Honor Roll


Sometimes I come across something so cute/sweet/charming/funny/pretty/inspiring/lovely that I just want to share it with you.  These are the things that have made my  honor roll.


I also write for Babble’s Family Style blog. Here’s what I’ve been sharing there…

    I love roller derby! I must confess, I have my roller skates in the trunk just in case there is a need for a skating emergency.

      I love that. You never know when you need to be on 8 wheels…

    Hahaha love the derby name! I had no idea roller derbies went back to 1948!! If not possibly farther! Great pics! Good stuff!

      They go way back, with ties to Chicago originally!

    You’ve seen Ikea’s new pharmacy floor lamp? Not the same, but similar. Its only $60.

      It’s nice, but not quite what I’m after. I’m being terribly picky about this lamp, I know.

    Dear Mrs. Elle De Gore,

    I had to force myself to stop looking at factory20 because they seem to understand what I want very well, but rather unfortunate, not the capability of my wallet.

    Oh! I love the candle sconces! They would be a great center piece for a special someone’s birthday!

    Love the candle holders. Can totally see that as paper—never mind the safety issue there!

      A slight safety issue as paper candle holders! Could be great as just decor though.
