4 Faves – Version 19.0

Posted by lori . 7 Comments


Bonjour Poupette!

I love whimsical things.  Imagine how delighted I was when I found Bonjour Poupette! In addition to her magical creations, Sofie has a wonderful blog where you can further explore the world of this poupettiste (poupette maker).  Particularly fascinating to me, the Poupette du Jour Project.  In November 2010, Sofie challenged herself to create one poupette a day for a year!  I am the proud owner of Honey Duster. He came beautifully packaged with a sweet thank you note.  Sofie makes the whole experience of purchasing, receiving and own her creations, magical.


PBS was launched in October 1970, so I didn’t grow up with PBS.  I came to love PBS as an adult.  You can find shows, series and educational programming on PBS that you can’t find anywhere else.  I particularly like some of the local programming our PBS station offers.  If you haven’t looked at PBS recently, reacquaint yourself with this American treasure.


I know that ever since I featured my favorite toilet tissue on 4 Faves, everyone has been waiting to see what my favorite paper towel is.  The wait is over…it’s Bounty.  Imagine my surprise when I opened my current paper towel roll.  Is that a greyhound I see?  Now it’s really my favorite.

Strap Perfect

This is a nice thing to have in your undergarment arsenal.  I bought this because I purchased a tank top with racer-back styling, and I didn’t own a racer-back bra.  They are also nice to keep your bra straps from falling down or if you want to get a little more life out of an old bra that is losing its support.  I was also able to put it on by myself.

    Squeeeee! Those Poupettes! Did you SEE the pink bunnies? And the German Shepherd? Okay, I’m having a moment, I’ll try to calm down! Those are just beyond cute!

    I love PBS, too. We now have three different PBS stations here (when we’re receiving them) and my favorite is Create. I love the History Detectives series and the Victory Garden!

    Greyhound paper towels? I have got to find those!

      I KNOW! I’m already narrowing the list of “my next poupette.”

      I LOVE History Detectives. I purposefully didn’t mention it because I think it’s going to show up on a future 4 Faves list.

      The greyhound paper towel roll was a complete accident. I usually get plain white, but my husband bought a combo pack of the Bounty ExtraSoft and all the rolls had designs. When I pulled out the “puppy” roll, I almost passed out. The hoarder in me wanted to save it, but I overcame the urge. Use it, enjoy it, move on…that’s my policy (most of the time).

    Oh, I’d never heard of a Poupette before. How cute are they? I’m gonna have to go check them out.

    That paper towel roll is super duper cute. One of my mom’s guilty pleasures is buying decorated paper towels. I’m gonna have to make sure she is on the lookout for those.

    Wiggles & Wags,

      Aren’t the poupettes adorable! Sofie also does custom work…so there could be Mayzie and Brudder Ranger poupettes!

    I want to know if I get the Strap Perfect will instantly give me amazing cleavage like the girl on the package. If so this would be priceless 🙂 Oh wait I would need something to push up first LOL

      I can tell you that it will. In fact, if you just want your straps held in place, I recommend using these with a well-worn bra (one that has lost a little of its supporting power). I tried these with one of my newer bras and it held everything up very well, but a little too tightly for my comfort.

    I am honored to be featured on your lovely blog! Thank you so much. This is such a fun post. I grew up with PBS and my mother swears it taught me how to read. I’m a huge fan to this day. I’ve honestly never even considered the images on my paper towels but I think I may be studying them the next time I’m at the grocery store!
