Sharing something useful…

#2 Tossware

Yikes!  Rooftops in NYC are really windy and it’s not safe to have crystal wineglasses get knocked over or break on the concrete.

Tossware is a brand of reusable, recyclable crystal clear plastic-ware which is elegant for parties where traditional crystal is not a smart idea.

dievca found it very elegant to use, it washes well and stacks/stores easily for the cupboard or storage unit.

Excellent for a NYC apartment building and just as good for the Suburbia Football Saturdays grilling out on the patio.

dievca bought her Tossware on Amazon.

Take a look:

You can even go on to the Tossware site and get pieces made for your event or use their fun graphics:

 

 


Useful items in the City…

…or Elsewhere.

#1 Baggu Nylon Shopping Tote

dievca is on a kick to streamline her closets and hidden spaces. It’s not Maria Kondo: KonMari Method, but it is the “try everything on” (clothing) – “wear everything once to make sure before discarding” (handbags, accessories, shoes) and decide if it is going to useful in 5 years.

dievca has been known to keep something unused for 5+ years and then use it till its falling apart the next 5 years.  “I know why you bought that” is a common statement via dievca’s Mother, dievca’s friends and Master when sorting her stuff.

dievca does not own crap…. so this is an editor’s edit.
Sometimes it takes 5 rounds before something goes, or not.
dievca hates the thought, “I should have kept that _________ (fill in the blank).”

OK, short version.

Weekly, dievca would like to offer pieces that make it through the rounds of editing and have been really useful in NYC. she suspects that they will be useful to others, too.

In no particular order:

dievca has bought these as gifts for New Yorkers, male and female, knowing they fit into a handbag or backpack easily. They are great for shopping, carrying garbage out of a park, collecting papers – anything you need to schlep in the City. The patterns change seasonally and can make a statement.
Yes, Master has some via dievca.

dievca’s Baggu nylon bags are going on 11 years old. she bought her first ones when the company started in 2007. They hold up and wash well.

dievca also has two Baggu leather bags, but that is more a statement on a classic casual handbag shape.
One in brown, one in black.
