Advice from Design Diva: Back It Up!!!

By Holly Peterson

Dear Friends,

If you own an iPhone or any other type of "smart phone", back it up!!!

I was visiting Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for the last few days, attending a friend's wedding, and had my iPhone stolen the morning we were leaving. As you can imagine, I feel lost and a little violated...
Don't let this happen to you!!!

Luckily, I do have my iPhone backed up on my Mac, but cannot access any contacts until the new iPhone4 gets here in mid-July. In the meantime, I will be using a salvaged phone with no contacts stored, from 2006 (a Motorola Razor of all things)... Don't be jealous!

Just thought I would share and welcome you to my pity party!!!

Looking forward to mid-July!!!

Universal Knife Block

By Holly Peterson

Well, this is handy. Wood blocks that only offer one slot per knife might leave you stabbing around hoping to find the one that fits, and they don't offer much versatility for accommodating new blades. Ute (short for utilitarian) Australian Design eliminated the individual slits on their carbonized bamboo base, giving a happy home to your parers, cleavers, and everything in between.

Made by: Ute Austrailian Design
Price: $79.95

Crocheted Bowls

By Holly Peterson

Large White Crocheted Rubber Bowl

Neo's crocheted bowls have a definite whimsical appeal and feel soft and silky. The yarn that forms them, however, is neoprine rubber, a material which is used frequently in plumbling and the motorcycle industry. The bowls, which are hand-made in Italy, are strong and durable despite their delicate appearance. The small, medium and large nest one inside the other.
