Sharing Some Favorite Things.

I already have a super-cute bathing suit, but I really love this one from J Crew. The Seaside color is so pretty!

I also really like it in peacock...

If I got the Seaside top, I could probably wear it with bottoms I already have. LOL. It may match... ;-)

And here are my faves at The Container Store right now.

This Daisy print is SO cute. Only this one is available online, but in the store (in our Closet department), we have SO many different sizes. Perfect for scrap storage, I think! ;-)And I bought this file to hold my current month's Studio Calico kits (I'll try to take a pic today). I don't put file folders in mine. I put all my embellishments/alphas in the front slot, my patterned papers in the middle slot, and my cardstock in the last slot. It takes up VERY little room on my workspace, and I can thumb through it as I like without making a big mess on my work space. LOVE it. :-D

Our Brocade line is SUPER cute! It's so shabby chic! LOVE it. :-) I love that this board can be used with both magnets and tacks.

I have TONS of these magnets. I love them for the fridge and in my scrap room to hold up notes, photos and my layouts. They are SO strong, and they're the *perfect* size to stick a glue dot and a chipboard shape if you want to jazz them up! ;-)

And this next item (from the Serenity line), I'll admit, I didn't like from the photos that Corporate sent to us. But when we got them in, I was singing a different tune. They are SO much cuter in real life! And they look *awesome* with our orange Stockholm line. Unfortunately, none are large enough to store 12x12 paper, BUT I have a bunch of the Stockholm boxes (in red, orange and white) all over my scrap room for embellishments and ephemera, and I LOVE them)!

Most of these items are on sale right now for the Work Smart Office Sale, and they will be for the next week (ending on March 28th).

Also! There is a 20% off coupon for The Container Store in the April issue of Real Simple! You can't use it on top of the sale price, but you can use it on anything that's *not* on sale... like elfa. :-)

The Container Store should pay you for advertising for them. Next time I am there I will say you sent me there via your blog advertising. :o) Super cute items on your like list. I basically may just print out your blog posting and hand it to the sales association. :o)

Oooooh those swimsuits are GORGEOUS! Love the colors. And I heart that brocade board. TFS!

I was thinking of printing the blog posts to not as promo --- but as a shopping list, I was thinking I could just hand it to the salesperson and say I need all of this.

I really need one of those standing organizers for when I have more than just the main kit. I usually spread all the table top and it's beginning to drive me insane. Maybe that's what I'll pick up next week when I'm stocking up on more glass storage (I've been buying the round Anchor ones - trying to rid the house of all plastic)...

Oh gosh, you're doing it again - making me want to go shopping! ;-)
