I saw this company, Rajboori, featured in a special style and design supplement to Time Magazine. This is truly amazing bedding. It's eco-friendly in the sense that the "Peace Silk" is extracted from the cocoons of silkworms AFTER they have fulfilled a long life. The process of weaving these quilts sounds incredibly meticulous. It takes 15 days just to prepare the loom for certain types of weavings. Check out the site as it is beautiful.
Gift idea. Any pet lover would be thrilled to get their dog's likeness in a version of a Pillow Pillow Pillow. They might be a tad on the pricey side (avg $86) but for that hard to buy for person.... it's ideal!
My husband would flip for this thing. He's always using our general purpose scissors to cut pizza and it drives me nuts. The Pizza Pro, however, is a scissor spatula combo design specifically for slicing your pizza pie. Everyone wants a different size slice right? This way everyone is happy and they get the toppings they're due!
What do you get when you cross a bean bag with a hammock? Le Beanock! Or pure heaven seating. Le Beanock is floating comfort in the form of a suspended bean bag like cushion. Sturdy as heck with no sharp edges or surfaces. According to their site, it is ideal for kids with special needs. Goes anywhere from the living room to the patio.
This lilac grey linen dress from the Australian Etsy shop Pamela Tang caught my eye. Her shop features all made to order clothing for woman and children, all in gorgeous linen colors like saffron, grey, mustard and wheat. The contrasting stitching adds the icing to the cake. Check out her shop and BUY HANDMADE!
I was so bummed. I thought today was going to be sunny and warm. It's warm but it's been raining all day! So much for yardwork. Doesn't stop my itch to garden so I'm getting back into the Outdoor Saturday posts. I love this Japanese cardinal bell from The Gardener. Only $14. If you aren't lucky enough to live around real cardinals... these might suffice.
Now this is a designer that I can get on board with. Skin and Threads' philosophy is based on using organic and natural fabrics to create a clean and soft silhouette. The pieces are meant to actually make women look and feel beautiful. Imagine that.... thank you. Check out the stockists section for where to buy.
I ran across this new movement called the 3/50 Project. The premise is simple yet full of impact. Imagine the three local businesses you would hate to see go from your community. Commit to spend $50 a month at one or all three of these businesses. If half of the employed population commits to support local independent businesses by spending $50 a month, it would generate $42.6 billion. 68% of that locally generated revenue goes back into the community too. I think it is such a fabulous concept and I encourage you to spread the word.
I missed Earth Day by one day! Grrr.... Anyway, buy yourself this jute tote from June Fifteen for only $12.99. Perfect thing to take with you to the grocery store. Waterproof lining with two bottle dividers and a zipper pocket. Make every day Earth Day right?
