Croched necklace

I was browsing the net early this morning and came across this beauty. Now I need to learn to crochet or find someone who can to make me one. This necklace is so feminine and you could wear it with a pair of jeans or a casual dress for a touch of girliness.

Handmade Wilderness Projects by Ruby's Lounge

I was browsing on Etsy the other day and came across these wonderful wilderness projects by a fellow Etsian at Ruby's Lounge and wanted to share them with you. Wouldn't they look great as a non traditional display above the mantel for the Holidays? Hoping that some day I can own one of them as well.

This is Twyla

I came across this ugly duckling on one of my recent "hunts". She was hidden in a pile of furniture, completely forgotten and unwanted. Take a look at the before picture and you will know why. In my studio I stripped the old faux marble finish and gave her some teal shoes to wear, and look at her now. Ladies and gentlemen, here is Twyla, your not so everyday coffee table.

Perfect dining room

Who says you need tons of $$ to create a stylish dining room? I absolutely adore this look and admire the genius who thought of this. Everything in this room looks so casual and nature inspired.
Bon Apetit.

My new favourite dress

I was browsing the Marimekko concept store pages this morning and came across this beauty. Violet base with yellow polka dots, mmmmmm. Hope I can get it in time for holiday parties.

Gray dresser

And here it is, ready for showing in its beauty. Charcoal gray with aqua coloured glass knobs and two accent knobs from Anthropologie. This picture may not be the best one as I took it with my camera with my less than good photographic skills and while the piece was still in my shop. Will share a better one soon. Hope you like it.

What to do?

Just last week I came across this piece and no time has gone by before I started working on it. Now that all the dents have been filled and sanded I have to decide on the final colour and need your help. I am toying with the idea of pumpkin orange, eggplant purple or charcoal gray. Any other suggestions? Please share your thoughts and take part in this marvelous transformation... Thanks friends

A little bit of yellow on a gloomy Tuesday morning

I painted this little piece in a bright shade of yellow to brighten up the upcoming cold months. "Another yellow piece", you'll say, but I just can't help myself since I love it so. There is another piece in the works, but the colour I intend on introducing is a new one for Poppy. Can't wait to share it with you.

Fresh Start

It has been a while I must admit. Lots has been going on in the past few months and I have neglected the blog a bit. I have decided to leave my day job and completely dedicate my time to the growth of the furniture and home styling business. I have also decided to mature my brand image a bit and have introduced a new logo, just something to tell everyone that I mean business. Even though I loved the old one i think this one may take me a bit further.
Here is a picture of the first job that I did under the new image. For more, check out here. Hope you like it.
