Plus, we’re going to inform you our responsible pleasure treasures. All proper. So yeah, I believe that that is going to be a enjoyable episode. So earlier than we bounce in, Emma has had her home sprayed by a skunk thrice within the final. What number of months? 

Emma: Yeah. We’ve lived in our home for six months and thrice our canine has gotten sprayed by a skunk and a few weeks in the past, it was twice in a single week. And it’s so unhappy for our canine as a result of skunk spray should you don’t know clearly it smells horrible, nevertheless it’s additionally like itchy and it makes him sneeze an entire bunch and he’s simply clearly making an attempt to guard our home. However I’m additionally like, Steve, no want, that skunk is just not gonna get in the home, simply depart it alone. However yeah, after which he smells horrible after which he runs all around the home. So then our complete home smells like skunk. And one evening it occurred, it was like midnight as a result of skunks are nocturnal. So this week, actually earlier than we began recording, I used to be like, maintain on, I want a couple of minutes. I’m on the cellphone with the skunk trapper as a result of we’re paying somebody to come back and lure them and take them away as a result of we don’t actually know what else to do at this level as a result of clearly they maintain getting in and it’s like we don’t reside in a forest. I reside like on a nook lot with a daily little fence in a daily neighborhood. I don’t see why we’re having this skunk downside, however we actually are and in the meanwhile our visitor bed room, which is the place Steve’s mattress is, smells so dangerous and it has for like an entire week straight. And I’ve tried every thing the web has stated to attempt to it’s not getting higher, and I don’t know. I believe it’s higher, nevertheless it’s simply intense. 

Elsie: So ship Emma any strategies you might have for breaking a skunk curse as a result of she clearly has a curse and it must be damaged. 

Emma: It’s not good. It’s not good over right here. You’ll be able to’t come over it stinks.

Elsie: I’ve by no means had a skunk expertise. So I imply moreover like driving, everybody’s had that. However yeah, I’ve by no means had a skunk expertise at my home and t it does sound actually scary. Oh my god. 

Emma: It’s not good. It’s dangerous. It’s type of humorous too as a result of I truly suppose skunks are actually cute. Just like the animals.

Elsie: Oh yeah, they’re cute. 

Emma: However man, should you see once I’m like, run the opposite manner, run as quick as you’ll be able to. Don’t scare it. Like, I don’t know, it lingers. Ah. In order that’s my private story. 

Elsie: Rattling you skunks. 

Emma: Really feel sorry for me or not nevertheless you’re feeling. I really feel sorry for myself. 

Elsie: I believe they do. I believe that everybody feels sorry for you since you’re cursed.

Emma: I’m cursed. 

Elsie: Properly, I hope that that’s the final time. 3 times seems like sufficient. You may give us an replace in a few months. 

Emma: I’ll let you realize if the trapping labored in the event that they bought ’em. I don’t know. I don’t know. I’ve by no means referred to as an animal trapper earlier than on this manner. 

Elsie: I’m like on this manner since you did. 

Emma: Properly, that was a lifeless animal. 

Elsie: A snake out of your own home. 

Emma: We used to reside by a forest and we had some main snake issues then, however now we have now a skunk downside.

Elsie: I type of suppose it’s a curse that’s following you from home to accommodate. 

Emma: It appears to be. Though nothing actually occurred to me at Weller and I lived there on my own for somewhat bit. So possibly it’s Trey’s curse. It’s possibly my husband’s curse. I don’t know, we’re all cursed on this home now trigger all of us odor somewhat bit. Oscar’s room is skunk free no less than. In order that’s good.

Elsie: Properly, I’m enthusiastic about this episode. So not too long ago we offered our home, furnished our home in Tennessee, and we needed to, and I did an entire episode about that, a few episodes again. So we’ll hyperlink that within the present notes. After which at present we thought we might spend an episode speaking about what it’s wish to furnish a home from scratch as a result of I’ve gotten plenty of questions on it and I do suppose it’s fascinating. It was enjoyable, and it was undoubtedly each very enjoyable and type of plenty of stress to do it like so speedy, however I’d say principally enjoyable. And I’ll say I’m contemplating this episode, I’m giving us a kind of little psychological bubbles, and I’m contemplating this episode a judgment-free zone as a result of I believe that speaking brazenly about shopping for furnishings in your complete home was somewhat goal on my again and I settle for that, I get it, however it’s like type of what occurred virtually and like no matter. And yeah, I believed I’d begin with the judgemental story, only for the enjoyable of it to type of like affect everybody to not be this manner. Okay. So you understand how in your DMS typically, I don’t know if this has ever occurred to you however each on occasion, it doesn’t occur to me a lot, however somebody will ship a message that’s like clearly meant for his or her pal, that’s shit speaking you, nevertheless it involves you. 

