Any ideas on this one?

So - Need to know - does anyone know anything about furniture?  Spotted over the weekend. A cute chaise sofa for UNDER $1,000. Yes people - you read right. $1,000. As in one comma zero zero zero.
There are almost 40 colors and various fabrics to customly make it what you'd like. Any thoughts? Our den/man room/big tv room is in need of something stylish and comfortable and Frank-friendly (he will never learn the couch isn't for him).  The room is a big square so a chaise sectional would just be perfect for lounging and make room for extra seating.  I am THIS close to ordering... Just give me some thoughts, feedback, something!!

Music to my ears.

Did you catch the Grammy's last night? 2 of our favorite bands performed. Mumford & Sons + The Avett Brothers. Amazing! If you missed it - please, enjoy.

I saw The Avett Brothers back in 2006 at Rock the Block - playing for screams in downtown WS. It was a true awakening seeing them play and being completely dumbstruck by their awesomeness. I could have cried last night I was so proud of those boys.

A formal apology

Dear Mrs. Metts,

I am deeply sorry for not practicing my required 30 minutes a day and every lesson on Wednesday evening you would berate me for being such a disappointment. But I still have a great love for the lovely sound of piano. See? Listen.

Also, I hope you are not buried in your basement with your 15 cats and 15 pianos and Garfield cartoons and readers digests and shag carpet. How did Mom ever find you?



painting of a boat

I am on the hunt for a painting of a boat. I keep seeing these everywhere and I want one. My parents have a small canvas that hangs in the upstairs bathroom (or it did when I was growing up) and I may have to call Mom and see where that bad boy is now. Probably in the basement or a closet. Maybe she will let it come live in my house for a bit.

Just a few of my inspirations....

images all from, where else?

Old vs New

Felt it was time to retire the old bag and bring in a freshie for a bit.

Old purse meet new purse. They kinda look like distant cousins to me... Oh well. Happy Wednesday everyone.

I Declare

Ms Meares is in this month's debut of HIGH GLOSS magazine.

She is featured. How cool? I have known Jamie since oh about 6th or 7th grade. She makes me so proud!! She might not remember this, but I recall discussing the "store" and if she should do it over beers the weekend of a friend's wedding...I knew she could do it all and she hasn't even finished with us yet.

Go and check it out. Purty doesn't do it justice. And HGM is amazing balls. Loved it.

Also if you haven't yet - you must check out her online shop Furbish Studio. I picked up a sweet gift for a friend but won't be revealing (she's one of my sweet readers). And Ms Meares gifted me some hot little earrings I can't wait to pimp.

Awesome times ahead with these beauties.
