      Isn't it cute? I carefully undid the wrapping this morning…saving for a one-day paper project!

    I LOVED your Style Me Pretty interview and photos! The things you fill your beautiful home with really remind me of our own….simple glass jars and vases, loose tea and pretty teapots, dried flowers, the Duralex Picardie glass on your desk. Found your blog through Cup of Jo and am really enjoying it šŸ™‚

    Hello! I found you after you posted on Cup of Jo – so glad I did! When you upgraded to the fog linen towels, did you find they were a bit softer/more absorbent than the standard terry cloth? I love the idea of a quick drying towel but might have more trouble convincing my boyfriend to make the switch!

    Love love love reading your posts šŸ™‚
