Yesterday I was visiting with my friend Gen and she told me about happy tape. Gen is a master packager and I am a wanna be master packager so this tape really does make us happy. It is very reasonably priced and the colors and patterns are beautiful. I like to buy my wrapping paper in bulk from places like Nashville Wrap they last forever. I usually go for the solid paper and then have fun with the add-ons.
Our towels have been looking beyond tired and I have been waiting for Neiman Marcus or Horchow to put their Ralph Lauren towels on sale. (I like the monogram options.) The sale is here and if you enter code NMSHIP with Neiman Marcus your towels will ship for free. At $11.49 per towel I think that they are hard to beat. I love white towels with a colored monogram to match the room. This time I am going to do individual ones for each of my kids so that I will know who left their towel on the floor.
I am in a major cooking rut. But I am hopeful that with the change in seasons will come a renewed interest in trying new recipes. Tonight I stumbled upon this fabulous blog (fresh 365) that seems to be just what I need. Her photos are beautiful and I can't wait to try out some of her recipes.
