The Perfect Christmas Gift....

....for Me!

If you are looking for the perfect Christmas gift for me, I know just the thing.  You see, I've been doing this blog for awhile now, and having a good time at it, but I would love to know if anyone ever reads it (other than my loyal readers ~ my daughter, mom, sister and niece!).  So if you are a regular, or even just a sometime reader, please leave a comment.  It's not hard to do, just click on the "comments" link below. And, if by chance, you have tried something I've written about, I would love to know about it!  Just when you thought your Christmas shopping was done, I'm adding one more thing to your list.  But the good news is the price is right and the shipping and handling is free!
Thanks and Merry Christmas!

Sweatshirt Ease...Jacket Polish

This French Terry Jacket with Ruffle Trim from the Nine West Vintage America Collection offers the best of both worlds...sweatshirt ease, but jacket polish.  The soft fabric (in black or charcoal gray) is 95% cotton, 5% spandex.  The jacket has a gathered back with ribbing "belt" and the sleeve is trimmed with a bit of canvas and a metallic button for a bit of extra detail.  I think this will be a great addition to my wardrobe as you can dress it up or down, and stretch it through several seasons.  I found it at Macy's - regular price was $69 but I had a coupon, of course!

Perfect Swiss Design

It doesn't look like much, but this Zyliss Silicone Stir Fry Spatula is tops in design and function.  A tapered edge on the spatula gets under foods quickly and easily.  The angled silicone head and rigid silicone core make this spatula perfect for vegetables, omelets, sauces and more.  The high grade silicone is heat resistant to 600 degrees F.  The bright red color (or orange or lime green) makes it easy to find in the drawer and basically it just feels good in your hand.  It's about $8 at specialty kitchen stores or on-line.  Trust me, you will reach for this over and over again.
