Things That Followed Me Home...
Quite a few items have made their way to Our New Vista in the last month. I have been upgrading some of my cookware and am thrilled with the Blue Diamond pans I found.
I brought it home and made scrambled eggs and NOTHING STUCK. You really don't even need any butter or other substance...I used a little Smart Balance, but it was not necessary. You are advised to NOT use any cooking spray. This pan is completely toxin gree, and has no PFOA, lead of cadmium. It is dishwasher, oven , broiler, and metal utensil safe. The pan cleaned up so easily that I never put it in the dishwasher...and I used a wooden spoon or silicone spatula. So, I was on a quest to find some others. I did not want to buy the entire set as my saucepans are still fine.
I don't use matches any longer and was tired of buying those disposable lighter wands. This works great for candles and it is rechargeable!
Last week I got together for Friendsgiving with my college friends. We met for lunch and shopping - and we usually exchanged gifts. Chatting early in the month, we decided to NOT give each other gifts. We are so blessed in our lives and we have everything we need. A decision was made to give to a charity of our choice - and then we shared the charity we chose. And...even though we said we don't need anything, we did manage to do a little shopping at the Tanger Outlets in Hershey, PA.
I found some great jewelry - first at Talbots.
I picked up a simply tee shirt and was waiting to check out when I spied these cute earrings. I did not need them...but they were so sparkly and looked so good for the holidays that they ended up in my bag! In my defense, they were on sale and I had a 20% off coupon!
Also found some deals at the Loft Outlet
Wandering around the store I spied these necklaces on the 50% off rack. I loved the navy/teal one and knew I had a pair of teal slacks and a navy sweater that would work great with that one. I loved the delicate look of the other...
These were the price tags....but when I got to the check out I was told they had been marked down even more...and the price for each was
We had a party to attend over the weekend and I wore the teal pants, navy sweater, and that necklace - and got tons of compliments!
