So earlier than we soar 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 when 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 shouldn’t be gonna get in the home, simply go away 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 entice 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 a daily little fence in a daily 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 dangerous and it has for like a complete week straight. And I’ve tried all the things 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 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 possibly can’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’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, when you see once I’m like, run the opposite means, run as quick as you may. 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: Effectively, I hope that that’s the final time. Thrice appears like sufficient. You can provide us an replace in a few months. 

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

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

Emma: Effectively, 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 have now a skunk drawback.

Elsie: I type of suppose 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 a bit 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 scent a bit bit. Oscar’s room is skunk free at the very least. In order that’s good.

Elsie: Effectively, I’m enthusiastic about this episode. So just lately we bought 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’d spend an episode speaking about what it’s wish to furnish a home from scratch as a result of I’ve gotten quite a lot of questions on it and I do suppose it’s fascinating. It was enjoyable, and it was undoubtedly each very enjoyable and type of quite a lot 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 on your complete home was a bit 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 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 know the way in your DMS generally, I don’t know if this has ever occurred to you however each now and again, 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 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 swiftly they by chance click on over to sending it to you, that’s so humorous. 

Elsie: And I feel they possibly, I don’t know in the event that they comprehend 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 mentioned she bought all her children’ 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 just lately, 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 suppose what I wanna say in protection of myself and in protection of, I suppose it’s a life lesson I discovered all through this expertise. One among my buddies on Instagram additionally, had her home burned down and we have 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 conclusion that 99% of the issues in your own home are replaceable, and it’s one thing that I feel 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 children’ portray, and issues like that. However total, 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 feel that that’s good. I feel that it needs to be encouraging and it needs to 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 can change in sooner or later with an inventory and a bank card. You already know what I imply? Yeah. So, anyway, from my perspective, I wasn’t actually upset concerning the individual, I believed it was imply, what they mentioned. However the extra I considered it, the extra I used to be like, to begin with, I’m grateful that I do know now that all the things’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 youngsters simply as many books, in all probability far more in our new residence, 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 good children’ library for an additional household to get pleasure from. And that was truly a extremely cool expertise. I felt like I used to be compensated for making this stunning factor and I’ll be capable of make one other one for my children 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: Apart from me, I’m gonna decide you as a lot as I would like, as traditional. 

Elsie: I do know. I truly, love your judgements although. That’s high-quality. I can take it for certain. 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 in order 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 accumulating 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 price range 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 type of factor? 

Elsie: Sure. I undoubtedly have some buying tricks to share. So the very first thing is, I feel it’s necessary to have an inventory of stuff you wanna purchase instantly, like a quick checklist, and stuff you wanna accumulate over time, a gradual checklist. So some examples of issues that I feel could 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 suppose 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 considered it a bit 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 might additionally name the furnishings layer. And it does embrace curtains and rugs, however just about the issues that make your room useful and comfy, like having the correct amount of tables and chairs. We talked earlier than about how one thing annoying that occurred was that throughout 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 residence, we solely had one on the porch. By just about probably the most intense a part of the pandemic when it was like staying residence 24-7 instances, and that was like an enormous mistake. So this time, despite the fact that I might’ve relatively 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 performed, 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, basic items, that is sensible. Okay, you simply talked about Wayfair, however you’ve additionally talked about that you just actually like altering your model. It’s gonna be very Knives Out one, Knives Out, initially impressed. So how a lot of the home to this point at the very least, 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 suppose could be my follow-up query?

Elsie: So I might say it’s been 50/50 to this point, 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, truly, we met our mother and father in St. Louis for a Mom’s Day weekend, after which I drove residence along with her, after which I had three days to spend. I didn’t also have a automotive, I simply stayed on the pink home and walked backwards and forwards from the pink home to our new home your entire time. 

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

Elsie: It rained a ton. I had a rain jacket that was good. After which, flew residence 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 packing containers, and arrange all of the furnishings. So we did get a superb quantity of recent furnishings, particularly issues with very particular sizes. For instance, bedside tables, eating tables, sofas, and rugs have been principally new. Truly, I bought a superb quantity of classic rugs too. I feel classic rugs are actually, very easy to seek 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 all the time do and I simply believed it could be there. 

Emma: She manifested the furnishings.

Elsie: Yeah. Nevertheless it’s true that they all the time do and really the entry desk that I actually needed, I had seen it earlier than a few instances in the past, so it had been there for a short while. So I bought a few units of chairs and I feel 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 useful. However I beloved 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 feel I’m gonna attempt to maintain going 50/50, I feel it’s a superb 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 means. I don’t wanna have something you can 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 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 recreation. 

