Saturday Night Question: Towels - When to toss?

I was thinking of trying to do a regular Saturday night post since we're now old, don't have plans like we used to on Saturday nights, and usually at home. Plus, we find it hard to keep our eyes open past 10pm. So to add to our busy schedule, I thought maybe there are others home surfing the blogs when the kiddies are in bed? and if so.....I'd REALLY like to hear your thoughts on this pressing question:

Towel there some secret trick to getting our towels to smell better? Don't have problems washing clothes, but do you ever wash towels, throw in the dryer with a dryer-sheet....only to get out of the shower to find the towel STINKS?? Does anyone have a secret on keeping towels smelling fresh? OR....when do I actually throw in the towel????

In July I won a fantastic little purple bird rattle through the Live Love Yarn blog when Rose featured the artist Leah KL from Australia. Leahkl on Etsy is a vintage chenille shop and she makes the most adorable little animals, dolls, and fruit and veggie rattles. It is a delayed THANK YOU for the adorable bird giveaway! Here are some of my other favorites...

HAIR: Back on Broadway

Saw the movie I don't know how many years ago and then the musical while in London in 1992. Bought the soundtrack and absolutely think it is a Desert Island Disc. My friend Jackie and I are planning a Tuesday night trip to the show - but we have to actually get the tickets. Maybe next Tuesday from the Seaport window? Regardless, Jackie this is for is the song I will hit 'repeat' 4-5x and loudly play!!! How can you not love Treat Williams??

Burger King and SpongeBob.....

I saw this Burger King commercial and cracked up - I thought it was brillant. Hubby didn't know the song, but I remembered Sir Mix-A-Lot. I found it on U-Tube, but also the full length version. Here are both - "I like square butts and I cannot lie......." Classic.

The 30-second commercial....On second thought, I'm just going to try this one to see if it works. I hope so - SPECIAL THANKS to Rose and Rambler...couldn't have gotten it to work without your advice....thanks ladies!! :-)

Glass Bead Earrings.....

I made a few earrings because I saw these green glass beads and couldn't live without them. I posted to the shop and within 24 hours, they sold. That was back in the winter. Imagine my surprise when in July, the woman who bought loved them so much she asked if I could make the same style in other colors. She wanted blues, but bought all three. Made my day!
