It's 2009 and I've nothing to say about it

It's been a while since I've posted an entry. After seven months of blogging at least once a day, I seem to be devoid of any thoughts. I expect that will end in due time. Meanwhile, I'll leave you with three simple things; 16th century music and art, and the fact that Hanae Mori Pink Butterfly has been making me feel happy. I've been teasing myself for falling in love with this fragrance. It's sweet and if it weren't so good, I'd say this type of scent could be purchased at Bath and Body Works. But no, it's sweet without being cloying. It smells of vanilla, though it hasn't a bit of vanilla in it.

Addendum: I do wish all of you a Happy New Year!

Beautiful music, beautiful painting--Thanks!

HM Pink Butterfly must have something going for it, if it's making you happy. I'll have to check it out.

Happy New Year to you, Julie.

I'm glad you enjoyed it (as I enjoy the same on your blog, of course).

As for the HM, I think I'm enjoying it because it is an innocent, sweet and soothing scent. There's nothing sophisticated about it, yet it's not oversweet. It's like a good piece of apple pie.
