I was perusing xJavierx’s Flickr photostream, and saw these hexagonal magnetic spice racks, and just had to post it here. I really love this – it reminds me of honeycomb tiles in a vintage bathroom. It would make an amazing “backsplash” in a kitchen! I can’t say that I use all the spices I have that often, and more often than not, I would prefer to have them hidden away as opposed to sitting out on my cabinets. But this solution solves both of those problems – It’s an attractive way to display something that could potentially take up a lot of drawer/cabinet/counter space. Not only is the design idea completely inspired and aesthetically gorgeous, but the pricepoint is awesome too. At $42, this would make an awesome wedding present or a housewarming gift – plus it’s handmade! I love Etsy!
Today I’m thankful for:
- the love of my husband and my family. Their unfailing support and compassion.
- fresh new sheets on our bed (thank you, Mom!)
- pretty bright sunshine streaming in my windows. We’re having 75 degree days in November!
- flowers from my husband this weekend (a sweet surprise)
- hugs and kisses from my little redhead
- the color of our walls. Seriously. It really makes me happy to walk into my green bedroom or coral office. It lifts my spirits!
- ChickfilA chicken. And waffle fries.
Are you female? Are you in OKC? Do you love to shop? Do you love cheese and chocolate and all things yummy? Then you should probably check out this Ladies’ Night Out that I got an email about this week — Here’s the 411.
Ladies’ Night Out Featuring Kokopelli
The Melting Pot, 4 E. Sheridan Ave., Bricktown
Monday, Nov 16, 2009
Reservations available all evening beginning at 5.
Ladies can shop the fun and contemporary fashions of Kokopelli, featuring chunky jewelry, eclectic and classical apparel, purses and accessories. Door prizes will be available.
Enjoy four-course fondue for $35 per person, plus tax and gratuity. Call (405) 235-1000 or visitwww.meltingpot.com for reservations.
I adore the Melting Pot. I haven’t been in ages, but the food is so delicious. The hardest part is choosing whether or not you’re going to have the cheese fondue, or hold out for the chocolate at the end. Or, just throw all caution to the wind and have both!
While these darling little clothespin elves aren’t available anymore, I did enjoy perusing the Flickr stream and blog of AllSorts. I was trolling Flickr for holiday ideas, and stumbled on these. They look like something cute my Aunt Patsy could make!
