Colored Stones!

In the days of Isabella and Stewart (the middle 1850’s) it was considered the height of vulgarity to own or wear colored stones. So, rubies, emeralds, sapphires, topazes, or any other stone of that sort were avoided, and diamonds and pearls were the only really...

A Nice Sign

Last night I worked until a bit after 6 p.m. at the office. I was dreading going out into the gloom and I saw that the sky was still a bit lit up! When I went out to the car it was not pitch black and I didn’t need my little keychain flashlight. Oh, that is the...

Valentine’s Scents at Possets!

Possets has just announced its Valentine line of fragrances. Quite a few of them are associated with Dark Matter the Victorian romance novelette serialized and sprinkled with links to the perfumes mentioned in the story. Great fun. Stewart and Isabella have run away...

Beez-ness

Gad, all day long I have been doing business things and not creative things! Ah hates that. Feels like my time has been co-opted by corporations. The the HVAC man turned off the heat in my building, then I had to hunt him down and get him to turn it back on (he was...

…First, You Have To Be A Man…

Such an ironic story. When I was a child I once solemnly entered my mother’s bedroom to announce that I had decided what I wanted to be when I grew up. I was about seven, and very serious. I knew exactly what I wanted to do for the rest of my life and so I...

Where Are The REALLY High End Natural Fragrances

One of the people on my forum asked the question of where the really really really high end perfumers who do 100% Natural perfumes are. That was a good question. You don’t see them advertised in airplane duty free magazines, or on the Champs Elysee or in the...

Ice

Last night I was working off some of my holiday calories by shoveling snow in front of my house. It was about 5 p.m. and the snow had stopped for the most part. I shoveled and shoveled, scraped and threw loads of snow around making a path up to our front door and...

Snow Day…

Well, the flakes are still falling here in Cincinnati. I went into the Possetorium for a while this morning but got out pretty quickly as things were becoming icy and I don’t think the city did much about the side streets this time. So, I stayed at home and did...

On St. Fabian’s Day!

Today is St. Fabian’s Day! A little known holiday to everyone but most Fabienne’s (and Fabians) around the world. He is, as you might guess, my patron saint, and also the patron saint of leadworkers, which makes him just ideal as an object of supplication...

New Keyboard Ha Ha Ha

I try not to be a string saver, I fight it but I try. My husband had to get a new keyboard because his old one would not work with the new computer he had to get. He was unhappy about that because the old keyboard was expensive and it suited him. It was cordless and...
