Delightful Surprises......

I came home from a crazy day of errands and meetings to the most delighful of surprises. Jill, of For Strange Women, had sent me a lovely little care package of her newest sea salts.

A few months ago she had mentioned working on this new concoction and then casually threw in that she would send me a sample when she was finished. You can read about her newest creation here. The mix is 100% essential oil fragranced & they smell absolutely divine. Exactly like the sea. I can't wait to use them. In fact, I'm going to go soak in the tub right now.


Thanks Jill!

lazy sunday.

After yesterday's hurricane, I was amazed to wake up this morning to see this. How lucky I am to live in such a beautiful city.

Spring! I think it's getting ready to sprung.

View from the other end of my neighborhood. I want to take a trip to one of the Islands this summer. Any good suggestions?

Happy resting spot.

I had the pink one. yum. Now I'm going to spend the next 11 hours doing absolutely nothing.

love is in the air.....

Thanks so much to my pal Heidi, of Haute Goat this past week for some wonderful (free) Sweet Petula advertising! You can see the post here....and a darling photo of Heidi working her flower Valentine's Day. There is a discount code at the end for 25% off at Sweet Petula.

Have a great weekend everyone!

i have a valentine for you.

{my Love Potion No. 9 soap sitting on top of the coolest book. Have you heard of *Rob Ryan?}

Happy Valentine's Day (weekend) everyone!
For the record, I think Valentine's Day is a little played out.....all the pressure to be in a relationship and to celebrate the fact on February 14th, in a very specific way.
But I do love, here is a little Valentine from me to you.
{but don't get any funny ideas...I think we should just be friends}
Stop by Capers in West Seattle before Monday, and with any Sweet Petula purchase, the nice ladies behind the counter will throw in a bar of my Love Potion No. 9 soap.

Seattle, WA 98116
Open Monday-Saturday 10-6
Sunday 11-5

*I love Rob Ryan! He is an amazing paper artist that uses lasers to cut and design images. My favorite is "Can We Shall We." It is a special laser cut he made just for Valentine's Day. You can see many of his images in the book I mentioned above. It is also available at Capers.
"Can We? Shall We? One day very soon, let us go away together, just you and me. Can We? Shall We? Call in sick one day and travel to the sea and hold hands all day. Can We? Shall We? Eat our sandwiches on the train, get drunk on fresh air and come home tired and never tell anyone...Ever."

New Year's Resolution

"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful" - William Morris~
I do pretty well with keeping things simple. (my "stuff" pile anyway) But I'm wanting to pare down even further. Get rid of the extraneous and anything that does not please me. It's sort of like your underwear drawer. You know how you have your favorite pair? The style you always reach for that make you feel great? And how there are about 6-10 other pairs in there you only wear on wash day? Why not get rid of them? I'm thinking everyday should be favorite panty day.
