It’s been a while since I did a Friday FIVE and I’m really excited to share, as I’ve had some of these picks in mind for weeks …
Freeze Dried Veggie Chips from Nuts.com Click HERE.
This is my number ONE pick, because I’m 100% elated with this new website that I found. I’ve placed and received two orders and have been so impressed with the overall user experience, including the customer service and the design of the product packaging.
Do me a favor and poke around a little, decide to buy something yummy and then throw in a tub of the freeze-dried veggies. They aren’t THE most healthy thing in the world (but they have come through in a Friday-night pinch when everyone around me has ice-cream or cookies!
Curly Girl Napkins. Learn all about Curly Girl here.
So, I discovered Curly Girl years ago and have been a HUGE fan ever since. Last year however I was privileged to meet Leigh Stanley (Curly Girl) in person at The Creative Connection event and that was a delightful thrill! If you know me at all, then you know I have a thing for decorative napkins and every single time (I’m not exaggerating) that I see Curly Girl napkins I buy them. Every single time–after all, it feels really good to know exactly how you will act in a given situation! Anyway, I just really like this particular sentiment and it’s message of faith, fancy and a little mischief!!
Life is Good mugs. Click here to see them all.
Several years ago, I cleaned out our mug collection (saved only 3 or 4 very meaningful ones) and then took the whole family to the Life is Good store for T-shirts and mugs. These are now my favorite mugs and it’s getting to be that time of year, where we make warm cocoa or Pero practically every night. I love that these mugs feel heavy in your hand and that the ceramic is nice and thick — of course the colors and designs make me happy too!
Annie Sloan’s Chalk Paint. Click here to learn more.
So, I have almost signed up twice to take an Annie Sloan’s chalk paint class, but finally just purchased some and re-painted my homework table. I was instantly sold and now really want to take a class, but seriously, this is the smoothest and most awesomest paint I have ever used and YES, you can write on it when it’s dry–it is like a chalk board.
I had so much fun painting and was so thrilled with the outcome that I even created a page about my refreshed homework table. And I used Annie Sloan’s paint on my page!
Fat Baby boots. Click here to see what Cavenders.com carries.
As of first thing this morning, these are on their way to me. I made myself wait over night and woke up thinking about them, so figured that was a sign, ha! I’m pretty excited. I’ve always liked cowboy boots, but never had any of my own and I love that these are shorter and (I think) exceptionally versatile and stylish! I had never even heard of this brand (you?) and there are so many unique styles and color combinations …
… but green + giraffe? Hello! Must be mine.
