Oh, the Regency is lovely, just get it stained instead of painted. White wood is going to show all the fingerprints and jello-splatters for sure.
For your B-R-A-S, you have to do like my Nana taught us. You crumble a little of MAG's lavender into ice cube trays, fill the trays with water and freeze. They make great 'tracing' cubes and aren't nearly as messy to get out of your bra as berries. (This is also from the woman who told me "put a dot of vanilla behind each ear and you'll smell like a cookie all day". *g*)
