"Junk Drawer Fridays!" No.4


Let the Randomness Begin:

I’d Like a To-Go Box Please:
I am always looking for ways to streamline traveling with my paints.  I use about 15 colors (give or take an impulse color or two:) and the little box shown below turns out to be the perfect fit.  I pack up my colors in a bit of bubble wrap, stick ’em in the bin, pop them into a medium USPS box–and then ship them to wherever I am headed to paint.
Once there, I stand them upright for ease of use during my painting sessions:))
How cute is that??

And at less than $15 bucks, it’s a cheap thrill:))  You can have a look at it in Dreama’s Art Supply Store.

(and yes, Amazon and I are affiliates– which means, if you happen to make a purchase,  I will make a few cents:))

Scoping Things Out:
Somehow, I randomly ended up on the Home Goods site this week doing a style scope of all things.  It’s just the kind of randomness that caused this Friday thing to happen.   It’s a test and it’s free and fast.  Two things we like around here.
And I actually learned something.
Amazing, I know:))))

Now it’s your turn to have fun learning about one of my favorite people
….YOU!  Just click here.

The Half Empty/Half Full Debate:
I think the answer is clear….we have obviously missed the point–it’s not about whether it’s half empty or half full….it’s what you do with it that matters:))

Please, Shea It Isn’t So:
100% organic Shea Butter.  I never knew such a thing existed ’til about a month ago.

My friend Mary gave me some to try.  After letting it “melt” on my fingertips and then smoothing it on my skin….I was hooked:))  The moisturizing ability of the organic pure stuff is amazing, let alone all the other things it can do for the skin.  To read about it’s benefits, click here.
You can get the organic kind like I have by clicking here to contact Mary.  I warned Mary I was going to spread the word to my buddies:)))

And there you have it on this holiday week-end…..what to do with 5 extra hours on a cold February day, the final end to the long debate,  butter that you wear instead of eat, carry-out for your colors and
a test.   Have an awesome week-end you gorgeous thing:))))!

Please Note:  If you think someone else would enjoy this type of ridiculous activity, please feel free to share this post:))

    Dreama, That was a good start to the holiday weekend! I spent an hour on YouTube watching Jeanne Robertson and wondering why I had never heard of her, being that I’m a Southern white lady too. Thanks for introducing me.
    Have a great weekend, Dreama!

    Earthy and modern,
    Jaime Howard

    Jeanne Robertson is one of my favorite comedians- (I’ll be chuckling all afternoon just visualizing this whole scene). Thanks for posting (and who doesn’t love a junk drawer?? we just can’t get rid of it – so we must love that secret stash of odd little goodies!! 🙂ReplyCancel

    I meant that she really can tell a good story. My Engleesh not so good!ReplyCancel

    Hi Dreama,
    That Jeanne is too funny! She really tell a story. Reminds me of how my grandparent’s from Ohio would act if they were asked to “spongee jump”.

    I have a Home Goods store 10 minutes from where I live. My eyes glaze over when I get close, I become mesmerized by shiny, pretty things. Beware! Reasonable prices, It’s a trick a black hole, go back!

    Once I’m in my husband and kids know to “leave her be, she’s in home goods land now.” “We’ll see her again maybe in the afterlife.”ReplyCancel

      Hey Denise! Jeanne’s delivery is priceless:))) Glad you enjoyed her too! And yep, I have experienced the same “out of body” experience at Home Goods;)) That’s where I procured my mirror top table that I use for my palette in the studio:))ReplyCancel
