i like to bring home things that make my husband ask, "and what is that for?" i usually don't have the answer but persist to adopt them to our house. i found the brown bottles at some random bazaar (kemang) and antique market (jl. surabaya). i just know these two won't let us down. and yes of course, i thank him for letting me do what i do ;)
i don't know why, but i can never resist some bird shaped pillows. and i mean never. stuffed bird in a cage by pinot and dita. handmade owl by puri of ideku handmade. find her tutorial here. oh goody, more weekend projects!
was not so moroccan anymore. my mom wanted to throw away this pouf we had since forever, and i came to its rescue. silly me didn't take any before picture. but the ottoman looked exactly like this - uhm, minus the mint condition. it was well damaged, the leather cover was torn to pieces.but now, tadaaa!
it still has that moroccan feel - in a lot more modern way. for me, it's a perfectly renewed love.
oh, am feeling quite crafty today. terai folding chair from anthropologie. copper & teal linen cabinet from nightwood. doily pillow by rachel denbow. find her amazingly easy tutorial here. well, i hope i have some spare time next week to actually make one. errr. maybe i'll just start as soon as all the materials are in the house. please don't ask when :P
opening up a booth at rumah ranadi has been my best decision of this year, well so far considering 2010 is just starting. i found some old friends and new ones in just two days! too bad the garage sale ends today. boo.
patchwork blanket and other lovely baby items by popcorn.
cute little dresses by bugsydelight. and these are what i brought home.
left to right: batik necklace from ayyes, ikea file holders and storage tins from some random booth, polo shirt from zkbabyshop and stylish bib from cocopop crafts. oh, i also ate a plate of delicious steak from holycow on call bbq but forgot to take some picture. sorry :(
i know, i know, it's been too long since i last posted a before-after furniture project. but today, am back with this new old buffet i inherited from my dear mother.
i just added the dark blue paint and those knobs that look exactly like the ones they have in anthropologie, only mine were bought on our honeymoon trip to india for almost nothing. now, why did i just buy two instead of ten? that question will always be a mystery to me.
oh, tara amelz always knew how to cheer a girl up :)
by giving away lovely freebies! this is mine, don't touch. speaking of giveaway, made in indonesia by karina palle is throwing one of dreamesh living's small topit for a lucky winner. be sure not to miss it!
have you read about this DIY blog for babies by Prudent Baby? well, you should. not only that they have these wonderful ideas of recycling, my idea was also included on their latest post (yeay!). and another one on their previous post, back in september 2009.
oh, i can't thank you enough jamie and jacinda. xoxo.
i've been getting some questions about kinanti products for quite some time now, given the review i post about their handmade taraptie bag organizer. well, good news! now they have their own blog so you could see their latest invention: netjes beauty box. but of course it's only natural for me to fill mine with sewing kits instead of beauty products ;)
since i have too many scraps from all those dreamesh living pillows and frames, any kind of scrappy project grabbed my attention - especially this one! lia of lia's space of thought made it look like it was such an easy project. i hope that's true :P find her free tutorial here and happy crafting!
so much creativity, yet so little time. this month, am putting on my handy pants and getting to work creatively. productivity, here i come! for starter, come see my work featured on lia's space of thoughts, thanks a bunch lia and happy anniversary :)
