Maple Pate Board

on
Can’t you just picture a crock of pate on this gorgeous Live Edge Maple Pate Board, surrounded with slices of crusty baguettes, tart Granny Smith apples and fresh figs? Or better yet, can’t you envision how that would taste? In fact, excuse me. I need to take a moment… Okay, I’m back. Handmade by artists […] [Read More]

A Surprise Bedroom Makeover

on
It’s my daughter’s 5th birthday today and I am so excited to re-do her bedroom for her. It will be a surprise. I am taking the day off so that when she comes home she will (hopefully, if my plans go well) have a new and improved bedroom. This what it looks like now. Not […] [Read More]

Making dish washing convenient and eco-friendly

on
Personally, I love the convenience of dishwasher pods. Pop one in the little detergent well, press the appropriate button, and voila!  Clean dishes. It’s like magic. Plus, I feel like the pre-measured packs seem to clean better than standard detergent, although that may be entirely in my mind. This 24-pack of Grab Green Automatic Dishwashing […] [Read More]

Let There Be Light

on
I still haven’t figured  the meaning of their name (and perhaps their isn’t one) but i am enamored with graypants‘ products none-the-less! They call themselves a conceptual design studio and luckily for us the company, with designers in Seattle and Amsterdam, turned their concept for lighting made out of recycled cardboard into a reality. Behold, Scraplights! […] [Read More]

Bamboo and chrome

on
I am a huge proponent of bamboo. In fact, even the floors in my home are stained bamboo. (Although one would never know that at first glance.) Not only can we feel good about ourselves when we opt for fast-growing bamboo as opposed to ancient hardwood, but it just gives any space a natural feel. […] [Read More]

Eiffel Side Chair

on
These recyclable polypropylene chairs have been years in the making. They were originally designed in metal and entered as a prototype in MoMA’s 1948 International Competition for Low-Cost Furniture Design. Designers Charles and Ray Eames then changed the material to fiberglass in 1950, and today, it’s crafted with injection-molded batch-dyed polypropylene. I particularly love the […] [Read More]

Cool Weather Comfort Food (Slow Cooker-Style)

on
I am writing this post with a sweatshirt and socks on and I am not pleased! It’s about this time of year that I start to mourn the ending of summer. Not having to wear layers, longer days and barbecues are just a few of the things I love about summer. I’ll also miss veggies […] [Read More]

Cleaning those damp spots

on
This non-toxic cleaner is a great choice for high moisture areas of the home, such as bathrooms, kitchens, saunas, showers, or even pool tiles and decking. (It’s not recommended for aluminum, though.) For those interested in controlling the quality of their indoor air, (which should be all of us, if you ask me,) this SafeChoice […] [Read More]

What I probably love most about these Itzy Ritzy Reusable Snack Bags, (shown here in “Whale Watching Pink,”) is that they zip. I have other reusable snack bags that, while great in their own right, fold over and therefore I feel like they never totally seal. But these have sealed edges and completely zip to […] [Read More]

Knot Your Average Material

on
I can’t get enough of rope as a material for jewelry, home accessories and personal accessories. And I don’t discriminate…jute, cotton, quilted, I love it all. Here are some great finds on Etsy that I’m drooling over. Love the simplicity of this necklace from HearsayDesigns. Wouldn’t these rope door mats from MakaiStore make a nice house gift?
