I attended a way fun holiday party last night with an unusual twist:
The hosts used only napkins, cups and plates that could be placed directly into the compost – very smart, very green.
Unfortunately, paper products of that ilk aren’t green…or any color, for that matter. Composting means they can’t contain dyes. So the party ware was of the decidedly winter white variety.
It was worth it.
But if you prefer color in your paper products, get a load of these! Toilet paper, paper towels, napkins and tissues by Renova in the brightest of the brights!
I love these vibrant, saturated tones. The toilet paper pictured here is made of 100% virgin pulp, is very soft and absorbent, and is tested under “dermatological and gynaecological control.”
Ya gotta admit, it looks pretty cool. And it’s also available in black, green, orange, and purple.
White Christmas? Not necessarily. (Can’t wait to see Nana’s face…)

Oh, what a difference a day makes!
Was it just yesterday I was waxing nostalgic about the unexpected White Christmas in Kentucky?
Today I’m checking The Weather Channel and airline websites for updates on the blizzard that is predicted to dump up to 16 inches of snow on New York City today and Monday.
Well…that should make the trip home more interesting.
So as my warm feelings toward the white stuff turn increasingly frigid, I find particular giggles and grins in this video of a snowman getting a bit of a jolt (probably from a bitter traveler who was stuck in an airport for a few days due to weather-related delays).
Enjoy…and safe travels everybody!

Merry Christmas from The Sticky Egg!
The Egg is spending the holidays back home in Kentucky with family, and folks are enjoying a rare White Christmas! Rory Dog and I were romping about in the snow early this morning.
Good times with the puppy dog in the cute coat.
It reminded me of a freak snow that hit my home town during my junior year of high school. We had been back in classes only one day after Christmas break. It snowed enough to cancel school the next, which in the South — where they aren’t equipped for that kind of weather – is about an inch.
It continued to snow a little more each day…and they continued to cancel classes.
We finally returned to school in mid-February. It was easily the best winter of my life.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Sure, but you must have spent the summer in school, sweating in the heat back in those days before air-conditioned class rooms.
As it turns out, no.
That period of intense snow and ice was declared ‘disaster days’ in the state of Kentucky, which meant the local school systems didn’t have to make up the missed days.
Christmas came twice that year.
