• Hi, Heartwood. Long time-no chat. Thanks for reminding me about the meet up. I won't be able to go, because of my current work schedule. Wishing you and the others a fun time~

    Good Friday is a day of repentence and prayer, a day to remember Gods sacrifice for us, a day to ask forgiveness, a day to renew our relationship with God.
    “Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come.”

    Spring makes its own statement, so loud and clear that the gardener seems to be only one of the instruments, not the composer.

    Heya <3Wood

    I noticed you menioned Dark Amber and Ginger Lily on the latest Jo Malone article.
    I've just recieved a bunch of samples of JM and DA+GL is the first I've tried and I must say I really like it too! I find it's longevity amazing even though the sillage is minimal. I can still smell it on my skin from my testing of it last night.

    RE: The person who used "housewife" as an insult - I sat there and typed and retyped my comment and the attempts ranged from cursing and screaming to winking and smiling but I finally settled on vaugely insulted. My knee-jerk reaction was to virtually grab the kid by the neck and shake him till he cried for his own Mama but of course that would be impolite. :D

    I read 300 years ago somewhere that you're a new Mum/Mom (I saw your tummy when you posted a pic on a thread) - I hope everything went well and that things continue to be well for you and yours! Mine are about to start school - man time flies. D:

    Cheers, Kal
    If only we'd stop trying to be happy we could have a pretty good time. ~Edith Wharton
    The value of consistent prayer is not that He will hear us, but that we will hear Him. ~William McGill
    !!!! It's good to hear from you! :) Yes, it does get better. Sort of! He's nearly walking now (at 12 months), and that means a different kind of busy! 'Still, when I get home from work, the only time I can get a chance to be online is when he is asleep. (Hence this message to you at 5:50 AM!) It's all good though!!! *HUGS!*
    All the best to you and yours! You look *fantastic* too! -(Gentle) hugs, ComDiva/Catherine
    The mini of Oro just arrived. I've only had it on for about ten minutes, but it didn't even take that long for me to put a full bottle at the top of my Wish List (the affordable beauties always move ahead of the Malles and Mecheris.) I love this stuff! It's gorgeous - warm and woodsy and smooth - sooooo nice! Unique, too - it really doesn't remind me of anything else, at least in my wardrobe. And the sillage is making me swoon. Thank you so much for recommending this one - it's truly an Unsung Treasure!

    Isn't basenotes awesome?!? :)
    I just had a look at your gorgeous kitties! Did I count right - you have seven?? Wow. I thought we had a handfull with six! So is Syracuse the most recent addition - the stray you mentioned? She's beautiful! I laughed out loud at some of your notes - I heart that haughty little Yum Yum Princess! They all have great names, too.....is Pelli short for anything?

    (I also laughed at the caption you have above your pic here - I know you're referring to the calla lily, but it looks like you're admitting to being "such a strange flower" yourself....hee!) :)
    I'm glad that you finally got to try it. Very expensive though--395 for 1.7 ounces. Where do they think that people will get that kind of money?

    I hope that you are well. How far along are you now? Better not buy any By Kilian perfumes until you're settled with your papoose.

    Take care of yourself.
    Perfumed Hugs,(Une Rose-Fredrick Malle)
    Happy Easter dear-and don't forget to eat for two!!!
    Big Hugs,
    Greetings and Best Wishes from SillageMonger! A quick question for you: How many cats do you have??? It looks like you might have us beat. We have 5 of our own and one foster cat at present! To me, life isn't complete without a flock of felines to share it with!!!

    I have tried Bois D'armerie and I don't really care for it on my skin. The same with L'heure Bleue--It's divine on paper or on someone else-but on me--it smell bitter. Sigh......

    Take care of yourself and get lots of rest.
    Looking forward to seeing pictures after you settle down into some kind of routine where you are not extreemely sleep deprived.
    What wonderful news - CONGRATULATIONS!
    -like someone else said in the mem pics thread; you will enter an entirely new world! :)

    Man!!!!! I'm definately stalking you. Just wanted to tell you that I put up pictures of Gracie when she was a baby. You can click on the pictures to enlarge them. The first picture-with her paw in a downspout--was taken by the breeder--she was 7 1/2 weeks old. Oh, I almost forgot--in the avatar--the young girls is my daughter and the older lady is me.
    I feel like I'm stalking you--there are so many messages from me. Anyways, thank you for being my friend!!!
    Will you be my fwend please? I'll have my album up soon when my daughters have enought time to help me. They are so busy doing probably not much at all. Oh--lonesome me.
    I love your cats!! The picture of the one in the sink is priceless. When my girls are in a co-operative mood; I'll have them help me put up my picture and a bigger version of Gracie's picture. She has a mask of darker hair on her face which you can't see in the small avatar--but thanks for the compliment. I love people who say that Gracie is cute. She's my immortal beloved...I'm crazy about her.
    Hi California Oud Girl,
    I don't know how to decant or I would send you more than 1 sample of this lovely oud. Also, my mother lives in California and it takes 1 1/2 to 2 weeks for mail to get to her wheras stuff from europe only takes 5 days. That makes alot of sense doesn't it!
    Let me know what you think when you finally get your hands on it.
    I am a mother of 3 girls and we all think that you look very pretty in your avatar. My avatar picture is my 4th girl-her name is Gracie.
    I ordered a sample from lucky scent. It only took a week to arrive and I live in Canada. There's a a very good review on Pure Oud By By Kilian by a person named Kankouro. It's on the fragrantica.com website. Check it out. I also wrote a review which is not as good. I thought that you might be interested.
    Kind Regards,
    Have you tried the new Pure Oud by By Kilian?
    Eleanore--a complete stranger-but a friendly and harmless one
    SO good to see you back again! Showin' some love!
    Another shout-out to say we miss you an_oud_girl! :)
