Sweet Memories, Snow, and Dream
The Vermont Country Store catalog came yesterday and they advertised particularly unusual Easter candy so I looked through it. The candy is same as what I could buy here, but there was something new: Sweet Earth Solid Natural Fragrances. I used to use these when I was a teen.
