Royal Wedding Banter Amongst the {Real} Commoners

Here's one of my favorite things about this typical Facebook banter:

  • Jenni is my classmate from grammar school. I don't recall us being super close in school, but we're practically Facebook Besties.
  • Brian left our grammar school in second or third grade, so I don't know him at all. But he's so funny and smart on Facebook, that I wish we were better friends.
  • Susan is our best man's sister who I've met twice. She's very nice.
  • Shari is my cousin's former teacher who liked our invites. We've talked on the phone and get along swimmingly, but I've never actually met her.

{In the Works} Tie Dye Pillows and Ikat Chairs

I've become bored with our orange pillows and wedding pillows on the big green couch. Hours of e-searching for fabric hasn't warranted anything that wouldn't give Andy a yeast infection (from the girliness) or isn't $40/yard. I've talked myself into these and am now obsessed with them.

From my new Paper Source (i.e. my new retail obsession), of course. I am even considering paying shipping if they're sold out in Chicago. (The Oak Brook store was sold out.)

Speaking of fabric, I've ordered this excellent orange and white ikat to recover our kitchen chairs:

I was so excited to find this fabric. It was *exactly* what I had envisioned in my mind. Unfortunately, it is a trade fabric, but I found an etsy seller who was kind enough to order some for me.

Sneak Peek... a project we finished last night.

Our place may be a little bit disco, but who DOESN'T need a little bit of disco in their life?

Representin'...or Not.

The Chicago poster from Ork has been around for awhile now:


I'm personally digging the city neighborhood maps series from These Are Things.

I've had one in my shopping cart for weeks now, but have yet to click "Purchase." Do I really need a map of what's outside my door?

I love, love, love the world maps from These Are Things:

We need more walls. (Although, Andy would probably beg to differ.)
