october is a great month
so far it’s treating me loads better than september. how so?
first off, a mini-buttonhole bag! i’ve been eyeing the pattern for months, and then this shows up.
oh yes, what’s inside? lush soap! in an enclosed card, cassie wrote that as she read that i don’t like candy – must have been from those sugar-free days – she got me some non-candy. when i read that, i thought ‘please don’t let it be sunflower seeds, or raisins, or…’ and then the smell hit my nose. my!
i love love lush products – just got into them this past august, but since then, i’ve developed a major passion for them. and honestly, at the risk of sounding too infomercial-ly, my skin and hair has never been happier. double yay. the soaps – three of them, count ‘em! – are delicious
thank you so much cassie ~ and yes, you clever girl, this has already motivated me to get cracking on your turtleneck shrug – though the heavenliness of the yarn (cashmere silk!) is doing it’s own motivating too
~ happy friday ~
p.s. here’s an update pic of my cable-and-lace sleeve with it’s color change. i decided to go all dramatic and do a very deep ‘cuff’. it’s pretty huh?
update: can’t help it, my mom just sent me some pics of when my sisters were born, and they just take. me. back. sigh. i love station wagons! and that other pic is of my siblings, me, and my dad peeking in the nursery window. ahh.
