While we're on the topic of Ebelskivers and making food interesting and fun, why not just stay on a slightly altered domestic track and talk about cleaning.
Anyone still with me? HEL-LOOOO!!! Anybody out there?!?
I kid, I kid. But on a serious note, if you're not in the mood for it, cleaning can be a real drag. I remember Saturdays a couple years ago when I would just jump out of bed ready to clean. True Story. My schedule used to be jam packed and, for some reason I could fit so much more in. Now? Not as much - on either account. Sometimes I even have to set small goals for myself in order to stay motivated to keep it tidy. Consider this my cleaning confessional. One day I was talking to a former Roxy executive who mentioned that a former colleague of hers had started this company that created fun cleaning tools. I was like, "Oh yeah they do...what are they? A maid service?" A little sarcasm never hurt anyone.
Enter Alice Supply Co. They had me at striped broom.
Can you imagine?? Fabulous!! Now if I could only fly away on it. (hehe) But it gets better.....
Now you can coordinate!!
Alice Supply Co. was founded by former Fashion executives Maria Barnes and Raili Clasen who took a trip south of the border last year and found themselves swept away - no pun intended - by brightly colored hardware items and cleaning accessories. Later, over margaritas (don't you just love them already?), Alice Supply Co. was born. The company is based out of Chino, California and offers the best and brightest of every humdrum household and gardening item you can imagine.
I first fell in love when I spotted this floor mat:
It was as if the mat called out to me saying, "Carrie your backdoor landing is boring as hell. Will you do something about that already?" Next thing you knew my wallet was out and the mat was sitting next to me in the car en route to its new home.
I am currently awaiting the bucket and garden hose, but they have so many other fun things like toolboxes, gardening tools, and plungers (oh yeah I got one of those too because dealing with the inevitable just ain't right. If you have a significant other you know what this means). It's a big girl world out there ladies. That dust, dirt and other nonsense isn't going anywhere, so we might as well go big and clean in style!!
Let me know what you think. Would you spend a few extra bucks to have some home and garden "accessories" that brought an element of cheer to the tasks? Personally, I'm all for it!
