these next few weeks i'll be playing favorites. i am scooping out photos from my archives and describing a few of my all-time favorites. classic things i love to love. dan and benji will be assisting me with a few posts of their favorite things too. i'll be including topics from kitchen gadgets to shoes to summer activities to treats. if you want to request a favorite you'd like me to cover, i'd love to hear it. feel free to play along, if you have a tip on the subject, please leave a comment. i'll begin this series with a favorite go-to gift wrap idea. because anyone who knows me knows i love cellophane bags and use them for everything. they just add a touch of voila to my vocabulary of little gifts. these babies make my selections of bulk candy seem not so bulky. maybe even dainty.
