The paperwhites have been relocated to my bathroom.
Once they burst into full bloom, David could no longer tolerate the scent in our living room (he's very particular about scents). So...they've been whisked away to the master bathroom (which only I use):
I think they look very pretty here, with all the girlishness going on. You've never seen this tiny room before, but it's one of my favorite spaces in the house. It's painted White Down (OC-131), a nice antique white from Benjamin Moore, the same colour as the master bedroom.
I recently added the little jewellery rack to corral some of my often-worn necklaces:
I have always been a pearl fanatic and have several very good Tahitian black pearl pieces (not shown here). I also love white pearls - these ones are all costume. The three plain white strands came from my grandmother:
I really like the clasp on this one and wear these a lot. Maybe some day I will get a real strand of pearls:
I don't wear much perfume but have a couple of favorites, including Burberry Classic and a little perfume solid by Tokyo Milk called Sencha Bleu (which I discovered at the Thompson & Hanson garden center store in Houston!). I love the Fig Apricot perfume shown below, but it's too strong and too literal to wear, so I sometimes just use it as a room spray.
I forgot to include my favorite Jo Malone perfume which I bought in Paris! I will include it in the next photo shoot...
I also like Banana Republic's discontinued Malachite, which reminds me of childhood - it smells just like the perfume solid inside those Avon perfume brooches my mother sometimes bought when I was a kid.
So the narcissus has a perfect home with its sweet beauty and its heady scent...!
