fourth anniversary and bloody frida goes to bed

Today marks Bloody Frida's fourth anniversary, and I figure that this is the perfect time to 'archive' this blog.

Thank you to everyone who has followed, commented, gifted me and /or swapped perfume samples and bottles, educated me, kept in touch via phone, snail mail or email, and became my friend through this enlightening and fabulous four year experience!

I'm continuing to blog at the cow jumps over the moon where I natter on about all sorts of things that keep me busy in my little life - interests in art/craft, food preservation, pets, cooking, gardening, community matters, reading, etc. And of course, scent, too!

See you around the blog-o-sphere!

ooh! and dear lord

Ooh!   Farmacia Ss.Annunziata Vaniglia Del Madagascar.  Could this be my favorite vanilla? Yes, it is.  It is THE vanilla for me. Warm, rich, and gives me the vanilla extract scent I have been longing for, and it is ever-lasting on my skin! Lemon, floral and amber notes, and Madagascar vanilla. Check out this review from Smelly Thoughts and one from Nathan Branch.

Oh dear lord, what were they thinking with The Vagabond Prince Enchanted Forest?  It is my fault, though - I really do tend to judge a book by its cover and a perfume by its name. Ughhh - I don't even think my teenage nieces would like this one! A wonderful thing about this experience is that now I am really digging Cartier L'Heure Vertueuse! ;)

I'm not sure how much longer I'll be keeping this blog because I'm having a difficult time juggling two blogs (my other blog is the cow jumped over the moon , named after my favorite nursery rhyme).  I'm feeling too compartmentalized, or something.  Maybe I'll merge the two?  What do you all think?

Oh, and here's a picture for us dog lovers out there (Lady Jicky! and others) - here's our mutt, Sephora!

It's 20134!  How long will it be before I don't have to cross out a 3?!!  Hope everyone is having a terrific start to this new year.
