One of my pet peeves is grocery plastic bags not properly fitting over the lip of a trashcan. Mxyplyzyk is selling the delightfully modern clothespin trashcan for the OCD treehugger in us all. They also have a great recycled paper bulletin board that notes can be wedged in as well as tradition push-pins.

I’m delighted to be given the opportunity to help spread the word about Yellow Goat, the work of Petula, a hard-working talented artist. Her designs are fresh and whimsical while retaining a modern, sophisticated feel.
**Remember there are plenty more pictures after the jump!
Next on my purchase list:
Her “I’m Priceless” barcode necklace ($33 USD & $4.50 s&h). The barcode is hand-drawn and the letters are hand-stamped into sterling silver on an 18″ sterling chain.
I’m looking forward to volunteering again through HandsOn New Orleans tomorrow (Saturday 6/20) for the Mid-City Community Garden. I volunteered on March 21st as the project coordinator and had an absolute blast. Brock (Joe Brock) who started the garden on his back porch has expanded into an abandoned parking lot which with the help of volunteers was cleared and the space has been donated for gardening.
The garden is sustained through Brock’s efforts, as well as through membership to the garden and farmer’s markets around the city. Brock learned to garden from his father and his goal with the MCCG is to teach others how to garden so they can start eating fresh and organic themselves.
It’s going to be hot tomorrow with a forecast of 95 degrees!

Undoubtedly ripped from it’s predecessors name, Ryobi’s Corner Cat fully meets the same standards as the Black&Decker Mouse Sander.
I’m constantly building, painting, cutting, or sanding something, and as a student I appreciate a great deal!
Product Review: 5 of 5 Stars
Sometimes you run out of paint. Sometimes you lose the receipt. Sometimes you just can’t find the swatch.
By writing the name of your wall paint color and taping it to the interior of the switch plate on that wall. By adding that little step in while you’re painting it saves you ever having to look for the paint color name elsewhere. I don’t know about you, but anything that saves me even the TINIEST bit of stress goes straight to the “YES!” list. Why ever chance a wrinkle when it’s preventable? You can thank me later!
