A shopping guide for some of my favorite things, kitchen items, clothing for 50+ women, and personal finds that I love!
Welcome to the 10th anniversary of My Favorite Things, hosted by Melissa from 320 Sycamore. She’s been doing this party for 10 years, and I haven’t participated for a while, so I’m very glad to back! I’ve gathered together as many things as I could think of that I own and love. I also varied the selection and included kitchen items, personal things, clothing, and some decor. So let’s shop!

These are the best slippers. Ever. I bought them last year at T.J. Maxx and literally wore them everyday. A few months ago, I spilled Gorilla glue on them, so I bought a second pair. I don’t think I could live without them now! They run a little big, so if you are a half size, order down. I wear a 9 1/2, and the 9 fits perfectly.
Next is the red and white Sugar Paper twine from Target. I am quite a twine snob, and this is the best I’ve ever found. It’s thick, and ties the most beautiful bows. It also comes in black & white, and gray & white. Last year I only bought one spool and quickly ran out, so this year I bought four!
I discovered these cutting boards and knives last month while I was staying with my son’s in-laws. I loved using them so much that I ordered them for myself before I even got home!
This face mask has more than 18,000 reviews on Amazon and has slightly under a 5 star rating. My daughter-in-law told me about it and after the first time I used it, I was hooked!
Here are some tips: the first time I used it, I felt like it took a long time. With each additional use, I got better at measuring and mixing, and now it’s very quick. Use a small glass or plastic bowl and mix with the face mask brush. The directions say you can mix the powder with water or apple cider vinegar, but I always use ACV. (Which by the way, makes a great toner too. I’ll be sharing all about that after the holidays!) I don’t have sensitive skin, and I leave the mask on for 15 minutes. I love the way it makes my skin feel, and the fine lines around my mouth are getting less noticeable.
The ratio I use is 1 tablespoon powder to 1 tablespoon ACV. Add more of either to get the consistency you want.
I’ve talked in the past about my favorites at J.Jill, and there are quite a few. At the top of the list are the pima ankle leggings. If you have never tried them, you are missing out! Use the code NOVEMBER for 30% off and free shipping!
About a year ago, I completely updated what used to be my daughter’s bedroom, and then my sewing room. The room was a disaster, and a huge project. I hope to share the finished space sometime next year. I adore the chair I bought for the corner. It’s a neutral beige with tiny specks of gray. It’s sturdy and very comfortable. It is, in my opinion, the perfect, reasonably priced side chair. I paired it with another ceramic stool that matches the one in my living room. That way, if I ever want two, I have a matching set. I also included the little milkmaid pitcher from Farmhouse Pottery. It’s something I would never buy myself, but receiving it as a gift was such a treat. Just thought I would share before you start your Christmas list! (Wall color is Sherwin Williams Repose Gray.)

I haven’t talked about these rugs too much, but I am obsessed. We have six, in different colors and patterns, and I love them. We have the beige/ivory in our living room, dining room, and one bedroom. We have two navy patterns in our family room, and a gray rug in a guest bedroom. The patterns all mix and match beautifully. They have worn extremely well, even with a dog. If you have been thinking about new area rugs, I promise you won’t be disappointed.

Now it’s time to send you to the next stop on the tour, my friend Diane, from In My Own Style. Happy shopping!
