How Many Ways Can You Use Koteli Reusable Bags?

Posted on October 14, 2013 | 0 comments

As an emerging brand of reusable bags, Koteli combines sustainability and style with each bag.

Annie Housewife Featured in Food Magazine

I know, I couldn't believe it myself! When I opened the email Adrian sent me, with a picture of our FMC concrete bowl beingfeatured in Food Network Magazine, I could hardly believe it. 

A few months ago, Adrian mentioned that an editor from Food Network Magazine had contacted him about featuring the bowls. I didn't think anything would come of it. I still didn't think anything would come of it when we sent the bowls to be photographed. It was only when I saw the article myself, that I got excited!

It's so exciting when someone else sees the beauty and unique appeal of our carefully selected products, like we do! So check out the FMC concrete bowls in the October issue of Food Network Magazine, out now!!!

Just arrived! Handmade ceramics from Studio Lorier in The Netherlands!

Posted on April 23, 2013 | 0 comments

This has been one exciting month for us! With lots of new additions to our store, what's one more?! So we are proud to introduce you all to our friends at Studio Lorier, in The Netherlands, who hand make these unique and modern ceramics themselves!

We currently have their bowls, leaning flower pots and my favorite - the thermo cups! These cups will be sure to keep your hands unscalded, while you enjoy that cup of hot tea, as the cup is built with an inner cavity, away from the outside wall - to keep your hands cool while you drink. It's genius, and a wonderfully modern look to add to your dining experience too! The bright colors they come in, are just an added bonus, and will ensure you're ready for Spring entertaining...

Check them out here, and make sure you sign up for our newsletter, soon to be published, to keep up on the latest Annie Housewife news!

I want to eat these! I know, it sounds crazy, but I think that's what Pepper was thinking when we spent the afternoon smelling these new additions to our store! They come from our friends at Coco and Bubbles, and Adrian found them!

They are so divine, I am so excited about the Spring fragrances we picked out for you all:

- Honeydew and Melon


- Grapefruit and Mangosteen (my fav!)

• Eco-friendly - 100% soy wax is used to make these candles. Wicks are natural too, made with cotton.
• Handmade - All candles are hand-poured.
