All I Hear Are Cricuts

Tuesday, October 30th, 2012

Good Morning Darlings!

No, I haven’t stopped using my spell check. The cricuts I’m talking about are not the creepy crawly kind, but those swanky little machines that allow you to blow everyone away with your creativity!

You have to see what they can do!

Swoozie’s Spiffs Up Summer

Monday, July 16th, 2012

Good Morning Darlings!

Do you remember last year when I was just dying over Swoozie’s Corkcicles?

Oh my goodness, me, they come in a variety of colors now! LOVE THEM!

Colorful Corkcicles!

A fresh color from Monday – Friday! And at $24.95, they are still the coolest (get it?) hostess gift around.

Hint, Hint

I’m just sayin’!

A Thing I Need

Thursday, December 8th, 2011

Good Morning Darlings!

Yesterday we discussed things you shouldn’t be without.

Today, one thing I have to have.

Call it “One of Patti’s Favorite Things”

This.

I need this. Swoozie's are you listening?

I just think this is the greatest thing ever. No drippy ice buckets, just tidy Chardonnay bottles lining the table, all corked with assorted Corkcicles.

Friends and loved ones, are you reading?

xoxo, Patti