Emma: Sure. That’s superb. 

Elsie: Yeah. And I don’t know the way it occurs. 

Emma: It’s of their mind, they’re like speaking about you, and impulsively they by chance click on over to sending it to you, that’s so humorous. 

Elsie: And I believe they possibly, I don’t know in the event that they understand it or not, however yeah, so I bought one. I haven’t gotten one in a very long time, and I bought one the opposite day that simply stated she offered all her youngsters’ books and it like bugged me so freaking dangerous as a result of, nicely, I’ll inform the entire thing. It bugged me so dangerous as a result of to begin with, I purchased all our books not too long ago, like final 12 months. So we made the hidden Library solely like a 12 months in the past, a 12 months and a half in the past or two years in the past. It wasn’t even there. It was like, it wasn’t there, it didn’t exist. So, I assume what I wanna say in protection of myself and in protection of, I assume it’s a life lesson I discovered all through this expertise. One among my pals on Instagram additionally, had her home burned down and we have been type of commiserating about it, this can be a little bit of comparable issues, having your own home burned down versus promoting your complete home furnished is the conclusion that 99% of the issues in your own home are replaceable, and it’s one thing that I believe we simply don’t understand that, nevertheless it’s true for in all probability all of us. And sure, I’ve household photographs and I’ve this actually particular portray of my grandma and I’ve a few items of clothes and a few mementos, my youngsters’ portray, and issues like that. However general, 99% of the issues in our home are issues I may simply purchase once more tomorrow from common shops and we wouldn’t even discover that they have been completely different. And I believe that that’s good. I believe that it must be encouraging and it must be a wholesome reminder that that is all simply stuff. And even when it’s a curated assortment of lovely books the place you picked out each single one and also you’ve both learn them otherwise you intend to learn them, it’s nonetheless stuff that you may substitute in someday with an inventory and a bank card. You understand what I imply? Yeah. So, anyway, from my perspective, I wasn’t actually upset concerning the particular person, I believed it was imply, what they stated. However the extra I thought of it, the extra I used to be like, to begin with, I’m grateful that I do know now that every thing’s replaceable and it’s not an enormous deal to me. I’m not crying over the books, and we’ll purchase our children simply as many books, in all probability far more in our new dwelling, and so they’re not gonna be like missing for books. I promise you for one single day of their lives they’re simply not. And the opposite factor that I discovered from this expertise is that I used to be extraordinarily honored to depart a totally styled, totally excellent youngsters’ library for one more household to get pleasure from. And that was truly a extremely cool expertise. I felt like I used to be compensated for making this lovely factor and I’ll be capable to make one other one for my youngsters sooner or later. And I don’t know, I believed that was type of cool too. So anyway, now we’re within the judgment-free bubble. 

Emma: Aside from me, I’m gonna choose you as a lot as I would like, as traditional. 

Elsie: I do know. I truly, love your judgements although. That’s superb. I can take it for positive. Okay, let’s chat about it. 

Emma: Yeah. So the place did you begin? I assume as a result of I really feel wish to me it sounds so overwhelming to be like, oh, okay so that they bottle the furnishings. How thrilling, constructive factor, now that I’ve wrapped my head round it, so it’s like, what do you begin gathering first? Did you make a hierarchy of wants or how did you even prioritize? As a result of clearly sooner or later you’ll run out of finances or no matter and similar to depart some issues off similar to a renovations, nevertheless it’s like how do you know the place to begin and what was the method of that type of factor? 

