    A friend just adopted a little puppy about a week back.  It is so adorable and the puppy is a Schnauzer.  She lets him stay inside the house and takes him for walks every evening.  My friend is thinking of getting this cute little home for her puppy.  This luxury doghouse features a solid walnut locking door and made with non-toxi, no VOC and 100% natural protective finishes.  It also comes with an optional dog bed that is handmade by Gamla using organic cotton fill.   Available at

  2. Sandwich Maker

    One of my friends received this nifty gadget for Christmas.  It is the Hamilton Beach Breakfast Maker.  It is oh-so cool!  It can easily cook breakfast in just five minutes using your own fresh ingredients.  This sandwich maker gently toasts the bread on top and holds the heat inside.  The egg layer would cook the egg inside the sandwich.   It is so quick and easy to use.   I want one for my coming birthday please.

    Bento bags are not only great for food.  They can be used to store yarns, fruits and pretty much just anything.  I love the concept.  They can be used for just about anything. It is so functional and unobtrusive.  All you have to do is tie it close and stuff them into another bag.
