It's getting so pretty outside! I love when the lilacs bloom. They're so pretty and smell so sweet and fresh. We have lilac bushes all over our yard and it's like a purple fence when they're all blooming together.
Yes, that's a topsy-turvy tomato planter. Mom gave it to me for Mother's Day (along with the Mighty Mend-it glue, yay!). I planted a variety that's supposed to give us tomatoes in 45 days or so. It's a cool idea - I put it where the plant will get lots of sunlight so it should do really well. I also put some plants below it. Before long we'll be having BLT's all the time!
I couldn't resist the beautiful coleus and bugleweed. The colors really add to the yard. I've not had either type of plant before so I hope I can take care of them right. Of course, the flowers were on sale as well so Khloe and I picked out a few to decorate the front yard. Aren't they great? Khloe picked out and planted the really bright ones - they're so cheerful.
I recently ordered a bottle of perfume oil from Happy Housewife. It's called Seance and I love it! (Miss Violet, if you have any extra that you need to get rid of, feel free to send them here!) It's a bit sweet but also musky and rich - I don't really know how to describe it. I was kind of surprised at how big the bottle is - it's a really good deal. Violet is really generous with her stuff. I love handmade perfume oils anyway. Etsy is so great for scents. I got a solid perfume called Comfy Sweater from Poppy Lane that's wonderful and delicious. Seriously, if you're looking for a new fragrance you should really check out etsy or Violet. Besides a great new fragrance you usually get a sample or two of other selections.
Speaking of free samples, what do you think of me giving a sample skein or two with each yarn purchase? I really need to find a way to thank my customers besides just a note. Any ideas?
Well, I'm off to life now. See you later!
