Hargreave Carafe with Glass

I certainly enjoy having a sip of water in the middle of the night, especially when you can be sure there isn’t anything you didn’t invite floating around… A bit on the pricey side, but a great design, perfect for a guest room nightstand.

Nesting Bowl Set, (Lotus)

Such a lovely set of bowls…

“This set of 8 lotus flower bowls is a work of art. Each bowl sits perfectly inside the next, graduating in size from 1.5” diameter (perfect for salt and spices) to the largest (an excellent small salad bowl or serving piece for a festive summer fruit salad) measuring 9.5″ in diameter. The bowls stack to a stately 4.5″. The lotus is a meaningful symbol in many cultures and makes a perfect wish for a marriage, birth or other important life changing event. Always in search of practicality – we made sure that the ceramic bowls are microwave and dishwasher safe.”

Frieling Thermal French Press

My ever evolving taste buds now require a stronger cup of Joe, so in my search for the perfect brew, I discovered what all the fuss over french press coffee was about…flavor. My big, clunky coffee maker now has a permanent home deep in a bottom cabinet, while this sleek beauty rests atop my counter taking up precious little space. There are many presses to choose from, but most are glass, which doesn’t keep your coffee hot for very long. This stainless steel press is double-walled for insulation, keeping it hot for hours. With no need for electricity, simple use and superior taste, I highly recommend a change in your morning routine.

Two sizes available:
Small press, 4-cup (20-fl.-oz.) $49.95
Large press, 8-cup (40-fl.-oz.) $64.95
