Yay, Pretty Plates!

December 20, 2007

So, I have the best bosses in the world. No, really. I do. I’m not just sucking up because one of them reads this blog. But they are nice, and funny, and actually care about my career and well-being… what more can you ask for? Well.. AMAZING CHRISTMAS GIFTS! They just gave me mine, and it’s these beautiful Boho dessert plates from Rosanna that I blogged about a while ago. They’re so lovely—and perfect for serving all of Jo the MasterBaker‘s creations (and occasionally a cookie or two of my own). Thank you!!!

Tea Cup Roulette

December 13, 2007

This tea cup is super fun—even though I realize it’d be annoying/impossible to keep putting the cup down at the exact right spot to match the date. (via SwissMiss) Still, I like the idea. Click here to check out a few more cool tea cups that were designed for the The Creation Gallery in Ginza. I like this “T” cup too, below. Go ahead J… name all the fonts!

Amazing Giveaways

December 3, 2007

There are 2 insanely incredible FREE giveaways going on this week, just in time for the holidays. First, of course, over at GoodyBlog we’re have a giant Blog Party and giving away everything from kids’ toys and clothes to new Play Station systems. But, the image above is the one I really wish I could win: a box full of goodies from Williams-Sonoma. I organized this one, so I’ve seen the products first-hand and everything is so beautiful and fun. I beg you to enter since I’m not allowed 😦 There’s also a fabulous one from Gourmet Garden, where you can win their entire line of spices plus an 8-piece stainless steel cookware set. Merry Christmas to you!

Next is this awesome giveaway from YumSugar and Hostess with the Mostess. I can’t even begin to list all the amazing kitchen goods that they’re giving away b/c there are just too many, but let me just say that it’s worth more than $7,900 in prizes. Wowzer! You have to login and take a quiz to enter (which I scored 100% on, thank you very much), but it’s definitely worth it! So start entering and let me know if there are any other good holiday giveaways I’m missing!

Time for Tea!

How pretty is this tea-cup and kettle (via Serious Eats)? It’s getting colder, and the trees are losing all their leaves, and I’m in the mood for some hot tea, warm blankets, and continual screenings of Love Actually. These daydreams make the impending cold weather bearable.

Love this! Only a theory as of now, but someone make this happen ASAP! Sangria would taste so delicious.

I Forgot About the Environment Yesterday!

October 16, 2007

Yesterday was Blog Action Day, and I had signed up and promised to post something eco-friendly on my blog. And… I forgot. So, I thought better late than never. Here’s one of my favorite eco-living places to shop for kitchen goodies: VivaTerra. They sell handcrafted work that is from the “purest ingredients and sustainable resources possible.” Plus, everything’s pretty. I really love the Root of the Earth bowls, baskets, and platters—they’re hand-carved from the discarded root balls of Chinese fir trees into varied shaped bowls. It looks a lot like the decor I saw at Irving Mill last night!
