in furbish fall news, this guy is coming soon to the store and i hope to set up shop on him.  i've used this leather sofa in several clients homes, and it just gets better with wear.

in cheap shoe news, I went to the mall yesterday, and made these considerations at h&m - leather boots and real housewives booties

one of my favorite things at the new store might be this foxglove wallpaper in pink with the sunburst mirror, the lattice buffet and the asian lamps.
i call this the beyonce room. she reigns over it in an orange lizard frame. rar.

done did, and done for

well we did it. furbish grand opened to a huge crowd on saturday, and we are SO thankful to everyone who came to check it out.

i am so grateful for all the kind things everyone has said about the new store - it's been a monsterous undertaking, and now that's it's up and running, i need to take a major recuperative break. i am extraexhausted, and need to recharge a bit, so bear with me a little longer and we'll be back to normal blogging soon, and i'll have lots of pics of the new store, and new merchandise up online. many thanks again for all the support out there in blog land.

the original crazypants

my freshman year dorm room was decorated around 1 central piece: this ginormous bjork poster. (it was LARGE - like 5' tall)

i've kept it, and considered having it framed but it would cost about my monthly mortgage because of it's size. until funds are secured, let's admire a little bjork style - wouldn't you love for her to hire miles redd and see what they could come up with?

friends, let's ketchup.

i went through my new catalogs last night, and these items were deemed notable. i take pics of things i want to remember.
love these little tables at west elm - martini and the dipped side table.

and ballard had this asian inspired console, and their chic little french chair upholstered in black.

furbs2 is coming along. today we are pouring all the counter tops, which involves big vats of concrete and pink glitter. we had little leather pouches made (and big ones) and this sparkly gold and cream leather is my fave.

it's scarf weather here in NC, and rowdy and i are both enjoying this versatile piece.

an aside:
i need. we need.

aside 2:
we have been spray painting a lot of things gold.
including marley's tail. (keila's dog)

ordering clothing for the store is hard - i've never done 'seasons' before so you have to plan like 45 months in advance. here's next february.

in other news, look at this skirted console on the way out the door today. yummers.

please make sure there is a big pink circle on your calendar for october 22.  i need you at the grand opening.
