Great Find

For months I've been looking for something to keep my current needle work in that wouldn't be an eye soar in my living room. There are obviously lots of options out there but I was looking for a GREAT price and I found it:) I went to the clearance isle at Walmart and found this large picnic basket sitting there just for me. The problem was it didn't have a price tag. Hoping for the best I took it to the check out with me. The manager happened to be close by and on finding out I had this basket she let me have it for $3 because she was sick of it coming up to the register and not being able to find a price for it. I love it!!!

Great Idea!!!

I follow a blog called kojodesigns and one of the things they do for fun when they get together, like on vacation, is have a drink making contest. My husband and I don't drink alchohol but we can totally do something else!! i.e. guacamole/salsa contest for a chip night or smoothies!! This would be PERFECT for Christmas or our family trip to the Outer Banks next Summer:) each family make's a different smoothie and we serve them in really small paper cups, then we can have several different flavors in one night!!
