    Disappearing Pens


    No comments yet

    Where do all the pens go?  I believe this is one of life’s greatest mysteries.  Just a little over a month ago I bought another pack of 24 pens.  Only two weeks later I only had two pens leftover or, at least, that I could find.  Do little gremlins take them?  Am I just putting them in the trash or laundry or sink and not realizing it?  I understand this seems a bit weird ranting about missing pens in a blog, but it is more than that.  I bring this up because I am not alone in this struggle.  I kept thinking there must be better places to store most, if not all, of my pens and other little knickknacks.  Luckily there is hope.

    Earlier this month I tried one of our beautiful Fair Trade Hmong Wallets.  These wallets are embroidered in traditional Hmong designs and are available in various colors.  They are perfect for storing anything your heart desires, pens, of course, included.  You will never have to worry about losing your pens again.

    Experiencing the World


    No comments yet

    While my son was in college he spent half a year abroad in Hong Kong.  He studied the history, diplomatic relations, and art of all of East Asia.  At the end of his stay he was fortunate enough to be able to further travel inland into Southern China and eventually Southeast Asia.  It was here that he learned a tremendous amount about the world and was able to fully experience other cultures.  Upon his return he wanted only two things in life: to be able to continue to travel, and to learn more about art abroad.  I, of course, try to support him in continuing to strive for these goals.  Though he hasn’t been able to travel again yet, LifeHeartHome.com has broadened its inventory to accomplish his dream of being more fully emerged in art and handcrafted treasures from abroad.  We will continue to search for items that awaken the love of art, culture, and travel in all of our customers.

    Winter Weather Blues


    No comments yet

    This year it has seemed relentless how the East Coast and Midwest have been experiencing horrible storms and severe winter chill one after the other, while the Southwest continues to undergo a drought of epic proportions.  For those of us on the West Coast this plight is made slightly more bearable by the beach and ability to still go out.  For those of us on the East Coast traveling outside is a little bit more of an ordeal.  However, I have found that our hand woven silk scarves have kept me warm and feeling stylish in any weather.  It is a perfect gift for someone braving the harsh winter in the East or simply hoping to add a little style to their ensemble in the West.
