Wow, I'm with you on at least half that list! This is such a great idea...I defiantly stole it from you when I made my 101 list. BTW, number 21-I kid you not when I tell you that I have the RECIPE for Bon Ami berry tea. I'll email it to you if you want it! It's always a hit at showers and such (or you know, if you you just want a simple luxury for yourself!)

That is a hefty list!

I would love the recipe for that tea as well if you would email me when you get it!!

Many of your items would also be on my list-what a great idea! I am going to be making one myself I think!
