I'm a big fan of any kind of scent that has the ability to transport me from one mood to another. Better yet, imagine a scent that can capture a place and time. CB I Hate Perfume seems to have a special ability to do just that with scents like "In the Library" or "Memory of Kindness".
At the Beach 1966 seems like the perfect escape from the winter blues. The description from CB I Hate Perfume reads, "The prime note in this scent is Coppertone 1967 blended with a new accord I created especially for this perfume – North Atlantic. The base of the scent contains a bit of Wet Sand, Seashell, Driftwood and just a hint of Boardwalk. The effect when you wear At The Beach 1966 is as if you've been swimming all day in the ocean."

My Mom is the same way. She has magazines that must date back to the 70's, and she knows if you've touched them. She knows.
Of course I have guilt about all that paper. I know it’s not good for the planet, but if I let a magazine go, I recycle. Anywho, I'm very sad today because I keep learning of more magazines biting the dust. Today it was Domino. Last week it was Country Home and before that it was Cottage Living.
Something has to change, so that I don’t lose one of my favorite pastimes. There are some good thoughts about this topic being expressed over at the blog Please sir. Check it out and add your two cents.

I guess I'll take out my garden journal and start planning and dreaming of the moment I can get my hands dirty instead of giving a rat’s patooty about the dust balls.
P.S. That pretty little peony is from my garden. I transplanted a bunch in the fall and can't wait to see the results.

But the icy winter weather is no problem when you have Smartwool. I live in Smartwool socks. They are so comfortable, and they keep my toes toasty warm. The best thing--they’re durable. I’ve washed them a million times. I’ve gone on hundreds of hikes. I’ve walked outside in them—without shoes (to get the cats or call for my daughter)—dozens of times. They still keep my toes toasty warm.
Get yourself some Smartwool Socks. You can wear them all-year-round, but you’ll be especially happy if the weather in your farmhouse is as cold as mine.

The Sweetheart Conversation Hearts are an American icon, and their sweet little g-rated messages have been part of Valentine's Day traditions since 1902. Hard to believe that the New England based company, Necco came up with the concept when Abraham Lincoln was still the Pres.
