I saw these lovely hand-painted enamel floral tumblers at Amazon.com. These colourful tumblers have a Asian-touch to them. They come in a set of 4 and are made from recycled aluminum and are hand painted by artisans in India. Besides adding a festive touch to any parties or dinner table, these floral tumblers are great as Mother’s Day gift. I would love to get a few (dropping big hints).

Spring is the time for many homes to open up the window and let the fresh air comes in. Many people I know would take this opportunity to do some spring cleaning and decluttering. I am in the mood for some organizing around the house and was looking at The Container Store for some ideas. Found a few interesting storage items which I can surely use.

So I was invited to a lovely garden wedding last weekend. It was the wedding of my dear friend’s sister. The venue was decorated with lots of yellow, white and green shades. It was pretty shabby chic and I spotted many cute planters like the one shown in the photo below. There was a live band at the wedding with the musicians on classic banjo, drums and more. After the wedding ceremony, the guests danced the night away. It was a beautiful wedding.

I have been seeing these paper straws everywhere nowadays. They seem to be the rage right now. I guess it all started with Pinteres and everyone is looking for these paper straws for their parties. There are so many things you can do with them besides drinking. I have seen them on cakes for hanging buntings. These colourful paper straws are sure to add some retro charm to the party. Get a few of them in different designs for your special occasion.

I love to accessories. Jewelry can dress up the most casual outfit. It is actually very fun to choose the right accessory to compliment your outfit. A simple ring can spice up a t-shirt and denim. I found some of the most beautiful rings yesterday while surfing the internet. They are vintage rings at River Queen Rarities – http://www.etsy.com/shop/RiverQueenRarities.
I just love these beautiful vintage ornate sterling silver carnelian gemstones.

My girlfriends and I are planning on a vacation this May. It is going to be an all-girls only holiday to the beach. I was told that we will be attending a concert there as well, if we manage to buy the tickets. Our favourite band will be holding a one-night concert at the beach resort. I just cannot wait to see the band in action. I just love listening to them playing their music on the Big baby taylor guitars. I am still deciding what to pack for the holiday. I will definitely be bringing my accessories with me and while surfing the net, I came upon this Largo Travel Accessories box which is just perfect for storing my knick-knacks. If you want to travel in style, find out more at ZGallerie.com.

Currently I am a little obsessed with Marimekko’s design. It all started when a friend brought back many Marimekko plates, placemats and trays from her travel overseas recently. She has been posting them in Instagram and that got me hooked. So I went online and found a few items which I have put in my wishlist.
Pieni Unikko potholder
