Friday Five

1. New Insulated Glass for Summer.   $10 At Kirklands.I love Blue and White. This just says Summer to me.




2. New Book .... A prequel to The Hunger Games. How this author can make Coriolanus Snow sympathetic, I am eager to see.




3. New Starbucks Drink....my sis in law told me about this hot drink, A Medicine Ball. It is delicious but would be better in the winter time or if you have a cold.  She says she drinks one every day as it is supposed to be an immune booster.  I still prefer my favorite Pink Drink for Summer. This photo was made in my car...see my hand sanitizer that I keep handy?




4. Newly Dyed Cross Stitch Fabric....I took some time on Saturday to dye some bits and pieces I had as well as one large piece of Evenweave from Hobby Lobby.  Something about dyeing the cheaper fabrics makes them nicer to stitch on. It could be all in my head but that is my story and I am sticking to it.





5. New Book Basket  I got this for $12 at Kirklands. It was on sale the other day when I shopped there. I needed a book basket to place beside my cozy chair. ( Margaret named my bedroom recliner the cozy chair as she likes to sit there when she visits.) My side table was beginning to look like a disaster.  I really like this gray basket with my initial. I am thinking of going back to Kirklands and picking up some Christmas gifts while their sale is ongoing.

Love love the book basket. Darling...just for you. I taught the Hunger Games books when they were popular- not a favorite genre of mind, but the kids went wild over them. Have good weekend.

Let us know if the book is good. I haven't purchased yet. I know I should probably go ahead and get it as all the kids will be reading too.
I love your little basket and cup too.

I love that book basket and it would be handy for so many things. I make coffee drinks at home and love something special, especially cold! I made one yesterday to take to have after a hike. Hugs!

Love your new insulated cup for summer, Arlene! It makes me think of beach/marina/nautical. Love the book basket! While I didn't shop at Kirkland's a lot, I do miss the store that down in Charlottesville. Okay, what is The Medicine Ball from Starbucks? Enjoy your Friday!

I haven't visited Kirkland's since mid-December. Must try to make a visit soon!!

I like blue and white too - nice mug!
I just heard about that book and will have to get it.
I love your book basket! We no longer have a Kirklands near us. I always enjoyed shopping there.

I especially like your basket and how cute that Margaret calls your chair "cozy!" Does she enjoy reading?
