    Storage Wars

    I love this tray/glass storage box from Alessi. But at $150 it’s a bit out of my price range. It reminds me a bit of vintage wood packing crates. So, I headed to Etsy to see if I could find any alternatives. Here’s what I found:

    Vintage wooden biscuit box, $49.

    Dovetail box, $27.

    Vintage wood crate, $25.

    DIY-able Animal Dividers

     

    From designer Hiroshi Sasagawa (but not available for sale anywhere in the US that I could find), these whimsical animal dividers would be easy to reproduce with templates and some heavy card stock or lightweight plastic.

    Weekend Test Kitchen: S’mores Brownies

     

    My best friend from Dallas is coming to visit this weekend and is a huge fan of all things S’mores. Last year, we made a S’mores cake for her birthday. I’m hoping to get home early this evening to whip up a batch of these S’mores brownies I found on one of her Pinterest boards. I think if there is an average weight gain in the U.S. in 2012 we can safely blame it on Pinterest. Find the simple (it’s made from a mix) and sinful recipe here.

    In the Swing of Things

    Maybe it’s the spring fever talking, but I kind of want to hang a couple of these in my living room. Especially after seeing this amazing reading room in Mexico city in an issue of the late Readymade Magazine. And an indoor hammock would be theĀ fulfillmentĀ of my childhood Swiss Family Robinson obsession, too.
