Lissa Rivera

Last night my sister Deirdre sent me an interesting article she came across on the Good Blog. It's about a series of photos that Lissa Rivera did of schools, both public and private. There are some interesting photos, definitely check out the rest of them here.

The Linda Horn Store

available @ Linda Horn

The prices will make you shit, but Linda has some really special pieces. Definitely worth checking out if you find yourself on Madison Ave. on the island of Manhattan.

15th Place: The Homies

So the voting is over at Apartment Therapy for best design blog and I came in 15th place!! Kind of shocked to have made it to 15th place out of 648 blogs. The comments are great, they made me more excited than they probably should have. I have a lot of fun posting stuff on this blog and I'm super happy that a lot of others enjoy it too. 2 of my favorite blogs/sites are still in the running (Remodelista and Door Sixteen) and one of my other favorite blogs beat me out, The Brick House (damn you!!) But in the end I have loved this format (minus the difficult voting process) and I'm stoked to have found out about a bunch more really dope blogs. Till next year..

Three Potato Four

I love bottles with numbers on them.
available at Three Potato Four

I haven't checked this site in years, it was always a little too feminine for my tastes. Today for whatever reason I checked the site and was pleasantly surprised. There are quite a few vintage pieces as well as some TPF original pieces that I'm really feeling. I will definitely be checking in more often.
