It’s Shamrock time! Spring is near and so is St. Paddy’s Day.

11 Mar

I love my Shamrocks. I have the purple variety. From a small bunch from Trader Joe’s a few years ago, they now fill two pots, and another repotting is needed soon. I love how they go to sleep every night and stretch their petals full every morning.

Here it is again: Your yearly chance to invite a wee Shamrock plant to call your house its home.

Hello, moon. Good night, Shamrocks.

Classics: Sinatra, Brautigan and Cheddar Rocket Crackers

5 Mar

Song of the day: “Fly Me to the Moon” sung by Frank Sinatra.

Book of the day: Trout Fishing in America by Richard Brautigan.

Snack of the day: Cheddar Rocket Crackers from Trader Joe’s

It's a goldfish meet retro design situation.

It’s a goldfish-meets-retro-design moment.

Once again, Trader Joe’s gives us two treats in one box – the cute, retro look of a rocket with the delicious baked taste of tiny cheddar crackers. In my discriminating, goldfish-loving house, the box of crackers was an instant hit.

Thank you, Trader Joe’s.

And thank you for visiting Things I Love at Trader Joe’s!
