Ho Ho Ho... and a couple of Tra La Las... it's how we shopped the day away in the merry old land of Oz... beautiful blue skies... yummy classic diner breakfast... a great midmorning cuppa spicy pumpkin latte... more than a bit of fancy footwork up one street and down another... a jaunt through the farmer's market... a couple of bundles of boxwood... a snazzy new shoulder bag... total bliss!

Like most of us, I love a great number of things in life... a fairly large quantity seem to fall in the food category... ranking close to the top of these edible affaires de coeur is the humble egg... I traded many a chocolate bunny for dyed eggs early on... and breakfast continues to be my favorite restaurant meal... although now I opt most often for a spinach stuffed egg white omelet with an occasional side of turkey sausage...
I know... I know... toss in a decaf java and I practically have to beat other diners off with my fork to keep them from pillaging from my plate! I do veer off course every now and then and barter with myself... whole eggs (but poached)... thick slices of toast (but without butter)... crispy bacon (but blot the grease and toss the fatty bits)... Who am I kidding? Is a poached yolk THAT much healthier than one that's been lovingly sizzled in a little butter? I don't think so either. And now that we settled that... my weekend is looking a little more interesting...

We bought this... we use this... it's so thick and rich it should be called lip glaze rather than lip gloss... we recommend this... we love this... we love this even more when we remember to apply it AFTER we have taken our daily spoonful of Norwegian cod liver oil... oh, and NEVER on a windy day with long, unfettered hair... (some things in life should be accompanied by more instruction) ...we're just sayin'

I try to consider indies and local artisians first when I shop... the time they invest in their products equals a level of craftsmanship you'll be hard pressed to find elsewhere. Case in point... Etsy ... hold tight to your pocketbooks this place is fabulous!! A new Etsy shop, dishpanhands, is up and running. I purchased a number of her dishcloths before she opened her online shop... they are w.o.n.d.e.r.f.u.l... add some bath goodies and bubbles and you've got some perfect, just in time for the Holidays gifts... because these make fab washcloths as well...
