Pretty and Soft

The bag is just about perfect.. It's pretty to look at and very soft. It feels like lambskin leather. It's a decent size for an evening bag also, large enough for essentials and small enough not to be in the way.. My one gripe is that the straps, being chain, are very heavy. I think this is because it's a double chain, not just a single one. I think that if it were a single chain it would have been perfect.

Modern Furniture..

What do you think? Do you like modern furniture? I am generally attracted to vintage-inspired furniture or things with a rounded shape.. I like circles :) But I ran across this chair at and I am loving it.

While it's not traditionally vintage-inspired, it DOES remind me of the old slipper chairs. I LOVE those.. Normally I like a chair with arms also, but these are wide seated and usually just downright comfy.. Also, I find them good when you have a room full of people. You can turn to whichever side you want to have a conversation without an arm in the way to keep you from turning. And the modern, bright pattern is fresh for a room that's mostly sort of "old fashioned".

I've been thinking about chairs for a while now. When I get moved I want to get a couple new ones. These will definitely stay in my mind.

Dear Followers, don't leave me yet..

Hey there everyone.. I know I have been idle for quite some time on the home decor front. My house is no longer a happy place to create and decorate since my landlord won't do anything to repair her properly. I am just waiting to find a job to see where I need to move.. This is why I havent created anything new for my house.

I have been on a jewelry-making kick lately.. I will post about that here too (and on my other blog). It may not interest you as much, and for that I apologize. I am just at a point where I actually get to wear more things now. Before at my job I had a uniform-it was horrid. We also could not wear any jewelry at all. Now, even though I'm working for free til I find an actual job, I get to dress up every day.. It's started my jewelry making juices to flowing.

Also, right now I have a concussion. My hatchback lid on my car didnt click up so it fell down right on top of my head. Dizziness, disorientation, and lots of aching have ensued. Just what a girl needs right? But hopefully it will be better soon. Also hopefully I will get moved soon and get back to what I love.. Just please bear with me :)
