Now this makes sense... we can make all the throws we want one square at a time and who knows, you just might have enough to give away for Christmas presents!

 Now this is for those of you who have more money than you know what to do with. A throw that comes in at $1495 is way beyond my budget and I have to admit that I don't like the idea that it is trimmed with fox fur... as soft as that may be. Anyway, just thought that you might want to take a peek at how the other half lives. It's made of cashmere by the way!  I wonder what celebrities are snuggling down under this throw tonight??

I bought a book like this when my kids were small and it certainly helped when they began to get bored with the same old lunch day after day... well guess what, I still pull that book off the shelf years later. Snacks for me can get boring too!

I was thinking that I would simply put up a spring wreath, but I think that I like this better. And it would look rather fetching with those green fairy lights that I've strung on the shrubs. The spring wreath can wait a wee bit longer.

Another item that will add a festive flare to whatever room needs a night light. Okay, scratch that... doesn't matter if the room needs a night light or not... it would just look darn cute. And you get six of them!!

Have you given any thought to St. Patrick's Day?? Doesn't really matter if you have a speck of Irish blood... actually I can go back a few generations and find some and I imagine that if everyone looks hard enough, they can too lol... . And the fact that the house looks bare at the moment. That's the nice thing about holidays... you get to dress up the house all over again. But, when I first spotted these, I thought that they would have to be used INSIDE, but apparently they are good for indoor and outdoor use. I thought that they might be particularly effective on the shrubs. I'm completely useless when it comes to making them fit around a window. Now, shrubs... now that I can do!

Now this makes sense for a lot of reasons. First of all, it isn't heavy. We have central vac and I hate lugging the hoses up the stairs. Secondly, my son is faces with having his basement ripped apart because the central vac company doesn't know why it's not working. They say that they either rip down the walls or that they can sell him another unit for 1400 dollars. He's stuck behind a rock and a hard place. See why I'm leaning toward this style of vacuum!! And it does all the work for you. I'm liking that.

There is nothing quite like the tinkling of windchimes late at night... something almost magical. I picked this set because they have 8 chimes/tubes instead of the normal six. If you are into meditating on the front porch during the summer months, this should be perfect. *Or you can use that excuse for grabbing some down time during the day. Nothing wrong with just sitting and doing nothing during the day. ;)

This is kind of cool... especially if you have an area on the wall that is calling out for something unusual. Just in case you are wondering, if you open the door, there is a small mirror behind. 

An old wooden box with hinged lid , c1890 and old brown paint is deconstructed to form a flat facade with center door. When door opens, a mirror with a thin green border of old Venetian blind wood is revealed. On reverse of door is collage of antique pharmaceutical warning labels. The work hangs with special brackets on the back so that mirror is stable when opened.

Have you noticed that so many appliances are coming in gorgeous colors?? This wouldn't fit in with my garnet walls, but if I had a neutral kitchen, I would be so tempted. Talk about a splash of color!!
