Wednesday's Word


A fabric with an intricately woven pattern.

Also called Jacquard weave. A fabric in which the design is incorporated into the weave instead of being printed or dyed on. This is one of my favorite patterns.

Here are a few pretty examples.

Tuesday's Tip: Don't throw away that receipt!

How many times do you either not ask for a receipt or just throw it away without looking at it? Well, if you love Dunkin Donuts like I do, then you'll want to hold on to that receipt! At the bottom of every receipt, you can get a FREE donut by simply listening to a short survey (automated) about your visit. At the end of the survey, they'll give you a code to put on the receipt and your next donut is free!! I can't remember the last time I paid for a donut!! So, the next time you buy something at the drive-thru be sure to look at your receipt.. you'll never know what you're missing!

Tuesday's Tricks of the Trade

Are you like me and feel like no matter how much you arrange and rearrange, there never seems to be enough room? (especially for all my magazines!) One quick and easy way to help with this is to add baskets.

Big rustic baskets add a handmade quality to a room while providing that extra storage. You can fill them with pillows, wood, books, blankets and yes, even all those magazines you just can't bear to part with!! You can find inexpensive ones at your local TJ Maxx, Marshall's, etc.

Here are a couple from Pottery Barn. Hope you make it a Terrific Tuesday!!
