Yeah! Happy Anniversary!! 9 years is something to talk about! We had our 10th this past summer and what a nice feeling that was, for us, it went by in a blink of an eye!
My favourite smell? Well I am very sensitive to smells and I actually have a few that I just inhale deeply when their scent is near, but I would have to say my favourite is the smell of paper! Yes, paper. When I open a book, new or old and that smell rises in the air, ahh!! Love it!


Congrats on your milestone this week! My favorite scents are tangerine, lemon and orange for our house. Those scents always make our home smell like I just cleaned it--even when I haven't. Gotta love that!


Hi Angel! Happy Anniversary to you. I just had to respond to this because March 29 happens to be my birthday... fabulous day huh! So my current favorite scent (which will probably remain one of my favorite scents) is the smell of Samantha when I'm getting her dressed after she has just had a bath. That wonderful clean baby smell... gotta love it! Have a wonderful day, hopefully Rod has the day off and the two of you can do something fun. Love ya!


Love your blog... I ran across it as a link to one of your cards... thanks for sharing your beautiful work! My favorite smell is a wonderful shower gel from Canada, called McBloom's. I found it on my first trip with my hubby, 9 years ago, and I order it twice a year when it's on sale. It smells like a fresh spring garden. Not too flower, not to green, just right!! Totally lifts my spirits... I am down to one bottle til May...YIKES!
Happy Anniversary!

Congratulations on your milestone.
I love the aroma of lavender - I find it both relaxing and comforting.

I love aromas-but am pretty particular

Wow, Steph, 9 years, congrats!!! Hope your honey buys you something really special ... like some punches, or some stamps, or some new DP's, or a purty pink Crop-a-Dile, or some shiny EP, or some Copics, or ...

My all-time-most-favorite scent EVUH is Buttered Maple Syrup .. even sounds delicious, huh?!? I have a super-secret place where I buy all my candles in that yummy scent.

And holy pajama's, that's SOME kind of awesome blog candy. Pick ME, pick me .. I'll be your best friend!! And remember: best friends tell each other ALL their super-secret secrets, LOLOL!

Woohoo! Happy 9th Wedding Anniversary!!! Hope for many more joyous years to come :)
My fave scents would be strawberry and vanilla. Mmmm...


Congrats on the blog milestone and on the upcoming anniversary! I love scents - at the holidays I put a pot of water on the stove and add whole cloves and cinnamon sticks along with a cut up apple or orange - it makes the whole house smell festive - mmmm!
In general, I love pretty much any citrus scent, vanilla or a pretty flower such as lilac or rose.


Happy Anniversary!
I love Jasmine, the smell of fresh coffee and Lavendar which reminds me of my childhood.


Happy Anniversary! I hope it is a very special one :O)
There are so many scents I love; including vanilla, orange, and in plants: daphne and brown boronia

Thanks for sharing :)
