So earlier than we leap in, Emma has had her home sprayed by a skunk 3 times within the final. What number of months? 

Emma: Yeah. We’ve lived in our home for six months and 3 times 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 a complete bunch and he’s simply clearly attempting to guard our home. However I’m additionally like, Steve, no want, that skunk is just not gonna get in the home, simply go away it alone. However yeah, after which he smells horrible after which he runs everywhere in the home. So then our complete home smells like skunk. And one night time 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 telephone 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 stay in a forest. I stay like on a nook lot with an everyday little fence in an everyday neighborhood. I don’t see why we’re having this skunk drawback, however we actually are and in the mean time our visitor bed room, which is the place Steve’s mattress is, smells so unhealthy and it has for like a complete week straight. And I’ve tried all the pieces the web has mentioned to attempt to it’s not getting higher, and I don’t know. I feel it’s higher, nevertheless it’s simply intense. 

Elsie: So ship Emma any options you will 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 may’t come over it stinks.

Elsie: I’ve by no means had a skunk expertise. So I imply in addition to 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 isn’t good. It’s unhealthy. It’s sort of humorous too as a result of I really assume 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 approach, 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 are feeling. I really feel sorry for myself. 

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

Emma: I’m cursed. 

Elsie: Nicely, I hope that that’s the final time. 3 times appears like sufficient. You can provide us an replace in a few months. 

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

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

Emma: Nicely, that was a useless animal. 

Elsie: A snake out of your own home. 

Emma: We used to stay by a forest and we had some main snake issues then, however now we’ve a skunk drawback.

Elsie: I sort of assume it’s a curse that’s following you from home to deal with. 

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

Elsie: Nicely, 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 a complete episode about that, a few episodes again. So we’ll hyperlink that within the present notes. After which immediately 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 assume it’s fascinating. It was enjoyable, and it was positively each very enjoyable and sort of plenty of stress to do it like so speedy, however I might 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 feel that speaking brazenly about shopping for furnishings in your total home was just a little goal on my again and I settle for that, I get it, however it’s like sort of what occurred virtually and like no matter. And yeah, I assumed I might begin with the judgemental story, only for the enjoyable of it to type of like affect everybody to not be this fashion. Okay. So you understand how in your DMS generally, I don’t know if this has ever occurred to you however each occasionally, it doesn’t occur to me a lot, however somebody will ship a message that’s like clearly meant for his or her good friend, that’s shit speaking you, nevertheless it involves you. 

Emma: Sure. That’s wonderful. 

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

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

Elsie: And I feel they perhaps, I don’t know in the event that they understand it or not, however yeah, so I obtained one. I haven’t gotten one in a very long time, and I obtained one the opposite day that simply mentioned she offered all her youngsters’ books and it like bugged me so freaking unhealthy as a result of, nicely, I’ll inform the entire thing. It bugged me so unhealthy as a result of initially, I purchased all our books not too long ago, like final yr. So we made the hidden Library solely like a yr in the past, a yr 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 suppose what I wanna say in protection of myself and in protection of, I suppose it’s a life lesson I realized all through this expertise. One in all my buddies on Instagram additionally, had her home burned down and we had been type of commiserating about it, it is a little bit of comparable issues, having your own home burned down versus promoting your complete home furnished is the belief that 99% of the issues in your own home are replaceable, and it’s one thing that I feel we simply don’t notice that, nevertheless it’s true for in all probability all of us. And sure, I’ve household images 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 had been totally different. And I feel that that’s good. I feel 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 gorgeous 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 might change in sooner or later with a listing and a bank card. You already know what I imply? Yeah. So, anyway, from my perspective, I wasn’t actually upset in regards to the individual, I assumed it was imply, what they mentioned. However the extra I thought of it, the extra I used to be like, initially, I’m grateful that I do know now that all the pieces’s replaceable and it’s not a giant deal to me. I’m not crying over the books, and we are going to purchase our children simply as many books, in all probability far more in our new house, 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 realized from this expertise is that I used to be extraordinarily honored to depart a completely styled, totally good youngsters’ library for one more household to take pleasure in. And that was really a extremely cool expertise. I felt like I used to be compensated for making this stunning factor and I’ll have the ability to make one other one for my youngsters sooner or later. And I don’t know, I assumed that was sort of cool too. So anyway, now we’re within the judgment-free bubble. 

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

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

Emma: Yeah. So the place did you begin? I suppose 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, optimistic factor, now that I’ve wrapped my head round it, so it’s like, what do you begin amassing 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 funds or no matter and similar to go away 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 sort of factor? 

