    I'm going to see if generous lashings of vintage Chanel No. 19 can break through the crust formed on me by the unrelenting gray skies.

    If that doesn't work, I may resort to whiskey.

    Have I told you about the scent of jasmine? Have I spoken about the smell of the sea? The earth is scented. And I perfume myself to enhance what I am. That's why I can not wear a perfume that bothers me. Perfuming is an instinctive wisdom. And like all art, it requires some knowledge of yourself..."

    Good morning! Rainy and strangely warm today. I need a snow day. Or five.

    SJP Stash today. My husband immediately said, 'Cedar chest perfume today.' This is not a compliment. But it's soooooo yummy and cozy!

    There isn't anything better than smelling good and being complimented on how good you smell!

    Decluttering, among the most satisfying of pottering activities, producing the sensation (illusion?) one has control over one's surroundings. How did it go, teardrop?

    Liz B, sounds like your husband and mine attended the same seminar: Basic Descriptive Terminology for Husbands of Fragrance Wearers.

    I chose the neglected Bois de Violette this morning, but I may need to add a layer of Rose Flash to fight off the cold and gloom. Whiskey doesn't sound like a bad idea either.

    YWCA share.jpg

    Thought you folks might find these photos interesting. In 1930s, the YWCA of Milwaukee provided a safe social club for women like my mother. She had moved down from "up nort" to be a servant to a doctor's family, primarily looking after the children. It was here she learned the proper way to set a table and developed a desire for certain niceties of life. This photo from April 1932 shows the young women--and women only--at their annual spring prom. I don't know how it was decided who would borrow men's clothing so there could be paired dates. My mother and her "date" Lena are seen in the center of the detail below. Mom is looking off camera and, much to her discomfort, her ear sticks out prominently. Get a load of the woman behind them who painted on the mustache. Doctor Who, can I please have a ride in the Tardis?

    Oh, how I wish we still dressed like Quarry's pic! I'm still in my jammies and feeling especially schlubby now, lol. I recently came across a pic of my grandma and her fellow cosmetology students in the early 40's at some sort of elegant gathering, which also had me looking down (unenthusiastically) at my own ensemble.

    Lol, glad I could be of help, Jon! Adding to the hilarity, we got some rain, which left several holes in the snow around the yard. It really does look as though you came by and scooped some up!

    Jersey EdT for me today; have a great day, all!
