Pretty Little Fakes: Flash Tats

Summer, sunshine, festivals and flashy tattoos. These little fake skin images have been pretty dead the past years, I would say. Unless you were six years old maybe. But now they seem the have a beautiful revival in the form of cute golden and shiny tattoos. They are from the American brand FlashTat and can be purchased via Blissany as well.

Bargain Season Has Come Upon Us

Sale is my favorite fashion-season, naturally. Pretty items get even a little more pretty with a sale tag on, don't you think? I've already scouted through the shops in Berlin and have just now started to scan the online world for great lasst-minute-summer-bargains. In the collage you can see my favorites so far...

Pineapple Galore

1. Pillow 2. Tote 3. Ceramic Box 4. Necklace 5. Print 6. Clock
Tropical prints are all the rage these days. It seems like there a palm trees, flamingos and pineapples on shirts, pants, walls, carpets - everywhere. And I must say, I'm growing pretty fond of it. I even printed some palm tree pillows for my couch (tutorial to follow). But first, these lovely pineapple items above to get in the mood.

New in: Lamps in our Shop

 It's been quiet on the blog lately, but that doesn't mean I wasn't busy. We've pushed the production of our lamps which we had designed in our minds already but didn't had the time yet to execute them. We've built a couple new table lamps for you to purchase in our little lamp shop at Our lamps are handmade from top to bottom and make the perfect gift for somebody else or to yourself.

I've also selected a few other lamps I like, but I guess for now I'm sticking to my selfmade ones.

So long.

DIY: Storage Solution for your Washitapes

My collection of washitapes is ever growing. These versatile little craft helpers are great for decorating gifts or pretty much anything else around the house (I sometimes have to stop myself from washi-tapin' my entire appartment). Since my love for these little rolls is also known within my circle of friends, I got a huge stash of gold ones gifted a couple of weeks ago. With about 10 new tapes, my old storage solution was definitely too small know. That's why I came up with this quick, easy and cheap DIY for a washitape holder to make in about 10 min. 
All you need for this is a brass or copper rod and two pliers or pipe tongs. I bought my threaded rod in the hardware store for about 3€. My rod was about 5 mm in diameter. I recommend one with less width, since the 5 mm one was really hard to bend.

You start off bending the closure hook. When this is done, bend the rest into a circle. The hook needs to "look at you". So you hold the rod with the hook facing you and bend the rest to the side, as you can see in the picture. To hang up your washitape holder, you need a large hook at the end that should look like the one from regular clothes hangers. And you're done!

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to leave a comment.
