Buying Dilemna


Is this not the cutest set you've ever seen?? The chairs PIVOT along the back edge to bring you closer together. This is just the kind of thing I happen across, don't buy and then forever haunts me. I have absolutely no place for this. Husband would kill me if I brought it home... But it would be so cute in a small kitchen for two. Or in a large hallway as a little telephone rest stop! Or a front courtyard, in view of a sunset for a spot to rest with your sweetie while you sip a glass of wine.
Do YOU have a place in your life for this? Contact me ASAP and I will play furniture matchmaker. I love to do that! Almost as much as keeping the treasures I find!

Challis Necklace


On the worktable now I have some new necklaces made with recycled scarves combined with the sweater felt. On this one, I used a floral wool challis scarf with a bit of silk scarf too. Softly colored wood beads, some vintage pearl buttons and cotton thread to bind the pieces together! It was fun to put together!
Feels like it walked out of Anthropologie to me. How would you wear this piece?
