On adorable branding/packaging ~ the Hitachino Nest Beer owl is so cute! And there is even a valentine's day special label... but i love the big bottles with the owl printed on both the front and the bottle cap!

Needed a lot of quick affordable bookshelves this weekend ~ and on unexpected finds, the classic IKEA Billy bookshelves in RED are stunning ~ such a great shade in person! And only $59... too bad no extensions in red!
