Won a lottery!

I won some unpaper towels from Joli's Art on Hyena Cart. Yeah! I can't wait to try them out.
We recently decided to switch to cloth from paper towels (no more trees cut down for our kitchen counters, thank you), so three 'Burley knit terry towels' will be a welcome addition. We designated a drawer in the kitchen for various wash cloths, hand towels, newborn prefolds and bibs. So far, we've done pretty well, just using cloth to clean what would have previously involved paper towels.
One spill we haven't found a replacement for is broken glass. My recent rash of buttery fingers combined with tile floor has thwarted our non-paper pursuits. Perhaps some rugs in the right places... I'm off to find a lottery on woven rugs.

  1. I'm finally getting around to saying thanks for the suggestion about my little boy's hands. He is eczema prone on his hands, but hadn't had a breakout in a while. I did a little more research and found out that, esp. in children, fever blisters on hands aren't uncommon. Finally, they healed after about a week (looked terrible in the meantime) and now are "pink skin". But, I will keep that in mind about the blisters, as half of my kids have battled all kinds of eczema issues.
