Ahhhh…Spring. It’s right around the corner and you know what that means, don’t you?
Tulips and daffodils and….sniff…sniff…and birds chirping and bunnies hopping and…cough…cough…
Spring in our house doesn’t only just mean splashing in puddles and admiring the cherry blossoms.
It also means colds (I’m literally fighting one as I type this) and allergies. Basically our entire house is one big ball of snot.
Nice visual, huh? 😉
That means we require a lot of tissue. A LOT. But I have a bit of a ’tissue issue’.
You see, I’ve never liked having tissue boxes on display. I’ve always taken the tissue out of the paper box and put it into some other fancy-schmancy tissue ‘holder’. Yep. I’m one of those.
But, when Kleenex launched their new line of designs I knew it was time for me to resolve my ’tissue issue’ and proudly display these beautiful boxes!
All it takes is a quick peek at the Kleenex Style Studio and you can tell that these aren’t your grandma’s tissue boxes folks.
And as soon as I saw this beautiful blue floral creation I knew it would be the perfect addition to the wood caddy in the kids bathroom that just received a Spring makeover.
Oh I know, it’s not officially Spring yet, but considering this bathroom has had a snowman hand towel hanging up since November I figured it was time to move things along in here.
Of course, I couldn’t just stop with the bathroom, now could I? Not when I saw this gorgeous yellow Kleenex box!
You know, in spite of the allergies and the colds and the snot, I really do love Spring.
I love that the days are getting longer and we see the world coming back to life. I love that out of the blue there will come this moment. This moment when the temperatures unexpectedly rise and you find yourself opening the sunroof as you cruise around town feeling that warm, fresh air blowing all around you.
And even though it might start raining again (or snowing again!) no more than an hour later, you had THAT moment.
That moment where you remembered that there will be warmer days ahead. Days filled with flip-flops and slip-n-slides. Days working in the garden and grilling and going on picnics.
Of course, those warmer, slip-n-slide days don’t guarantee our house won’t be a big ball of snot from time to time.
But now that my ’tissue issue’ is fully resolved we’ll be able to wipe our noses in grand style!
What about you? Do you have any tissue issues? If you visit the Kleenex Style Studio I KNOW you will be as surprised as I was to see all of the amazing new options there are for proudly displaying those little cardboard boxes in your home too!
Now, how about a little bit of trivia!
True or False…
1. Kleenex has been around for 90 years.
2. Kleenex was first created as a disposable way to remove makeup.
3. Kleenex designs have made 2 appearances in the NYC Museum of Modern Art.
If you answered TRUE to all of the above then you definitely know your Kleenex history. And to learn even more about this amazing product simply head on over to the Kleenex Style site. You can even watch this fun video AND take a style quiz to find out which designs are right for you!
Now, friends, I must go. My nose is running and I need to ‘catch it’ with some tissue. Hmmm…should I go with the blue abstract flowers box or the yellow peonies box? Choices, choices! 😉
