a. The best-est of can pumpkin to secretly stir into the kids morning oats. Shhh..don't tell. They're oblivious to my fast hand.

If there's a right way to still embrace winter, tweed is it.
Whether it's the tweed clutch you use to take to the PTA meeting or the tweed flask of ___ you have hidden in it.
The classic tweed jacket you wear to take a quick run in the store.
Or even the tweedy round placemats you use to eat dessert in front of the fireplace, on the floor.
Tweed is still in according to Punxsutawney Phil, so dig in.
Happy Huesday, gals!
S - :)

It's come to my attention - - that there are some gals still using their mama's hand-me-down flatwares in la kitchen. Even after several littles later.
Well girls, I'm here to share - that there IS another color besides our mom's silver. And even if you still want silver, it can be bamboo-ish. Exciting, right?
Here's my proposal -- in-between your Netflix binging of the newly released season 2 of House of Cards (chapter 24-!!), count your pennies and update your kitchy flatware drawers this week. You won't regret it.
a. painted spoons. b. white flatware that makes me want to swoon. c. this rose gold would never get old. d. safari worthy and pretty pink cars. e. metallic flatware in mason jars. f. these bamboos from blooms makes me want to break out the expensive shampoos.
Happy Huesday Tuesday --
*also, if you're needing to update your office attire, go here
*fruit bowl obsessed like me? go yonder