Elsie: Sure. I undoubtedly have some buying tricks to share. So the very first thing is, I believe it’s necessary to have an inventory of stuff you wanna purchase instantly, like a quick listing, and stuff you wanna acquire over time, a sluggish listing. So some examples of issues that I believe can be good to placed on the quick listing are beds, mattress frames, mattresses, furnishings, rugs, and issues which can be foundational to your room which can be annoying to maneuver out and in. Simply the bottom layer of getting all the essential issues, curtains, like that. And issues that I personally suppose are higher to do slowly are decor, wallpaper, particulars, collections, antiques, artwork, and even framing and hanging photos. That’s one thing that I’ll wait a couple of months till I’ve lived there for a short time and thought of it somewhat bit earlier than shopping for all of it and placing it up. So, yeah, I type of simply give it some thought in two layers and the layer that I’ve been engaged on at first is type of similar to the bottom layer, which I’d additionally name the furnishings layer. And it does embody curtains and rugs, however just about the issues that make your room purposeful and comfy, like having the correct amount of tables and chairs. We talked earlier than about how one thing annoying that occurred was that in the course of the pandemic we had simply moved into a house and I didn’t purchase all of the furnishings. Or possibly, I don’t know if it didn’t come, possibly it was again ordered or one thing occurred, however I didn’t have any tables or any chairs in our dwelling, we solely had one on the porch. By means of just about essentially the most intense a part of the pandemic when it was like staying dwelling 24-7 occasions, and that was like an enormous mistake. So this time, although I’d’ve somewhat in all probability spent extra time and gotten all vintage tables and issues like that, I simply purchased good tables from Wayfair and referred to as it a day and so they’re accomplished, they’re already arrange, they’re already there. And I do know that we’ll have a spot to take a seat in a mattress and the essential issues. 

Emma: Yeah, staple items, that is smart. Okay, you simply talked about Wayfair, however you’ve additionally talked about that you simply actually like altering your fashion. It’s gonna be very Knives Out one, Knives Out, initially impressed. So how a lot of the home thus far no less than, would you say is outdated issues like antiques or one-of-a-kind versus, newer issues such as you talked about shopping for a desk on Wayfair, and the way do you combine the 2, I assume can be my follow-up query?

Elsie: So I’d say it’s been 50/50 thus far, with furnishings and rug. So my fantastic, superb father-in-law went with me to the flea market the opposite day. I had three days in Springfield, Emma, truly, we met our dad and mom in St. Louis for a Mom’s Day weekend, after which I drove dwelling along with her, after which I had three days to spend. I didn’t actually have a automobile, I simply stayed on the pink home and walked forwards and backwards from the pink home to our new home the whole time. 

Emma: And it rained lots. I used to be like, uh oh.

Elsie: It rained a ton. I had a rain jacket that was good. After which, flew dwelling after three days. So anyway, throughout that point what we did was we undid each single field, which was nice, and removed all of the containers, and arrange all of the furnishings. So we did get a great quantity of latest furnishings, particularly issues with very particular sizes. For instance, bedside tables, eating tables, sofas, and rugs have been principally new. Truly, I bought a great quantity of classic rugs too. I believe classic rugs are actually, very easy to search out and particular.

Emma: You should buy these on-line. 

Elsie: Yeah, after which my father-in-law went with me to the flea market and I used to be telling Jeremy all of the stuff I used to be gonna get, however I hadn’t been there in like a month. And he was like, how are you aware they’re gonna have that stuff? And I used to be like, they at all times do and I simply believed it might be there. 

Emma: She manifested the furnishings.

Elsie: Yeah. Nevertheless it’s true that they at all times do and truly the entry desk that I actually needed, I had seen it earlier than a few occasions in the past, so it had been there for a short time. So I bought a few units of chairs and I believe we bought like 14 chairs and an entry desk and he needed to go to depart and go get his trailer as a result of he didn’t understand how a lot stuff I used to be gonna get, after which we tied all of it down and drove it again and it was similar to such an thrilling, good feeling. And I don’t thoughts in any respect shopping for stuff from Wayfair and Amazon and locations like that 100%, it’s simply sensible and purposeful. However I liked getting all these chairs with like character and character and never having to pay delivery, not having to attend, that a part of it was so nice too. Yeah, I believe I’m gonna attempt to maintain going 50/50, I believe it’s a great stability as a result of I don’t suppose each single factor in the home might be vintage, however I type of need it to look that manner. I don’t wanna have something which you could inform is new or from Goal, or from Ikea or trendy or no matter. I don’t wanna have something that’s like a brand new pattern. So yeah, you’ll have to inform me if I truly can obtain that, however that’s my intention. 

