Every Day With Rachael Ray: Two Takes on Nashville

Out of the department of "shameless self-promotion" comes this little gem: my article in the June/July issue of Every Day With Rachael Ray!

I interviewed country singers Trisha Yearwood and Justin Townes Earle to get their best picks of where you should go, what you should do, and of course, where you should eat. 


[GIFTED] Barbara Carafe

In a perfect world, we would serve all of our drinks out of beautiful handmade glass carafes rather than pouring it out of a two-liter bottle like Cletus the Slack-Jawed Yokel on The Simpsons.  

You can add a touch of glass to everyone's lives with the Barbara Carafe ($79, Switch Modern), which includes a colored orb that serves as a bottle stopper and a thing that you can pop into the carafe for a touch of color.         


Brooklyn Flea Spree

Yesterday, Erica of F'd in Park Slope and I headed down to the Brooklyn Flea Market to participate in the Brooklyn Flea Spree, hosted by The Hip Girl's Guide to Homemaking.

We were one of five teams of bloggers given $25 and let loose in the market to pick up the best home goods possible.

We picked up some sweet glasses from the 1960's, a spiral napkin holder, and letters that spell out our favorite ethnic greeting. 

The other bloggers did a great job at picking out other items, but you should probably forget about all of that and go vote for us

All votes have to be in by Monday, May 9 and midnight, so get over there.  FAST.


[GIFTED] Ace Bottle Opener 

You probably stopped carrying around a bottle opener a few years after you graduated from college, but that doesn't mean you can't pick up this bottle opener ($20, Kikkerland) for your immature friend or your little brother who's graduating high school. 

Bonus: it's slim enough to fit in your wallet, if you're a guy or a lesbian. 


[GIFTED] Banana Boys Bottle Stoppers

One day, your friend who may or may not be an alcoholic will become a fully-functioning adult that will not finish an entire bottle of wine in one sitting.  When that happens, she'll need a wine stopper. 

This Banana Boys Set ($38, Switch Modern) is one of the better ones. 

Get on it.  The wino's waiting.
