Taken for granted

There are certain common things around our household that one takes for granted. But we can’t live without them. When we finally need to use them I am sure the thought, “Now why didn’t I think of inventing this!” has crossed our minds. Several items belong to this list: safety pins, hair pins, thumbtacks, post its, paper clips, clothes hangers. Surely we can think of plenty more. I certainly hope that the inventors of these items got a patent for their design and their heirs have held on to it.

 

Now why didn’t I invent this!

This product which I came across last week belongs to the classification above. The ‘Now why didn’t I invent this’ category. Such a simple idea and an affordable easy way to change the whole look of your sofa or bed. The owners of the aptly called PRETTY PEGS describe their accessory as a shoe for your furniture. How delightful. Now truthfully, how many pairs of shoes do you have in your closet? To match your mood and the season, shoe accessorize not only your outfit but also your sofa and bed!

 

All the pegs, which are from solid ash wood, are designed and handcrafted in Sweden. Scandanavian design of simplicity and ingenuity at work here.

 

Brilliant and cute

The idea came out of a shopping trip to IKEA. Couple, Mikael Söderblom and Jana Cagin, were not happy with the choice options for legs of sofas they liked. Pretty Pegs: the concept is brilliant and cute.

 

This made my day. Go ahead and let it make yours, visit the Prettypegs website to view their complete range of sofa and bed shoes.

Color: The Best Way to Bling Your Living Room

Are you bored with the present state of your living room? Spice up this part of your home through colors! Paint a wall or toss some bright and sunny cushions on to your sofa. Or why not go all the way and buy a new colorful couch.  Color is a good way to beat the doldrums and re-energize yourself.

 

I am going to take out my sewing machine out of storage – swipe away the cobwebs and blow off the dust. Colorful upholstery fabric wasting away all these years in the cabinet are crying out to be sewn. These pictures of colorful spaces have inspired me to start coloring my life. Starting with simple cushion covers, then on to curtains…who knows a new headboard for the bedroom may be up and coming. The husband will be needing sunglasses to counter all the sunshine and the rainbow that will greet him when he comes home… Surprise, surprise! :)

Recycling Books for Eating, Sitting, Planting and Everything Else You Can Imagine

Okay, who loves books? I like them but I am not a fanatic. There is one person in my life though who is passionately head over heels in love with anything written – my sister Susan!

 

 

Filipino Partridge Family Invades Syracuse!

 

 

My parents were working students at Syracuse University in New York and of course they had to bring all of us 5 – most of the time – well-behaved brats with them – Filipino Partridge family invades Syracuse! We lived in a small 2 bedroom apartment that had as neighbors working students from all over the planet. I had fun and wonderful memories of my childhood in the Syracuse University Married Student Housing Compound. One of those memories was of our eldest sister Susan, a teenager that time, being assigned the closet as her very own private space, meaning, her bedroom. None of the younger siblings were jealous or took it against her. Being the eldest, it was just the natural order of things in the family.

 

 

A local newspaper in Syracuse features our family.

 

 

This could have very well been Susan and her bedroom.

Her love for books, comic books and anything written transformed her own private closet into a haven that became a cozy library wonderland for all of us. Whenever Susan was not around, we the young ones would sneak in to read her Archie comic books, Emilie Loring, Barbara Cartland, Georgette Heyer novels. We would be transported to a world where we were the beautiful heroines who met dashing super rich handsome heroes living in mansions or be cool like Archie and have a gang of fun friends. Jughead was my favorite amongst Archie’s friends – super laid back, super geek, super cool. Pogo and Richie Rich were also much loved comic characters.

The turning point of our favorite sanctuary was when our mother decided enough was enough. The comic books and novels were threatening to invade the rest of our small house. Huge black garbage bags filled with our treasured paper backs and comics made their way to the trash bin. We all had to help. That fateful walk to throw most of the books away felt like doomsday — it was the end of the world for us. Yes, as ‘co-owners’ of the books we were crushed. Imagine what it was like for Susan! We can all laugh about it now. But Susan’s love for books never waned. That is why I hesitate to share this post with her.

 

What I am showing here are books being recycled, ‘re-imagined’ into everything else be it for eating, planting, sitting, just about anything you could think of except for being read. My dear sister Susan, should this article get to you, forgive me in advance. But for all the orphaned books out there threatened of being ignored and rotting to extinction or worse destined for the landfills, these projects are much better alternatives, don’t you think so? :)
