Transport Lunch in a Cube

I have used these cubes for a few years now and love them! I send one out the door a few times each week with one or another daughter for the school lunch hour. I find ours at The Container Store. What I love about the lunch cube is that a full size sandwich fits on the bottom and then on top, chips, cut up fruit (or small fruit; one prob I have with the system is that an apple does not fit into the cube :)) or another smallish foods. These lunch cubes are BPA-free, made from polypropylene and have an airtight rubberized silicone seal that keeps your sandwich fresh :). Enjoy!

Something too wonderful...

{Photo: Katie Goodman}

These pumpkin cinnamon rolls look too good to eat. What does that mean anyway? I mean if something looks good, we eat it over here. Nothing ever looks TOO good.

I found these over at stephmodo, one of my daily stop blogs. She led me over to another NEW fave, Katie Goodman's Good Life Eats. Good Life Eats is where the pumpkin cinnamon rolls shown above got their start. Now if the weather would change just a wee bit in Texas, I might be ready to get a can of pumpkin and get started!

Brighten up your bulletin board with these exciting orange pushpins handmade with glass by IcedMoments! Made using lampwork beading techniques, these little accessories are created lovingly and carefully. They can make any old cork board cute and add character to your display!

These cheerful glass push pins will really brighten up your cork board. Each push pin is made lovingly by hand and each one is truly unique. You will receive the nine pins shown in the photos, in a gift box. These pins are made using traditional lampwork beadmaking techniques. Start with an ordinary plastic-headed push pin. After removing the plastic head (bash it with a hammer!) the glass is directly melted on to the resulting pin shaft. The glass is shaped and decorated on the glass head using modified lampworking techniques. These are very eye-catching push pins. Think of them as jewelry for your cork board.

This is just great for back to school! (And the back of this little boy's head reminds me of my little buddy Thomas, who is now in middle school and certainly outgrown this set up :)!

Kids are more likely to get organized and study longer, even in a busy room, when a cardboard carton is turned into a personal study center. I found this in my inbox today from the creative team at Martha Stewart!
