You know what I have a lot of right now?

Spare time. You know what I don't have a lot of? Ability to drive myself anywhere. Sigh.

Anyway, with PLENTY of spare time it does give me the luxury to go back through my starred items in Google Reader. Which leads me to this post.

A lot of the accessory items in my house have come from Southern Living at Home now called Willow House. One of my favorite all time items is my Flatware Caddy. I use it at all of my parties and showers. I just love it. It even looks pretty on your countertop. As a matter of fact, I got this for my sister-in-law for Christmas.


Willow House actually doesn't carry the above caddy anymore, but it is manufactured by Godinger company. (I got my sister-in-law's at Tuesday Morning.)

However, I am LOVING the new flatware caddy that Willow House is selling in its place. It would go perfectly in my kitchen. But I will refrain. Does one really need two flatware caddies? (Truth be told, the answer may be yes.)


All of this leads me to the starred item I came across. It is the cutest and very wallet friendly flatware caddy featured on eighteen25 and I LOVE it. This would be such a fun hostess gift and it is so economical to do. Assuming you have a cricut or Silhouette. If not, I guess it might be easier to just buy one of the flatware caddies above.


I would love this as a gift. Honestly, I might just make some myself because they are just so darn cute. Get the full directions here. All you need are Glass jars and vinyl. (And a cutting device.) I wish I had thought of this myself.

My mind is spinning at how different those two caddies are. So much, in fact, that I have replied to this about a zillion times explaining the various reasons you will need both caddies. Mexican fiesta= bright colors=clear caddie. Baby shoer=soft baby hues=cream caddie. I mean, I could go on, but I think there is a letter limit on this comment thing.

Thanks for the tip about finding your sister-in-law's Astoria Flatware Caddy at Tuesday Morning. I'll have to look there. I've been dying for one, but they are OUTRAGEOUS on Ebay.

I LOVE it! My sister used to "sell" Southern Living at Home. She actually didn't sell it, she just held parties so she could buy more. It worked out nicely for her...and me. :) I had the first caddy and the jars that match. They are so pretty. I hadn't seen the new caddy. I probably need that. Although my sis got a cricut. so maybe she can help me make the at home example. Those are awesome too. And HOLY MOLEY! I can't believe you/she found that caddy at Tuesday Morning. What a DEAL!!!

We attempted to dig our way out of the driveway today and it was a no go! We are almost out of diet coke, so I'm thinking Chris will be more serious about his shoveling tomorrow! lol!
