Tinsel Filled Icicles

I'm not tinsel's biggest fan.  It feels weird and looks a bit messy on a tree.  Even so, I love that tinsel reminds me of my childhood Christmas trees; tinsel included, those trees were perfect to me.  So as you can imagine, these Tinsel Filled Icicles from Terrain have found me a happy medium.  A little update to an old fashion tree trimming tradition. I love it!

M-CUPS™ by Fred

I've held off buying new measuring cups to replace my current tough-to-clean, 10-in-1 measuring contraption because I simply haven't found a more practical set that's cute enough.  But then came M-CUPS™ by Fred! This set of 6 dry-measure cups nests neatly just like traditional Russian matryoshkas. They measure 1/4, 1/3, 1/2, 2/3, 3/4 and 1 full cup, and they’re built from heavy-duty, food-safe, long-life engineering plastics. Sold! Where do I pay?

Camilla Belle

Belle indeed.  Love Camilla's style.  I'm not sure she could ever look bad, and you might even yawn at the mere mention of her because it's not like she has to try hard to look so perfect, but I just couldn't resist blogging about her.  I hate to say it, but her loveliness is inspiring. I know...I'm so predictable.

Palace Stacking Dinnerware

How cool is Seletti's Palace Stacking Dinnerware?! Space saving, decorative and architectural dinnerware all in one! Picture it as the centerpiece of your dinner party spread, and your guests watch as you whimsically fan out the pieces to set the table... L.O.V.E.

Want it, need it, will become fat for it.  Well, I don't actually 'need' it - but I can't take my eyes off the pistachio KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer.  I will bake for it.  I know I'm not alone in believing KitchenAid mixers take a kitchen to the next level of heartiness, but the pistachio colored mixer makes me feel all sorts of good crazy!  It serves as motivation to become my kitchen's greatest asset. It could happen!
