As we gear up for our coverage this year, I wanted to again give a thankful and happy shout out to a few of our favorites from 2014.
We had a fabulous time at the 2nd annual Saturday Social Media Brunch with Socialkaty. ChiIL Mama Tweeted, Facebooked, Instagrammed and Pinned my way to 2 sweet wins, chosen from all the real time social media mentions. Like and follow us this year too. The real time fun for #IHHS2015 begins bright and early THIS Saturday. Be sure to follow along on our social media channels and look for the hashtag.
HUGE thanks again to WiltonArmetale. This whimsical and practical platter has become one of our favorites since I won it at the IHHS Housewares Show last year. It's a gorgeous piece and so useful as grill to tableware!
Gourmet Grillware 18 3/4" Fish Griller
The fish griller is ideal for cooking fish and shrimp on the grill without sticking or flaking. Fish will cook evenly and quickly. Grill and serve in the same piece, hot food stays hot longer.
Guess who showed up at our blogger lunch with his cookbooks for everyone? The charming Chef @FabioViviani!! #ImAtTheShow #Chicago #ihhs2014 #SeenAtTheShow
He'll be back again for IHHS2015 too.
Our 2nd social media win was directly from Aladdin. They were giving out adorable BPA free, dishwasher safe, plastic Mason Jar glasses with straws and lids, full of tasty, refreshing drinks. I won two BIG 32oz Mason Jar cups and gift cards to Binny's Beverage Depot for one of my tweets! Thanks again Aladdin. They've been put to great use this year!
I sure could use some spiked refreshment after 3 days of the Home & Housewares Show & a zillion miles of walking!! #AladdinMason #ihhs2014
#AladdinMason. Something old something new... spring has sprung with funky fun colors & new twist on a classic design! Thanks for the cherry pomegranate drink & the rockin mug. #SeenAtTheShow #ihhs2014 #ImAtTheShow #Chicago #SweetSwag
