    Besides my Valentine and my 365 Days of Slow-Cooking cookbook, I have been loving on a few other fun things this week…

    Star  Fabric.com

    I’ve been trying to finish up my Office Project and I have to tell you how much I LOVE all the fabrics that I got from Fabric.com! They have all the hottest patterns and colors plus great prices. If you haven’t yet, get on their email list because they do lots of awesome sales! {Which is usually when I stock up because I’m, well, cheap thrifty.}

    Here is a fabric that I am drooling over right now!

    One of my favorite store’s is The Ribbon Retreat up in Idaho. Several of my cousins have worked there over the years and what went from a tiny place in a little town has turned into an awesome online business! Have you checked out their website yet? I love that they have fun ribbon and fabrics, but I love them even more for all the Free Tutorials. From baby bows to bubble skirts, The Ribbon Retreat will help you learn to make them all! I love their project tutorials because they are completely step by step and easy to follow, with lots and lots of pictures. {Yeah, I should probably remember that when I am planning my own tutorials.}

    How darling is this little bow tie?

    I’m thinking my nephews need a few!

    Star  My husband gave me a Hydro Flask water bottle last week, and it’s quickly becoming one of my favorites! I am obsessed with it.

    It is a BPA free, stainless steel bottle that is designed with double wall vacuum insulation to keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot. It also has a lifetime warranty and is completely recyclable! But, the thing I loved most is that when you buy a Hydro Flask product, you can go online to www.fivepercentback.org and they will donate 5% of the gross profits to charity! That, my friends, is rad!


    Star  Lastly, I would be completely amiss if I didn’t include my very favorite thing of the week

    Favorite Things {Gypsy Magpie}

    I HAVE 2 ARMS!

    I got my brace off on Monday and for the most part I am feeling good! I still can’t do a ton with it, but at least I can use my right hand! I can’t tell you how wonderful that feels!

    Oh, and last Saturday I became a copper red head just for kicks and giggles…

    Sometimes a girl just needs a little adventure.

    What are you loving on this week?


    **P.S. Just FYI, I don’t get any compensation from these companies, I just love their stuff and thought you’d love them, too!

    These are my opinions and are just for fun.

    AH! I love the ribbon retreat! They have the best best selection of twill anywhere! I searched and searched for Henry’s bedding and found it there! Love it!
