In 2012 we headed off on one particular path, and it smelled good. Sarah had been writing about perfume for 15 years, and experimenting with making the scents she'd described in her novel, scents that reminded the characters of a happy time. Then people started asking her to make perfumes that smelled like their own happy times. She showed them to Odette Toilette who included them at a Scratch + Sniff event. The great Josephine Fairley wrote a lovely review and - ta dah! - we're in the perfumery business. If you're on a quest for for your own bespoke perfume, something unusual and original, or a long lost classic, have a good look around.

Our blog is right here.
The name: if we live until we're 80, we have 4160 Tuesdays.
That's all. Let's not waste them.
Let's use them to write, think, make and do lovely things. Or, if that sounds great but you don't have time, to buy lovely things that other makers have put together.
On a Tuesday, do something different.
The 4160Tuesdays project is about being creative: mindful observation, nerd-like fascination, endless exploration and - fingers crossed - mixing it all up and having good ideas. At least once a week. If we can't be bright and brilliant every day, at least let's have a crack at making Tuesdays interesting.
A Recycling Centre for Ideas
Come here to share good ideas. If you've thought of something let us know. We'd like you to come here to find ideas too. Help yourself to whatever's available. Then go and do something different. It's good to give as well as receive, so feel free to add to the blog, or email us with your spares or links and we'll post them up.
The Big Print
There's just the one guideline: be kind and be generous.
