friday favorites

another round of some of my favorite things :) 

first up is Cherish and Joy.  they make the little silky that is attached to hank's thumb every second.  his is backed in red and multi striped on the other side.
the reason i love this company so much is that when i called to find a backup for hank's discontinued silky the company HAND pieced together another silky for him made up of two sample pieces of the multi striped pieces that his silky is made of.   WHO does that anymore??    

next up is Land's Ends Tote Bag.  we have the large, navy piped one with our last name and "family" monogrammed on it says: "the ____ family" . i love this tote stands up...the bottom is dark.  we use it for the beach, for long trips, for overnights etc.

finally....the Dollar Store!! :) can you guess which items below are from this lovely store? the glasses!!!  now i'm talking about the TRUE dollar stores where every item is ONE dollar.... we have four dollar stores around us and only one (the dollar tree) is a true, every-item-in-the-store-is-a-dollar.

i was looking for martini and goblet glass glasses and i found them there!  they are heavy and CUTE!  you would never ever guess dollar store. :)  i used them for this drink bar i set up for a bridal shower i helped in hosting for my future sister in law....and these glasses were the perfect low budget touch.  don't  forget to check out the dollar store people! :)

God Bless America! and....A Winner!!!