Elsie: Sure. I positively have some purchasing tricks to share. So the very first thing is, I feel it’s essential to have a listing of belongings you wanna purchase instantly, like a quick checklist, and belongings you wanna accumulate over time, a sluggish checklist. So some examples of issues that I feel can be good to placed on the quick checklist are beds, mattress frames, mattresses, furnishings, rugs, and issues which are foundational to your room which are annoying to maneuver out and in. Simply the bottom layer of getting all the essential issues, curtains, like that. And issues that I personally assume are higher to do slowly are decor, wallpaper, particulars, collections, antiques, artwork, and even framing and hanging footage. That’s one thing that I’ll wait a number of months till I’ve lived there for a short while and thought of it just a little bit earlier than shopping for all of it and placing it up. So, yeah, I sort of simply give it some thought in two layers and the layer that I’ve been engaged on at first is sort of similar to the bottom layer, which I might additionally name the furnishings layer. And it does embody curtains and rugs, however just about the issues that make your room useful and cozy, like having the correct amount of tables and chairs. We talked earlier than about how one thing annoying that occurred was that through the pandemic we had simply moved into a house and I didn’t purchase all of the furnishings. Or perhaps, I don’t know if it didn’t come, perhaps it was again ordered or one thing occurred, however I didn’t have any tables or any chairs in our house, we solely had one on the porch. By way of just about probably the most intense a part of the pandemic when it was like staying house 24-7 instances, and that was like an enormous mistake. So this time, regardless that I might’ve reasonably in all probability spent extra time and gotten all vintage tables and issues like that, I simply purchased good tables from Wayfair and known as it a day and so they’re carried out, they’re already arrange, they’re already there. And I do know that we’ll have a spot to sit down in a mattress and the essential issues. 

Emma: Yeah, staple items, that is sensible. 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 previous 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 suppose can be my follow-up query?

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

Emma: And it rained quite a bit. I used to be like, uh oh.

Elsie: It rained a ton. I had a rain jacket that was good. After which, flew house 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 bins, and arrange all of the furnishings. So we did get a very good quantity of latest furnishings, particularly issues with very particular sizes. For instance, bedside tables, eating tables, sofas, and rugs had been principally new. Truly, I obtained a very good quantity of classic rugs too. I feel classic rugs are actually, very easy to seek out and particular.

Emma: You should purchase 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. But it surely’s true that they at all times do and truly the entry desk that I actually wished, I had seen it earlier than a few instances in the past, so it had been there for a short while. So I obtained a few units of chairs and I feel we obtained 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 notice 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 useful. However I cherished getting all these chairs with like character and persona and never having to pay delivery, not having to attend, that a part of it was so nice too. Yeah, I feel I’m gonna attempt to maintain going 50/50, I feel it’s a very good stability as a result of I don’t assume each single factor in the home will be vintage, however I sort of need it to look that approach. I don’t wanna have something you could inform is new or from Goal, or from Ikea or fashionable 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 really 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 wished to stay in, similar to utterly modified in a single day and I don’t know what, I can’t pinpoint, I might say Knives Out had one thing to do with it, but additionally it was like, do you keep in mind once we learn the e-book taking part in huge and I did the longer term self visualization. I noticed myself on this sure sort of previous home with type of like a Knives Out home, a darker, richer, antiquey vibe. And that’s beforehand not a mode that I might’ve gravitated towards in any approach. So I sort of love that I really feel like I’m like residing totally 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 suppose 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 just a little little bit of each, you’re proper although.

Emma: It had just a little each. Okay, nicely what about some purchasing suggestions? Did you get any vintage purchasing suggestions? Purchasing for new stuff suggestions. Let’s hear it since you’ve been purchasing quite a bit.

Elsie: Sure. I really feel like knowledgeable shopper. It has been fairly enjoyable. It was perhaps quite a bit 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 just a little bit like a mind-bending train. I feel I positively obtained purchasing fatigue. The place I’ve needed to type of like return and that’s the place I feel the layered method is useful as a result of it’s like, simply get the bottom, simply get the issues we want, after which there are specific issues the place I do know I can at all times add it later, however yeah my suggestions are, initially, I had a non-public pin board with all the pieces saved that I wished to purchase, and I did it for a number 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 are like costly the place you wanna get it, proper? And I spent a while overthinking these issues and I sort of simply don’t fear about overthinking small issues as a result of I simply assume you don’t must. However I feel it’s good to overthink before you purchase a 9×12 rug. After which one other tip, I feel I’ve mentioned this earlier than, however every time I’m shopping for massive purchases from huge 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 only get, {a magazine} or an advert within the mail and so they put it on eBay, the place you should buy it for, I don’t know, perhaps $10 or $20, and also you get like a 20% off coupon, which will be lots of of {dollars} whenever 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 essential to have coupons for issues like that. In order that’s a very good tip. I don’t assume it’s actually that huge of a deal in on a regular basis life whenever you’re shopping for one or two issues, however whenever you’re shopping for plenty of stuff it’s tremendous useful. It’s just about like a Black Friday sale or one thing 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 feel it’s actually, actually useful, particularly for bedrooms. You probably have a wallpaper sample, a sample in your rug, or a sample in your comforter or quilt that may change into too many patterns actually rapidly. So it’s actually good to simply put them multi functional place the place you’ll be able to see all of it. And just remember to get the best stability that you simply’re gonna be pleased with as a result of particular person objects are simply so totally different from how objects look collectively in a room. So yeah, these are my chopping suggestions. 

