Soy To The World

Every once in a great while some amazing product comes along and shoots me with cupid’s arrow. Swiffer duster pads (they grab every dust particle instead of pushing ‘em around). The Diva jeans by Old Navy (I swear they’re better than Sevens- I own three pairs). Life cereal (is there crack in there?). And now there’s a new product to shower with affection: Method Holiday Aroma Soy Candles.

Love, love, love the streamlined curves. Worship, worship, worship the yummy peppermint vanilla and cinnamon bark scents. Adore, adore, adore the fact that they’re made from eco-friendly (and health-friendly) soy. So don’t walk, run to the nearest Target and snatch up as many as you can. At under seven dollars a pop, they’re a total steal (and they last longer than most other under-ten-dollar varieties). And because they’re only available in these cute shapes and scents over the holidays, it’s time to make ample room in your closet for enough to last you til next November.

Beachy Keen: Adding Curtains To The Sunroom

After months of meaning to hang some curtains in our all glass sunroom to soften things up, John and I finally made the move yesterday. We took white $5 cotton panels (gotta love Ikea) and hung them in all four corners of the sunroom to block minimum light but give it a clean beachy vibe. And we didn’t even have to go to Lowe’s for hanging supplies. John just used twine and nails to secure them right under the molding for maximum height. Very MacGuyver of him, huh?

Here’s a before shot for reference:
