Friday Favorites

I'm so enjoying this Friday meme because I love sharing my favorites and I love reading about others favorites.  Who knows, one of your favorites might end up being a favorite of mine.  It's a "win win" for everyone.


I LOVE the Dollar Tree and if you do not have one in your area then you are definitely missing out.  I think it is the "top" dollar store.
On a recent visit I found the above items.  The bowls on the left and right are heavy plastic and they are so attractive.  They are great for carrying food to a function, to the sick, afflicted or bereaved and then you never have to worry about whether you get your container back.  I mean, it only cost $1. They also had rectangular and circular trays.  And, the goblets...........well, aren't they attractive?  They are real glass goblets and the perfect size for water or tea.  We can always use an extra goblet or two, right?

I was introduced to Origami Owl last summer and just recently purchased some.  It is the neatest jewelry that tells a story, your story.
If you are not familiar with Origami Owl, you can check it out here.  It also makes a lovely gift.  There has to be some kind of story about their name but I have yet to find out where it originated. It is sold through independent reps or online.  The possibilities are absolutely endless. ~a real conversation piece~
~~~~~~
I know,that's a scary picture of me, but one of my favorite times is when I get my hair colored and trimmed.  In this picture I was not only getting color but also hi-lites.  So, it was a double favorite time.  The only problem is that every 4 weeks rolls around really fast! ~vanity, vanity, thy name is woman~

 You may be wondering why this would be a favorite.  Well, when you build a house, there is dust abundant, EVERYWHERE! Now, that we are nearing the end we have started having some cleaning done.  For all of the drawers and shelves they have used this Tack Cloth (it's a cheesecloth with a tacky substance in it).  There's nothing better for getting the fine, fine particles out of drawers and off of shelves.  It can be found with the paint supplies in big box stores or at auto parts stores.  So, if you ever need to do this kind of cleaning, get these!  They are a one time use, once the tacky is gone they are of no use.

Now, you go and have yourself a wonderful weekend!!!!!

  1. Happy Friday, Lea! I too love going to the salon and having my hair done. It's always quality "me time." I have an appointment on the 11th and I'm already looking forward to it! I do not have an Origami piece, but I do have two Pandora bracelets that I love to fill up with charms for special occassions. The last two I received were for Mother's Day this year: a pineapple and a plumeria to remember our Hawaiian Cruise in April for our 20th wedding anniversary. Enjoy your weekend! "Felicia" and I will be busy, busy with entertaining!

  3. I love the Dollar Tree. I often go to my local store. I too have my highlights done. I get low lights and high lights. I don't need to go as often but I love how it always gives my hair more body after it's done. And thanks for the tip on tack cloth. I've never heard of it but I wrote it down. There's always dust in our condo. I think living in the desert is part of the problem but I'll try anything. Have a wonderful weekend. It's always nice to see your smiling face.

  5. I LOVE the dollar tree...though I haven't been there in a while. We have a few of those serving bowls for just the purposes you described. Yes, what we do to keep these heads looking presentable, lol. I push my hair to 5 weeks though or even a six here and there, lol Though trust me, 4 is best! How grateful I am that my niece does my hair and charges me "the family rate" or I'd be broke keeping the grey out of this hair, lol. The tack cloth sounds like a great idea! Hope your week-end is a good one!
