Crickets....

So, you haven't heard from us in a while. Did you miss us? We have been BUSY! We have 2 major things going on this week and next that we can't tell you about.... yet. BUT we will soon :)

Even though we haven't had free time (What's that?), we still managed to find this on craigslist...
Is it real? I don't know, but it looks pretty real to me.
And it's a head chair. We also came across and are the proud new owners of a pair of these. They are hopefully going into a client's master, but couldn't resist. Either way, had to have them.
The color scheme for her room is kelly green and aqua with soft tones of cream and gray. 
Inspired by this...
Loving this for $30. The bamboo and brass mix great -- imagine it lacquered in a color!
And if we didn't have kids, husbands, obligations, blah, blah, blah... we'd be high tailing it down I-40 to pick up these in Raleigh:

Wouldn't this be amazing in a nursery... refinished and covered in this:

Somebody needs this!!! The hardware screams Hooper! This would be great lacquered white or painted with chunky horizontal b&w stripes... (not lovin' the color combo as is).

 Lacquer this and put it in a dining room. Cool art, cool lamps...DONE!
 One is the loneliest number.... I would buy and have the seller ship this if there were 2 ! I am sure I could find a friend on ebay or 1st dibs but I could also just find 2!
pretty and simple in this space!

So... what are you waiting for? Someone grab this stuff up and do something cool with it!

Happy Weekend!
Bye, bye Birdie,

Hi girlies~
I can't tell you how it pains me to see the new trends in vintage furniture. My dad was an architect and when I was twenty and stupid, he gave me two Warren Platner/Knoll tables from his office. He had all the chairs, too, with the turquoise cushions. Spiffy. When I started with the baby making, I left them at my mother-in-law's house where they were sold in a garage sale by a wicked sister-in-law. I cry big tears.
The chair you show on this post used to sit in my MIL's living room. It's so funny how everything comes back in design. Too bad it has to take 50 years, ;)
Happy weekend to you two, too!
