Piñatas with Pop.

I came across these adorable handcrafted piñatas from Confetti Systems. I love the glamorous metallic and pastel gem shaped options offered from this boutique party supply brand (also check out the colorful tassel fringe and party jewelry!).  Perfect for any type of party (especially the grown up kind), these adorable surprises will surely take the cake. Designers… think about these as nursery decor. =)

And with every piñata, one needs a blindfold.

Who doesn’t love the classic Composition notebooks from decades and decades back. The white area on the marbled black and white covers were always colored in with whatever Blue or Black pen was in the pencil case that day. Unless you were lucky enough to have red ink and maybe a Hello Kitty purple pen (why did Lisa get everything!).

Old school.

I like to see things a little less greyed and a bit more green with back to school supplies in this century. It just makes me feel good for our planet. New Leaf Paper turns over a new chapter with the 100% recycled Composition book. The marble design turns to the vertebrae of a leaf.

Cool school.

Bring out the green pen for this one.


Summer Sky.

Happy Friday ya’ll! Enjoy a beautiful weekend!

Honey Do This. Honey Do That.

I live with a huge DIY-er. Just another day in the “home” life of my handyman husband. He gets things done around here no matter what he needs to squeeze through. Like this bath fan/vent. Thanks honey! =)

Lady-Like Lumination.

The Olympics in jolly ‘ol England will be soon be coming to an end… but the UK has another show to stir up some global excitement – of course it’s in the interior design realm of events. Forget the famous flickering flame and the sophisticated fashion of the Dutchess… we’ve got or eyes on the lady-like light fixtures at Rothschild & Bickers who will be exhibiting at world-known interior design professional trade show Decorex in late September.

Combining traditional techniques with cutting edge design, the talented makers at Rothschild & Bickers use freeform glass to create visual treats at one of the last custom glass shops in England. Paired with the beautiful metal hardware to create stunning silhouettes, these hanging pendants are sure to dress up any bespoke space. Do as the English do. =)
