Cute Japanese Products

Oh, I love it when I find stationery at a great price!

While doing some cross border shopping yesterday, I scored some very adorable Japanese products. On the left, painted wood strawberries with each day of the week and a little wooden clothes peg on the back. Top right, plastic drawstring bag with bunnies that will be perfect for the Princess' soggy swimsuit after swim lessons this spring. And for me, a roll of paper tape decorated with Hello Kitty.



We've been exploring the free activities during the Olympics and having so much fun! It's been great to be a part of this exciting event that has taken over Vancouver. Here we are at the Yahoo center.

Vintage Milkglass Vase

The postman was just here! And look at what he brought!

It's the vase I won for my huge bid of $2! This pretty little milk glass vase stands only 5" high and will be a great addition to my forest nest. I can't wait to get it home and fill it with some pretty flowers that have been arriving at the local stores.


A soft place to play

Almost 3 months ago we installed new flooring on the main floor of our little nest in the forest. What I didn't realize at the time was that our kids would miss the warmth of carpeting for playing on. They still also enjoy laying on their bellies and watching tv from down there. So, before the holidays, I thought that it would easy to find an area rug that both DH and I could agree on. W-R-O-N-G.

I'm happy to say that after going through 8 or 9 other stores, we found one that we thought would work. Brought it home, and the kids were immediately unrolling it for us and put it in place. So, it's received the stamp of approval from everyone in the house, doggie included.

New Rug! on 365 Project

I know that red can be too intense for some, and I was worried myself. However, after having this in the family room for the last 3 days, I must say that I love seeing it against the new dark floors. It injects the colour that was needed.

Now...my search for new couches and armchairs begin.
