My Favorite Things

There are many things that I just cannot live without.  Besides my family of course, here are some of my favorites:


I love organizing and galvanized buckets are great for that. We use them to hold toiletries in the bathroom (each child has their own), to hold pens and pencils in the playroom, and in many more places around our home.


I am crazy about how my house smells.  I love fragrances to go with the seasons.  Right now I am loving these candle melt thingies from Walmart.  They go great in my Scentsy candle warmer.  My house smells like Hot Wassail right now.  mmmmmmm!!


  The online postal service at USPS.com is an absolute life saver!!!!  I "click and shipped" all of our gifts to out of town family members for Christmas this year.  Not only did I not have to go wait in the long line at the post office, my postman came to my door and picked everything up.  And it was a few dollars less expensive to do it on-line then in person!  If you haven't tried it and ever have to ship things....try it!  You can even order the priority mail boxes from them for free and they will deliver them to your door.


At any given time I have around 5-6 tubes of chap stick in strategic places around our house, in my purse and in the car.  I can't stand having dry lips. 


Clothespins are my favorite way to clip and display things.  I use them in my office, to display  pictures and for our Christmas cards this year.


My new favorite obsession are vintage silver trays.  I have quite the collection (the more tarnished the better) and display them in a few different rooms in our house.  The round one above is magnetic and I use it to hold photos.



What are some of your favorite things?

  3. Candace, your list is so FUN... the silver trays, the clothespins, the buckets (I have scored multiple from Target dollar aisle!)

    I'm beginning to think I'm the only person on the planet that hasn't used Scentsy.. clearly I'm missing out?

  4. Love those bucket! I too have found them at Target (along with a bunch of other ones--I kind of have an addiction for dollar spot boxes and buckets!) I pinned a pretty pictures with some silver trays but have yet to venture out to find me some. Love your stenciled wall. I did a wall in my front room. Have you tried Carmex's lime flavored chap stick? So yummy! New follower here, I'd love it if you'd like to follow me back.

  7. I love clothespins too, such a cheap and easy way to hang many things, including Christmas cards! Also love the buckets, we have a few of those in our house too, wish Target still had them in their dollar section. Merry Christmas!
