Band of Bloggers-April

It's that time of year again!

Apple & Pine Needle  I visited my nearest Yankee outlet before the semi-annual sale ended and picked up some great deals. One of which was this medium tumbler of Apple & Pine Needle for only $6.00!  Prediction: I like pine scents and I like apple scents, this could be a winner... Conclusion: sort of? The name...
