Shades, I hope things go smoothly for you.
Foustie, I began typing "paint color elephan" and Google filled in the rest. Is that color located near the travertine? They would seem complimentary. Feathering one's nest is just so darned exciting. I've forgotten which frags PerfumeLady prefers, but I remember distinctly that she got a new metal roof last year. The other day I was revisiting Brielle's house in my mind (she put me up when I attended the Boston meet-up). I look forward to hearing about your hanging pictures and placing your beloved objets d'art. But, umm, what's a sparky?
Congratulations, EasyFish, on 4,000 posts.
I'm a big fan of your artful finds.
Giving Mona di Orio's Tubereuse a fair trial. Its top notes are challengingly stinky-good, not quite horsey or fecal, but slightly like rotting compost with sweet fruit. Those notes fade pretty quickly, but they're kind of a hoot. When DH or DD encounter me later, I think they may furrow their brows. No, it's not Mom's usual, but Mom gets bored, and she can travel the scent trail less traveled every once in a while. Today, that's a sweet, buttery floral.
