Easy breezy

It’s a good tea day today. No tv, just some flowy Marion McPartland piano jazz, a fire, a good short book and a cup of chamomile to top off a day of back ache and a migraine headache. πŸ˜• Today is a welcome chilly and breezy day in the burgh. A good cup of herbal tea always makes a crispy Sunday afternoon better. Chamomile is my fave and is a tisane, meaning there is no actual tea involved. A light apple flavor lends itself to the changing of the seasons. Perfect for the days when I’m not feeling a hundred percent. Available at The Stillroom inside of Diamond Antiques and Gifts in Tarentum.

Octoboo

I just love this cute wooden wreath I found at Diamond Antiques and Gifts in Cheryl’s booth. It has a Victorian vintage vibe and is a nice change for my front door. Like most, I tend to use my gently used holiday decor from year to year. When I spied these, it was time for a little change up. Affordable and glittery! I love shiny thingsβœ¨πŸ‘»πŸ§™β€β™€οΈ

The Stillroom

“Herbs do comfort the weary brain with fragrant smells which yields a certain kind of nourishment”

A quote from William Coles~1626

I found this old oil can in the garage. I picked it up at an estate sale years ago and just stuck it on a shelf. It is now holding incense. This will be perfect for displaying a stick in the shop…unlit of course. One unlit stick still works to scent a space. The traditional Nag Champa is a delight. The Stillroom is ramping up the perfumee part of what a Stillroom is meant to be.

Tea, fragrance and floral flavors.πŸͺ΄πŸ«–β˜•οΈπŸŒ»

Dog lamp πŸͺ”

Hmmmm. Should I celebrate National Better Breakfast Day? Or maybe Johnny Appleseed Day? Perhaps Family Health and Fitness Day. How about Dumpling Day. National Pancake Day? I think after all of this food Shamu the Whale Day might be more “fitting”. Maybe I’ll just go with National Love Note Day! ❀️

One good thing

I can’t do too much since the hand procedure. For my physical therapy I untangled these cute pumpkin lights that were a tangled mess. I bought these a few years ago at Pier 1 and I love these little guys. They are tucked into a really heavy iron piece that can be used as a spice rack or if you have little glass vases is can be used to display flowers. (This is how it was used in the store Where I found it). The first pic is when I thought I’d use it on its side to raise up some of the display but that didn’t work. I turned it the way it’s supposed to be and tucked those pumpkins in each slot. Anyhow, this is my little fall display where I make my coffee in the morning. The pumpkin lights are battery operated and the grapevine pumpkin is a plug in that is used for a night light. This is what I do while I heal. The Claire Burke order came today along with scone mixes. Yay! I’ll be pricing and getting it on the shelves for next week. Also, I finally found the place (after a lot of online investigation) where the Claire Burke sight allows me to get free shipping! Now instead of fourteen dollars per spray, they are now $9.50! That makes me very πŸ˜ƒ That is one good thing. Plus my one functioning hand. So, two good things. I’ll take it.πŸŽ‰πŸŽƒπŸ™‹πŸ½β€β™€οΈ
