Make a Hip Frosty Punk’nman

Getting the most bang for your buck with holiday decor is is something we’re obsessed with. As I mentioned in our October Decor feature, pumpkins are one of the best decor options because these hearty gourds can last for months! Here to prove that little ditty, I took the gorgeous pumpkins purchased back in October and revamped them for a holiday display on my doorstep. We’ve all seen the painted pumpkins before so this year I wanted to try somethingRead more

Whiter, Brighter Teeth…Naturally!

There’s a lot of buzz out there about Fluoride – especially about the more-harmful-than-helpful side effects. The majority of commercial toothpastes contain many artificial ingredients that can have a negative affect on our teeth and bodies over time. Given  almost every brand out there is filled fluoride, what’s a person to do if they decide to live fluoride-free? Why, grab yourself a tube of a healthier alternatives, of course! Unlike the former options that tasted horrible, today’s selections are as yummy as theyRead more

Keep Your Umbrella High On Grass

We mean wheat or your garden variety grass, of course. From the mind of Junjie Zhang, a true eco-conscience genius, comes an awesome facilitation of simple indoor gardening. Ancient Chinese philosophy states that respecting the principles of nature is paramount to human survival in this world. Those currently living in heavy storm zones can do just that by still enjoying a bit of the outdoors all the while staying dry indoors, thanks to the coolest umbrella stand we’ve ever seen. The trick is the speciallyRead more

Birds Of A Painted Feather Flock Together

It was during our very first art class that we fell in love with the joys of paint. Despite an emphasis of more color on the page than our fingertips, we felt the colors just seemed to pop more on our skin rather than the plain white board. Clearly German artist, Gesine Marwedel feels the same. Her stunning works of art call to the ancient rituals and ceremonies of our ancestors (where body painting first appeared) while still speaking to the modernRead more

Hold the Sugar & Hide Your Jewels in Style!

To know us is to love our endless quest to find the dual purpose in everything, even items that we’d gladly deem well enough alone. Take the beautiful sugar bowls and apothecary jars of mornings passed. Uniquely stunning yet visually fresh, these bowls would hold sugar with pizzazz and became an anchor of style in every kitchen counter. But when faced with a few more baubles than would fit in our Secret Book Compartment or Stenciled Necklace Holder, we were forced to yet again, get creative.Read more

I Can’t See You So Clearly You Can’t See Me

Like an ostrich in the sand, there’ve been several times we wished we could just bury our heads and shut out the world. Crazy early phone calls, computer crashes moments before a presentation, that awkward office newbie that somehow knows your ex a little too well (and loves to remind you). Maybe it’s just a plain ol’ case of the Mondays but either way, we’ve all been there and we’ve all wanted to drown it out. Now thanks to the Ostrich Pillow, inRead more

Put A Bird On It! And Your Necklaces Too….

We’ve seen framed cork boards all over the place to redecorate your home and organize your jewelry, but this time we took it a step further and decided to make it a work of art all on it’s own, in addition to being an amazing necklace holder. Wanna see how we did it? Then Lets Do The DIY Thang, shall we? First up, grab that crappy picture you found at a yard sale 2 years ago (or maybe that was just us), spray paint, clearRead more

Got Something To Hide? BOOK IT!

Finding new ways to repurpose is as innate for us as breathing. In our minds, everything has a dual purpose. Every. Thing. So while out and about on a ‘hunting expedition’ at the local thrift store we came across a gem so amazing, so sultry, so blissfully perfect, we just HAD to snag it. What’s so sexy about a book you ask? Well dear kiddies, this isn’t just any book. It’s a GAME. We couldn’t believe our ‘luck’ when weRead more

Eff The Mess – Rethink Your Kitchen Clutter

When it comes to reorganization, there’s no limit to what you can do. Given our OCD-havin’ selves are obsessed with all things organized, this little topic is where we shine. So make a couple of Virgoans feel better about their silly quirks and take a gander at these clutter-wrangling ideas and how to repurpose them in your home.
