Some Things That I Love Right Now

Sometimes I just have to blog about cute little things that I love.  Thank you to A Beach Cottage and Lollipops for the encouragement to do so.  

First, I like little pitchers.  I used to collect creamer pitchers from restaurants when I was in elementary school.  I was way ahead of my time.  Way.  This one I bought.  For $4 from World Market.  I saw it when I was there with a friend, and thought about her for days until I had to go back and get it.  She has some little ones still at the store for $2, and I think she might be missing them.  Dare I go for more?

Second, I like fresh mint.  Especially when I find it at a small farmers' market two blocks from my house.  I never thought I'd see the day when my hood got a farmers' market. 
Movin' On Up.

Third, I love John's iced green tea.  Perfect for summer:

Boil 6 cups water.  Remove from heat.
Add 6 green tea bags.  Let sit for 5 minutes.
Pour in pitcher with a couple of spoons of sugar.
Add fresh mint if you're down with that.

And there is a little afternoon treat that is basically calorie free.  A little tip: it feels quite fancy to drink this and sometimes it feels good to be fancy.  It doesn't take much.


  1. Beautiful shots! So unique and fresh! Love it:)
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  2. I agree! Sometimes it's so nice to feel "fancy"!

  3. Lovely pitcher and there is always a place for more little ones :) Thanks for stopping by Beach Cottage Good Life Wednesdays and sharing.
