling all night.

Heather Love. Who'd a thunk it?? That the tomboy who preferred Breyer horses to dolls, my Junior Scientist Kit to Barbie clothes; the girl that sulked through her brother's birthday party because she wanted the colouring book the boys got!! She is now Alchemist to the Amazon Queen!! What a beautiful, wiggly world!!
