Welcome to the first edition of 'Monday Mentionable's' (cue nightly news music)
My first item was a gift from my sister-in-law. It is a wonderful body oil from Sabon.
The scent I have is Amber, which I don't think they make anymore, but they have a nice selection of fragrances from which to choose. It's a lovely, non-greasy, body oil that I spray on after the shower. I usually just spray it on my arms and gently rub it in. I think I would like to try the 'Patchouli Lavender Vanilla' next (hint hint).
Here is the current design of the bottles, a little different from the one I have:
I hope this finds its way into your stocking this year, or maybe it's the perfect gift to give to that special someone....

I chose "Bold Brick" by Sherwin Williams for the door. It's growing on me. It's not the color I was picturing in my head. I think it has a bit too much coral in it instead of reddish/brown. But, none the less, it is growing on me and I love it more and more each day. As much as you can love your front door that is...
We still have the lighting to install and some landscaping to do. I have the exterior lights picked out from this site and am 90% sure on the interior foyer light.
As for the landscaping I want to do a pea-gravel walkway and add a few boxwoods around the deck. The planting will probably wait until Spring as it got very cold over the last week and planting now would probably not be a good idea. Hopefully we can get the pea-gravel walkway in though.
The 'wrapping up' process at the end of a project always seems to take the longest, but it will be worth it in the end. I like to really take my time with things to make sure I am making the correct decision.
What do you think? Have I been making correct decisions?
