You know those gorgeous rose gold envelope bags that Joji + Co created for us last spring, and that sold out in less than an hour? They made a new order for us!
These all-purpose bags work equally well as a project bag, a handbag or both! They come with a detachable strap so you can use them as a clutch, as well.
And because they sold out so quickly the first time, we asked Joji + team please pretty please with sugar on top, would they consider making a notions pouch to go with the bag?
And YES! They said YESSSS!
These bags are handmade in Argentina by a woman-owned company (Joji’s good friend) and they are very limited edition. Jussayin… if they’re calling to you, you know what to do.
If you’re a rose gold lover (like me, obvs) then you might also love this pretty little collection we’ve put together for you.
It includes a Birdie Parker valet tray, leatherette tape measure and shimmery rose gold Loops Luxe yarn, all at a special price. A great way to upgrade your “everyday” yarnie experiences. 💖

Grilled Corn with Green Chile Honey Butter
Being in love with a guy who grew up on a farm in rural Nebraska, I’ve learned a lot about corn over the past year 😅”Hot Luke” swears, in his teenage years, he used to be able to eat 10 or more cobs at a single sitting! And the first time I tasted his signature corn on the cob, basted in Miracle Whip, with a squeeze of lime juice and a sprinkle of Tajin seasoning, I understood why. Yummmmmmmm. But if the Miracle Whip thing sounds a little freaky to you, I suggest tiptoeing into it with this recipe from Half-Baked Harvest. It’ll open new corny doors for you, I promise. 😆
- 6 ears corn
- 1 stick (8 tablespoons) unsalted butter
- 1 4.5 ounce can Old El Paso Chopped Green Chiles, drained
- 1 chipotle pepper in adobo
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more if needed
- Preheat the grill to medium high heat.
- Pull the outer husks of the corn down to the base and strip away the silk. Fold husks back into place to cover the kernels.
- Grill for about 5 minutes on each “side” – rotating corn 4-5 times. Once the corn is finished, remove the husk and place back on the grill until lightly charred, about 5 more minutes.
- Meanwhile, add the butter, chopped green chiles, chipotle pepper in adobo, cilantro, honey, cumin, and a large pinch of salt to the bowl of a food processor and pulse until combined.
- Spread the butter over the warm corn. Serve with salt, cilantro, and limes. Eat!
