Deb asked for another shopping post, so here goes. I think the following items defy description, and furthermore, I am still in the zombieland of new parenthood (again). So I present the following items to you for your own perusal and comments. Please feel free to share your thoughts. Best comment wins a hand-crocheted dishcloth made by moi. (It will be a completely subjective judging process.)
(note: the descriptions accompanying the products are the actual advertising blurbs. I did not make them up.)
