A few of my new favorite things......

These adorable stitch markers are for sale at Three Bags Full, I hear!





My dear friend Jennifer gave me four bejeweled votive holders. I think they are the cat's meow. Fireman thinks they are gawdy. What do you think?








I simply adore Natasha Fadeeva's handmade stuffed animals. I would invite these mice in from the cold, but my feline friends would frighten them in short order......







some other of my favorite things:
Jack LaLane......what a great man who thought and acted so positive

the ads for Crumbs cupcakes. They are new to Chicago. Have you had them? Are they moist???

Another new candle give to me by a friend, that makes a crackling noise when lit. Have you ever?

and finally
my new mattress..........I have had 5 sleeps on it, and I am in love. A Beautyrest....


I talk more in the comments!

I think Fireman is right. But I like it! Congrats on the mattress! We are due for a new one very soon.

You write gaudy likes it's a bad thing. Never too much bling for a candle. LOL

I love those WoodWick candles. They smell so good! Much less cloying than a Yankee Candle.

There is a Crumbs near me. LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!!!!! They are awesome. Expensive, but awesome. The flavors are incredible. They are so big, we only eat them 1/4 at a time, so one cupcakes lasts several days. Yum!

I don't think the candle is gaudy at all but I've been told that I tend to find art in "strange" places. Anyway, I like it! I also love the cute little mousies!! I can just hear your kitties...
"Love them little mousies,
Mousies what I love to eat.
Bite they little heads off,
Nibble on they little feet."

We're approaching one year with our Sleep Number. Le sigh...

Doesn't every girl need a little gaudy?

Love the little sheep! I saw some sushi stitch markers on Etsy. Must resist spending money!

A little gaudy is beautiful. Gaudy is only gaudy when there's too much of it.

We need a new mattress badly, but I'm afraid of buying one that we'll regret so we're procrastinating. Glad you like yours.

I love the stitch markers and the little mouse! So cute.
Our bed is getting pretty old and I'd love to try a memory foam mattress, but my husband is convinced that he wouldn't like it.

Jack LaLanne lived in my town. We used to see him around - he was really having a great time being a personality.

We have a Crumbs bakery and I have to admit that they are beautiful, sound scrumptious, but seriously lack in the taste department. They try too hard and fall short.

The Crumbs cupcakes are moist and delicious. They are large enough to split with someone else and still have a yummy treat for each of you. Enjoy!
