things I am liking right now
I think I like it.
It takes me a few issues to decide completely if I am enamoured of a magazine, but I think this one is going to pass the test.
Excellent articles on design, architecture and green living -
because I kid myself that we try to live green-ly
in much the same way that I kid myself that I am crafty --
My Agnes B. poofy beret.
It's 100% wool and can be a tad itchy -
but it's poofy and floppy and can be several different hats, depending on my mood.
Wooden venetian blinds.
I'm liking the idea of them right now -
for my upstairs bathroom, where we are right ON THE BRINK of actually taking action toward our renovation.
Tide Simple Pleasures Rose and Violet.
The violet is just blue enough to mute the rose-ness of the whole thing.
You'll like it.
And speaking of soap -
Pacifica, which is ALL KINDS OF ENVIRONMENTALLY CORRECT, now makes this wonderful soap. The sandalwood scent is nearly too much for me and I find that I have to sneak a sniff of K's wrist whenever I can.
But before I wash with the Pacifica Sandalwood soap, I need to lather up with this:
and YES, I do wash my hair first so that the soap leaves a scent on me rather than the shampoo. Who wants to smell like shampoo?
This shampoo is for 'sleek, shiny' hair and I like the way it plasters my agonizingly thin locks to my small, pea-like head.
Does he always wear a black turtleneck?
Because I wear a lot of black turtlenecks.
And Steve and I have a lot in common.
Set Editions has a wonderful, um, set of letterpress cards with sailing knots on them.
I like them.
I am liking decaf Masala Chai -
with some of this.
German rock cane sugar.
And I like to have some of this with my tea.
Date nut bread with cream cheese.
Which I prefer open faced.
Have you had this?
Because I really really like this.
And this too -
I like this.
