0 Father's Day DIY | Custom Photo Playing Cards

Giving a customized gift makes celebrating someone that more special and with Father's Day just around the corner, we thought it would be fun to make Dad some custom photo playing cards using images of some of his favorite things.  Lifeguarding comes to mind and so we dug back into our archives, and found the perfect ones!

0 House Proud With Dyson | Cleaning Up In a Hurry!

(This post is sponsored by Dyson Canada and the DysonV6 Absolute , a powerful cordless vacuum cleaner that tackles large debris to fine dust, carpets to hard floors. We've been a fan of Dyson for years and love that they've come out with this powerful cordless version. Thank you for supporting the brands that support Poppytalk.)

In every home there's a few places that everyone tends to avoid during cleaning patrol. High, hard to reach inset window ledges, awkward heating vents in the stairwell or even above the door. You know, the places where we say the grapes really are too high, and they would have been sour anyway, so we just kinda overlook them. But every once in a while —the coming of spring or when company comes, we really need to clean up those long lost places (and sometimes in a hurry)!

1 Dispatch from Sweden | Shop Tour - Lagerhaus

Lagerhaus is a budget-style home accessories store in Sweden with over 34 locations, and now expanding into Japan. They create their own product, making for a unique budget shopping experience!  I sort of am kicking myself now for not picking up the rug (below) 8'x6' for 699 SEK which equals approx. $102 CAD. And those copper clothes hangers (just below that) at 69 SEK or $10 CAD.   Let's take a look at the rest shall we?

2 Oh Hoy Bedding from Fine Little Day

Fine Little Day's OHOY pattern has been one of their best loved patterns ever since it was presented and nominated in Sweden's largest professional meeting point for nordic design - Formex Formidable 2010. And now it comes in textile version for the bed, one of Fine Little Day's new emerging product groups. Made of a high quality GOTS certified, woven organic cotton percale, each set, single or crib size, is packed in a neat textile pouch.  See more here.
