        1. I've found a solution! I smash up bath bombs and add chunks of Hesse to the shower floor. I only have a shower and so it's great do find a good use for bath bombs other than for air freshening

  1. Great idea! I tend to put some oils on the burner in whatever room I want to relax, including the bathroom. But I can totally see how all that fragrant steam would be lush.

    1. I use a burner in the living room, bedroom and kitchen but the shower thing really is bliss and the slippery floor thing can be got round by sprinkling the oils on to a flannel and putting that directly under the water… if you can't get these gorgeous shower tablets that is…

  2. I didn't realize how meaningful your site had become to me until I went to check in one day and discovered that you had taken it down for a bit. I was so disappointed–I actually uttered the words "oh, no!" Silly, I thought, since I hadn't been following the site for all that long–in fact, I stumbled upon it accidently while searching for information on Sarah Ban Breathnach. I'm not sure what about it caught my attention, but I was intrigued. I spent a lot of time that day reading backward through your posts–I felt like I somehow knew you. Maybe it's because your writing comes across as pretty authentic. At any rate, you articulate so well what it is that I cherish in my own life, as well as convey the fairly raw sense of emotion that often accompanies challenges and change. Our desires and experiences touch on many shared characteristics. I'm sure that's why I find your posts inspirational. I've strived for years to create and nurture the lifestyle you seem to embrace. For a while I felt like I was really getting there. Then my life was turned upside down. While I won't say I'm starting over, I am starting again, and while I know my path has changed course, I can't see with clarity where it's going at the moment. The one thing I know for sure is that in my heart of hearts, I am an aspiring Vintage Housekeeper–it's in large part thanks to you that I can finally define my values in this regard, for which I am most grateful. On the surface this may seem like a small thing, but it's actually the foundation I've needed on which to rebuild my life. So for that, I thank you. Your work has touched my soul and fed my spirit in a way I truly needed at this time in my life, and I'm grateful for your willingness to share. Wherever my path may lead in the future, I hope it affords me the opportunity to pay your favors forward. In the meantime, I appreciate the opportunity to stay in touch as I give my attention to the present. Glad to see you back. Thanks again for all you do 🙂

  3. I never knew these existed. They have medicated ones for colds and such but I thought they'd be too strong for everyday use. Thanks for sharing!
