Notice I didn't call it a time-WASTING list? Here's my current list of favorite things:
++Blueprint's feature on David and Amy Butler's home.
++Dharma Trading's selection of dye-able bamboo fabrics. I'm so glad bamboo as a textile is catching on; it has many wonderful qualities.
++I've been on a mission to reduce the number of catalogs we get at our apartment, and it was taking forever to contact each company individually until Amy mentioned this site. Couldn't be easier: you log in, select the catalog you want to eliminate, enter the customer code number on the back of the catalog, and you're done!
++Hable Construction's Design Your Mantle feature. Very cute! Tsia has been playing with it and loves the "pirate" stockings. (At our house, anything with a skull and crossbones is known as a pirate.) I wish Hable would design a quilt fabric line. I'm sure it would sell phenomenally well.
++Heather Moore's wonderful tea towels. I just purchased this one (Heather's photo, above) and love it. I'm thinking Christmas gifts. Hmmm. Here's another designer who should be doing a quilt fabric line!
Crest spinbrush. I never understood why people like electric toothbrushes until I tried this. And for under $7.00?!? Battery operated, and my teeth feel so clean afterwards! Plus, it's better for the environment to replace the just head than to buy a whole new toothbrush. Just be sure to use re-chargeable batteries.
++Paper Source holiday catalog. Here's one I won't be removing with Catalog Choice. Current drools: the snaps, Xyron 900 machine (someone tell me: are they really as useful as they seem?), and that cute pinecone stamp. I guess it's time for me to get busy making our Christmas cards. Hmm, can I justify placing an order if I buy stuff for the cards?
