I’ve had my eye on this Shiitake kitchen towel from Crate&Barrel for a while now. It’s so unbelievably cute!
It’s on sale right now for $3.95 but the shipping is $4.95, which makes it a rather expensive towel, at least in my world. Unfortunately, the closest Crate&Barrel store is over an hour away, so I can’t just run out and pick one up. Last weekend my friend and I had the chance to go shopping, though, and I finally snagged one.
I love it! That is $4.00 worth of happy hanging right there. The website says “quantities are limited” so if you want one, better get it soon. J asked me if he was allowed to use it or if it was just for ‘show’. I told him he could use it because it’s silly to buy dish towels that can’t be used but secretly I didn’t want him to use it. I actually want to sleep with it under my pillow and keep it close to me at all times. However, in an effort to appear normal, I’ve been using it to dry dishes.
Also, our friend JZ gave us this really cool vintage marble chess set. He loves mid-century, too, and had this sitting in his house. He decided it would look better in our house and surprised us with it one day.
It’s really nice and does, in fact, look great in our house. Thanks, JZ! You can visit it anytime you want!
So what about you? Did you recently procure any little things that make you happy?
