Marketplace: Getting Fishy

When I was young, I had a pet fish named Hercules. He was the easiest pet. So, when I saw this fish bowl, I thought of Hercules…

And then I thought that I could dedicate a post to all things fish. So that’s what I’m doing.

Furniture: Garden Benches

It is almost almost warm enough to sit outside. I cannot wait to put my furniture back out on my deck, lounge around outside with my latte, and fall asleep on my hammock. I am made for summer. In anticipation of green garden life, I’ve been browsing through many garden-y furniture collections. In particular, I’ve been focused on intricate garden benches.

Marketplace: Moroccan Wedding Blankets

I first posted about Moroccan wedding blankets back in 2010¬†(here)¬†and¬†then again here. They continue¬†to hold a¬†prominent place in people’s homes and in the design community. ¬†At one time, they were nearly impossible to find, but now¬†they’re available in blanket and other forms in mainstream stores like West Elm and Anthropologie, and there’s an incredible number of items available on Etsy.
