My life has been hectic and a little overwhelming these last two months my oldest daughter broke her leg needless to say its been really hard for her as she was headed to Eastern Europe to intern her delay has frustrated her. She and I went to the New York International Gift Show and really worked well together  something really positive came from her injury we experienced some amazing retail therapy. We spent a considerable amount of time browsing for functional but fun things for everyday life. The clean lines and bright colors make them fun to use this is a coffee  press cup you just put your favorite ground of coffee and add hot water, a button on the top enables it to compress. I bought one for myself as coffee is a very large vice of mine they retail for $ 14.99 great gift idea. I purchased this computer case as its grey felted wool and very sturdy it holds the computer but turns into a stand I like that it so functional but also the clean simple lines.

This is a wool felted back pack very sturdy and will wear really well. Don’t you love the color?? I am going to put my coffee cup and knitting in mine. What a great traveling bag  again what attracted me to this piece is the simplicity and how useful it will be also the color is my favorite! The backpack  retails for $88.99 I am in love.

I know shopping isn’t for everyone  what makes buying online so appealing is the ease of  finding unique things you cannot locally. My website has been rebuilt and the finishing touches are being added I have decided to have a grand opening I am going to offer 20% off to all of my blogging followers. I will have my date soon I am so excited and inspired great things are headed this way. One last thing I added a new plant to my shabby chic table Its a climbing plant that flowers dosen’t it look stunning? ( I adore my shabby chic table)IMG_0510
