From the window, to the wall...

Holidays are coming!
Can you believe Christmas is less than 3 weeks away??!!  Time for panic buying Christmas presents - keep your gift receipts people! For the 5th year in the row I dusted off our sad little 5ft tree.  By the time I had attached all of the branches, there were...

Lime Chair
And the newest member of our household is this little beauty: I'd been eyeing this chair on the Target website for weeks.  It went from regular price, to sale price, to clearance, to gone!!  Ugh, don't you hate it when you wait too long to buy something the...

Runner Runner!
Can it really be nearly 2 months since my last post??!!  Where does the time go!  In short it's been filled with work, a surprise trip to Vegas, a not so surprise trip to England, and finally some booth space.  The booth is only just beginning to take shape...
