Smells Good

Smell is a potent wizard that transports you 
across thousands of miles and all the years you have lived. 
-- Helen Keller

Can't sleep, I guess there's been a lot going on.  I'm thinking a lot about memories lately, how they can come up when you least expect it.  You can pass someone on the street and be thrown back into your past, catching the scent of maybe something your mother baked when you were little, or of a perfume worn by someone who used to love you.  These perfumes all bring memories back to me, at least for a little while.  I took the pics on a warm summer Saturday morning when anything was possible, or at least seemed more so than now in the dead of winter.

i have euphoria! holy moley.. u have so much perfume! I go through one bottle at a time. since ive been sick ive developed a really sensitive sense of smell and the perfumes i used to love - like euphoria are so strong and almost sickening! the only one i can stomach now is d&g 3 - a light summery fragrance.

PS. Your shop is great! I especially love the handwritten initial pendants. Very cool.

hi Krystal, thanks and thanks so much for following me! i MUST clarify though: the Etsy pics on my page are just a few of my favorite things that OTHER people have lovingly made that are featured on Etsy, not my work. i wish i could make all of those wonderful things tho!!

Craftiness NOW said...

Helen said...
