paper suitcases

I am always looking for something like a box to keep all my craft supplies, something so cute that you can display it in the living room. I found an awesome solution: paper suitcases, coloured, practical, cute, in different sizes. On Pink loves Brown.

attractive packagings

As a lot of people buy a book because of the cover, I am quite often attracted by the packaging of a product: Globus Organics has a wide array of unique and cohesive packaging.

We got back from Italy a couple of hours ago. I have a deal with my friend Beatrice: we are going to buy those nice shoes made by Goldenponies (you might have already seen them on my last treasury list).
I am going for the patent leather ones, while Beatrice for the black and white.

paper dolls

Paper dolls were a different way of playing when I was a child, of course we had Barbie and more common games, but luckly we also had a couple of old style french paper dolls that we were carefully keeping in a perfumed soap box...such a sweet memory.
I am in my parents house in those days back to Italy and I was thinking about those dolls, who knows what has become of them? By the way I was thinking abut that and I decided to look for cute paper dolls, but for templates I found this super nice artwork by Woolandwater, aka Amy Earles. I think that she creatse amazing old fashioned paper dolls, it can be a cool small gift for Christmas.

I am working on my bag for the weekend: the iPod is on charge, already thought about which clothes I want to bring with me.
Urban outfitter is always a great inspiration for clothing but also for music (with the Music mondays free downloads), I downloaded them all.
Then surfing on another website, Maison Scotch, I found out exactly what I want to bring, OMG I have to change again the bag that is going to be filled to the brim: a couple of tshirts (white, one with a graphic black and white, one grandadd top), a cardigan and a pair of jeans.
Of course I will bring a comfortable pair of blue jeans, my Sk8-Hi blk vans shoes, a big big handmade scarf and my eyeglasses...

what I am doing

In those last days I am crochetting a lot since outside it is cold and wet:
. two garlands (banners if you prefer), was thinking to put them on sale on Etsy but I am not totally sure, you, what will you do?
. a new blanket only made with left-over wool, as I told you few days ago.

In the end, we bought the Pantone mug we were wishing since long time!
