at the tradhome party later that night, i besieged nathan with dog talk, and he handled that fairly well.  you have no idea how cute he is in person.  so cute.

speaking of the party, it was at harbinger, and let me just show you their kinds of fabulousness:

  2. Holy crap! Can I be your BFF? That was so much good design in one sitting I feel a bit blind and brain tingly. Need to digest, then look at it again and again.

  3. Separated at birth us two. I wish you could see my iPhone and my car last week..It had almost everything from your post in it...
    I bought those NT ottomans for a client and I die over them. I also almost bought those mecox pillows for client awesome......mainly because they were everything, but sad face, they cost as much as a rolls royce so alas..they stay living at there current home...
    So sad you were stomping at my stomping grounds and I missed your pretty face.
    muchas smoochas

  5. I've wanted that Victoria Pearson "Lemon" print (Nathan's store) since I first saw it years ago in HB - NOW I know where to find it! Thanks for the virtual trip to la la land!

  6. Seriously?! Can I just be you for 5 minutes or Amber for that matter? Sheesh. Almost too much goodness to digest. But I am especially mad over those 'nature' photos at NT's new store mainly b/c I just posted about blowing up one of my pond pictures for the kitchen just like that lily/frog business. PS - the new and improved Furb is everything. I still get massive compliments on my bracelets that I ordered from you a century ago...
