Thursday Things I Love! (Nikon)

Was I ever happy to get my mail last week!
My beloved Nikon (which looks exactly like, but is not in fact, the one above) is BACK!!!!! And this puppy is most definitely qualifies as a T.T.I.L.
I was especially pleased that the lens repair was covered under warranty.
Look for much better pictures to come!

Quick Fix Friday (Hole in Cami)

This little hole in one of my white camisoles has driven me bonkers for months now.
And it literally took me a minute to take these pictures, pin it, and sew it.
Will I ever learn how easy these fixes can be if I just pause and do them?!

Thursday Things I Love! (Salt and Pepper)

This week, you get two Thursday Things I Love for the price of one! Okay so I'm not charging you, but you get the idea.
Let's start with these. For Mother's Day my super-fab husband bought me the salt and pepper shakers that match our New Wave dishes.
I LOVE them!
And because I have them on the dining room table, I can now leave my other shakers on the stove within easy reach of any food I need to flavor.
But this caused another problem. The pepper mill was always dropping little black bits across the top of my white stove. Frustrating!
Thankfully -- I have a friend who is a ceramics wizard. Carrie made us this fabulous tray just for us.
The glaze is actually a lot more blue-green than it appears in these pictures and it works nicely with all the other blue in our kitchen and dining room.
Best of all, it works! No more continually cleaning up pepper for me! Thank you thank you thank you Carrie!

Quick Fix Friday (Taped Books)

Does anyone else have a toddler who likes to randomly engage in the sport of book-ripping?
This week's Quick Fix Friday was performed with simple tape.
It's not much to report, but I finally taped up Rock's ripped books...
And restored them to read-ready status. So before you throw away your kids 'well-loved' stories, apply a little clear packing tape and give them a second chance!
Amazing how a little tape can take this and make it look like....
