Lotta’s Gotta Brand New Book (and Blog!)

I’ve known about the new title soon to be released by Lotta Jansdotter, Simple Sewing: Patterns and How-To for 24 Fresh and Easy Projects (Hardcover) for some time now, but had no clue Lotta blogged until I heard it from my friend Anh-Minh. Isn’t that a great bit of information to stumble upon? I thought so.


You have to check out Lotta’s blog, and don’t forget to pre-order her new book at Amazon for $16. It releases March 1st, and I can’t wait to try some of the projects inside. I’m also excited to see the photos inside since her photographer is Meiko Arquillos who is responsible for some beautiful work for ReadyMade magazine and Chronicle Books. Yeah!

I’m So Popular!

This is the perfect gift for the friend who never seems to tire of her constantly ringing cell phone. The I’m So Popular phone book from Pamela Barsky is the cutest, and if you think we’ve put this behavior in the past just because we’re out of high school… Well ladies, you’re wrong. I know lots of high school students running around and they graduated light years ago… Pick up yours here at See Jane Work for $25 and let the popularity contest begin.

Chalkboard Vase

Show of hands… All in favor of this chalkboard vase say, “buy!” I think it’s darling… Found at Contemporary Living in the UK. Great DIY idea for that vase you’re totally sick of in your bottom drawer (collecting dust). Add a little chalkboard paint and viola! A fresh new look just in time for Spring. Your choice – buy it or DIY it!

Tikoli Textiles

These tea towels from Tikoli are so pretty, I just love how fresh and modern they are with punchy colors and bold patterns. I’m also liking their free desktop patterns to match, fun to use if your computer is in the kitchen – a splash of pattern on the screen, and a few tea towels on the counter to coordinate. Remember: If you don’t have an immediate need for tea towels, think fabric – i.e. sewing projects or to wrap gifts in (instead of gift wrap). Thanks for the tip, Maja!
