Beach Towel Blues
A few years ago, I invested in a dozen french blue beach towels to create a color coordinated look by the lake. This year, when the sun threatened to shine, I pulled out my beach towels, and realized I no longer have any of those towels, not a single one!! Instead, I own a collection of towels, that display a random mix of colors and patterns. Not quite the aesthetic I had envisioned, but I decided I needed to make it work.
When I came across this collapsible “Rio” storage hamper at Cost Plus World Market I knew I had found the solution to my beach towel blues. Look what a difference it makes when these towels are tucked away in the bag.
This hamper will be an out of sight way to store the towels year round. It would also be great for stowing pillows, off season bedding or throw blankets.
I love the beachy look of the bag, and the fact that it’s made of from 60-70% recycled polypropylene. The hamper is very lightweight, and the sturdy nylon handles allow one to tote a load with ease. A wooden toggle secures the flap. At $17.99 each I bought a few extras.
The bags are also available in black, red and purple, click on World Market for more information. Braque du Bourbonnais puppies are available from Elk Run Kennels.
Very nice bags, and seeing a braque du Bourbonnais on them is a great pleasure, because this is my favorite breed. Check out its histort here:

Great buy! I love that it has texture to it. I have found some great things at World Market as well – fun store, when you don't want to pay a bundle, but you want some style. And the pup has grown and is looking gorgeous – so well behaved. =) Enjoy your Monday.

Mic Comte — thank you for the link to the history of the Braques – I've heard some of that over the years. It was so interesting to read the first hand accounts, thank you.
Simply Lux — I agree, the world market stores can offer some great finds.
