It has been so hot here this past week that I have postponed the fall clean-up in the garden and instead started the fall clean-up in the house. I take one room at a time and do what I call a 'deep cleaning' then I can sit back and relax for a while with just a little dusting and vacuuming. It takes a while but it is so satisfying when the whole house is clean.
On a short break from all the cleaning I paid a visit to Marshall's and this box caught my eye. When I lifted the lid and a the wonderful fragrance wafted out I was a goner.
Inside was soy wax candle: Autumn Rose, perfect for the season.
I immediately decided that this would make a great reward for all of my hard work
I have promised myself not to light it until the entire job is done...but it is so tempting. It will be so nice to have the house not only clean, but softly rose scented.
These lovely roses are one of my favorites: Bewitched a perfect name for the perfect pink rose.
Miss Twiggley does not like the noise of the vacuum but she does like sitting next to me on the bathroom counter and advising me when I am applying make-up. She says, "less is more"~ spoken like the natural beauty she is!