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

Elsie: Yeah, I might truthfully say the toughest I’ve ever labored in my life is sort of a three-day interval. It was so bodily exhausting. After the primary day I used to be like, I feel my again is tousled. On the second day, I used to be like, I feel my foot’s tousled. And on the third day, I had one thing improper with me, I don’t keep 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 just a little safer for like kids and stuff. And I’ll hyperlink it within the present notes as a result of it’s an important field cutter. It’s positively all I exploit it cuts by way of like tape and stuff actually simply, however I really 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 really 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 unintentionally go away it out with the youngsters. 

Emma: No, once I noticed it, I used to be like, oh, I should 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 appears to be like nice. 

Elsie: Sure. So yeah, it was very enjoyable. On the final night time, 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 simply add a number of cupboards from Amazon. And I obtained the hidden trash cupboard, in order that was cool. After which we simply had one in our pink home, so I assumed 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 night time on my own and it was enjoyable. So, yeah, it was extraordinarily fulfilling. It was the very best feeling ever to simply work so exhausting, so quick. After which once I left, all of the furnishings was unboxed, all of the bins had been off the porch. Thanks, Mother and Dad. The one factor that I didn’t get carried out was hanging curtains, so I’m nonetheless looking for a poor sole to assist me with that. However I imply, actually I obtained fairly far. So I used to be thrilled and I positively 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, people who I paid to assist me all day, day-after-day so we may get extra carried out. 

Emma: Yeah as a result of that stuff’s heavy. You want somebody that will help 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 shouldn’t have let me know that he has that trailer. Don’t you assume that’s a foul life alternative?

Emma: I used to be like, Ooh, I feel 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 very good Father’s Day reward. 

Elsie: Anyway, it was completely price 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 house. 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. Nicely, 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 will not be replaceable. I’m not saying to promote like your favourite vintage factor or a household heirloom or one thing. However no, I do assume it’s good to be taught the life lesson, that just about all the pieces is replaceable. And truthfully, you might purchase a complete new home of stuff in a weekend and it’s okay, it’s not that huge of a deal. So I don’t know, I really feel like that’s a very good reminder that an important issues in our house. It’s truthfully not, the books, books are wonderful, however actually it’s the recollections 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 may get extra and write new ones yearly, it’s magic.

Elsie: It’s magical and I wish to accumulate 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 generally I sort of forgot that I pre-ordered it after which it simply comes within the mail because the e-book comes out, and I’m like, sure, previous self has shocked future self and I’m so glad. You then like have the e-book proper because it comes out and it’s so cool. Okay, let’s do responsible pleasure, treasure. Do you will have a responsible pleasure for us? 

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

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

Elsie: So, initially, 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, stunning. If that’s your sort of factor like these movies on Instagram and TikTok are sort of like my total soul. And it simply brings me a lot pleasure. So it’s that type of factor and anyway, he made a cookbook. It appears to be like very stunning. It’s very rainbowy. However the different factor I wished 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 house, the stress, I feel lots of people at the moment had been like, we’re staying house. It is best 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 take 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 obtained me to rejoin and I really do take pleasure in TikTok once more now. So I really feel like I’ve to offer him credit score for that, that he did one thing so particular and joyful that he made a complete 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 wonderful? 

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

Emma: And then you definately 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 exhibiting Elsie earlier than we began recording, however I discussed a number of episodes in the past about how I obtained 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 discuss 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 very good 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 just a little clicking sound as you push the oil by way of 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 by way of the comb and then you definately simply brush it in your cuticles and I like it. I feel it’s one thing to do. I imply, I like the cuticle oil, however I feel it’s like the press sound.

Elsie: My cuticles are I feel that they’re naturally just a little bit above common, however they’re, so far as caring for them, I might say it’s beneath common. So I can do higher, I may strive. Okay, so I suppose let’s go to a joke or a truth with Nova. Hey, Nova, this week, do you will have a joke for us or a truth?

Nova: Joke. 

Elsie: Okay.
