I enjoyed a self-appointed snow day yesterday. A sweet, quiet day, preparing for Love & Rummage 3, hanging out with some pretty sleepy cats.
Cat whisker jar for good luck.
I don't actually own a record player anymore but when Eva told me that she had a vinyl copy of Nancy & Lee at her shop, I had to have it. I hope to acquire a simple portable record player in the next little while -- if only I still had all those records I bought when I was in high school. Anyhow, Nancy & Lee and Colour Green by Sibylle Baier make up the perfect soundtrack to a snow day, although music files aren't photogenic.
carly: Thank you!
Verhext: Well, I do find my home to be very peaceful and calm, except when there is clutter everywhere and a crazed kitten running around!
Emerson Merrick: Ooh, you should definitely sniff Violet/Leather! I just love it. Violet is such a beautiful name.
Jane Flanagan: Thank you! I'll have to investigate Caudalie. You always know about good beauty products.
erin: Thank you! That little camera is indeed sweet.
isabelle: Thank you!
Erandi: Thank you! I actually use Clinique sometimes as well! Geoff's mom only uses Clinique and sometimes she passes along the extras she gets in special offer kits.
Bantik: Sometimes! Not always! I don't show the messy parts.
s/w: Aw, I'm sorry! Or should I be flattered? I don't want to be about product placement, ha!
Ella: Oh yes, I've heard Dr Hauschka products are great! Thank you!
neonfoxtongue: Yeah. I mean, even though writing it out sometimes feels like drudgery, I think it's worth it. So far so good! I haven't tried anything else from that shop except the pomegranate soap, which is great! Really nice and sudsy and not drying.
Lexie, Little Boat: Oh you, I'm sure your photos are lovely!
Twiggs: Thanks for your sweet comment!
Amanda: Thank you! If you do get it, I hope you will enjoy it.
iris: I think it's a great idea too! I had the three year diary but I never kept it up.
katie: I'm glad you enjoyed it!
K.: Oh yes, O-Check makes beautiful things.
Beckerman Girls: Thanks, ladies! Toronto is the best.
Love Your Way: Thank you! Oh yes, I know exactly what you mean about the velvet-like quality of certain moisturizers! I love that feeling.
erica-knits: Thanks, girl! Erin told me you got Valens, I think? Hope you love it! I don't read GOOP but I looked it up -- she's totally right about Klorane, that shampoo is the best and I wish it were more readily available here.
Hannah Percyowl: Oh, how exciting -- new glasses are so fun! And yes, I agree. I like remembering small details but unfortunately my brain can only handle so many of them.
ottoman: I know exactly what you mean! I do have to comfort myself with the thought that there will be something new, and that maybe when it's over, I'll be ready to move on anyhow. I hope so, anyhow!
Suzy: Oh, amazing! So glad I could reunite you with the name of the brand. They make great things!
Jen: Thanks, lady! Hope you get some flowery chocolate to nibble on.
danica: Thank you! I do really love those glasses although I caught myself in the mirror yesterday and thought of Nana Mouskouri. Maybe not necessarily a bad thing...
hila: I'm glad you like my photos -- that white table of mine is very handy! I use it all the time for photos. Thank you!
Ella: Thanks for the suggestion!
christy: Oh, I hope you like them! The charcoal soap is a bit messy in my white bathroom but I really love it.
WSAKE: Thank you, what a sweet comment!
Courtney: It's true! You never know when inspiration will strike.
Tracey: Thank you! I'm glad we have some things in common!
Juli: Thanks, married lady! Ooof, I didn't realize that about Vichy. I got talked into buying it and didn't really look into it. I thought it was just its own company from France, where animal testing isn't as common. Thanks for reminding me about Mario Badescu -- I ordered the samples a while ago and forgot!
Maria: Thank you!
Terhi: Thanks! I don't know if the glasses are in fashion, I just like them!
Sitting In A Tree Kissing: Thanks, I'm glad you like them!
Camille: Oh, hmm, good idea! I actually really like UHT milk. Thanks!
Emma at The Marion House Book: If you stop by, I hope you like it! I just re-sniffed my wrist.
Taryn: Thanks so much for your sweet comments! Good luck with the glasses hunt -- I know it can be a tough one.
Cybelle e Fabi: Thank you!
miss sophie: Thank you! That is quite a compliment!
andrea: I'm not sure if I can actually pull them off but I try! Thank you!
Katyha: Thank you!
Blair: Thank you! It feels so good to make your own things, doesn't it?
Emanii: Thanks so much!
Camilou: Thank you, Camilou! And yes, the "scent jackpot" is the perfect way to describe it. Oh, the perfume you described sounds incredible, and I know what you mean about sniffing your wrist for the rest of the day -- that's what happened with me and the OLO! And yes, O-Check excels at minimalism and fetching fonts!
avalonne lou summers: Thank you -- I'm so glad you enjoy them! I hope you love your Fillmores. I don't wear mine as often as I wear my vintage pairs these days, but I still love them and credit them with helping me get used to glasses again. I hope you will enjoy that little camera, too!
