I love Easter. All those chocolate bunnies, the ones with the long ears. Yum. I stumbled on this site and just had to share. Matthew Mead is a stylist extraordinaire. His beautiful site is full of Easter ideas, crafts, decorating and food. To top it off there are free downloads. Check out his other seasonal offerings in the bonus section. Enjoy!
Kim and I received an email from Jodie Fried. Jodie is the woman behind the inspired idea of bholu. The range includes cushions, throws, journals, slippers and a cute children’s range of line and cuddlies. Products are designed in Australia but brought to life by Gujarati women in India using traditional techniques and motifs drawn by children of the slums. Even better bholu is a Fair Trade company and part of the proceeds go back to the women and their communities, along with funding educational facilities for underprivileged children.

D’Ette Cole sent me pictures from last year’s Clutter as a taste of what you can expect this year. D’Ette unfortunately has sold her share of Clutter to concentrate on Etta Industry but no fear it will still be as amazing as ever. So if you’re in the vicinity of Warrenton, Texas make a bee line to this fabulous round top antique sale from March 30 to April 7.

I love seeing how people group objects together to form a vignette. Whether you do it with objects similar in colour or objects of the same form or just plopping a bunch of knickknacks down on top of a dresser, I like to think of it as art. And it’s something you can switch around often to keep things interesting in your home. I know – I do it ALL THE TIME.
