A bag for a wife

Now that we're nearly married I feel compelled to buy this fabulous bag for the other half. At the moment he's the one who always buys those raffia bags sold in supermarkets.


The best part is the fact that the bag costs just $6.95 (£4.65) from Archie McPhee.

Thanks to
Rare Bird Finds for bringing this to my attention.

Sweet dreams

This beautiful headboard carries an adorable sentiment despite being wonderfully simple. I love it and think it finishes the photo off perfectly.

The image is of a bedoom styled by Sophie Anderson.

Office mouse

I've been thinking quite a bit about my new office recently. The other half wants a minimalistic, simple vibe, whereas I prefer my office to be full of cute inspirational little objects and pictures.

We leads to this adorable paper clip holder, Fievel goes desk. It has a magnet inside that keep you paperclips in all place and costs just $13.99 at ModCloth.


We'll have to find a compromise somewhere.

Cool, calm and collected

I'm most definitely a hoarder, especially given the 150 interior design magazines that I now have stacked up in my hallway (thank you Freecycle!).

The word "hoarder" however, has negative connotations.
These images, recently posted on poppy talk show that collecting things is most definitely not negative, especially if you display your treasures thoughtfully. The weirdest things can look cool when gathered all together.

Then again, the prospect of moving my collection of 500-plus magazines in six weeks' time does feel me with quite a substantial feeling of fear.

Milk it

I'm not really one for fancy milk jugs, which is why this one caught my eye.

Although it will mean you don't have to put the shop bought carton on the table, it isn't stuffy like some milk jugs are. And it's a bargain at just £9 ($13).

Head to helitrope to pick one up.

Soaking up style

I dream of a bathroom like this. It's so stylish and decadent. I could spend hours in that gorgeous tub. Mmmmmmm.

Clean easy

If you want to bring a suggestion of personality into your bathroom without breaking the bank, you can't go far wrong with these fabulous retro soaps.

They're made by Digital Soaps and are available through Etsy. And as they at just £3.60 ($5.25) they're the perfect way to bring a splash of character to your bathing space.
