I've had a few sparks of love this week from a few random objects. I've decided that I may continue this series once a week to share my loves at the moment with readers and hope to spark some love of these items with all of you. While you read this post I will be on an airplane to Arkansas and will be gone for 10 days. I will pick back up on September 2nd with updated posts. Look for photos from my trip because trust me, I will have a TON! :-)
Such a great tool for someone like me that's definitely a lazy cook. Less mess on the stove top for sure and for less mess in the kitchen that means less time I have to spend over the stove. Lazy cook meets Lazy Spoons!
Her voice seems to speak to me for some reason and it's a very unique tone.
Check out this Shake It Out version preformed by the Capitol Children's Choir.
I love that the state of Oregon does their voting by mail. It's been this way since the citizens of Oregon voted for it in 1998 through their general election in November of that year. It is one of the perks of Oregon that I will miss when I move back to the south. Hopefully other states will follow suit in due time.
Can't have a collection of vinyl without The Mamas & The Papas.
Finding that the old, brown, shag carpet on my stairs is important to someone in our house. PITA finds it quite lovely to sleep on. I find it quite repulsing at times.
I love shooting random, off topic photos. I tend to forget that I take them until I look through the photos on my camera and stubble across them once again. It's almost like finding an old box of photos in the attic and reliving those moments all over again. The above photo was taken on a rainy day here in Oregon, near Junction City, Oregon. It's a field of old grave plots, some dating back to the 1800s. The lone tree in the middle seemed to be begging for me to snap the picture. So I am making this photo the Random Photo of the week along with my sparks of love.
Eco-Tip: Toothbrushes are thrown into household trash once a week and about 50 million pounds of plastic toothbrushes tossed in U.S. landfills each year.  for a more eco-friendly option why not try these other options: Smile² (Smile Squared) made from sustainable bamboo, or Preserve Toothbrushes, which takes back the toothbrush to recycle into new toothbrushes once they are used.
