things to discuss

1: intern hired.
meet keila.  this is her at the flea market saturday morning with an unidentified petite ground bird that we should have bought.

2: my new sofa
it's in brian's office.  he looked at it, quickly passed judgement - "i don't get it'.
it's an urban outfitter's tapestry i'd had and loved forever, and now it's a slipcover, paired with a houndstooth, which i thought he would like.  sigh.

2b: new spring dog collars are in the shop.  rowdy went with green.
photo-110greek keys also in pink, orange and black.  these can be shipped easily, says rowdy.  they are $30 and highly fashionable.  (there are 3 sizes - tiny dog, medium dog and biggish dog - rowdy is medium at 40lbs)

3: next month, i'm going to be carrying roberta freymann's home line roberta roller rabbit.  i am extra stoked about this because her stuff is so great looking, the price point is terribly affordable, and i'll be the only store in NC carrying her line.
there are quilts, baby blankets, fabric nesting boxes, pillows, beach bags, napkins, pouches and other delights.

4: to house a lot of this new merch, i bought one of these.  it's just sitting here empty now...

5: which means april's class is going to be....... bookcase styling!!  my one true calling in life - to make pretty piles of books, and to teach others how to.  i'll announce the date and start signing people up next week.

kirsten posted today about a good friend of mine.
this ceramic elephant stool.  until recently, i mostly used him to hold a cocktail on the patio, but i recently employed him in a bathroom, holding hand towels, and he was great.
