did you drop by our booth? April 1, 2007

feeling a little sad that we had to remove our stuff from the Eco Luxe booth (a fringe event as part of Singapore Fashion Festival at Raffles City from 23 March – 1 April) but it means we get to reopen our online shop!! Yays and cheerios 😀 Some visuals, with loving pride.

this is how things were looking on day 1. Can you spot the new goodies? 😀

My fave ‘i ate candy floss’ got sold and I totally expected that! New owner, you deserve it!

Did you pick up our bookmark freebie? Collect all 4 designs (that is, if you read 4 books concurrently. We do not encourage wastage!)

There were some huge installation art pieces that were created out of recycled materials by other artists. THEY ROCK! It’s amazing what they can come up wiith (and the amount of space they have to accommodate them anyway). Kudos to great eco-friendly attitudes throughout the entire event, we say.

Of course, we made it to the billboard of Eco Luxe honor because of our participation. If you saw us there, please leave a comment (and some love). XOXO

Home & Decor finally covered us in their April 07 issue! That took quite a while considering we submitted all the details in Dec 06 😛 All those items featured have been sold though. And they forgot to provide readers with our URL. Hmmmm. Nevertheless, it’s nice to have our items featured next to Plank’s furniture 🙂

Speaking of home decor publications, I really fancy the ones from UK and Australia. They’re delightful to look at, with many home decor ideas. Totally inspiring. If we ever have a shop (starts fantasizing….), it’ll be fun to whip out some of my 5 year old Australian and British home decor magazines and gather some ideas! 🙂

So here it is… we are in Home & Decor.
