My friend’s elopement was a sweet success (yes, I cried during the ceremony), and we all had alot of fun. Most comedic moment? Someone’s cell phone went off during the ceremony!! (You would think something like that would “ruin” the moment, but, if anything, it lightened the mood. We all laughed and joked about it all night long.)
My honey and I also managed to get the happy couple a carafe and wine holder from Crate & Barrel, and our friends loved it!
But now, the Burlesque Baker is on the run! I ended my day yesterday at 9 pm, and I hadn’t stopped all day–cleaning, laundry, gym, market, etc. I am a little behind because of all this wedding/elopement fun (up til 1 am for the wedding!), and now I am trying to run all my weekly errands. Plus, I now have a new writing due date for this Friday….and I haven’t started! Bah!
In other news, I just bought two inexpensive, modern vintage-esque canisters (for flour and sugar) from Macy’s Martha Stewart home line. They were $15 each!
I like Martha Stewart’ home goods. They are always stylish and (usually functional) with an inexpensive price tag. Plus, who doesn’t love such a successful female entrepreneur? Even after a brief prison stint, Martha’s empire is thriving: home goods, books, magazines. She even showcased on her television show some figurines she made in prison. This woman has quite the hustle.
the Review of her Color Gear canisters:
Pros: Cute, inexpensive, just the right size (will fit a bag of flour or a bag of sugar)
Cons: These are tin canisters, which means they dent and scratch somewhat easily (a little annoying). I had to search through the canisters to find some that weren’t dented or scratched! However, if you’re somewhat careful, that shouldn’t be a problem.
If you’re interested in purchasing these, I’d go now! There were only 2 “Flour” canisters left, for example, at my local Macy’s. I also can’t seem to find them for purchase online! Store-only purchase, then?
Okay, have to run, but I will be back on soon! Hope you all have a great day!
