So I made a basket of “my favorite things” to donate to Mandy’s Water Raffle.

She is rocking it over there with some really cool things.

Description of my basket below. 🙂



Some books from my Favorite Authors. (New copies of these 4 books in basket)

Listening to Your Life: Daily Meditations with Frederick Buechner

Cannot get enough of him. Hang on his every word.

I Thought It Was Just Me (but it isn’t): Making the Journey from “What Will People Think?” to “I Am Enough” by Brene Brown

One of her first books and I think my favorite. Must read for every person on the planet.

Turn My Mourning into Dancing by Henri Nouwen

Nouwen’s voice calms me. And this book gets revisited often.

David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants by Malcolm Gladwell

This one is new for me. But I LOVED this book. Am going back to read everything he has ever written.———

Bookmark Clips.  You can read all these books at the same time with these….

My favorite Burts Bees chapstick.  How anyone lives without this, I do not know.

Ice Chips. These are my new fascination too. They are supposed to be good for your teeth. And they have no sugar. But they are really good. And really fun to eat.

Lavender and Lilac Lemonade. Honestly. This just looked really good. I couldn’t justify buying it for myself, but I bought it for you. Let me know how it goes. 🙂

Some treats from my corner of the country. We do chocolate and coffee well. Seattle Chocolate bar and Chehalis Mints.

And if you come to Olympia, and I’ll take you to coffee.

————–My travel must haves:

Ginger chews. These babies have saved the day so many times for me when motion sickness starts to take over in an airplane or the back of a jeep somewhere…

Colgate Wisps. You guys. The best. In my purse. In my car. Always. They will change your life.

Green Tea Mints.  2 mints are equal to a cup of green tea. That’s supposed to be good for us, right? But really, they just taste good so I like them.


So you need to donate on Mandy’s Water page and then leave a comment on her blog for which items you are bidding on.All the details over there. 🙂
