See you in 2007!

Wishing you all the merriest Christmas & the happiest New Year!

Thank you for reading my blog. It's been wonderful to read all your comments in 2006, I hope to see you here again in 2007.

Take care now. Happy Holidays!

Home for Christmas

We're back from our trip and we're going to spend the rest of the holiday here in Singapore, with a small gathering with our dear friends on Christmas day, and a New Year celebration with some relatives who are coming to town. So...., what would make a great last post? more plates, perhaps. ;-)


I'm leaving today for Jakarta, Bandung, Surabaya, and will be back in two weeks time. As usual, here are some links for your browsing pleasure:

Not enough reads? You can always rely on the 100% links on my side bar. I hope you love them as much as I do. -->

Happy HO HO HO Holidays!;-)


Hey great news readers! I've just received an email from Mike of Inhabit, and I'm so thrilled to be the second in the Inhabit's Great Pillow Design Competition! Hooray!!! Second is a good place AND a good start for me. :) Thank you all who voted for my designs, and thanks to Mike and his team for the great opportunity. My heartiest congratulations to Brian! :)

Here's another good news, Inhabit is having 20% off on all orders over USD 100! Type HOLIDAY when prompted during checkout. Watch for the shipping date if you're sending gifts for Christmas. Happy Shopping, folks!


I'm catching up with all the great reads around the blogland. Here are few links that you shouldn't miss:

Coxi of Life Fever did an amazing interview with Amy Butler, definitely a must read. Great work, Coxi!

Grace's d*s december shop is open for business with ten indie designer products (by amy ruppel, heather guidero, sara bee jensen, k studio, amh design, janessa from a fortes design, townsend sakai, happy menocal for black pearl press, re-surface design and moontree letterpress).
And don't miss Grace's great post over at BizBoxBlog on how to get your products into shops, and the Posie Gets Cozy links that Grace mentioned (S.U.P.E.R!).

I've been a fan of IVANAhelsinki ever since I saw its collection at Janne's blog last July. So it was a nice surprise to see an email from Pirjo Suhonen of IVANAhelsinki in my mailbox last week. The designer behind IVANAhelsinki is Paola Ivana Suhonen, while Pirjo is in charge of the marketing side of the business. They started IVANAhelsinki 8 years ago with contemporary women wear, and this year, they've launched their home & gifts collection, IVANAhelsinki HEMMA. I have waaaay too many favorites over there, so I can't possibly show all of them here, but if you really must know my fashion favorites there, their ROUVA and GIRLS collections are my picks. If you want to see all of their collections, you have to click on the right arrow located at the bottom of its picture (I almost missed it). Thanks, Pirjo!

So, click away, folks! :)

AU Maison, Denmark

If you are crazy over pillows, you have to take a look at AU Maison collection. With tons of pretty patterns and designs, plus 100 % made in Denmark, I'm sure it'll be easy for you to pick your favorites there. To find out if their products are available in your country, click here. Happy Browsing!

p.s. Plastisock baby clothing is now available in Australia, with worldwide shipping! Thanks, Helen. :)


We don't really celebrate Thanksgiving in Singapore, but I know some of you who do. Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family! :)


I searched for 10 Swedish Designers's site after seeing their book, Ten Swedish Designers – Printed Patterns over at biotope (an AMAZING japanese design shop, btw).

As I expected from the book, 10 Swedish Designers offer numerous products with their big, bold, and strong patterns. I heart that ironing board cover! and do you see that dog's leash and collar? love it. Too bad, we don't have dogs. :(


I'll be away for a short trip and I'll be back next week. Meanwhile, please check out the following links:

For those who missed my excitement earlier this month, or new to this blog, here's a gentle and shameless reminder. :) Please help to vote for my pillow designs at the Inhabit's contest. Cast your vote for # 4, okay? ;-)

Take care now, I'll see you in a week's time. Cheers.

Woohoo! New Stores!

Two of my favorite photographers, Maditi (Germany) and Anneli (Sweden) have just opened their shops! I've known them for quite a while now, each has their own unique photography style. I'm sure you will be hooked to see more and more of their photos once you see their work. Check out their blogs and you'll know what I mean.

Maditi has opened an etsy store filled with her Polaroids prints, and you can find Anneli's shop, Cosas, filled with Scandinavian goodies.

Congratulations to Maditi and Anneli! Now GO and SHOP!


Although it might sound like Italian, Kadossimo is very much French. All are written in french with no english text available. But that never stops me from browsing for visual delights, like this and this. If you're a fan of the french cartoon series Barbapapa, you might like this and this, too. Enjoy!

Tralalart, France

Tralalart is the brainchild of Marie Leveque, a graduate in Decorative Arts, who has passion for photography and graphics. Above are my favorites. Check out the rest of her collections here. I guess if you're crazy over plates as much as I am, you'll be seeing more and more of them here. :)
