Don’t you think pets – dogs in particular – make a lovely addition to a home? Such a welcomed sight to come home to everyday.
“Oh, Little Rabbit is an Oregon based handmade business, that was founded in 2010 by Jason and Cara Hibbs. They are located in the heart of the Northwest, in the beautiful Willamette Valley. Specializing in illustration and printmaking, they offer a wide variety of eco friendly house wears and apparel. Being environmentally friendly is very important to them, and they make every effort to use sustainable, organic, recycled and natural products whenever possible. They also use non-toxic water based inks for all of their printing to ensure no harmful chemicals are washed down the drain.
All of Oh, Little Rabbit’s images are unique hand drawn illustrations by the couple. Oh, Little Rabbit’s line of products are also hand printed by Jason and Cara in their studio.”
See (and fall in love with) all their gorgeous home wears here. With some items special for Christmas and others for all year round homey charm, the colours and beautiful illustrations on lovely rustic fabric are a compliment to any kitchen.

I’ve started going to Bikram yoga. Its quite a gross affair because the room is heated and you spend 90 minutes in a class full of strangers sweating like race horses, and me not being one for other peoples bodily fluids, I find it hard to control my gag reflexes when the instructor walks past and suddenly I feel as if I’m standing under a leaky gutter.
That said, however, I find it quite relaxing (once its over) and quite amusing too because people take stretching and lying on their backs very seriously. They come in, unsmiling, with their shorts pulled up to their eye balls and a look that says ‘I’m here to become one with the sweat and get in touch with my inner little Indian man’ (when in actual fact all they are really projecting is that they’re unemployed and that’s why they’re able to attend a yoga class at 12:00 on a Monday afternoon. After all, that’s why I was there.)
I’ve always associated yoga with wealthy housewives and hippies. I’ve always had a soft spot for hippie type living – if you can call it that – probably because of the home I grew up in and although now that I can choose my preference is minimalist, white and clean, a hippyish/ boho styled house lends a certain air of charm and makes the welcome in seem even grander than most places.
From one of the first blogs I ever followed, Moon to Moon offers an escape into that free-spirited, house plant filled, charming-piles-of-delightful-crap-everywhere world.

No longer affiliated with witchcraft, evil spells or the taxidermy of funky smelling hunters, skulls and heads are getting prettier and adorning the walls of some of the most stylish and beautiful homes around the world. Real or (preferably) recycled, a mounted head or skull adds charm and character with options in cardboard, paper, tin, wood, metal, pottery and even jewels and lace.
Not just for the walls, heads and skulls can look classy and sophisticated anywhere when done properly.
