We love Péro by Aneeth Arora. So when they did this; we only had cause to love them more.
Dolls made from leftover designer fabric, recycling couldn’t possibly get any fancier.
We love the attention to hairstyles. :-D
And the shoes. :)
While the dolls were a promotion for the launch of their children’s clothing line, what caught our fancy was the idea of using patches of leftover fabric to make something pretty.
Well, the nicest part of the story isn’t even that.
Manou from Wearabout got Péro to actually send us a doll of our own.
If the doll wasn’t sweet enough, she came with little pouch of pink and white M&Ms.
We’re never too old for dolls. Especially designer ones. :)

Now if only we could get an entire outfit in the post. Hehe.
Diwali may be on it’s way out, but we still haven’t had our fill of lights.
Today’s guest post shows you how to create a warm, evenly lit space using recycled objects.
We love this spoon lamp sent in by the guys at Triple O Studio, a design house headed by Anupriya Subbian and Tahaer Zoyab.
Inspired by what they see and find, they created this easy-to-reproduce Spoon Lamp for their lobby.
Things you will need:
Step 1: Build a wooden skeleton for the lamp.
Step 2: Cut the handles of all the spoons and neatly paste them together as shown in the picture.
Step 3: Do it over and over until the whole lamp is covered with spoons.
Step 4: Place an electrical element through the lamp as required.
The lamp is everything we love; recycled material used in a basic yet extremely functional design.

If you don’t feel like splashing out on table mats or if you love up-cycling/recycling and doing stuff for the environment, this is the post for you.
It’s really simple to make too!
Get a folded newspaper laminated and you’re set for dinner. (pun intended and not intended, go figure).
You could save your favourite articles this way as well. :)
Material Girls’ Tip: Do up your home with up-cycled furniture (sack cushions, metal chairs and so on), the mats should look great on a distressed wooden table.
If we could kiss buttons, marry them and have tiny button eyes babies, we probably would have by now.
But that’s really friggin’ creepy. Button-eyed children, brrrrr!
So we settled for a less psychotic button love and did this to our pants this weekend. :)
