I am spending the morning ORGANIZING! My desk drawer looks especially fabulous thanks to our new Office Accessories- all conveniently packed in kraft boxes, to keep everything in the right place and looking good. Sold individually or as a set. Anything that helps keeps us on our game is not considered a want, but rather a need. You need these.  Go for it!

Arrrrrrr, It’s International Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Pirate Sponge Set, $13

We like to live every day like it’s International Talk Like a Pirate Day, and you should, too. But in honor of today, we just added a brand new product: Pirate Sponge Set!

Wash & Stain Bar To The Rescue!

Wash & Stain Bar, $6.95

I was going to start this post saying that one of these days I’ll be able to wear white without spilling on myself, but at age 32 it still hasn’t happened, so I think the odds are stacked against me. It’s fortunate I work in a place with a deluxe line of laundry care products. Rather than accept the fact that my new white blouse was ruined, or even that I was going to have to spend the rest of the day with tomato juice dribbled down my front, it seemed like a great time to finally give the Wash & Stain Bar a whirl. I’m a huge fan of The Laundress products, and swear by the Stain Solution, but I hadn’t tried the Stain Bar yet. It’s a compact little bar of soap, but it packs a punch! After wetting down the stain I rubbed the bar over the affected area and let is sit for about an hour. Mercifully I had clean gym clothes to change into, so I wasn’t topless in the interim. After rinsing it clean, the stain is completely gone! Whew. Since it’s small, and a solid, it’s great for travel. I hear it’s also great for scrubbing out ring around the collar!

KUDOS to our Brilliant Customers!

St. Julia Candle, $16


SAUCED, $16.95



We fancy ourselves pretty good gift-givers, but sometimes a customer comes up with such a great idea, it blows our minds. This happened this week when a customer ordered the St. Julia Candle along with the SAUCED Measuring/Wine Glass! This combines two of our great loves: Julia Child and wine! Julia liked a drink herself, and the SAUCED box even features a quote most often attributed to her: “I enjoy cooking with wine. Sometimes I even put it in the food.”
