It’s that time of year again.  The time we start looking for Peter Cottontail to start hopping down that bunny trail.

I’m happy to announce some very special bunnies are now available in the All About YOU store.  They are adorable, right?

AAY: Thinking About Mom

Published March 5, 2017 by lynn k scott

I took advantage of the free shipping weekend (orders $35+).  There was a cute pink camo bag I just had to have.  Ok, you twisted my arm…here is the bag I ordered:

This post deals with starting to think about your mom, or a mom you know.  It won’t be long until the special day we celebrate our mom is upon us:  Mother’s Day.  In addition to the cute bag I just order, I am an Army mom after all (have to represent, right?), I ordered this adorable mug for someone to give to their mom.

fb_img_1488726314349.jpgThe website is constantly adding new items all the time.  I just happened to see this mug, while ordering my bag.  I couldn’t resist it.  It’s simple, yet refined and I know my mom would have loved it, if she were still here to give it to.  The mug does come with a gift box, so just adding a card and putting it in a gift bag or wrapping it is all that would be needed.  Great deal for just $7.50.

There are more “mom” mugs on the way.  They are currently being show on the website, however, since they aren’t in stock at the moment, orders can’t be placed just yet.  That’s why it’s important to keep checking back. Of course, I will give you a  preview of what’s to come…Did I mention these mugs will come with a card too?

AAY: Free Shipping Weekend!

Published March 4, 2017 by lynn k scott

It’s time to walk on the wild side, if you dare, with this Zebra print vase filled with goodies.

How cute would this be to order and treat yourself or a friend?  I like having a small assortment of gifts on hand.  We are always be invited to a birthday, wedding, housewarming, etc.  If I pre-buy gifts, when money is tight, I don’t have to worry about getting a gift I can’t afford at the moment.

Zebras don’t tickle your fancy?  Are you more the out of this world adventurer?  Well then, get ready to blast off and you’ll be all set with these bags!

Feel free to browse the website for these adorable items and so much more!

He Already Knows

Published December 1, 2015 by lynn k scott

It’s that time of year; if you celebrate Christmas with the exchanging of gifts.  While my daughter is maturing all-too-fast, my soon-to-be 10 year old, is presenting new challenges daily.

Yesterday, I asked what she would like for Christmas.  While I don’t go broke making sure Christmas morning looks like a department store exploded under the tree, I do get her a modest amount of gifts; mostly from Santa.

While she has questioned the reality of Santa, she somewhat still believes. However, ask that child to take a pic with old man from the North Pole, while window shopping at the mall and she simply responds, “That’s not the real Santa.”  Sheesh!  Why not kill every opportunity for your dear old mom to have photos of you as a child.  Oh your teen years are going to be fun.  Alas, I digress.

Back to what to buy for Christmas.  I asked her again yesterday and received a new and more challenging response.  Instead of the standard, “I don’t know”, she said, “Santa already knows.  I mean, if he knows if I’ve been naughty or nice, then he knows what I want for Christmas.  Why should I make a list?”

Think Mom!  She has to give me an indication and she has to do it on her own.  Have I mentioned how fun she’ll be in a few years?   Moving on…

“Well, what will your father and I know what to buy you if you don’t give US some ideas?”  Phew…she hadn’t thought about that.  She mentions she’d like more art supplies.  Well sugar!  I already have started that gift.  I’ll keep working on her and pulling gift suggestions out of her like a dentist pulls out a stubborn molar.

While I cherish my daughter’s youth and wanting to keep some elements of her being my little girl, it will be much easier not to be Santa in the upcoming years.

So what do your little ones want for Christmas???

 

My Culinary Obsession

Published July 26, 2015 by lynn k scott

I have a culinary obsession.   I have to place blame with my old neighbor for starting it.   He was moving and had a garage sale.   Seems harmless,  right?

Little did I know,  the three pieces of bakeware I bought for $20, included two Le Creuset pieces.

If you are unfamiliar with these multicolor pieces, they are quality non-porous stoneware,  glazed interior (for easy clean-up), heavy and can give some “sticker shock” when they check the price tag.

I currently only afford to add to my Le Creuset collection by saving a little and taking advantage of clearance sales.

Yesterday,  while perusing Sur La Table, I came across a very nice selection of Le Creuset and most of it was on clearance.   Sadly, much of it was out of my price range even with it discounted.

I found a piece, that had been marked down twice and was 40% off.  I made a comment to hubby about how our anniversary was just a couple weeks away. 

After walking through the store, we stopped back to look at the cookware again.  I was gifted a new piece for my collection.

This 12.5″, 3.5 quart dish has a new home!  It can go in the oven, broiler, grill, freezer and microwave and dishwasher. 

I am moving away from cooking in metal pans and using glass or stoneware or ceramic.  I cook quite extensively, so the expense is justifiable to me; even if I use birthdays, anniversaries and Christmas presents to obtain them.

If you are a closet chef, kitchen guru or need a really nice wedding present, I highly suggest purchasing Le Creuset pieces.  They have everything you need to transform a kitchen.
