Is that cryptic enough for you? Well, here’s the thing. There are WINNERS! That’s you guys – specifically
Michelle who won Dreams of Smoke
and Rina! who won the Amouage Sunshine sample.
you know the drill, right? drop me a line (anitaatperfumepossedawtcom)
Loser? That would be me. Because after 2 full days of reading forms that would make Draco spin in his grave, they’re so convoluted, I’m still all duuuh! on Prevailing Wage and I’m neck-deep in it (and the gub’mint really does expect you to get it right and I don’t even know what luteman or a dinkey is). So this is going to be a quickie and I’m hoping to get back to normal next week.
So here’s the down and dirty – but it’s an interesting down and dirty annnnnd if you play along I will send a lucky commenter a nice haulette from the Messy Armoire!
A few days ago, my pal Mark, from Petals (omgosh! THE CUTEST flower/gift shop!) posted a House Beautiful post about DIY trends that are way past their prime. I often wonder that about design in general. Take subway tiles. Design shows and magazines have gone to a lot of trouble to convince us that subway tiles are a classic design choice – and they are. In subways, like le Metro. And bistros. Not in your average US house. I grew up in that ‘average’ US house. And my wealthier cousins lived in above-average US houses. And my po’ folks lived…well, you get it. US Houses. And…to a house…the tiles were square.
So I wonder…in a decade, will we look at all these gorgeous subway tiles (and they are gorgeous) and say ‘oh, these are so 2010’? Trellis-patterned fabric? Stainless appliances (which a lot of people are pushing back on)? I am watching…waiting…what will be this decade’s avocado?
I was going to ask you about what you think this decade’s perfume ‘avocado’ will be – but it’ll be more interesting to let y’all just run with it! Choose perfume, design, fashion, books, food…I don’t care. But I am eager to know what your opinion(s) are on The Next Avocado!
