These bells are just adorable. They don’t make any noise but they’ll look so delightful in your home, that’s just not important! Side note, they look pretty amazing with my current blog theme too.
Got these for a steal on sale at Adairs (both reversible)
Ikat (pronounced ee-khat) is a dyeing technique similar to tie-dye. The word Ikat is derived from the Indonesian word mengikat which means ‘to tie’. There are many different techniques used to achieve the look with much of it being produced in Indonesia. It is also widely produced across the world in places including South and Central America, Thailand and Japan. Styles and patterns tend to vary which can often have ethnic or tribal meanings. Keep a look out for my post on Ikat DIY and crafts!
A great collection of some of the many different patterns

Yes! I have just used a lame made-up word to entice you into believing that I am witty. What is colourbration? It’s a Colour Collaboration! I guess you could also call it a Colour Celebration, either way they both describe the meaning behind today’s post. To start with this series of posts there was no doubt that the first one absolutely had to be about Pantone’s 2013 Colour of the Year.
