love day


Poor Pony is not having a very good Valentine's Day! She's fine, but we did have to cancel some cool plans this weekend to keep an eye on her. At least her new collar/cape is very amusing. The saddest little flower.

Here is some pretty imagery I have been collecting for the past little while, because as far as I'm concerned, love and hearts are worth celebrating every day -- and at my house, we do. No one has a monopoly on love, so just let it flow.











REPLIES

Previously Owned: Oh yeah, lots of people have mentioned Lush -- I haven't had much luck with Lush, though.

erin jane / atlantic treefox: Yeah, it's worth a shot! The shop does say she makes things specifically for sensitive skin!

Michelle of The Feather Den, Annie, Natalie, erica-knits, Kate, Cassandra, jlee, JustChiffonandDandy, Sarah, julie, Jane Flanagan: I agree! She does beautiful work and I'm looking forward to receiving my soaps and trying them out.

Danielle: It's true, the scents are a big problem. I also hate that so many of them are anti-bacterial by default.

Stephanie: Yes, you're so right about that! At work I have to use whatever anti-bacterial liquid soap they put in the pumps and I am constantly having to moisturize. Not so much at home, though.

Bite The Beat: Yes! Everything is better in small batches.

Rizie: Very wise, girl!

Siubhan: Oh, indeed! I'm hoping to learn how to do it myself.

Wishcandy: Yes, I don't like shower gels too much myself -- they really make a mess in the bath and leave a film on the tub when I'm in a hurry!

erin: I'm sure the scents are delicate and lovely. They must be!

amy w - over and under: Oh no, that's too bad!

Hwasoon: Thank you for doing beautiful work! I can't wait to get my soaps.

BH: Oh, thanks so much! So nice to hear.

Anonymous: Thank you! I have a Toronto tag on my posts, so when I talk about anything local they should be easy to find! But I will do my best to post more Toronto-related content! I'm glad you enjoy it.

sweetie pie press: I completely agree! I see no reason for spending more than $6 on something that is on your face for about thirty seconds at the most.

kater: Ha! Nooo, don't do it!

Victoria / Cats Dreaming in Keylime: Nothing better than clean, it's true.

Anonymous: Hi Alyce! I wrote a post here that mentions a few of my favourite places: http://fieldguided.blogspot.com/2010/03/my-tronnow.html I also have a tag called "Toronto" that should pull up most of my Toronto posts. If you'd like more information or more ideas, please feel free to email me!

Kitty Stampede: Oh yes, pear is such a wonderful scent! The funny thing is I don't like eating pears as much as I like the smell of them.

Denise: It's relatively new to me as well, but I love it!

  3. Aw, Pony. I can say though, the kitty poncho -- as we referred to it -- is much better for the little guys than the usual cone. Our poor cat haaated that cone, and kept bumping into everything. He wasn't thrilled about the poncho, but at least it didn't block his vision or whiskers.

    Willy had to wear his for two weeks because of eye surgery; he had quite the cleaning session when it finally came out. Get well soon, Pony!

  8. Oh, Pony! I said it out loud and sort of guffawed/cried at the same time. She's like, "I did not sign off on this Pierrot costume."

    your sweet pony - still cute with her sad face.

    Pony is such a pretty little thing. I'd love to fix her up with my little peewee, Henry. He likes calico cats!

  34. aww, poor little princess! she looks about as miserable as my cat when we take him to the vet (heart-wrenching "meow" to boot). At least they have short memories and she'll forget about it soon.

    Hope you had a lovely, heart-filled day Anabela.

  38. wow - i've never seen one of those ... cat necklaces!
    it's so cute/sad/funny when my dog has his little cone on so he doesn't bite his feet... but that skirt cat thing takes the cake for cute.
