Happy end of the weekend! I am sitting on my couch in front of the TV, eating a killer BBQ meal and watching Family Guy (my favorite) after an incredibly productive day in the garden. It was the PERFECT day today in Portland - yesterday too! - and it seems that everyone was outside doing something. Towards the end of my gardening time - you could smell the BBQ's firing up all over the neighborhood - there is nothing quite like that smell!
I have been a total slacker this week on the blog-front. But on the upside - I have a whole lot to share....
Tomorrow I am expecting a HUGE delivery of custom furniture for several clients. My favorite piece in the order is a BEAUTIFUL upholstered platform bed. The headboard is very simple, square and 65" tall...outlined with beautiful chrome nailheads - an upholstered platform and square black wood feet. I ordered two of them, I liked the one for the client so much I ordered another one for me! YIPPEE!!!! The fabric I chose for the client is a red and black linen weave linen/poly blend with a few metallic fibers for accent and the fabric I chose for me was the same pattern but without the red, only the black. I had one of these beds on the floor of the shop and took more than a few orders off of it. It really is beautiful and stately.
With my new bed, I will be accenting in orange (of course) with orange sheets from The Company Store and a beautiful white down blanket from Down, Inc., an orange and white Chinese Toile quilt for the foot of the bed by Pottery Barn.....oh and two KILLER orange Robert Abbey triple gourd lamps from my shop - LOVELY!
Lastly......check out this picture of my darling puppy Stella.......she is a Treeing Walker Coonhound...but in this picture doesn't she look like a kangaroo? this picture was after a long hard day at doggy daycare - she goes to Dogs Dig It in Portland - they have a doggy web cam and we can spy on her during the day - It's hard to be the dog!
