DII Cotton Adjustable Check Plaid Chef Apron

DII Cotton Adjustable Check Plaid Chef Apron 

 

I love wearing an apron when I cook or clean, and I am so happy to see that they have made a come-back after so many years of being "out of style" or only for Granny's. And I love this adjustable check plaid chef apron from DII (you know how I am with DII!) If it's DII, it's quality stuff!

 

I love the large pocket which gives you a place to put things as you clean, or cook. I am forever removing jewelry and sticking it in whatever bowl or dish is lying about if I don't have pockets. Then forgetting to put it back on because it's not on me! 

 

The neck band is fully adjustable so you can get the perfect fit for you. And the waist ties are extra long for either wrapping around your waist, or making it fit well for larger people. (Well, some of us have a bigger than usual waist. Don't laugh! Even big girls like nice aprons!)

 

You can purchase this apron here, for $11.99. It's a Prime item, so member's get free two day shipping. 

 

I give this apron five stars

and a big thumbs up.

Sterling Silver All-Around Pave Cubic Zirconia Ring (1.4 cttw)

Sterling Silver All-Around Pave Cubic Zirconia Ring 

(1.4 cttw) 

 

This is a lovely ring. Sterling silver, not plated, but real silver, it is clad entirely around the ring in pave cubic zirconia, with a total weight of 1.4ct.

 

This ring is beautiful enough for an engagement, or anniversary ring. It really is! And yet, it retails for only $24. No kidding! It can be purchased here, and comes in sizes 6-8. I placed it next to real diamonds, and you really can't tell that these are not the real deal! Your friends will never know that you're wearing cubic zirconia!

 

I give this ring five stars

and a big thumbs up.

Mae Women's Swing Tank Pajama Set

Mae Women's Swing Tank Pajama Set 

 

I am a pajama kind of girl. I love the fact that after a long, hard day at work, I can come home and slip into my pajamas, and I'm still decently covered should someone drop by unannounced! And these pajamas fit the bill perfectly!

 

Soft cotton (think t-shirt cotton, yes, deliciously soft) allows for freedom of movement and relaxation. I sleep so well in these pajamas! And as far as lounging about goes, hey, aren't these the cutest pajamas for summer wear? (If only I turned my camera on me now! Then you could see, but since I am without hair done, makeup, or how about teeth - yeah, I'm that old! - I wouldn't put you through that! LOL) Use your imagination!

 

I give these pajamas five stars

and a big thumbs up.




You can find these pajamas here, and available in sizes Small to Extra Large. Prices range from $37.80 to $38. And shipping is free for Prime members.

Wickedly Prime Mate` Getaway Mango and Pineapple Herbal Tea


Wickedly Prime Mate` Getaway Mango and Pineapple Tea

I love a good tea. Usually a black or oolong tea. Occasionally along comes a flavor that I can really enjoy, and this Wickedly Prime Mate` Getaway Mango and Pineapple Herbal Tea fits the bill.
A lovely blend of sweet and tart comes through when you brew a cup, or a pot, of this tea. Absolutely delicious hot, I found when warmer weather arrived, it really shines when brewed and served over ice! It is so refreshing! Try serving it with pineapple wedges for a little extra something that really dresses it up for summer serving to guests. It really brings out the pineapple flavor, that is almost hidden when served hot.

The box comes with 15 tea bags, so it makes 15 cups of tea. I used 8 to make a gallon of iced tea for a special occasion. And it was so good!

You can purchase this tea here, for $5.49. It is an exclusive Prime Pantry purchase for Member's only, and is free shipping with purchase of four other Prime Pantry items.

I give this tea five stars,
and a big thumbs up.

DII 100% Jute, Rustic, Vintage Table Runner

DII 100% Jute, Rustic, Vintage Table Runner
Black
15" x 74"

Okay, folks. I'm back with yet another DII table wear item. (You know how I love DII!)
Today we have this lovely, 15 x 74 100% jute table runner. It looks absolutely gorgeous with the DII black and white buffalo plaid tablecloth by the way! Or with the DII 100% cotton black tablecloth. 

It gives your table a rustic, homey look. It's both appealing to the eye and to the senses with it's jute rough touch.

I love the size. My table is 54 x 54 with the leaves left out, and this is perfect for the smaller table. It gives me just enough overhang on the two ends to look really nice. 

I think it's great for everyday use. Or even for an outdoor, intimate get together for a barbecue. 

I haven't tried to launder it yet, so I'm not real sure how well the jute will hold up. I think I would try to handwash and press it dry with towels rather than machine washing, or wringing the water out when handwashing. (If you don't know how to use a towel to press water from hand laundered items, here's a video that will show you how to do this.)


I've used this method for years, and you would be surprised how much water you can press from just about anything hand laundered!

I give this DII jute runner five stars
and a big thumbs up.
You can purchase the runner here, for $10.99, and shipping is free for Prime members.

No Coffee Pot Mesh Bird Feeder


No Coffee Pot Mesh Bird Feeder

 I love all things coffee. You'd never have thought that a few years ago, when coffee drinking was the furthest thing from my mind! I was strictly a tea drinker. Then one day, I woke up kind of sluggish. And I got my get-up-and-go fixed with a cuppa Joe! I've been hooked ever since! So every morning I start my day with coffee.

So, I was thrilled to get this fantastic bird feeder! It is the actual size of an old fashioned stove top percolator. The body is made of a wire mesh that allows birds to peck through for feeding. The wire bail provides a sturdy hanging implement from your choice of sites. Perfect for the front porch, or a tree in the yard. Great for year-round bird watching enjoyment! (I've been taking photographs of birds for years, so this gives me the opportunity to get some shots up close and personal! Love it!)

The generous size means fewer refills. And the fact that it is closed and has to be pecked through to reach feed means a little harder for squirrels, or other critters, to get into! Love that!

Lightweight, and easy to fill, and hang, you purchase the bird feeder here, it retails for $17.95, and Prime members get free shipping.

I give this coffee pot bird feeder five stars...

...and a big thumbs up.
