Here’s a quick update on our Old House: Lots of progress is being made on both the pipes and the kitchen remodel. We are excited to get these two big pieces under way and completed! Until 2013, happy holidays!!
Can you believe it’s only 4 days until Christmas! We are so excited (and thankful) to have all of next week off to enjoy the holiday with our families. However, since we will be busy spreading cheer, we unfortunately will not be able to ship anything until we return on January 2, 2013! Whoa, 2013… I can’t believe it! Like always, here’s a quick recap of all the fun that was had this past week!
#9 Acrylic Green Base Bench | The Acrylic Green Base Bench is one of our favorite accent pieces in the entire boutique. We love the bright, glamorous fabric on those Lucite legs. Pictures hardly do this one-of-a-kind item justice, so you must come by and see it for yourself.
#8 Antler Bowl | Think of all the holiday treats you can serve in this one of a kind antler bowl. This serving bowl will never go out of style and can be used for several different occasions! Sadly, it is only available in store for purchase – stop by today!
#7 Vintage Green Rattan Rocking Horse | This cutie would make the perfect timeless edition to any children’s room or playroom. The vibrant color of his exterior will also brighten up the room (and the mood)! Come by and check him out!
#6 Mid Century Brass Crane | Another fabulous addition to our Mid Century Brass Collection, the one and only Crane. This vintage piece really makes a statement anywhere he is placed, and would make a wonderful gift for your trendy loved one.
#5 Courtney Pendant Chandelier | This chandelier is truly unique in style. We love the ambiance it brings to a room when turned on in the evening. Or hang it in your office for a unique look!
#4 Copper 3 Circle Earrings | Look no further for your Christmas Day earrings. We love these beautiful copper earrings as a gift for your friend or mother, better yet get them for yourself! Treat yourself.
The second week of our 30 Day’s ’til Christmas countdown ends this Sunday. Did you miss the first magnificent 5 days of week 2’s cheerful items? That’s O.K.! We’re here to reminisce in the joyful memories we’ve made this past week via E-Commerce. So lets take a look at what we’ve featured, shall we?
#23 : This is a quintessential vintage lamp that we adore! Who knew Thomas Edison was so design savvy?
#22 Precious Jewelry : I genuinely believe that a girl can never have too much jewelry. I also believe it’s an essential part of any outfit. Also, who doesn’t love a little flare?
#21 Nicola Parente Art: We are big Nicola Parente fans at Ohorona24.in.ua. Not only is his art stunning and unique, he is also a very admirable person, whom we have really enjoyed getting to know. You should check out his amazing work!
#20 Pine Wrapping Sheets: This beautiful unique wrapping paper is sure to stand out underneath your tree this year! Give your presents an added boost of excitement by covering them in this beautiful dark green paper.
#19 Nouvelle Fireside Candle: There is nothing quite like the scent of the holidays. Without it, Christmas just might not be the same. That’s why we love this Nouvelle Candle, and depend on it to bring a little warmth inside our home every year.
#18 Cloth-bound Collection: So now you’ve finished wrapping all the presents under the tree and your house is smelling extra Christmas-y. Now, you can finally relax and curl up next to the fire with a classic piece of literature. Check out our amazing collection of Penguin books that your family is sure to adore.
#17 Brass Collection, Shrimp: We love this little guy, and hold a special place in our boutique’s heart for him. However, we believe he deserves a real home, filled with those who love love him like family. That is why we think you exceptionally well decorating readers of ours should check him out!
Well that’s about it for week 2. I hope you liked the featured products! Do you have any favorites? Let us know we love hearing from you!
Exciting announcement #1 (well, exciting in the world of the Old House)! We took all of the sheetrock off of the kitchen walls and discovered the house is, in fact, made of concrete (as opposed to the typical wood 2×4 construction)! Not sure what that means for me really but my general contractor seemed to think it was a very good thing.
Exciting announcement #2 – After 2 months (seriously, it’s a problem) of wading through what seems like every option on the planet, I made my window selection today! Drum roll…Weather Shield windows from Exclusive Windows and Doors (Thanks, Burke!). I know what you are thinking and the answer is no – I am not a paid spokesperson. It was just that difficult to decide and Burke and co. were incredibly helpful and patient through the whole process! Plus they are right down the street from my office which makes visits to the showroom to change my mind extremely convenient.
After all of that, the new windows are going to look EXACTLY like the old ones, which were perfect to begin with, except for the fact that they crumbled into crunchy window powder when you touched them. The only difference will be that they will be obsidian (fancy window lingo for black), on the exterior. I love the contrast with the white stucco (which will remain white stucco) and I think it will be very cool with the classic look of the home. Or at least I think they will be obsidian… I may change my mind on that… sorry Exclusive Windows and Doors.
In case you don’t recall what the windows looked like:
That’s all the news I have right now. Slow going. Next week we can discuss my awesome existing plumbing fixtures that I am going to powder coat and the vintage (1990s era) Viking range that I am actually going to keep!
Introducing our very first 30 Days ’till Christmas gift (#30)… our Cobalt Blue Cake Stand! We know how hard you’re going to work in the kitchen, preparing the most beautiful, delicious meals for the Holidays. That’s why we believe your gem of a dessert deserves to be served on only the most elegant of platters.
