My Cat Loves His Dog Bed

My cat “Charlie” got a dog bed for Thanksgiving so we can go into food coma together, but I’m not going to let him know it’s really for dogs. It would crush his ego.

Can you see the cute little bird/sparrow living in the roses!?  Charlie doesnt know birds are supposed to be his enemy, so we all live harmoniously together. That bird had the coolest light green fohawk! 😄💜💕

How to Make Your Laundry Smell Like Your Favorite Scent

I’ve always wondered how one of my friends keeps her home smelling so fresh and unique. I can smell a blend of lemongrass and rosemary the moment I walk into her home and it’s really refreshing and identifying.

I love patchouli oil toned down with vanilla and lavender.(The best version of this scent is at SABON NY: http://www.sabonnyc.com/lotions/body-butter-1.html?fragrances=217

I was telling my friend, that I wished they had a laundry soap in that scent, so I could smell it all the time on my bedding and bath towels. Then she told me her secret.

It’s so easy and really WORKS! You put a dime sized dab of your favorite essential oil on a dryer sheet and just keep reusing and re-dabbing that sucker! I did six loads of laundry tonight(because I hate doing laundry-boringgg-I wait until I HAVE to do it) and my bedroom, kitchen mats, throw blanket, and bath towels have an amazing hint of my favorite essential oil blend on them!

There were no oil spots or residue on my linens or my dryer. I left to run an errand and when I opened the front door, I was met with a hint of my favorite scent!

I can’t believe I didn’t think of this on my own? I’ve always wondered how some women were able to make everything smell the same around their homes and now I know! I cant believe how well this works as a signature scent? It’s so easy? I don’t see why it won’t work with your favorite perfume too! LIFE CHANGING YO. TRY IT. I usually don’t blog about things like this, but I sure did want to share this tip, I was that impressed!(and excited!) 😛

Romance and a ceiling fan

I love this picture of a couple making out at a cocktail party in 1956 so much that I had to put it up on my wall.(I think the books in the background and lack of painful heels on her feet appealed to me the most.) Pretty certain I found this in an old Time Magazine book?

I was gifted a teeny tiny drill bit this weekend which led to my making a light fixture for a fan. I find this better than that boring glass it came with. I need to touch up the green and black paint, finish painting ceiling white, then plaster it with more records! I’m a rhinestone drilling, wire light fixture sculpting woman now….(flexing my muscles.)

I brought lavender and rosemary inside!

I brought cuttings inside instead of buying some flowers this month and I love it!! They have all started roots which means I can gift some to friends by spring and add more lavender along my own fencings.

I love all the butterflies lavender brings! My cat Charlie(Chaplin) is really into the rosemary and I think he wanted in on this blogging thing…?? 🙂 I’m really enjoying the crisp scents in every room! Why didn’t I do this sooner…?

I hit up a taco truck tonight..

locked out

My friend and I hit up a taco truck tonight that was a short drive out-of-town. (Totally worth the drive) It always has a ton of patrons and tonight was no exception.  The service was great though, hardly any wait at all.  We got to admire a beautiful summer night and we enjoyed a huge rib plate for $8.00? Eight dollars?  There was so much food we each had to ask for a to-go box and I love ribs!  I’m a vegetarian until I smell meat…it’s kind of sad.  I try not to eat red meat very often but if I smell ribs or carne asada, it’s over. I really appreciated the generous portions because this particular truck doesn’t really have that much overhead; this man owns his location.  It was a great time! We laughed, cracked stupid jokes, and felt like we were at an evening time picnic! I recommend hitting up a taco truck and splurging for the Coke in the glass bottle from Mexico, it was worth the extra money! It sure did taste better!  The best part though, was when I accidentally locked my keys in my back yard and my friend had to jump the fence to retrieve them….so I drove….it was the least I could do…:)
