I buy and replace homewares like there's no tomorrow, and it's only recently that I've tried to take stock of the environmental impact that must have. You know me, Creatives; I love to bag a decor bargain and I love to update the look of my abode. But I do wonder what that means in the bigger scheme of things.

The Crafty Minx at Home - MirrorIt's no secret that I love to get my craft on, so this release from Kelly Doust, The Crafty Minx at Home, is right up my alley. Filled to the brim with upcycling ideas, furniture reinventions and enough projects to keep you going for months, it's undoubtably a crafters bestie!

You know, I'd never really given much thought to whether or not replica furniture was ethical from a design perspective. As a boy on a budget in my early twenties, I'd nab the cheapest furniture I could find that made my home look nice, with no regard at all for its origin.

Pigeon & Weasel CandlesCreatives, you know by now that I'm in dire need of an intervention to deal with my increasing candle addiction. But if I may be afforded one last binge, like the contestant have on The Biggest Loser before they start their diet, I wish it to be with a Pigeon & Weasle candle. Primarily, the scent 'Red Frog', which as the title suggests, smells like the lollies of the same name. This is one candle making story with a difference - and it involves utilising recycled beer bottles. Genius!
