    I'm wearing By Kilian Love and Tears, Surrender today for SnS-floral version.

    A little OT, but I wanted to share! I have looked high and low for a vintage bunny vase ... and while this one isn't exactly what I wanted, this bunny was too charming to leave behind. I found the pink roses at the grocery store marked down to $5 for a dozen. This picture was taken on my front porch, but the bunny is now residing in my foyer. She is wishing everyone a happy holiday!

    I've trademarked the color bleu

    Well done Larimar! Glad you made it to Maison FK too! I wish I had the heart to drag my DH there in March but he is "not into" scent. BTW, if anyone wants to organize a Paris (or Grasse) meet-up, I am all in.

    Welcome back, Larimar! Glad to hear you had a good trip.

    (((Twolf and Mimi)))

    Twolf, that's a pretty interesting dream you had, lol, orange blossom and honey dressing sounds interesting. Sure enough there are recipes for it, I'll have to give them a try sometime!

    Mimi, I'm doing fine, just been busy with some projects at home that I wanted done by Easter, so I haven't been around very much lately.

    I lost my avatar when I was trying to change it, so a word of warning, don't try to change your avatar or profile picture til they get the problem of uploading them fixed.

    My SotD and also in sync, is Cartier Baiser Vole. Lovely lilies, what could be better or more perfect for the season?

    Welcome back, Larimar! Missed you! and owe you a PM since the time I have put my life on hold

    The SnS Floral decision was made -- I am exploring a flower which usually gives me a hard time: tuberose. LAP Nuit de Tubereuse for today.

    Good Evening,

    Congrats on a great haul, Larimar!
    *Dora* - Congrats to your daughter. My sincerest sympathies though with regards the country's bleak future. It seems Greece and Spain really are facing some terribly difficult times. Anyway, fingers crossed she can get onto the course she wants.

    SotE is MKK.
    Best to all.

    Oh Larimar - your trip to Paris sounds fantastic (I'm super jealous!) and while I never have enjoyed No. 5 or Vega, now your descriptions have motivated me to try it next time I'm at a Guerlain counter. Is Vega very aldehydic, as I remember it?
    Kewart - a few yards is okay, do more tomorrow and more the next - slowly, but surely.
    Evangeline - wasn't it just a picture perfect day in Florida today? I had breakfast with Ray down the street, at one of his favorite restaurants, and then when I got home I couldn't resist getting sun in the backyard (even though our landscaper was cutting the grass...I felt sort of guilty just lying there while he was sweating and working...oh well), and the smell of cut grass is always a treat, isn't it?
    Lilybelle and Kilwia - you both have put me in a lily mood, I think later on, when I head over to my family's house for a mini family reunion we're having today I'll wear the only lily I like, Anais Anais.
    Shadesofbleu - the vintage bunny vase is great, love the roses...a classy and stylish Easter decoration!


    This morning, in the sweltering heat, it felt good to spray on:

    Anbar (Series 4: Cologne) by Comme des Garcons



    I call it the poor-man's Neroli Portofino by T Ford. It's not as juicy as the NP top notes, but besides that it is very close and does that modern-4711 thing so well.

    KarmaLee, that was an evocative and enjoyable post.

    Today my second-to-oldest daughter and I both (independently) dressed in different colleges' "advocate" shirts (GLBTetc organizations, pro-love groups I always think of these as; the world can always use more love) and Body Shop Mango lotion and Jailia We are very synchronized.

    Hey y'all -

    I've got the day's sand and surf off me now, and I'm in Ysatis for the evening. Have a wonderful night, everyone!



    Thanks Wolfie, thanks *dora*! Yes indeed mike, the entire day was simply gorgeous, and I'm counting on more of the same for the entire week!

    lilybelle - Tony took that pic the last time we were here, but it's exactly the same spot where I started my run this morning so I thought I'd use it. We had actually been up all night and decided we might as well wait for the sunrise ...I think it was worth it, even if just for that photo. I'm glad you like it!
    Science is not only compatible with spirituality, it is a profound source of spirituality.

    Shades, that is a very charming bunny. I love her.

    Mike, I’m glad my username inspires you to wear lily.

    Evangeline, that pic is so great, just like a postcard.

    I’m wearing some vintage Y parfum tonight. Swoon!!! This is a masterpiece, imho.

    p.s. I am still having a terrible time posting here. Jumps all over the place and throws me off of the reply box, posts the reply before I’m ready to. Am I the only one?

    Lilybelle, whatever it was with BN got us good -- the mouse was allowing us to make only three clicks, and after that the page -- various sites, not just BN -- would either go frozen or load infinitely, so I had to log out of Internet altogether and start all over again. We have uploaded Ubantu (free) -- and it does have its disadvantages as compared to Windows -- but the system has been stable for about two days now. *knocking on the wood* \

    Diane by Diane von Furstenberg for tonight.

    Hi all! Haunani, there must be a story behind that picture? Do tell!

    Picked Guerlain's Nuit d'Amour in line with SnS. It was a blind buy... And not a bad one at that!

    Hi RainDrop! (We're on Kaua'i now – waving across channel!) No, there's no story behind the picture that involves me. I was looking for a painting of a chic, sophisticated woman and ran across this one. Turns out it was a collaborative painting. I find it fascinating that it turned out so good!
