there is a cat sanctuary located in our closet, where paris, the oracle cat, goes to ponder life's great questions.

sassification

one of the most life changing things i have at the store is the python tray. for crying out loud they are fabulous. and affordable. i couldn't believe it when i found out the price. i was like, for real? shouldn't i pay you more for these...  but alas, they're only $45.

betsy has one.

more

we acquired a huge stuffed peacock, in full plume.

he's lording over the pillows.  he looks sort of drunk.

rowdy is very unsure about the whole thing.  he won't get on his bed, but will lie on the floor just near enough to keep an eye on the peacock.

i made some art for the monster nightstands.  brian says it's very modern.  he's mine ladies - my discerning husband.

i feel compelled to make a point

i haven't made a strong point in a good while.


these tables are from oomph. and yes, they are cute as all get out.

and here are the dimensions, and pricing, respectively:
40", 19", 33"H $1330
8.5", 18" 20"H $360
8", 18", 20"H $420
16", 16", 20"H $460

they are wood, and lacquered in sherwin williams paint.

and here's a shot of the scale you can put it all in perspective. that pillow is about to eat the $460 table.

this is not an acceptable price. this is downright unreasonable. i saw them in person at the gift show and i had a oomph of my own due to sticker shock. i cannot abide by this. i'm going to sell you cuteasallgetup lacquered tables for $75 and sleep well at night.

spotted


reading lonny now...
interrupted to report to you that i've spotted my tiny martha casserole dishes! good reminder for me to use them.

a story and an example

brian meares works for a marketing firm. a few weeks ago they had a young woman in for an interview, and during the course of it, she bragged about her workout regimen and the size of her 'guns'. towards the end of the interview, she decided to flex her 'guns', for the owner of the company, and said, "BAM BAM HOLLA".
she did not get hired.

i got a new settee in today. bam bam holla?
