And, now the ambit has taken a sculptural turn with a collection of papier-mâché busts of animals that have been adroitly handcrafted by a group of artisans from Haiti (under the umbrella of Restoration Hardware).

Bathroom Update!! I showed you last week how to make some very cute jewelry holders with clothes pin and a piece of wood(heres where DIY Jewelry Holder), now I just wanted to show you another way to use them. Use them to hang belts, scarfs, tights, tank tops, and spaghetti strap tops, you name it I am sure it will work! Like I said before I plan on making some plain ones for my closet for at my apartment to hold some of the things mentioned above. I love the fact that I could store a pair of sunglasses on top of the clothes pin and I even hang some of my rings on them as well! Here are a few more pictures so you can get a better look at it! That earring holder should be up on my etsy page within the week I have several to sell that are blue. Happy Hump Day :) I am headed off to Austin to see my sister, a.k.a my cousin, Pegleg!!
