  1. Storage Baskets I Heart

    November 27, 2010 by barbara

    I love having baskets around my home. Whether they are made from seagrass, bamboo, canvas or cotton fabrics, I love them all.   Things are so much neater around the house when you have baskets to store them.  I like to keep my magazines, snacks, bread,  spices and toiletries such as combs, face wash, shampoos and more in the baskets.  Therefore you would find many baskets in my living area, kitchen and bathrooms.  Here are a few lovely ones I found recently.

  9. 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.

    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.
