A fun craft and easy way to decorate is to create a pretty seashell container, a delightful dish or a
desk accessory like a paperweight from shells collected while on your beach vacation. You can put shells, starfish, and other found
items in a glass canister and then use a paint pen or permanent
marker to write the vacation location on a sand dollar. Hang it from
the side of the canister with twine. Another simple idea is to use a large shell, turned upside
down, as a bowl for jewelry. Put it on your bedside table for easy
access morning and night. For larger items, such as conch shells or
puffy sea biscuits, use them as paperweights on your desk for at least one
daily reminder that isn't about something on your to-do list.

Camilla and Olivia Tipler, owners of
MOZI, grew up surrounded by their beloved pets including Peter
Rabbit, Max the Giant Poodle and Pepper the blackbird. These have
provided inspiration for their designs and have woven their way into
the very fabric of MOZI. Also heavily influenced by their far-away
travels and love for all things exotic, MOZI's designs are a fusion
of color, pattern, theme and subject that inspire the imagination.
The designs are currently applied to over twenty-five products
falling into six main categories from kitchen textiles to stationery. These are some favorites from Mozi's kitchen category, but they also offer lots of fun stuff.

honestly don't know what to say about Michael Lau's fall line-up
dresses other than I don't think I would even wear any of them as a Halloween
costume. OK, maybe at Halloween. But only to a costume party. With
really good friends. Maybe.

Korean designer Jung Ee Eun, who
specializes in metal and art design, has created a very bold collection that is nothing like those we already have on the market.
The bra necklace is funny and original. Made of brass and plated
with gold, the 80A necklace shaped like the underwire used in the
lingerie item is a jewelry piece that only the truly self-assured
person would wear!
