Stopped in my tracks

This morning, I was reading through a few blogs trying to gather some momentum to start my day. The last couple of days have been a hazy mix of fighting off D’s sickness from last week, along with some really irritating work commitments. Last night I got to sit through a city council meeting where people argued for an hour and a half about noise restrictions from boaters (with a focus on rap music – damn kids), only to find out that the ordinance was a draft that council hadn’t even read yet and therefore the whole issue was tabled. Our agenda item didn’t get called until 10:34 pm and we were done by 10:45. So needless to say I was in search of some inspiration to get moving this morning.

There was sun streaming through the windows, and then I stumbled upon a Macy’s product roundup at Once Wed (see! there is more to be gained from wedding blogs than just wedding inspiration!). I literally stopped in my tracks when I spotted these UBER CUTE retro storage canisters from the new Martha line over there. I’m going to rush home tonight and do some measurements to see if we have a spot to display a couple of these sweet things because they are just too awesome to pass up (and the price is right, too!)

I think they’d also make a nice hostess/housewarming gift with some freshly baked cookies, a pound of locally roasted coffee, or some almond flour for your gluten free friends.


In the words of Rachel Maddow, whats your new “best thing in the world today?”

  1. Was this for Kirkland? I didn’t know you were a city counsel kinda gal 😉 Those are cute, I love Martha’s line. Everything she does is amazing. Even prison 😉

    1. oh I am SO NOT a city council kind of girl, but one of my architecture projects was up for approval and I had to be there to answer questions. The whole experience was godawful except that our item got approved.
