Loving My New Brabantia Rotary Clothes Dryer!

I haven't been so excited about doing laundry since I was a kid helping mom with the old wringer washer, but..... 

I wrote a whole page about my new spin-top backyard clothes dryer. You know the kind of clothesline I'm talking about, right?

It's the umbrella kind that is also portable so you can easily take it down and stash away when it's not being used. You stand in one place and turn the dryer so empty lines are there in front of you ready to be utilized.

I feel very European, even though I'm standing under one of my backyard coconut trees. Want to get one of these? Here you go:

P.S. AND........in case you don't have a backyard space for a clothesline you can still use a rotary dryer. Just get the kind that mounts to the side of your home!

Craft Gossip Likes My Good Kitty Karma! Want to Help?!!! :)

Let me tell you a brief story. I like to help animals and so I designed a corner hammock pattern for homeless kitties for my local animal shelter, the Hawaiian Humane Society in Honolulu. (No, of course I did NOT invent the corner, hahaha, but I did create this original pattern.) :)

Over the past few years I've sewn and donated lots of animal things to the HHS and to many animal rescues and shelters in the U.S. mainland. The animals need all of us sewing for them.....I can't keep up!

You can now access my online version FREE where I have published a tutorial on Squidoo. The great folks at Craft Gossip are helping me to spread the word. So, please even if you don't sew I'm asking you to share this post and this link so we can create lots and lots of happy kitty karma!

 Thank YOU for helping the animals! YAY!!!

My New Decorating and Crafting Word is: eclectiCheap!

The entire last year from the beginning of summer on was literally a blur. My husband and I began our DIY renovation of our 640 square foot cottage here in Hawaii. What an experience that was!

Renovating Our Cottage

I've neglected my postings and I apologize to those couple of people who may have noticed. ha :)  We are still doing bits of finish work but for all intents and purposes the main job is done. I will share a few pictures with you today, BUT I wanted to tell you about my new word.

I made it up this morning and it's perfect for me. The word is eclectiCheap. What do you get when you combine Eclectic style with Inexpensive? You get my new word..... eclectiCheap. (Pronounce it as if you were combining the two words Eclectic and Cheap.) I kind of like it, don't you? 

What kinds of projects are you currently working on? Please share!

Aloha for now!