Emma: Nice. That’ll be my position. I’ll come over and be like, that’s new. And also you’ll be like, no, it’s an vintage. And I’ll be like, okay, that’s new, and also you’ll be like, okay. Yeah, that’s new. That’ll be my guessing sport. 

Elsie: Yeah, completely. It’s been a lot enjoyable. I had this second a few years in the past the place, I don’t know my fashion simply modified in a single day. The home I needed to reside in, similar to utterly modified in a single day and I don’t know what, I can’t pinpoint, I’d say Knives Out had one thing to do with it, but in addition it was like, do you bear in mind after we learn the ebook taking part in massive and I did the longer term self visualization. I noticed myself on this sure type of outdated home with type of like a Knives Out home, a darker, richer, antiquey vibe. And that’s beforehand not a mode that I’d’ve gravitated towards in any manner. So I type of love that I really feel like I’m like residing completely different lives in my design aesthetic. And we simply converted utterly from like Palm Springs, Elsie, to love Knives Out Elsie and there was no in-between. 

Emma: I assume your Nashville home was the in-between, nevertheless it was like turning a nineties home into extra of a Knives Outhouse. However, there are limitations.

Elsie: It had somewhat little bit of each, you’re proper although.

Emma: It had somewhat each. Okay, nicely what about some buying ideas? Did you get any vintage buying ideas? Searching for new stuff ideas. Let’s hear it since you’ve been buying lots.

Elsie: Sure. I really feel like an expert shopper. It has been fairly enjoyable. It was possibly lots to do the entire home as a result of I ordered nearly all of the furnishings for the home in a single weekend and it was somewhat bit like a mind-bending train. I believe I undoubtedly bought buying fatigue. The place I’ve needed to type of like return and that’s the place I believe the layered strategy is useful as a result of it’s like, simply get the bottom, simply get the issues we’d like, after which there are specific issues the place I do know I can at all times add it later, however yeah my ideas are, to begin with, I had a non-public pin board with every thing saved that I needed to purchase, and I did it for a couple of months earlier than. Just about as quickly as I knew that the furnished home sale factor was occurring, I began this pin board of beds, dressers, rugs, all the principle stuff, the issues which can be like costly the place you wanna get it, proper? And I spent a while overthinking these issues and I type of simply don’t fear about overthinking small issues as a result of I simply suppose you don’t have to. However I believe it’s good to overthink before you purchase a 9×12 rug. After which one other tip, I believe I’ve stated this earlier than, however every time I’m shopping for massive purchases from massive field shops, I do that factor the place I purchase coupons from eBay, locations like Anthropology, Creighton barrels, Serena and Lilly, locations like that, there are simply individuals who, they simply get, {a magazine} or an advert within the mail and so they put it on eBay, the place you should purchase it for, I don’t know, possibly $10 or $20, and also you get like a 20% off coupon, which might be tons of of {dollars} if you’re shopping for main purchases. Like once I purchased my youngsters’ bed room furnishings, it was all from one retailer. So it’s like necessary to have coupons for issues like that. In order that’s a great tip. I don’t suppose it’s actually that massive of a deal in on a regular basis life if you’re shopping for one or two issues, however if you’re shopping for plenty of stuff it’s tremendous useful. It’s just about like a Black Friday sale or one thing which you could like, make for your self. After which my different recommendation is to make a temper board for each room, which I do know is annoying and I do know is plenty of work. I truthfully don’t do it for each room, however I do it for the rooms the place I’m having hassle deciding. I believe it’s actually, actually useful, particularly for bedrooms. When you have a wallpaper sample, a sample in your rug, or a sample in your comforter or quilt that may develop into too many patterns actually shortly. So it’s actually good to only put them multi functional place the place you’ll be able to see all of it. And just be sure you get the correct stability that you simply’re gonna be pleased with as a result of particular person gadgets are simply so completely different from how gadgets look collectively in a room. So yeah, these are my chopping ideas. 

Emma: Properly, you talked about you have been on the town for 3 days, and also you’re setting issues up, inform us about establishing the home earlier than your loved ones actually will get to see it since you have been right here by your self. 

Elsie: Yeah, I’d truthfully say the toughest I’ve ever labored in my life is sort of a three-day interval. It was so bodily laborious. After the primary day I used to be like, I believe my again is tousled. On the second day, I used to be like, I believe my foot’s tousled. And on the third day, I had one thing mistaken with me, I don’t bear in mind.

