Today's photo challenge at http://www.blessedbeyondwords.com/ is to capture a household item. Since I have a strong aversion to all things with a power cord I wondered what I could post that would be representative of my favorite household item. I tell my family all the time that if any item needs to be dusted, washed, folded or vacuumed then it's not a gift, it's a chore. Yes, I really am that difficult to buy for. As many of you know, my family is currently in different parts of the world and I leave soon for the Carribean Sea. Therefore, these are my favorite household items whenever I can gather them home.
