  1. Linen Sweater

    July 20, 2014 by barbara

    While shopping for design class rings, I came upon this pretty linen abstract flower from J Crew.  It was a love at first sight for me.  It has an oversize abstract bloom on the linen top.  I love the mix of relax and refine of this look.  The sweater is lightweight and goes well with denim, stripe black pants as shown or corduroy pants.

    After I was done looking for Brochure Printing Services, I stumbled upon this really cool-looking Waxed Canvas Market from Food52.com.  This Market Bag takes on the iconic shape and convenience of the brown paper shopping bag.  It is made from sturdy cotton canvas and sewn into a tote.  You all know how much I like the brown paper bag right?  Each bag is waxed by hand using organic beeswax.  It is a perfect reusable shopping bag.

    This cute looking handmade wire sphere basket is just perfect for storing fruits, produce or just about anything that you would like off your counter.  It has a 5 inch wide opening and features an optional removable liner made of coconut fiber for protecting smaller and softer items.  Well, I really like the coconut fiber as it adds a unique touch to the basket.  This basket gives the kitchen some extra space and adds a little visual interest to a room.

    While looking around for a nikon d80 battery charger, I stumbled upon this fun and unique colour changing umbrella at SaraGlove.com.    When the umbrella is dry, the butterfly designs are all in white.  However, as soon as the water touches the fabric, the butterflies would change into a burst of colours like yellow, pink and blue.  How lovely is that?  The umbrella features a push button auto open feature and fibreglass frame.  So if you want to add some joy to your gloomy rainy day, get one of these umbrellas.  It would surely bring smiles and laughter to all around.

  10. Music and Wine

    February 25, 2014 by barbara

    My brother-in-law’s birthday is just around the corner.  His wife is organizing a birthday party for him to celebrate his 40th birthday.   It is going to be a fun celebration.  I have been cracking my head what to get him for his birthday. Actually I found a vox amplug metal headphone amp which I think he would like since he loves listening to music all the time.  Then I was also contemplating on getting him this nifty wine bottle holder – Lasso Bottle Holder as he is into drinking wine.  Decisions, decision.