Emma: And on the third day you rose once more. 

Elsie: I had bruises, it was only a mess. And okay, right here’s the humorous factor, I’ve these security knives, it’s a field cutter that’s somewhat safer for like youngsters and stuff. And I’ll hyperlink it within the present notes as a result of it’s an important field cutter. It’s undoubtedly all I exploit it cuts via like tape and stuff actually simply, however I truly stabbed myself within the hand with it. And what’s humorous is I had already stabbed myself within the finger with a knife in my kitchen the week earlier than. I truly stabbed myself within the hand with this field knife and it didn’t minimize me in any respect. So I’ve to say it’s an important buy. Everybody wants it. It’s not only for youngsters as a result of I simply considered it as safer for teenagers. In case you by chance depart it out with the youngsters. 

Emma: No, once I noticed it, I used to be like, oh, I can purchase a kind of as a result of I at all times get an Amazon field, I simply open it with like our kitchen scissors as a result of they’re similar to proper there within the drawer and I at all times really feel like I’m gonna slice myself. So I used to be like, oh, that field opener seems to be nice. 

Elsie: Sure. So yeah, it was very enjoyable. On the final evening, I painted a gap. There was this Classic cupboard, it had been in Emma’s vacation home and it had been in my pink home storage for like six months, and we introduced it over and I painted it to match the opposite. I’ve made a type of like a brief kitchen state of affairs with cupboards, as a result of our kitchen had nearly no cupboards in any respect, and we took out the island so as to add a brand new island, however then there was like a ton of wall area throughout. So we determined to only add a couple of cupboards from Amazon. And I bought the hidden trash cupboard, in order that was cool. After which we simply had one in our pink home, so I believed I may simply use that and never waste it. So, I simply painted it actual fast and it was so enjoyable. I used to be listening to a teenage romance novel and simply portray actually late at evening on my own and it was enjoyable. So, yeah, it was extraordinarily fulfilling. It was the perfect feeling ever to only work so laborious, so quick. After which once I left, all of the furnishings was unboxed, all of the containers have been off the porch. Thanks, Mother and Dad. The one factor that I didn’t get accomplished was hanging curtains, so I’m nonetheless looking for a poor sole to assist me with that. However I imply, actually I bought fairly far. So I used to be thrilled and I undoubtedly advocate it should you’re shifting right into a home should you can simply give your self a few days. And I did have, I’ll say a few paid helpers, those who I paid to assist me all day, on daily basis so we may get extra accomplished. 

Emma: Yeah as a result of that stuff’s heavy. You want somebody that can assist you transfer one thing like you’ll be able to’t do it by yourself. 

Elsie: And my father-in-law was the most important badass of all time. Yeah, he mustn’t have let me know that he has that trailer. Don’t you suppose that’s a foul life selection?

Emma: I used to be like, Ooh, I believe that is now his job, he’ll see along with her flea market fines and I’m similar to, nicely, good luck Gary. Hit him a great Father’s Day present. 

Elsie: Anyway, it was completely value it, it was so enjoyable and I can’t wait to maneuver in and present the youngsters, we left cute issues of their rooms to make them really feel at dwelling. And we booked a cleansing two days earlier than we transfer in. So, that was fairly good. 

Emma: Yeah. It’s gonna be nice. 

Elsie: I’m so nervous. 

Emma: Nah. It’s gonna be nice. It’s already arrange. It’s gonna be clear. It’s gonna be nice. 

Elsie: Aw. Properly, I’m excited, and yeah, for anybody who has an opportunity to promote a house furnished, my recommendation is to go for it and do it. Undoubtedly communicate up if there are one or two issues that you simply similar to love a lot that you realize should not replaceable. I’m not saying to promote like your favourite vintage factor or a household heirloom or one thing. However no, I do suppose it’s good to study the life lesson, that nearly every thing is replaceable. And truthfully, you may purchase an entire new home of stuff in a weekend and it’s okay, it’s not that massive of a deal. So I don’t know, I really feel like that’s a great reminder that an important issues in our dwelling. It’s truthfully not, the books, books are superb, however actually it’s the reminiscences of studying them and making stuff, it doesn’t actually matter. If all of your books are gone, you’ll be able to simply get extra.

