Little Treats

I have decided that, during this period of unemployment, I will allow myself a weekly treat. Nothing extravagant, just a little boost for me to enjoy. Today I went to do my food shopping but first I indulged in a cappuccino, then I bought samplers of the new Spring fragrances from Yankee Candle.

I like using these little votives but I'm still working my way through the Christmassy ones at the moment, so as soon as I light one of these it will feel like Spring! (a bit) They all smell delicious, although I was dubious of Pink Lady Slipper at first. Who would want to scent their home with the odour of their grannie's old houseshoes?? Ahem.

Craft-wise, the bug for making "New Home" cards seems to have bitten me, but I was less than happy with this one. Sometimes the "collage" effect does somewhat run the risk of looking like a five- year-old has made it (apologies to all artistically-skilled five-year-olds out there!) and this one proves that:

Oh dear. Some things just weren't meant to work. Never mind. I will consign it to my card box, just in case anyone does think it has a certain charm....Sigh.

It is good to treat yourself - saw these new scents on QVC the other day so will have to have a look out for them.

Toni :o)
