Another busy week! More new earrings available at Miss Val's Creations!
I love the multi-faceted hematite. These were picked up at a bead show. Their shimmer was calling me from across the room!!!! They sold the night I posted them but I have since made another pair!Milk and Honey Naturals
I received this wonderfully scented bug repellent from blogging friend CourtneyJo of Milk and HoneyNaturals.
This solid can be tossed into your purse with no worry of leakage or smelling horribly (let’s face it, wearing bug spray will repel humans as well as bugs). Its scent includes rosemary, eucalyptus and citronella. After warming it in your hands for a few seconds it can then be rubbed on your skin.Milk and Honey Naturals on Etsy also includes soaps like this yummy vanilla mint soap.
Sold shampoos like this honey lavender.
Gifts for various events. I love the concept of a favor that your guest can actually use.
Rhododendron in Bloom
One of my rhododendrons started blooming! My cheap camera took some gorgeous photos! It is amazing how the flower goes from this...
...to this in just a few days!!!
Rhododendrons are not a favorite of mine. They are pretty when they are in bloom but I find them a bit ugly the rest of the year. I am really trying to grow fond of them since they are super hearty and like New England weather.
Some of you may remember that I jumped out of a plane back in September 2010 (blogged about here). Yes that is me freefalling in the sky with a very fake smile for the camera. I started writing my bucket list that month and did the most difficult item first.
Many months later that is still the only thing I have checked of my list, but had the intentions of doing 1 thing a year.
My 38th birthday was April 11 and this year I decided to cross another item of the list to celebrate which I will be doing this afternoon. If I am not back with a blog post next week that means I have incurred a serious injury. This item is less dangerous than skydiving but the disclaimers I will have to sign are probably similar! Find out next week what crazy thing I did this time!
Have a great spring week everyone. Thank you for stopping by! ~Val