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 model simply modified in a single day. The home I needed 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 in addition it was like, do you bear in mind once we learn the guide enjoying large 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 method that I might’ve gravitated towards in any means. So I type of love that I really feel like I’m like dwelling 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 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 a bit little bit of each, you’re proper although.

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

Elsie: Sure. I really feel like knowledgeable shopper. It has been fairly enjoyable. It was possibly so much 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 a bit bit like a mind-bending train. I feel I undoubtedly bought buying fatigue. The place I’ve needed to type of like return and that’s the place I feel 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 particular issues the place I do know I can all the time add it later, however yeah my suggestions are, to begin with, I had a non-public pin board with all the things saved that I needed 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 taking place, I began this pin board of beds, dressers, rugs, all the primary stuff, the issues which are 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 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 giant purchases from large 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 purchase it for, I don’t know, possibly $10 or $20, and also you get like a 20% off coupon, which might be a whole lot of {dollars} if you’re shopping for main purchases. Like once I purchased my children’ 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 superb tip. I don’t suppose it’s actually that large of a deal in on a regular basis life if you’re shopping for one or two issues, however if you’re shopping for quite a lot of stuff it’s tremendous useful. It’s just about like a Black Friday sale or one thing you can 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 quite a lot of work. I actually don’t do it for each room, however I do it for the rooms the place I’m having bother deciding. I feel it’s actually, actually useful, particularly for bedrooms. In case 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 function place the place you may see all of it. And just be sure you get the appropriate stability that you just’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 suggestions. 

Emma: Effectively, you talked about you have 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 have been right here by your self. 

Elsie: Yeah, I might actually say the toughest I’ve ever labored in my life is sort of a three-day interval. It was so bodily onerous. 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 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 a bit safer for like kids and stuff. And I’ll hyperlink it within the present notes as a result of it’s an incredible field cutter. It’s undoubtedly all I exploit it cuts by means of 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 incredible buy. Everybody wants it. It’s not only for children as a result of I simply considered it as safer for teenagers. In case you by chance go away it out with the children. 

Emma: No, once I noticed it, I used to be like, oh, I can buy a kind of as a result of I all the time 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 all the time 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 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 scenario 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 number 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 onerous, so quick. After which once I left, all of the furnishings was unboxed, all of the packing containers have been off the porch. Thanks, Mother and Dad. The one factor that I didn’t get performed 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 suggest it when you’re shifting right into a home when 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, day-after-day so we may get extra performed. 

Emma: Yeah as a result of that stuff’s heavy. You want somebody that will help you transfer one thing like you may’t do it by yourself. 

Elsie: And my father-in-law was the largest badass of all time. Yeah, he shouldn’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 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 superb Father’s Day reward. 

Elsie: Anyway, it was completely value it, it was so enjoyable and I can’t wait to maneuver in and present the children, we left cute issues of their rooms to make them really feel at residence. 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. Effectively, 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. Positively converse up if there are one or two issues that you just similar to love a lot that you understand 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 suppose it’s good to study the life lesson, that nearly all the things is replaceable. And actually, you can purchase a complete new home of stuff in a weekend and it’s okay, it’s not that large of a deal. So I don’t know, I really feel like that’s a superb reminder that crucial issues in our residence. It’s actually 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 may simply get extra.

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

Elsie: It’s magical and I need 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 type of forgot that I pre-ordered it after which it simply comes within the mail because the guide comes out, and I’m like, sure, previous self has shocked future self and I’m so glad. Then you definitely like have the guide 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, when you like, Rainbow Pasta, issues like that, cute, stunning. 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 appears to be like very stunning. It’s very rainbowy. However the different factor I needed to say about him is that he’s the rationale 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 children at residence, the stress, I feel lots of people at the moment have been like, we’re staying residence. 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 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 cheerful, fantastic place.

Emma: They need to make it like a button in TikTok and Instagram the place like when you rejoin, you may put within the identify of the one who 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 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 cheerful 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 bought hypnotized for not biting my nails and I’ve been doing nice with that, which is superior. And anyway, I just lately 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 superb cuticle oil, I like that, nevertheless it’s actually small. It’s the scale of a pen so you may 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 when 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 a bit clicking sound as you push the oil by means of the comb. I’m gonna do it for you. I don’t know when you can hear that, however, so it makes this little clicking sound after which the oil comes up by means of the comb and then you definitely simply brush it in your cuticles and I find it irresistible. 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 a bit bit above common, however they’re, so far as taking good care of 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 reality with Nova. Hey, Nova, this week, do you might have a joke for us or a reality?

Nova: Joke. 

Elsie: Okay. 

Nova: What does a peanut go, like?
