This always happens to me. I go on vacation, thinking that because I’ll have so much free time, it will be easy to write a bunch of pithy, highly useful blog posts (I’ll admit, there have been times when I imagined that I’d get ahead and write well into the future. Ha!).
But the moment I leave Philadelphia, I enter an alternate universe that consists of lots of sleep, reading trashy/entertaining books and eating more than I should. I’m already passed out by the time my regular evening writing time comes along and the days become so full of fun things like walking on the beach, standing in enormous air ship hangars and hiking to the top of Multnomah Falls (that’s what we’re going to do today).
I did want to share one thing with you guys that I found since I’ve been in Portland. It’s from Sur La Table and I’m totally delighted by. I’ll confess now, when I spotted these little pickle ornaments in a jelly jar, I may have let out a small, high-pitched squeal of excitement.
I grew up with a larger green glass pickle ornament that hung on our Christmas tree every year, but I’d never seen these smaller guys before. And please, the fact that they are packaged in an adorable little jar? How could I not buy them?
If you’re as charmed by them as I am, make sure to get them soon. This is just the sort of thing that will sell out and then you’ll be sad that they’re all gone. And, as Scott shows above, they also make a lovely earring.