Emma: Yeah. You will get extra and write new ones yearly, it’s magic.

Elsie: It’s magical and I wish to acquire books until I die.

Emma: Yeah, identical new ones too. I like shopping for new books as they arrive out. It’s a lot enjoyable.

Elsie: Sure. My pre-ordering is fairly aggressive proper now.

Emma: I like pre-ordering as a result of then it’s like typically I type of forgot that I pre-ordered it after which it simply comes within the mail because the ebook comes out, and I’m like, sure, previous self has stunned future self and I’m so glad. Then you definately like have the ebook proper because it comes out and it’s so cool. Okay, let’s do responsible pleasure, treasure. Do you might have a responsible pleasure for us? 

Elsie: So my responsible pleasure treasure this time is Danny Loves Pasta and I don’t suppose I’ve talked about him on the podcast earlier than, have I? I don’t suppose so. 

Emma: I don’t suppose so. I’m not on the podcast. 

Elsie: So, to begin with, I simply wanna plug, Danny Loves Pasta’s cookbook, which releases on June twenty seventh. It’s a pasta cookbook. It’s a novelty, should you like, Rainbow Pasta, issues like that, cute, lovely. If that’s your type of factor like these movies on Instagram and TikTok are type of like my complete soul. And it simply brings me a lot pleasure. So it’s that type of factor and anyway, he made a cookbook. It seems to be very lovely. It’s very rainbowy. However the different factor I needed to say about him is that he’s the explanation I rejoined TikTok. So I deleted my TikTok in precisely March of 2020 when the pandemic started, and I felt like as a mother, however working mother with two youngsters at dwelling, the stress, I believe lots of people at the moment have been like, we’re staying dwelling. You need to blow up your TikTok and I used to be similar to, oh my God I can barely survive proper now. So I deleted my TikTok for 2 years and didn’t have a look at it in any respect or log in for 2 years. However then Keeley despatched me these, Danny Loves Pasta movies the place he was making Harry Potter home scarves pasta, and he bought me to rejoin and I truly do get pleasure from TikTok once more now. So I really feel like I’ve to present him credit score for that, that he did one thing so particular and joyful that he made an entire app that may be oftentimes poisonous and annoying. He made it joyful and a contented, fantastic place.

Emma: They need to make it like a button in TikTok and Instagram the place like should you rejoin, you’ll be able to put within the identify of the one that impressed you to rejoin, after which they ship them 20 bucks or one thing, or 50 bucks. Wouldn’t that be superb? 

Elsie: Truthfully, yeah. I really feel prefer it was particular as a result of I didn’t suppose I used to be ever gonna rejoin. 

Emma: And then you definitely noticed that Harry Potter pasta and also you’re like, nicely, okay.

Elsie: I knew that there was a contented world on the market. Okay, what’s again yours? 

Emma: My responsible pleasure treasure is so random. I used to be displaying Elsie earlier than we began recording, however I discussed a couple of episodes in the past about how I bought hypnotized for not biting my nails and I’ve been doing nice with that, which is superior. And anyway, I not too long ago purchased myself this cuticle oil and that’s my responsible pleasure treasure that I wanna speak to you about. So, this one is like $4 on Amazon. I can hyperlink it within the present notes, however principally what I like about it’s it’s a great cuticle oil, I like that, nevertheless it’s actually small. It’s the scale of a pen so you’ll be able to maintain it in your purse. I maintain mine on my desk so it’s formed like a pen, after which on one finish, it has a brush. It’s similar to should you ever noticed the dazzle stick that we talked about, how we clear our jewellery. It has a brush on one finish, so that you simply take the cap off after which it makes somewhat clicking sound as you push the oil via the comb. I’m gonna do it for you. I don’t know should you can hear that, however, so it makes this little clicking sound after which the oil comes up via the comb and then you definitely simply brush it in your cuticles and I adore it. I believe it’s one thing to do. I imply, I like the cuticle oil, however I believe it’s like the press sound.

Elsie: My cuticles are I believe that they’re naturally somewhat bit above common, however they’re, so far as taking good care of them, I’d say it’s beneath common. So I can do higher, I may strive. Okay, so I assume let’s go to a joke or a reality with Nova. Hey, Nova, this week, do you might have a joke for us or a reality?

Nova: Joke.
