Exhibit A: A new cleaning lady left me a surprise. I wish I would of taken a photo of the original because she had taped it with a neck brace (I guess hoping I wouldn't notice?). Instead of being mad, I found it incredibly funny and it gave me a chance to get all crafty.
Exhibit B: I bought a punch bowl. I don't even have a mixer and have never made punch, but apparently I rationalized the purchase of a punch bowl, complete with cups. I had my mixology lesson with the fabulous Benjamin Newby and we created a beautiful celebration punch for my girls night.
That mixture would be a whole bottle of vodka that we infused with strawberries, lemons, limes, oranges, and ginger overnight. The next step was to strain the infusion. I got out my tool box and secured that baby with painter's tape. File that move under "crafty".
I ordered the punch bowl on Amazon Prime and it arrived the morning of the party and I quickly unpacked it and washed it out. When it came time to serve the punch, I decided a soup ladle was the best solution. The next morning, I looked at the picture and it didn't look right. Luckily I had the box in my hallway and dug around in the packaging and found a matching ladle to the set. My mind has been wondering what I would of done if I had already thrown out the box? Would I of gone to the dumpster and looked for the box? Would I written it off? Now I need an occasion to make punch again and show off my ladle.
A couple people have asked why I don't post outfits more often.
I waver on both ends of the spectrum. I am either in workout clothes or a little dressed up. The middle is grey area. Flats, jeans, t-shirt? I don't really have that capacity. I also have no idea about trends and I stick to what I know.
Kitchen item you have that you never use? Meat tenderizer, egg poacher
