World Market Style

World Market Items for a weekend getaway

I love World Market.  It's one of my favorite stores in the whole wide world.  When I was a kid, I used to force my mom to take me there on the weekends, so I could wander and look around.  Of course, since she first introduced me to the store, it wasn't like there was a whole lot of arm-twisting going on.

What Are You Going To Be When You Grow Up?

Retro red plastic pencil sharpener


What do you want to be when you grow up?  Have you ever asked yourself that question?  I am sure that others have asked you that time and time again.  Among my group of friends, we had this discussion just this week!  Are you doing what you wanted to do? 

This got me thinking.  And you know that just leads to trouble.  When I was little, I wanted to be a firefighter.  Yep.  My reasoning?  They get to slide down poles in the firehouse.  The helping people and running into burning buildings thing never really entered into my mind.  Plus, they had Dalmatians!

Next, I wanted to be a scientist, because I loved math and science.  What kind of scientist?  No idea.  I’m not sure it even mattered to me.

Parlor Games with the Family


Lets play bingo


One of the great joys in our family is Parlor games.  We like board games, card games,  and trivia.  At every family get together, we end up playing for hours on end.  Sometimes I think it’s more to prevent us from fighting and arguing than to inspire family bonding,  But hey, to each their own!

Here are some of our favorite parlor games.

1) Card games.  We’re particularly fond of Gin Rummy and Crazy 8s, but can be convinced to play other games as well.  Personally, I like to play Canasta, but it’s a little difficult to keep track of.

2) Bingo.  This game is easy to play, no matter how many people you have at a gathering or their ages.  For the really little ones, you probably want to match them up with an older team mate.  You can even choose which kind of Bingo you’re playing!
