elle (2) Oh my gosh, the weather went from comfortable to totally miserably hot and humid. The sun feels like a broiler.

I don't know why I even put make-up on my face, it just starts to drip off as soon as I go outside (sometimes even before I go out).

When I go to the supermarket, I am just dripping with perspiration. They say this weather should only last this week.

I hope so.

Anyway, also with the new issue of "Elle a Table" was a furoku (freebie), a furoshiki with handles.

This furoshiki is 70 cm x 70 cm.

Perfect if you are bringing something over to a pot luck or even out to a picnic.

elle I hope to use it the next time I go on a picnic, probably when the weather gets cooler though.

Sending cool breezes over your way :) It was crazy hot in NYC this summer, but luckily September has been good so far...

Okay so it might not be makeup-melting hot over here, but I do notice that the sun is especially brutal during the day. I can only imagine how rough it is for the grape harvesters....picking grapes all day in 30°C? Argh!

K and S said...

thanks Kathy!

I say farming is hard work, Rowena!

Take care you two.

You always have such fun little gifties there with your magazines. I'm jealous. ;-)
