I introduced the felt Easter bunny by Daff back in 2009. They are nicely made in 100% merino felt. They now sell them in two sizes and more colors. Since then, Daff upgraded them by reinforcing it with cardboard.
Unfortunately for us, they still only ship in Germany. So, you still have to make your own if you want them on your Easter table. Don’t worry, we did our DIY version. Although cardboard reinforcing and sewing technique requires more work than our foam board and glueing method, the end result looks sharper.
Don’t miss my other Easter ideas.
In six words: to prepare him for the world. It has nothing to do with the fact that I’m a visual person or the fact that design is in my bones. I found my style at 6 years old. I recalled our Sunday car rides where my parents went to see upscale houses across the province. My parents were looking at traditional houses while I was admiring the few modern architecture houses that we encountered. They knew about my preference. Continue Reading
Although 25 centimeters (10 inches) of snow felt on my city this week, summer entertaining will be soon around the corner. I found at Royal VKB two products that will make it easy to invite friends for an informal gathering.
By combining a napkin holder with a cocktail stick holder, it liberates one hand. Plus, your guests won’t have to search where they are when they reach for tapas or finger food. Since the napkin cup is make of plastic, I won’t be afraid to bring it for a picnic. Continue Reading
Since it is a know fact babies needs fat for their brain development, I was surprised when my son reached the solid feeding stage to see that the food industry doesn’t provide parents many options.
And the fascination with 0% fat yogourt, while many are eating bacon and pork belly, does nothing to help parents. I also try to minimize his sugars intake which is why Zack started eating Minigo (fresh cheese) around 10-11 months instead of a regular yogourt. He adores the Minigo! I added the Danone’s Oikos 2% fat a few months later. These days, Zack either eats two Minigo, or a Minigo and a greek yogourt, for dessert at night. Continue Reading
For its space saving versatility, I have a thing for the pouf and coffee table combination. It adds comfort and function to a reading nook, a living room and a bedroom.
Even since I replaced my coffee table with a large storage ottoman with a tray, I want more. I might have found its companion with the Drum Pouf by Softline Design Team from Denmark.

I think that a Drum pouf would make an ideal side table in top of providing additional seating, when needed. As a bonus when living with a young child, two cats or for after a party, the Drum’s cover is removable for cleaning. This pouf with a removable tray definitely meets the requirements of my busy lifestyle. It also has the clean yet comfortable look that I want for my interior. Continue Reading
Back in 2009, I wrote a post about tableware symbols. I never thought until today to publish one on fabric care symbols. Tired of running to my computer or having to look at other clothes to figure out what a fabric care symbols means, I finally decided to print a laundry care symbols chart. I didn’t do nothing fancy. A standard sheet protector ensures that my chart will stay clean and dry. I’m simply glad that I just have to open the cabinet on top of my washer to see it.
Since I am probably not alone with this need, here the link where you can download Your Guide to Fabric Care Symbols.

I have been quieter lately on my blog. It was for a good reason. I needed some time off to think about my priorities and to explore what I want to do for living from now on. 2013 seems to be a year of change for many people and I am one of them. This time off enabled me to take a huge decision. I’m returning to what I used to do before becoming a full-time blogger. My new job is an enhanced version of what I did for years at Paradivision.
What made me changed my mind? First, it was a quest for a more balanced life. Being a blogger requires too long hours for success. But it was mostly the challenges. There are so many amazing things that we can do now with the Internet. Many have not being explored yet. I want to be a part of it! Continue Reading
