bringing sexy back

one of my favorite new discoveries is these cowhides speckled with metallics.  i've used them in a few clients homes and they make the whole room.
you can order through me, if you'd like a sexy back too. just email.

new lamps!

made from old buoys.
i have a great lamp cobbler named david. i just said to him, "if all else fails in the world, you still have the ability to turn anything into a lamp. doesn't that feel nice?"
he said it did.

bookcase of the day

in DIY news

these are both super cute and restore my faith that diy doesn't have to look craptastic.

and yes i am still alive, but very busy.  i have pictures from the greenbrier to share with you asap.  also my mom found the target shoes for me and they are fabulous.  and it was my birthday and i had a surprise party and the hat i wore outlined the birth of hello kitty from hatching in an egg to her current iteration in a zebra suit.  and furbish is posting some of the bigger pieces of furniture for sale on my flickr stream - work in progress.  AND i bought the downtown chic book b/c i could not stand it any longer and have come to the conclusion they are basically just showing up.
