Special Bonus Post – Sending You Packing

Good Afternoon, Darlings!

I realize that it is rare for us to get together in the afternoon, but I had to share this with you.  Stephanie Johnson is having a sale!  For those of you who are not familiar with Stephanie and her bags, let me clue you in.  She has been featured in all the best fashion mags, from In Style to Vogue.  Plus, I used to be her personal assistant when I lived in L.A. (glamorous work if you can get it!) So I might be a wee bit partial to her. But with very good reason.

Fun Find Friday – Store It!

Good Morning, Darlings!

Eric and I are grilling more everyday. And although the kitchen is right inside, I would love to have a piece to store all my grilling goodies. Voila! Look at this prep station just made for outside. I love it! It is touted as a prep station, but I do believe it would make a fabulous outside bar – cocktails, anyone?

Prep, Cocktails, Fireworks Storage...Well Maybe Not Fireworks Storage...

What do you think? Isn’t it marvy? Lets see what the specs are:

The Suncast Serving Station makes cooking and dining “al fresco” that much more enjoyable! Sometimes when you’re grilling up a storm, you just don’t have a big enough landing area to set all your supplies, platters and flame-broiled masterpieces! Well, your problem is solved, my friend! Just roll this totally handy Serving Station up to your grill for prep made easy. Also makes a great spot to serve up appetizers! The details: Provides 40″-wide counter space with ceramic tile-looking surface; 2 drop down leaves allow you to customize surface area; Casters (2 locking, 2 non-locking) for easy mobility; Easy snap-together assembly requires NO tools; 20 x 34 x 22″ d. (leaves down), 40 x 34 x 22″ d. (leaves up).

It rolls, y’all! A rolling outdoor cocktail cart. Wouldn’t this make a perfect gift for Father’s Day? Or maybe just because it’s Friday!
