Snuggle Down

Glacier Park Throw, $150

FRANKENSTORM is coming you guys!!! OK, maybe. Whether or not The Perfect Storm really will cause anything major remains to be seen, but that won’t stop most of us from stocking up and digging in for some serious hibernation this weekend. And the perfect accessory is our delicious new Glacier Park Throw! This is sooooo on my Want List. From the legendary Pendleton Mills, the Glacier Park Throw is luxurious feather-weight Merino wool, and trust me–it is heaven!

Banana Savers- are you bananas for bananas? protect yours :)

I carry our Banana Saver every day and use it constantly. It seriously hold ( and protects) every size and shape banana I’ve ever put in there. Nothing drives me bonkers like a bruised banana. Coco loves bananas, I love bananas and of course my Big Gorilla is bananas for bananas. Lately I’ve noticed a crazy phenomenon though: strangers stop me on the street and ask me where I got it, friends demand I sell them mine, out of town friends (most recently from Turkey) text me to say WE NEED BANANA SAVER! Or more correctly, two. Most people seem to buy them in pairs, maybe to give one to a friend who would also appreciate it? Anyway, get yours now! Banana Savers– $6.
