Oprah bib

[I have absolutely no idea why this stupid picture is on its side.  It is right-side up in my computer, but it uploads like this.  So bizarre. Don't hurt your neck.]

What:  Bib from the Oprah store

Why:  When you go to a taping of the Oprah show they push the store relentlessly.  So much so that after you're starved and crazy from waiting in line for 2 hours then sitting through at least 2 hours of taping devoid of any of your time-wasting possessions (no purses, empty pockets, nothing electronic, not even a book is allowed) it seems like the only place TO go.  So I did.  And this is what I bought.  Cause it's kinda clever.   But (thankfully) my girl outgrew her spit up phase almost immediately before I bought this, and we recently found out our next kid is a boy.  No pink bibs for him.

Where:  eBay.  I figured I'll take advantage of Oprah's last season and maybe get some nostalgia bids.

Come take this desk!

What:  My glass-and-metal desk

Why:  A couple reasons:  my kind and generous friend Karen gave me her old desk set with bookshelves and a side table and headboard and all sorts of bells and whistles for my new office; I need to clear out this room for my daughter so my new baby can live in the nursery.

Where:  You know you want this desk.  It's nice. It fits in anywhere, and the glass minimizes its look in any room.  You don't have to use the whole thing.  Set it up as two desks without the corner piece.  Practical *and* functional.  Perfection!  And look how small it is when you take it apart.  You can totally fit this in your car this weekend.

Danish Modern

For a while there, anything that was labeled "Danish Modern" or even "Mid Century Modern" I had to buy.  It got a bit out of hand.  Soooo, I'm lightening the load.


What:  A really cool 3-candle holder that had one of the aforementioned labels on it at a vintage store I used to frequent in Sydney.

Why:  I just never seemed to take it out of storage for display

Where:  eBay
