Dozi Blog Giveaway!!

Recently had the opportunity to review a product (see the darling hedgehog above) and give away one to one of my lucky readers as well!! How awesome is that?! This little guy will bring instant cheer to any dreary desk, happily holding your paperclips OR perch him along side your sewing machine to pin down those persnickety needles and safety pins! I haven't quite decided where my little guy is going to reside quite yet. He (yup its a he) camped out on my desk yesterday holding my stock of hardly used paper clips but I am going to see if I could put him to better use holding my safety pins at home. Currently they are in a bowl that I keep knocking over and spilling hundreds of pins all over the floor. (which I've done like three times now - arg!!)

Now on to how to score your own Alessi Paperclip Holder!!

Custom Curtain Inspiration

Having moved in the spring of 2007 you'd think we'd already have all our windows outfitted with curtains right? Sigh. No.

We've slowly progressed with our curtains - first we found a steal for the windows downstairs, then we splurged for blackout curtains in our bedroom and we're left with a good 5 windows left in the landing and two spare bedrooms.

I am thinking about just sewing up from fabric I like instead of searching and searching for the right ones on sale. I really love these sewn tie-up curtains from Making It Lovely! So lovely!!
