Marry Me

I might have mentioned this before, but I'm pretty sure that if I ran away with Schoolhouse Electric's Stephenson Chair, we would be very happy together.

Sure, I might miss the Husband, but is he felted? Striped? Woolen? I think not.

Paws for a Cause

Harry Barker, the great purveyor of all accessories canine, has a new line designed to benefit Canines for Veterans.

CFV is a non-profit that matches shelter dogs with wounded veterans. Military prisoners train the dogs to service veterans with mobility-related injuries, PTSD, or traumatic brain injuries. The dogs learn a variety of tasks, from object retrieval to wheelchair pushing, and are then matched with a veteran companion.

Harry Barker's Canines for Veterans products range from leashes and leads to personalized buckets chock full of toys and treats. A substantial portion of all sales proceeds go to CFV.

The best treat of all, of course, is helping and honoring American service-people through CFV.

Wag on!

Bag Lady

When personality types were divvied up at birth I planted myself firmly in the A+ line. (Please, please, don't act surprised). This creates all sorts of fun in our household, including at the grocery store. Not only do I insist upon lining up the groceries neatly on the belt - items with hard edges first, and mind the bananas - I also care deeply about the bags I bring with me.

(The Husband has one of those "Feed" bags from Whole Paycheck. I support the cause; hate the bag.)

Trish Banner of Cottage by Design seems to have just the thing for the "My groceries should look as good as my hair" crowd. If, in fact, we can be deemed a crowd.

Banner's French Market tote, available for a mere 40 clams on Etsy, comes in a host of colors, and it's vinyl handles will be sturdy enough for all of your pinot - blanc or noir.

Find the tote here.
