A few cool things

I love to read magazines. I haven't been able to read as much lately (there is a stack of magazines sitting on my counter staring at me....it's kind of unnerving, I think I'll move them...)due to the craziness known as the end-of-the-school-year (and my kids aren't even in school yet!!) but there are a few quick little snippets I wanted to share from what I HAVE been able to read (I think that was the longest sentence ever, please excuse).

1. Did you know you could lease a dairy cow! Yes! You can!!! For $60 a year, RentMotherNature.Com (in Vermont) will let you pick out a cow (or even a goat!) and they will send you progress reports and get this: deliver cheese TO YOUR DOOR. Wow. How cool is that? Super cool.

2. An extremely awesome idea: Wrap any visible electric cords, cables etc. with a ribbon. Not only will you be organizing an ugly mess but you'll also be adding a little flair to the area. (If you have a flat screen TV mounted on your wall but haven't hidden the cords in the wall or some other place like that, this is a perfect idea!)

3. The perfect solution for all the random pot/pan lids that fly at you when you open your pots & pans cupboard (I hope that's not just me...): Attach a towel rack to the inside of your cupboard door and slide the lids in. They will sit there all calm and collected until you're ready for 'em.

They're random bits of information, I know.
But I thought they were pretty useful and fun
and worth sharing =)

Have a great day!!
Thanks so much for reading!


  1. Thanks for the tips Emily! You are like the John Tesh of the blogging world.

  2. great ideas!  I wanted to do the rent a cow thing...and Sophie thought it was too weird  :)

  3. Storing lids is one of the great challenges in this world. That's a great tip.
