The only nickname I ever had was Gypsy. And the only person who ever used it was my father. It seems as soon as I could recognize different colors I loved them all. When allowed, I wore them all, at the same time. Nowadays I jokingly say my apartment is decorated Ringling Brothers style. (For those of you outside the USA, Ringling Brothers is a reference to a famous circus.)
You’ve already seen my glitter curtains. Now you’ve got to see my new side table – it’s teal. Not too blue and not too green, a perfect shade of teal. I bought it because I wanted to put an essential oil diffuser in my living room and there was no place for it. As the fates would have it when I took the the diffuser out of the closet it turned out to be the exact same shade of teal. How’s that for a crazy coincidence, that thing has been in the back of the closet for years.
Lest you think my husband is either color blind or very indulgent, since this is his home too, I consult him on all my crazy color choices and wacky home décor. He is an active participant.
My diffuser oil of choice is lavender. I am passionate about lavender essential oil and I send lavender scented gifts to my friends, especially when I notice they are getting a little stressed. I’m all about the purple – any shade but pinky-purple – don’t like that one. I have a diffuser in the bedroom and over the last few years I’ve gone through a lot of different brands of lavender essential oil. I was not well pleased with any of them.
I wear Lavandre cologne from L’Occitane and they do sell lavender essential oil but for some reason I’ve never bought it from them. I found a new source of lavender oil and as luck would have it (again with the luck!) my new table and the lavender oil came on the same day and I was able to set up the table and the diffuser in short order. (If you look closely you might see the mist). I’ve got to say it smells divine. It was packaged well, so no spills and the price is quite reasonable.
Oh, the table. It is SOLID wood, no assembly required, it was made in the USA, and I bought it from Target of all places, on sale no less. Talk about luck and fate and stars aligning!
So, just in case you want to do some shopping I’m going to put links to all these products/companies. No, I am NOT any kind of “associate” and I do NOT get compensated for sharing this information. I’m just a nice person who likes to share good stuff when I find it.
Happy clicking! (These are US based links. And they should open in a new window/tab – just sayin’)
