I came across the collection, Daisy Place by Kate Spade, earlier today and wanted to share. There are some cute items for the home such as a business card holder with "Let's Talk Shop" written on it and a tray for your eyeglasses and keys. They would also make great gifts! I first noticed them at The Organizing Store, but you can also buy them at Kate Spade. The items are well priced which is always a plus!
Went to Stowe Mountain with a few friends this past weekend which was fun. I keep my ski gear together in this bag so when I go skiing I can just grab it and go. It has all the under layers I need plus the hat, gloves etc so I always know I'll be prepared! I keep it in our storage space when I'm not using it and make sure to leave it a little unzipped so air gets in.
I am on a shopping hiatus right now, but have been very tempted to cave and buy the small weekender bag and the cosmetic case from Kate Spade Saturday. I would love to design my own weekender bag and think it adds a nice personal touch to a very useful bag. Both the weekender and cosmetic case have bottom compartments which are great for shoes (weekender) or makeup brushes/bobby pins etc (cosmetic case). The bag also has some useful interior pockets-including a removable cell phone pocket, double straps and a removable adjustable shoulder strap giving it some great versatility!
I saw this Ludlow Trunk Side table when I was in Pottery Barn the other day and love it. I wish I needed it right now because it serves a dual purpose, storage and a side table, and looks great. I would put coasters, maybe some lightbulbs, candles and other miscellaneous items inside so they are out of sight when I don't need them, but handy when I do need them!
