there are some things i need to talk to you about

By 8/30/2011

no, you're not in trouble.  we just need to catch up.

irene was no big deal here in raleigh, and we ventured down to wrightsville beach to inspect and no problems to report there as well. some down limbs, it got gusty upinherr for a little while, power out for a hot minute, but all in all, irene was overblown. (that's weather humor folks)

i opened this one night before bed and stayed up til 4am to finish it.  good book.

i enjoyed doing a little shopping for jamie meares and other clients whilst at the beach. i went to a few of my very favorite places with this gem at the very top of the list.
paysage is a yummy luxurious decorating is delicious boutique that is brimming with inspiring vignettes and so many pretty little moments.
if you're local you should definately go meet all of the paule marrot pieces in person and ask for autographs. (fame)

next door is arlie moon where i pick up claus porto soaps and beach days laundry detergent and vacuum balls from the good home co. (yes, vacuum balls - we have discussed before so don't look at me that way).
both products are a must-have and there's NO where local to find them, BUT furbdeux will have both. booya!

and next next door is brasserie du soleil, my most favorite french restaurant with the world's best french onion soup and escargot.  the back patio is the place to sit - not only is it lovely with the bistro chairs and peach marble tables, but it's so loud inside you're bound to stroke out from the noise.  ps this cat lives there and has a cat igloo/condo out back
and so french.  look at him judging me.

also, i'm just as excited as you are about wearing fall boots.  i took my fryes in this afternoon to get a little tune up before the season premier.  my thoughts are:  these paige fryes are worth every penny, but good lord are they hard to get on and off.  it's a two man show with a side of claustrophic panting everytime.  all my efforts had broken two of the little tabs on the sides.

in fact i enjoyed my boots so much last year i am considering adding a second pair to the repertoire.  these do it for me, but i don't want to look like a label hooker.

i could probably get over it.  (being a hooker, but not the boots)

in conclusion, i would like to tell you that things are moving along swimmingly with furbdeux.  keila and i had a come to jesus talk tonight where i concluded that this endeavor is go big or go home, and i'm not that great at hanging around the house.  so i'm doing this thing up like nothing has ever been done before, so thanks beyonce for stealing my thunder, but i'm also birthing something pretty special.
orders are showing up everyday and we're itching to get everything unpacked and furbled.  today we shrieked for at least 45 minutes while we opened up our new jonathan adler boxes and THEN approved the final version of our custom tunics.   looking like opening day will be 10/22.  start clearing out your house.


  1. This is all just too, too exciting, Wow. I am loving these great shops, a little envious!

  2. How exciting! I wish I could come visit in person.

  3. So excited for your new shop! I'm liking the vacuum beads. And those bookcases ... wishing.

  4. Congrats - you DO have a lot going on! Enjoyed Room as well - now reading Ahab's Wife - dreamy, but about 700 pages so you may be in trouble if you decide to stay up and finish this one....

    xoxo michele

  5. I will fly in from Austin JUST to visit the new digs! (Okay, and to meet my new niece or nephew.)

  6. We cannot wait!! We will be there with bells on!


  7. Very excited as well! Can't wait to see your new space.

  8. I am wishing I still lived in NC so I could see your shop! Good luck.

  9. Looking forward to October.....I will be hitting I-85N just to come see you....smiles

  10. I love both Paysage and Airlie Moon! We used to live a hop (don't even need the skip and a jump) from Lumina Station and those were definitely favorite places to peruse. Though my lower lever apartment that flooded every time it rained was not the place for such pretties. But lucky me that I live in Raleigh and will absolutely come to Furbdeaux!

  11. Lovely update! A tip: get a boot jack. You can use it to take off your boots. If there's a western wear store in your vicinity, that's where you can buy one. Here's what they look like: http://bit.ly/q5fwn3

  12. Hoorays! I do need to clear our my house. That is actually on tap for the weekend. Drinking/cleaning/organizing...maybe not in that order. I need to make space so I can Furbish-ize the rest of my home!

  13. I am excited about your new shop. Don't forget to show us pictures! :)

    P/S: Come by and enter my giveaway for a chance to win a personalized necklace. Today is the last day to enter! :)


  14. Geez, i got all nervous after seeing your post title in my blog roll!

    so excited for you and this new big exciting venture

    and also, i need to get my grubby hands on that gold drum pendant from the store pic...got deets? Can you pimp it?

  15. I'm looking forward to seeing the new shop. Congratulations on all the goodness going on in your world.

    PS. I'm loving those boots by Ms. Tory.

  16. This is going to be so dangerous! I don't live there but will you be having some of your new goodies on the website???

  17. Wow congrats on the new shop...cannot wait to see it!! Loving all the pictures....my favorite kinds of posts. Saw the TB boots too, really like them despite the big T! So great to back in blogland, hope alls well!

  18. I've been eyeballing those Paige boots in the last Garnet Hill magazine, which by the way nobody will tell me if that's old lady clothes?? It doesn't seem like it and then the pajamas are all for MiMis? I'm so confused.

    ANYWAY, too excited to see new pictures of the store. Congrats on the big move!

  19. I have a pair of Frye boots that pull on too. I wore them to
    an outdoor concert and halfway thru nearly had the mother of all anxiety attacks when I realized that even if I wanted to take those damn boots off I couldn't! But they are my favorites!

  20. Tory burch is another one of those brands I cant buy just on principle. Like Juicy. But I like the boots.

  21. i'm pretty sure parker + otis in durham has claus porto soaps (among a zillion other things I'd like to buy). & they also have an amazing turkey, bacon, & avocado sandwich!

  22. Will you be hiring more staff for the new place? I like the sound of unpacking, selling, and sitting amongst pretty things.

  23. Irene was a huge deal if you live in Eastern NC. Count your blessings. There are residents still without power in the Outer Banks region.

  24. Its must be an outstanding post ever i had never seen before and i really enjoy your post..
    Thanks for the post and have a great day......... by OPS 571 Final Exam material provider
