    Good morning to all those just starting the last day of 2013!

    30 Roses I string tinsel everywhere for my kitty, would that keep your George entertained? I get kneaded (is that the same as patting?) when he’s bored. It’s the strangest thing it’s like he’s making bread or giving me a kitty massage.

    Robin what a amazing gift and sweet sister! Sounds like it was what you needed to finish off a less than stellar 2013.

    ((shades)) hope you are feeling better today.

    Everyone who is in the midst of the deep freeze, take care out there.

    Getting ready for this evening festivities with a double shot of risretto, it’s been a long day. Going to a ‘Mad Men’ themed New Years celebration. Dressing will be snap seamed stocking, pencil skirt and chignon. Staying awake will be much more challenging. Une Fleur de Cassie today and partying in Chanel No.5 vintage parfum and EdC this evening.

    Have wonderful day and evening everyone see you in 2014 and a for anyone still up at midnight!

    We live only to discover beauty. All else is a form of waiting. ~Kahlil Gibran

    I'm in Repetto this morning ...not sure what tonight's fragrance will be, but I'll be back later to wish everyone well, too, so I'll probably mention it then. In the meantime, y'all have a great day!

    Good morning, everyone! We're still in the deep freeze here, -26F this morning. When you add the wind chill it's -49, I'm glad I don't have to go out today. Yesterday when I left for an eye doctor appointment it was -20F, the cold wasn't a problems but the icy roads from the storm on Saturday were. There were several cars in the ditch and one DHL delivery truck was stuck way out in the field. He must have been going pretty fast to end up way out there when he slid off the road. Thankfully I didn't have any problems.

    I hope you feel better soon, Shades!

    Wearing 24, Faubourg this morning.





    Hard to believe this is the last day of 2013, all in all it's been a pretty good year. I want to thank all of you for being such a fun and loveable bunch. I can't tell you the number of times just reading the sotd has lifted my spirits. I love each and every one of you. I hope all of you have a wonderful 2014!! xoxo

    Xscent,

    George is funny, he'll actually reach out and pat my leg once or twice. I can almost hear him say, "Pardon me?" He's also not a lap cat at all, and only tolerates being held for brief moments-- a minute is a long time and he only lasts that long if he likes the neck/upper back massage he's getting! Pretty soon he squirms to be let down.

    I don't leave any sort of stringy things around-- no tinsel, no yarn etc. Reason is, he'll lick at it-- and because the papillae on cat's tongues face backwards, once they start licking, they can't readily disengage their tongues from the string. They will tend to swallow it (the way they swallow hair). Any "linear foreign body" can cause a lot of damage requiring surgery and can even be fatal.

    This will explain it better:

    I'm testing Perfumer's Workshop Tea Rose Amber today (thank you kalli! ) It is sweetly old-fashioned and nostalgic, and I mean that in a good way. It's like having afternoon tea with your elderly aunt and using the antique bone china tea cups ... a special treat once in a while.

    Thank you for the get well wishes! I'm getting a surprise day off today to help fully recuperate. We supposed to go to a party for my nephew's 30th birthday tonight, but neither hubby nor I really want to get out. We'll see ...

    My mother got a new cat. She belonged to my niece, who really couldn't keep in in her new apartment. My niece saw her thrown out of a car into the ditch and rescued her last summer (stupid people!) My dog Cali met her for the first time and it was so funny! Cali has not been around cats ... At first Kitty walked into the room and puffed up to about 3 times her normal size and hissed at Cali. Cali looked at me like "what is THIS?" Kitty started stalking her and finally came up to her and wanted to play ... but she let Cali know who is the boss.








    Have a fun New Year's Eve, but please everyone, stay safe!

    Posting my SOTE now as soon we'll be eating before getting ready to go out.

    This completes my first year of posting on this thread every single day, (except while on holiday) & l just want to thank everyone here for sharing their lives, fragrant thoughts, laughter & tears each day. You are truly a wonderful bunch, & l so appreciate being on this ride with you all. Here's to a very happy, peaceful & prosperous 2014!

    Today is also the anniversary of mine & Mr teardrop's first meeting, so we're celebrating four years together tonight, as well as seeing in the new year, at a party at our local pub. SOTE is Allure; his favourite.

    P.S. Cute pics, shades!

    Good luck with your year end close, Hedonist. Our office is closed this week and we face the same when we go back on Thursday.

    I love the kitty stories!

    Shades, we adopted a young cat that we found near my child's school a year a half ago. We'd never seen homeless cats there before, and it was clear she had not been lost for a long time. She was declawed, very friendly and clearly wanted human company! She didn't have a chip. Long story short, we couldn't find her owners although we tried, and she ended up with us. We have a much older male cat, who is not declawed and is bigger than she. Somehow, she managed to show him who the boss is very quickly. To this day, I think he is afraid of this smaller, younger, declawed kitty. It's all in the attitude!

    I'm in Costume National 21 today: my choice for spicy, creamy, and woody.

    Happy New Year to all!

    Hello everyone!

    We're just about ready to head out for the evening's celebrations, starting with an intimate little pre-party cocktail party, then comes the main-event soirée which will culminate at midnight as the fleur de-lys drops over Jackson Square, followed by a traditional réveillon dinner/breakfast stretching into the wee hours of the morning ...I need a fragrance that'll last! I originally had my mind all set on Amouage Gold, but at the last moment surprised myself with Sisley's Eau du Soir ...*such* a good decision. It's been such a long time since I've worn this I'd almost forgotten how perfectly glorious it is, and I've got the perfumed body cream for extra-luxurious staying power.



    Y'all have a magnificent evening, and a perfectly magical new year, too. Wishing everyone all the best for 2014, a year filled with love, laughter, and beautiful perfume! xoxo

    Synchronicity, Evangeline! I was looking through various goodies my Basenotes friends had sent over the past year and happened on Eau de Soir. I may be housebound, but I will smell festive!
