fine china

Wedgwood is an English pottery company that makes some of the finest pieces of kitchen ware and home decor.  Their designs range from simple plain white, to the most ornate details.  Check out their website; they have so many different things, from plates to vases, picture frames to clocks, and everything in between.  I definitely want to own a whole collection of Wedgwood.

frugal finds

You don't always need to go to an expensive furniture or home decor store to find great things.  Elle Decor has their own collection exclusively at Kohl's, and their products offer a glamorous look without breaking the bank.


When we were in New York, we stopped in the BoConcept store in Chelsea.  This is the ultimate destination for modern, urban furniture.  They can be a little pricey, but they definitely sparked a lot of inspiration when I saw what they had in store. 


ELLE DECOR October 2010 Cover
Last week when I was at the drugstore, I picked up a copy of Elle Decor, and I instantly fell in love with it!  It is created by the publishers of Elle magazine, and for me, it is a collection of pure inspiration.

Norpro Professional 9-Inch by 12-Inch Heavy Gauge Cookie Sheet
When baking cookies, or anything that you would use a cookie sheet for, I think the best type of sheet to use is any that is made of light metal (as opposed to typical darker metal).  You can find them on Amazon, but they're also sold pretty much anywhere that bake ware is sold.  Light metal is better because it doesn't retain heat as intensely as dark metal does, which can result in burnt cookies.
