our new jar

Thursday, May 14, 2009

I sort of hesitate to show you our new cookie jar because we found it at target on the clearance shelf. I checked on line and didn't see it.... but maybe your store may still have a few.
We are really diggin' this over here, as we love anything with chalk.
I can always trick them with an empty sign. (I'm sure they will be on to that quickly.)
And if you are a trucker then you may be in luck.

(I have no idea what that was about but I found it to be pretty darn cute.)

We are headed out of town tomorrow for the weekend.  A seven hour car ride as a passenger. That's seven hours there and seven hours back.  Sounds like a lot of knitting time.  Hopefully I can finish Plisse.
Have a wonderful weekend.

  5. Oh, you get the BEST stuff! Wow. I am going to go look for that at my Tar-jay. Just made the blondies you recommended a couple of months ago. Again. They probably won't make it into the jar, should I find one, since they'll be gone soon. Oh well.

    Have a great trip!

  57. Your weblog is fine. I simply need to comment on the design. Its too loud. Its doing method too much and it takes away from what youve got to say --which I feel is admittedly important. I dont know if you happen to didnt suppose that your phrases may hold everyones attention, however you have been wrong. Anyway, in my language, there usually are not much good source like this.
