Ramble, scentful and funky space

- A river runs through it. View from the Cliff House on the Hiawassee River, July 2009. We took a ramble through the grounds and porches around this house for sale when we were there last.

- The savory smell of the rosemary flecked soap sitting on a shelf in my kitchen. I get a whiff of rosemary every time I lean over to pick up Sophie's water dish for refill. (Not wanting to use it for washing up just yet since it is so delightfully scentful.)

- Visiting a potential client who sells fine art out of a building that was once used to manufacture Arby's sauces. A huge vat in the center of the space has now been made into a conference room with a door cut-out and funky furniture and sculpture inside.

I want that soap! Sounds divine.

Every time I pass a rosemary bush I rub my hands on it and the smell lasts and lasts.

And that must be one big-a$$ vat to be made into a conference room.

Lynn, you are your blog are great! Did I ever tell you that? :)

Mama Zen -

I got that soap at one of those mountain craft fairs in NC in July. It is divine smelling!

Jannie -

I love rosemary - it's fun to skewer meat and veggies on it for the grill, too.

It was one big-aSS vat - I wanted to take a picture, but my boss was with me. :)

You did tell me, but thank you for saying it again. The feeling is quite mutual, my friend.

Galen -

Thank YOU for visiting MY humble blog. And thanks for the compliment. I will work on a Flash 55 - it does sound fun. I always look forward to Mama Zen's. You have a great weekend, too!

That conference room takes recycling to a whole new level!

Love the photo - I can feel the energy of the river.

Rosemary is a super scent. I love great smelling soaps though, like you, I don't like to use it right away - lol!~

Talon -

That is the coolest building I've been to in a long time - all that original artwork for sale.

Love a savory smelling soap. I kind of felt sorry for the woman - she had one visiting her booth, so I studied all of them before selecting rosemary.

That river is calling me name - I have no idea when I'll get back there. Just couldn't resist posting a picture of it today.

Talon said...

Lynn, I'm glad you couldn't resist. And you should do a Flash 55 - I think you'd do great!

I agree - Mama Zen's are remarkable.

Lynn said...

Good morning Talon -

That would be a great creative outlet - I'll think about that this week.

I hope you have a good weekend!

Beautiful pic of the river. Reminds me of the Farmington River out my way.

G -

We have learned that someone owns that property across the way and doesn't intend to develop it. Good news. Even though my sister's house is just a short walk away from this one, we hate to see more development. Her house was already there - we keep telling ourselves. :)
