August First #Back2You

It is August first and I am getting excited. While I love having the boys home for summer, I so look forward to the fall. Back to routines, sweater weather and pumpkin spice. August 1st is for me when I start the back to school shopping and my thoughts quickly jump and turn towards the fast approaching Holiday season. Yes it will be here before you know it, and I found a site that makes shopping that much easier
I am a destination shopper and trips to the mall are not high on my list of enjoyable activities so I appreciate the ease of shopping on line from home and while I was browsing while enjoying my morning pot of tea.  I stumbled upon and their #Back2You campaign and love the idea. Yes when it is back to school for the boys that means new school supplies, back packs and clothes but I love the idea of the #Back2You and the idea of a list all for myself. So please indulge me as I share my ultimate #Back2You wish list.  I fell in love with this Tea&Hope throw pillow and have placed it on the top of my #Back2You list. Often when the back to school roller coaster takes off and takes me with it I have moments where I feel overwhelmed, those anxious moments you know I turn to a cup of tea.
I love going through the site and making my wish list. I think this wooden sign is perfect for me, maybe perfect for many of us here!
Getting #Back2You an item I would love is this bath caddy that has the book rest, the one I have doesn't have this feature and this is a book lovers delight. I was surprised that this one is under $40 so it is on my #Back2You list for sure.

Cute as can be and on my #Back2You wish list is this magnifying glass holder in the shape of a dog. I think with all the cozies I read that feature these furry heroes this would make a great addition to my photos and not only is the magnifying glass a symbol of a "mystery hunter" for those of us North of 40, it makes a handy gadget also!

I have been wanting to find the perfect reading chair but have been unable to decide between a recliner and a chair and a half.  I was thrilled to see this Snuggle Recliner on .This chair has everything I am looking for and it reclines! This is on my #Back2You wish list for sure!

There are a few ultimate items for my #Back2You wish list and the Outdoor Sheds (free shipping)  like this one are so inspiring. A "She Shed" or "Backyard Reading Retreat" is just what every mom needs! I love my "tea tent" but a more permanent structure is high on my list of just for me items. This one is under $5,000 !

I think that it is the split farm door that makes this so endearing to me. I have always wanted a door like that.

This dreamy Outdoor Shed (Mom retreat, she shed, tea room, reading room, personal space) is slightly larger at 9 feet (and only about $1000 more then the previous one) and would give me more room for bookshelves and a cozy spot for tea and a read! Saving my loonies for something just like this from

I know summer is not over yet but I am looking forward to fall an I am even looking forward to holiday shopping, on line and from my comfortable spot here with the perfect cup of tea. Thank you for indulging me this morning and I would love to know what would be on your ultimate #Back2You list.

 I hope you have a wonderful rest of the day. I would love to hear from you so please leave me a comment here or email me at


  1. I love the pillow. With all our political craziness here in the U.S., I think we all need to be reminded that a cup of tea solves a multitude of worries.
