I just love this shop on Etsy! The designers behind K & K Artistry live here, in Houston, and create some of the most interesting jewelry and accessories I’ve seen! Enjoy. : )
Oh, how we love a good game of Tug of War! What we have brought to you this time are two very different items that both are beautifully unique. The Jaden console has very rustic elements that undoubtedly can fit in numerous spaces. It’s natural features with iron details give it a great look that everyone will love. The Mirrored Credenza is a very glamorous piece that will add that elegant touch. Beautiful at every angle, you can’t deny that this mirrored credenza is at the top of it’s class. Let us know which one suits your style in this weeks Tug of War on High Fashion Home’s Facebook page. Comment on which is your favorite and you could enter to win a $200 gift card to the store.

I’d like to introduce you to Zipper8Lighting. I found these awesome light pieces while on Etsy. Her light fixtures look incredible and I love that she uses materials like plastic bags, road maps, old paperback books an even drink umbrellas to create them!
Let me start of by professing my love for the Kindle. E-readers are definitely the future, and it looks like the future is finally about to descend upon our public school systems. McGraw-Hill just launched it’s first digital only textbook.
There are numerous advantages of the digital only format. When publishers need to make minor updates, they won’t have to print thousands of these heavy text books to schools around the country. It saves paper, saves gas, and most importantly, saves money. Each paper book costs roughly $50-80 dollars to our school systems (Let’s not talk about the budget shortfalls that most public entities are facing). Now they can send a quick update so that students will have instant access to the right information.
With the price of e-readers dropping quickly, our kids might be able to get their hands on one sooner than later. Worst case, parents should buy their kids an e-reader instead of a phone or video game system.
I love my Kindle!
>Today, while on Etsy, I came across the cutest shop!! It’s called Jenzet (aka The Little Illustrator) and in that shop you will find some of the most original and adorable prints! The original pictures were done on a real sheet of paper with a real pen (by Jen of Jenzet) and then digitally colored. The prints available through this shop look great and have such sweet images and messages; I just love them. Also, Jen can do custom prints for you, you need only talk to her about it. AND, did I mention that she is right here in H-Town?? Enjoy! : )
>Last week I did a post on pillows and got a suggestion, from Decorative Pillows, to showcase some eco-friendly and fair trade pillow options. They asked and shall receive.
For those of you not familiar with the term “fair trade” here is what it means- “Fair Trade is an organized social movement and market based approach that aims to help producers in developing countries obtain better trading conditions and promote sustainability.” (Thank you for that explanation Wikipedia) And I’m pretty sure most of us out there know what eco-friendly means so I will just get on with showing the pillows! Enjoy! : )
