Here's a cool idea, literally. It's an ice cube tray with a cover on it to help prevent your ice cubes from shrinkage until you're ready to use them. Why didn't somebody think of this before?
I thought this set of four miniature salt and pepper shakers would be perfect for picnic season. They're plastic with a rubber cork that's as wide as the base so they're easy to clean and fill. They come in a variety of colors, too.
I rarely buy jewelry at the dollar store, but liked these wooden bead bracelets. You get two different bracelets for $1 and they are, in my opinion, really nice looking pieces. Hey, for a buck, how can you go wrong?
