The suspended opal peppermints create a viaduct to the childhood hideaway I used to frequent. The little wooden guesthouse with checkered pink curtains held all the secrets to getting the plastic toys you wanted from your parents without having to wish. The gem-studded gumball crown hidden in the center of the house allowed the ceremonial accumulation of dust to settle around the bottom in the shape of lanterns. At night the lanterns took the form of ancient pharaohs and holiday sprinkled donuts.
