A few things making me happy during these troubling, worrying days that have left my stomach in knots.
A few new houseplants, placed up on the highest shelf and away from a plant-loving kitten. She just might like the baby's tears and frosty fern as much as I do.
Locally-grown tulips for a little spring colour. Open windows, fresh air.
A lucky yield at the thrift store -- four perfect silk blouses, handwashed in the tub.
The arrival of beautiful soaps. I ordered the French white clay and the charcoal, and received samples of tangerine and pine rosin. In the top picture the soaps are sitting on the fabric samples for our spring line.
Time Wasting Experiment 0045 & Time Wasting Experiment 0029.
I've fallen hard for dry shampoo, since I don't like to wash my hair too often. I was using a dry shampoo from Klorane for a while (Klorane shampoo is my absolute favourite, when I can find it and when I'm in the mood to spend that much money on shampoo) but decided to try Lulu Organics hair powder after recommendations from Francesca and Megan. I got the Patchouli & Amber, which I love.
Heather from OLO very sweetly and thoughtfully sent me an argan oil hair tonic (cedarwood & rose, to make my hair shiny) and a new scent called Lightning Paw that features patchouli. I happen to love patchouli. As Heather said in an email, it gets such a bad rap -- but there's good patchouli and there's bad patchouli. Lightning Paw definitely has the good kind in it. I love my little OLO collection and this one is my new favourite. I want to go sniff it right now but after a few too many glasses of wine last night with Bre and Katie, I'm feeling a little queasy, and I don't want to ruin the scent forever. I've done that in the past!
Jane Flanagan: I'm happy to hear that you like seeing these things! It's all I've got, ha.
elle :: diana mini love: You're right! It's never a waste of film.
Diana: I just love the film! Even the mistakes are pretty.
Marinka, Caitlin Rose, katie merchant / thank you, ok, Brooke: Thank you! I agree, it's a lovely collar, although maybe a bit delicate.
Phara: Thank you! Yes, I really love instant film and wish it were easier to find.
nanne: I hope you found your camera!
in dreams: Oh no, I'm sorry! Haha. Have you ever tried the Fuji instant films? I don't mind them, personally, although I do miss 600 film.
Charlyn W: That does sound like the perfect day!
gbf..., miss sophie, EvaForeva, Lalalala Jess, Cez, Polli, Bantik, beckie: Thank you!
hila: You're sweet! I've actually been afraid to break open the seals on the two packages I have left. It's a bit scary to think that this is it!
Sarah: Oh, I know! Geoff's been, and quite a few of my friends have lived in Vancouver. I hope to visit soon.
celine: To be honest I haven't had the best luck with the Impossible Project film, but this Softtone film (which was produced by Polaroid and not the Impossible Project) is wonderful!
seaing: I miss being able to find Polaroid film at the drug store!
Courtney: Yes, I agree on all counts!
