I just love the abra cadabra gift set from Lekker, in mediterranean colors, which was just marked down from $80 to $60 and available now on thier website. Perfect for spring parties with your friends. Serve up fresh veggies, waffle pretzels and assorted yummy dips in style with these porcelin bowls. Add tang to your table!

Boston locals: In addition to online shopping, Lekker has a retail space located in the South End.

Reader Seeking Nest in Maine

Letter from reader in Maine. I know exactly what she is talking about below, but I don’t have a clue where to find this information since I haven’t seen the commercial lately, nor do I recall the product that was being advertised. Anyone know?

I made your blog page my browser startup page. I can’t believe how much stuff you add each and every day. It is sooooo cool! You are one busy chicka! I was wondering if you had noticed a picture that was in a recent tv commercial. I know you don’t watch a lot of tv and it’s only onscreen a minute or so. We have ‘rewind’ on our tv so I keep rewinding it to check it out. It’s a commercial where a mom is sleeping in bed and her kids are sneaking up on her and then she jumps up cause she is feeling fine and surprises them. Cute commercial. But the picture is on the right hand side of the screen on the wall parallel to the bed. It’s a large closup of a nest and in the bottom left hand corner of the nest are blue eggs. I’ve looked and looked and can’t find this picture in stores or online anywhere. I was wondering if maybe you had come across it in your exploring? I NNNNEEEEED this picture and it’s driving me nuts that I can’t find it….it’s become like the search for the holy grail. LOL

Talk to you soon!


Can anyone help Sondi?

Reader Question from Montreal

Before giving my two cents, I’d like to see what decor8 readers have for advice to Karen up in Montreal. Here’s her letter below. Any ideas? Email me or comment below.

Hey Holly,

Maybe you could help me out with some space in my new apartment? I?ll try to draw you a picture and scan it.

The problem:

We have a small entrance. The entrance opens into the living room, which is actually being lived in as a bedroom. And we are 3 girls with 3 different opinions on how the space should be used…

Carly: says that we should keep her white whicker dresser and armoire in the entrance as storage and a table to put keys on and a lamp etc. the drawers would hold mitts, scarves, hats etc.

Liz: says that the dresser and armoire is just too much for the entrance and that we should use her smaller night table stand to put keys on and a lamp etc. Even though the stand doesn?t match (not that the white whicker does either) it is wooden like something from the 70?s ? but not in a cool way ? with gold metal handles on the drawers.

Karen: says that for a small space less is more ? we should have a mirror on the wall 1- to check ourselves 2 ? to open up the space. And maybe a chair or a plant and that?s it?

What does Holly say??

Love ya babe!!
