Curated Sale With Joss & Main……

I know I have been a bit silent as of late regarding my “big news” and I apologize.  I am not sure if you are like me, but whenever I am bursting to share good news, something “bad” always happens to dampen the joy.  So I was super hesitant to put this news out there until all the paperwork was signed, sealed and delivered.  Now that all that stuff is done, I can finally announce that …..I will be curating a Joss and Main Sale on April 29!

I am super excited over this opportunity and to be officially sharing the news with you.  I am currently in the process of deciding on the direction for the sale which is due to Joss and Main next week.  So let me ask you….what do you want to see from me?  A curated sale about tabletops and dining?  A curated sale with an ethnic influence?  Or a curated sale that focuses on integrating color and pattern into your space?

Leave a comment and let me know what you think about the focus of the sale.  I have one more announcement that I will be sharing next week.  Waiting on the final bit of information before blabbing to the world.  However, there is one thing I don’t want to wait on — thanking all of you for your support.  It is because of your readership, tweets and referrals that all these wonderful things are happening.  Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.  I am forever grateful and humbled.

Current Obesssion: Framed War Medals

War is not something I would glamorize. The loss of life, the destroying of property and the separation of families is something I think most people do not want to be constantly reminded of in their lives. However, with every war there are feats of bravery and valor that should be commended and remembered, hence where medals and awards come into play.

I am always drawn to things with a story and honestly, nothing has more of a backstory than a war medal in my opinion. They mark instances where men and women have risen to the occasion often above and beyond the call of duty.

I find them eerily beautiful and have recently been obsessed with collecting a few on eBay to frame for my home. I am not sure to feel sad that someone felt obliged to sell these mementos or feel honored that I can give them a home in which they will be respected and revered.

I know it’s an odd way to kick off a week, but these have been on my mind ever since seeing one for sale at our local swap meet. So tell me, what things had you obsessed this weekend?

Check Me Out at Alice In Designland

Hope y’all had a great weekend!  My weekend was filled with work of various sorts….school work, house work, design work.  Makes me feel that I almost didn’t have a weekend at all.  However, the one bright spot in  my weekend was that I received word that the pictorial story I did for Alice in Designland was live!

The editor, Dia, contacted me a few weeks ago and asked if I would share my Music Room with her readers.  I was flattered and happy to do so because (1) I love Dia’s blog and (2) the Music Room is near and dear to me heart since it was the first room I fully conceived and decorated from scratch.  Take a moment and scoot over to Alice in Designland and take a look at the new pictures of the room!

Big thanks to Dia for letting me share my room with her readers!
