Shadows and Five Senses Friday

Essential Oil Perfume
Patchouli Essential Oil Perfume
A bit of colorful and dark shadows today.

I recently bought a dark patchouli essential oil perfume which has a rich, spicy and earthy scent. Patchouli is supposed to lift the mood and reduce mental fatigue. That's why I originally got interested in this scent, but now I'm just addicted to how it smells.

Taking a nap today with my window open, I was lulled to sleep by the birds singing.

Out in my husband's garden picking lettuce, arugula and spinach. Some volunteer plants have sprouted as well: a tomato plant and some kind of melon plant.

I found a shop that imports fabrics from India and bought 3 different fabrics to sew some clothes. Being a complete beginner, I found some simple, no pattern tutorials online for a dress and skirt. Can't wait to try them out.

Next to the fabric shop was an Indian Food Market. I bought some Paneer cheese for tonight's curry dinner.

Wishing everyone a feast for their senses. Abbytryagain started the Five Senses Friday on her blog.

ah patchouli! takes me back to the 60's! I love that scent.

And thanks for the lovely tour through the senses. A nice reminder to wake up and savour them all!

What a tasty post, Juana! Patchouli is one of fave scents--be it in perfume form, incense, anything. Your fabric selections are lovely--love all the blues. Hope you might show your finished sewing projects here--I would love to see! I'm attempting to sew my own t-shirt, making up pattern and all as I go along...we'll see how it goes...LOL! Paneer cheese--YUM! It's hard to come by here, but it's wonderful to do with a curry-spinach sauce. Thanks so much for you kind thoughts on my painting/feature--means a lot from a very pro artist such as yourself. :o) Happy Weekend ((HUGS))

oooh I love that opening glass shadow - reminds me of my shots from last week - yours is quite stunning!

The shadow is wonderful, all the things about it: the beautiful shape of the bottle, the dark copper shadow, and the aroma. Well, I am not familiar with that - however with all the visceral sights here, I'll take your word for it!
