But this is my DROP DEAD favorite …
Hello? It's a custom laundry line necklace. I can't even stand how adorable this is! Thanks Jenna for the link (love you!)

P.S. I think you'd really like Lisa. Read her BLOG.



I might be the last person on the planet to hear about Twig & Thistle, but then maybe I'm not in which case you will want to know and go. My sister Darci introduced me to Kathleen's site. Kathleen lives in Seattle and that alone qualifies her for a visit. I found #3 on my list at Twig & Thistle.


I can't even tell you how hip I think these remedies are. Intuitive packaging + great design (LOVE that.) And when you visit the "help I need help" website, be sure to click on the "bored?" tab and build yourself a help T-shirt. I did.

How about this adorable heirloom growth chart. Exceptionally clever people (like scrapbookers) could make their own. Others can buy it from the RedHot Target Shop.

We played a clever game at our family reunion (I'll have to post about it later) for which I "had" to purchase several candy bars. I am now a fan of Hershey Zero bars. Anyone else eaten a ZERO bar and come away impressed?

Happy Day.


  1. Just found your blog! Yes I’m a fan of Hershey Zero too! Yummy. :)

  2. I heard something about the original Zero bars on NPR I think!

    Thanks for the Twig & Thistle link…it lead to a blog that lead to a flickr page that lead to a blog that lead to another blog…..
    Ended up getting instructions for gorgeous origami flowers and added a few blogs to my list of blogs to check.
    Thanks for the inspriration – I’m at a creative low and hoping that when the kids go back to school soon, I’ll get my mind back on tract creatively…not that I haven’t enjoyed the time w/ the kids on a different level!! :)

  4. I have been a fan of zero bars since childhood. Love those!!

  5. I used to eat frozen Zero bars at the local pool as a kid. Nice refreshing treat on a hot day

  6. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE LISA LEONARD! I have 4 of her necklaces! Her blog & photography is SO sweet too. I would love to meet her one day!

  7. Fun stuff!!! I have to tell you: we bought a Lisa Leonard teacher necklace for the teacher gift last year – huge hit :)

  8. thank you for the shout out!! xoxo

  9. Stacy — I went to the “Help I need help” website. I clicked on one of the remedies and it changed! For fun I kept clicking and eventually it disappeared. Then I did another. It cycled through all the options and disappeared! I thought it was a game so I kept going! Guess what happened when I made them all disappear???
    The page changed and took me to a help website for Obsessive Compulsive Disorders help group!!! ‘
    a ha hah ahahahhhhhaaaa!
