  3. Space Solving Solution

    If you love entertaining at home but are short on space, well no worries.  There is a simple option available.  Just get an extendable dining table. It gives you the opportunity to place a large dining table in a small apartment or a room.    An extendable dining table can fit into a small room which takes only a minimum of space when it is needed for a small gathering.  When you have a bigger crowd,  it can be extended to seat all the guests.  Tables like this is great to conserve and maximize space in the home.


  4. Japanese Masking Tapes

    November 9, 2010 by barbara

    I am quite fascinated with the Japanese craft using masking tape. The pretty Japanese masking tapes seem to be all the rage right now.  So much can be done with the tapes.  They are great for scrapbooking, packing embellishment, mini bunting and even gift packing.  I think I want to try using some plain paper to wrap presents and then decorate it with cute masking tapes.  You can find a wide range of Japanese Masking Tapes from online stores like, and more.

  5. Recycled Acessories

    November 5, 2010 by barbara

    I found some really cool recycled accessories while surfing the net.  Thought I’ll share them with you here.


    This super-soft and simple scarf is made from unused, reclaimed cotton T-shirt scraps that are collected from apparel factories.  Wear one and it will make you feel like you are cuddling up in your favourite tee at home.


    These messenger-style tote are made from real boat sails.  Each bag has an authenticity tag which unfurls the life of the sail, the type of craft it guided, the type of sail it was and the sea it sailed upon.


    This versatile accessory can be used as a necklace, headband, bracelet to a anklet.  It is made from leftover t-shirt scraps collected from apparel factories.  Each necklace includes 20 strings.

    A friend of mine has recently moved into her new 2000 sq. ft. apartment.  I was invited to her housewarming last weekend.  I really love how she decorated her apartment.  One thing that caught my eyes are the cute chalkboard self storage bins in her children’s room.  My friend uses the bins to store the toys, books and other knick-knacks in the room. I would love to get a few for my bathroom or kitchen.  The chalkboard bins are available at

    I just found something really cool to help the weight-conscious to manage their weight.  It is a Meal Measure from  It is very easy to use.  The Meal Measure fits most dinner plates and measure the food right on the plate.  Each cavities of the Meal Measure are labelled vegetable or fruit, meat, starch and protein.   Each Meal Measure cavity is one cup at the top with a one-half cup line inside.  It follows the USDA My Pyramid serving size.  Dishwasher safe.   So if you do not wish to overeat, get one today.

    I am a sticky note person.  I love using sticky notes at work and at home.  I guess it’s an age thing.  I am at a stage where I tend to forget easily.  Hence, sticky notes save my day.  I have them all over my desk to remind me of some deadlines and in my kitchen to remind me of my groceries.   So, when I saw these cute sticky notes from, I know I need to get some.   A set of this 5 ultra-cute mini sticky notes come together in a notepad and each one has a playful themed graphic.   With these cute sticky notes, you can keep yourself reminded of your appointments, chores,  or return a telephone call in style.


  10. Work Of Art Bags

    October 25, 2010 by barbara


    I stumbled upon these beautiful and unique leather handled carry bags from  These bags are made by hand using vintage oil paintings which were sourced from Belgium and Dutch Flea markets.  Each bag is a work of art.  They are strong, versatile and spacious.  The bags are designed to show signs of wear with use and age so that their stories live on.  I like the one with a long handle.
