Get the Hint Stickies

These adhesive labels are so cool. Makes me want to stick it all over the place.

Sliced bread note books

These notebooks designed by collaboraters Burak Kaynak and Cem Has are the best inventions since sliced bread. There are 12 notebooks in one pack and each one is numbered so you can assign one book per month. How fun is this?

It is amazing how much clever packaging can do to a product.

Portland General Store

Etsy store owner of Portland General Store, Lisa Brodar, makes a wide range of body care products ranging from skin creams to fragrances for men and women and designs the gorgeous packaging labels herself.

I am intrigued by the product above - a cigar box filled with old-fashioned goodies which includes one sample of aftershave splash, one sample of shaving jelly, one sample size of TABAC soap in a jar, one sample of WOOD ultra thick body creme, and two samples of eau de toilette.

This will definitely make a lovely and unique Father's Day Gift.

Secret doors and such

Specializing in building secret doors and passageways in your home, Creative Home Engineering is the perfect solution to creating that hidden Narnian/ Ann Frank world in your own home. The music in their website completes the picture. Wonder if it is difficult to DIY this.

Orla Kiely for Target

The previous post got me curious about Target so I checked into their online store today and found out that Orla Kiely now designs for Target! You can now get her gorgeous designs on housewares at the most affordable prices. You cannot believe how tempted I am to get these mugs for $11.99 for a set of 2 from Target right now.

And the serving tray above is going for $14.99 (in stores only). Gasp!

And the Orla Kiely Orange Flower Collection above is selling for $11.99!

Give me one good reason right now why I shouldn't get these, apart from the fact that I have no more space at home.

Stitching Sweatshirts

I can't believe Pam Garrison turned this budget Target sweatshirt into such a gorgeous work of art. This has me inspired and itching to start stitching bits of my old clothing away to give it a new lease of life.
