The Lush stuff Andréa ordered arrived. Woohoo! Check out the unboxing from a couple of weeks ago here.
Why is this exciting?
I like the smell of Lush stuff.
After a year of bathroom renovations, I want to decorate our bathroom with some nice stuff. By nice, I mean smells good, looks nice.
Why are you telling us this?
There is an art/4Cats connection, I am getting to it!
I married a wonderful artist 20 years ago. Darryl, my husband, is also an amazing builder. Which I am really happy about. He can basically draw, paint, sculpt, build, figure out anything we need.
We like fixer uppers, our house is a fixer upper, our studios are generally fixer uppers and we do all the work ourselves, Darryl builds, I help and I come up with the decorating plan.
But we are really, really, really, busy (which we love.) We have 3 boys, 9 cats, 3 dogs and a constant stream of wonderful guests, so sometimes renos can take quite a bit of time.
And every single room in my house is under renovation. Not an exaggeration.
Darryl sent me the following quote which I have taken to heart to help me deal with the constant renovations:
But for us, building, making, painting walls and decorating are definitely an art form in itself!
Hence why the lush products tie in with the art & 4Cats! They look beautiful, are super colourful and, obviously, smell delicious.
I understand art is not just the fine arts. There can be art in living.
Everything can be art as Andy Warhol would say, "There is magic in everything!"
For me, a nicely organized bathroom is art.
A beautiful kitchen is art.
A welcoming and great smelling house is art.
A beautiful dinner with family and friends is art.
And so as one of my favourite quotes says:
"I'm going to make everything around me beautiful, and that will be my life."
I think, for us, it is a good plan.
Stay tuned! Next, I am going to look at some Salt Spring Soapworks products, which are from where I live, on Salt Spring Island!
