Monday Mentionable's

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....


'Tis the Season...

Since we are all, most likely, in the gift giving state of mind I thought I would share a few items that I enjoy.  Things I have liked to receive and give.

Stay tuned for 'Monday Mentionable's'

Ta Da!

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?
