Hello, old friends! I’ve started a new blog, focusing on my fragrance-related thoughts and activities. It’s called Perfume Professor. Come visit!
This blog will remain open, although I won’t be posting here very often. Thank you for being loyal readers…I hope to see you soon on my new page.
There are many blogs about New York City’s history, but very few about the past of its next-door neighbor New Jersey. I’m happy to see a new blog, Another Town on the Hudson, which concentrates on Jersey City’s cultural history. The author (full disclosure: someone close to me!) is posting weekly meditations on Chilltown’s past, illustrated with fascinating archival images. I look forward to following it, and I just wanted to share it with anyone who might be a fellow history-lover or Jersey native.

According to WordPress, this is my 500th post on Tinsel Creation…. and I still can’t decide on just one topic for my blogging. I hope you’ve enjoyed all my thoughts on perfumes, lipsticks, art, books, and NYC oddities over the past two-and-a-half years. I’ll continue to wear several hats (ha!), and I hope that you’ll keep reading.
I’ve finally started using Instagram! I probably won’t be posting many “selfies,” but if you’d like to increase your daily intake of pictures of art, perfume bottles, jewelry, street scenes, and cats, feel free to follow along at tinselcreation.
Today is my birthday. I wish we could all get together “in real life” for cake and conversation!

I haven’t been keeping up with my usual blogging schedule! Last week I was getting ready for an out-of-town weekend (visiting friends in Detroit) and now I’m facing several short-term deadlines at work. I should be able to find more time for writing next week!
