Well, of course you can see why I had to have them. ... Actually, I had my eye on them for quite some time, but they were spendy. Then, out-of-the-blue, Pinterest alerted me that they had been reduced in price.... Continue reading

Oh, how I love it when that happens. We went on a fun little RV roadtrip this past weekend, and I was lucky enough to get to make a pit stop at a Goodwill Thrift Store in Tillamook. Then, on... Continue reading

We had a sudden burst of glorious springtime warm weather this past weekend, and I took full advantage of it by running to Home Depot to buy up as many sun-loving hydrangeas as I could find. Most hydrangeas like shade,... Continue reading

Thanks so much for your comment. I checked out the article. It was very interesting, however I did not see anything talking about the little plastic cups, only curved silly straws.

It would be interesting to know how their flannel backed vinyl tablecloths score as well! Thanks again and thanks for reading my blog, Tracey
