|Mother and child by Mary Cassatt.|
Do I have the right to photograph a non-public person and "publish" it on a public blog? I'm not sure, and on the outside chance I do not have the right, I truly do not want to end up in a courtroom. And, as I've said, the house is in my name so you can see why I hesitate.
My new cards will be finished late this afternoon. One set is medium gray with Bordeaux printing, the other light gray with navy blue. Who could refuse such elegance. . .?
I shall now try to redeem myself with useful information, as in actionable. You can run right out and buy this stuff and feel smug and smart (in the two senses of the word).
Produits Pour Maman et Bébé
As those of you who have been visiting this space for a while know, I am addicted to ABC Derm, a cleansing liquid for babies. I have been using it for three years as my principle facial cleanser. It's a miracle in a modest plastic bottle.
I also sometimes use Topicrem an "Ultra-Hydratant" body lotion, originally created for bébé. Supposedly Catherine Deneuve agrees with me. I read that. She didn't tell me herself.
I'm telling you this today because once again I've discovered I'm waaaaay ahead of the curve in my product preferences. It's frightening really.
|Less glamorous, ever and always for bébé, but now maman likes the cleansing milk as well.|
Above, several products purpose-made for mother and child. It's a new marketing approach apparently. Why didn't I think of this? It's the story of my life.
Yes, I believe in them and have some great herbal "sleeping pills" which work when I'm exhausted and have no problems trotting through my head. But that's another story.
What I'm talking about at the moment is a remedy for one's herbs or a herb preserver. The system is from La Carpe and promises fresh herbs stay fresh for up to three weeks inside the thingie pictured above.
The bottom is filled with water, the premise being that the stems drink in the water like cut flowers, and the snap-on top creates a sort of greenhouse effect, except cold, because you keep the whole thing in the refrigerator.
No, I do not plan to buy one because as you may recall I have my very own potager. When I need fresh herbs I walk out the back door with my scissors and snip, snip, snip. I might even grab a tomato or a cucumber.
