Bunches of things tossed into a bowl or loaded into a jar make me happy.
If items are stowed away where I can't see them,
then I might forget about them.
Then they would be sad. Or stale. Or expired.
If they are tucked into a cute container,
then I can appreciate them everyday,
or put them to good use.

One of the most important utensils in my life....pie servers!
Napkin rings that I've never used, but I like the way they look.
Mints by the back door, in case I need to freshen up on the run.
When I get home from the grocery store,
I like to display my goods in pretty containers throughout the kitchen.
A particularly fabulous green melamine bowl from a dear friend:)
Bathroom staples are kept handy....bath salts, even though I've discovered that
