(salad) spinning.

I’m not sure I can convey to you how very excited I am that Santa Claus brought me a salad spinner. (And a big, pretty one, at that.) I could not wait to get my greens home from the farm today so that I could play with my new toy.

Other new toys? These jar glasses from my mom’s kitchen (because I already drink out of a ball jar), and rainbow mixing bowls. Also, the kind of rolling pin that feels really good in your hands.

(Disregard that dog bone behind my right foot.) I scored two corduroy dresses — this one, and the same in purple — at the online sale at anthropologie. And new boots (thank you, REI dividend)! I promise to display them more prominently soon. I expect that these wardrobe additions will help in my continued quest to “fake it ’til I make it” at all sorts of things.

Despite the worried face, I think Boh is happy to be home in our apartment after a lovely week spent at my parents’ house. He is snoring and twitching (dreaming?) on the couch next to me right now. More soon.

  1. I’ve been eyeing a salad spinner myself for some time now, but first I need to eat more salad… The orange dress looks nice! I can relate to Boh: After 5 days at my parent’s (which were lovely) I was equally happy to come back to my quiet flat. Happy new year!

  2. The dress is so cute! Nice find! And the salad spinner looks awesome…I’ve been thinking about getting one of those lately. I seem to have limited abilities in the department of patting dry just-washed greens. (Wow, that was a weird sentence). Congrats on the fun new stuff!

  3. Yay for fun new toys! The bowls are so cheery and I’ve always loved those jar glasses. Salad spinners are definitely one of the best inventions ever. Also: thanks for passing along the Anthropologie sale! You look lovely!

  4. Good for you on the “loot”! lol Love the rainbow bowls. I’d like to have some of those. Nothing like a salad spinner. I can’t live without mine. Boh is so adorable. He reminds me a bit of my dog but Boh has looser skin. Ha! Wishing you and yours an awesome 2011!
