{Never Mind a Headache with SUCH Rose Bud Ice Bag!}

Having a headache, a fever or a swelling, is never fun but here I want to present a very practical (the BEST I've used ever!) ROSE BUD ICE BAG. 
It comes with a handy screw on watertight plastic cap and you fill it with ice cubes or cold water. 
The outside is made of latex-free, rubberized fabric that feels soft on the skin and is lined with vinyl. 
This ROMANTIC + PRACTICAL Rose Bud Ice Bag is really a great GIFT!
Photo taken on our white teak table on the balcony, in daylight...
Lovely Vintage Rose Bud pattern.
And YES, such romantic patterns do work soothing for any headache or fever!
This treasure is available from The Vermont Country Store.
This would make a great Christmas Gift!

      It is very practical and so lovely; I fell in love with it at first sight but I'm even more impressed about its use! No, let's hope that it stays idle for quite a while now...

      Thank you, this is lovely... Glad you managed to find my comment! The email is only generated after it has been added onto your blog post. Never mind, at times we are a bit sleepy I guess.
      Have a lovely day and the mail usually takes a long time. Ten years ago it would reach us after 3 or 4 days but times have changed.

    1. Beste Marianne,
      Oh, vertel mij wat, wij hebben ook al vaker naar een ice-pack (zo'n bevroren ding voor in de koel box) moeten grijpen. Die zijn ook niet soepel genoeg. Ik was best blij met deze vondst.
      Liefs,

    This looks so sweet and practical. Ice bags from my childhood were gray tweedy affairs....enough to cause a headache themselves!
    Enjoy the day......*s*

    1. Dearest Suzy,
      Oh my, what a childhood experiences. But it is so true how certain designs could cause a headache, or at least worsen it... This is truly a special find and works as a charm!
      Happy day to you as well.

  11. Mariette, te he mandado dos correos. A ver si han llegado a Spam. Besos.

    Replies
    1. Querida Enma,
      Sí, ambos correos electrónicos fueron en mi carpeta de spam en el servidor... Respondo a te de nuestro correo privado, así que quizás eso va a funcionar mejor. No había ningún tema sobre el correo electrónico, que probablemente causó que terminan en spam. Mientras que haya iniciado sesión en el servicio de correos español y seguimiento de tu paquete; fue durante 5 días en la ciudad de Nueva York y ahora está en Nueva Jersey. Espero que llegue pronto y te lo haré saber.
      Cariñosamente,
      Mariette

      Thank you and rest assured, there is no need for this icebag from my side! Having a rather busy week with Advent organ and trumpet concert today and a Christmas dinner coming up next, to which we are invited. Lots of things to do in the final weeks of the year.
      Hugs to you,

      Absolutely a practical item for any household and this one is so romantic looking. Yes, blue ice is correct. I used that too before we had this bag but blue ice is not pliable...
