Rethink your table settings

Bringing nature to your table via wooden plates and cutlery may not be the most practical, perhaps? But it is very trendy. Very right now. At flee markets you may still find beautiful wooden items for almost nothing. Prefer new ones? Check out british designer Gary Allson's wooden plates, bowls and cutlery below.

Why be a minimalist?

Why be a minimalist? Leo Babauta's explains at his website Zen Habits:
It’s a way to escape the excesses of the world around us — the excesses of consumerism, material possessions, clutter, having too much to do, too much debt, too many distractions, too much noise. But too little meaning. Minimalism is a way of eschewing the non-essential in order to focus on what’s truly important, what gives our lives meaning, what gives us joy and value. Read more on minimalism here.  Below: Spalted Beech Table by Howard Werner.

DARK STYLING - Natural Beauties from Japan


REPOST from March 2013. 
Award winning japanese designer Katsumi Machimura started off as a jewelry designer in the 1960s, and didn't dig his hands into clay until years later. His stunning ceramic work has both elegance and roughness - proper gems in themselves! Katsumi Machimura also love gardening, and share his passion for nature in his garden blog. I borrowed these pictures of his ceramic work and natural photos from Atelier Katsumi here.

DIY: 4 creative ways to decorate your Easter Eggs

Easter is here, and if you'd like to try some new decorations around the house, shop or office, here are some egg-ideas worth trying. Even when I don't have time for much else, I always like to try out new ways of decorating my Easter eggs. Here are a few I want to test this year. 

First out are these drilled and waxed beauties, which I found here:

OK, maybe drilling and waxing is a wee bit too complicated for me...  
I think I'll decorate my eggs using somewhat simpler techniques. 
Like Dip Dye, which I found here and here (bottom set):


... using natural dye from berries, herbs, onions and veggies:


Isn't this great? Decorating eggs by attaching leaves before dipping them in dye. I found these images and useful step-by-step instructions here



And finally - the simplest way: just boil the eggs in all shades of naturally dyed water. I found these pictures here (top left) and here and here (bottom). Good luck!

DIY: Creative Washi Tape Easter Decorations


Still got some fun rolls of japanese washi tape laying around? 
This is what you can do with them to spruce up your Easter decorations. 


I found these clever ideas at an Estonian website called Teip,
where you can order more washi tape, if you are out of stock. 




PS: är det bara jag som tycker att den svarta 
etiketten/servettringen ovan ser ut som en fästing? ;-)
