LOVE!

While on a roll with rustic, weathered posts....there is something SOOOO GOOD about an old beat up leather chair. Via Nuevo Estilo.

Just a quick note: For those in Ottawa Sunday, it's the first ever ManMade show at Mill Street Brew Pub - with 30 dude-worthy crafty vendors selling their goods, and there will be FREE BEER!!!!

My husband Jeff has a booth for his Daff Design products (mainly vintage radios converted into Bluetooth speakers). This morning he sampled his first floor model radio to me and OMG! I think he will be bringing it to ManMade so come on out and listen to it and check the other radios out. It's going to be a BLAST! Cause craftalicious goodies AND BEER!

Understated glam

A glimpse into the Milan home of Carolina Castiglioni, via The Selby. Glam, but understated. The best kind.

New around my house

Having just ended a four day weekend, I managed to get some photos taken around my house and get them organized for a couple of posts. This first post is to show you the new dining chairs I purchased, along with a few rugs to help hide my hideous floors. As I hinted a couple of weeks ago, I got my hands on a set of eight vintage reproduction tulip chairs, from Benjamin Curran in Montreal. Yes, EIGHT. GIDDY UP! They are fantastic for repros - the bases are steel and the seats are fibreglass. They are upholstered in a chocolate brown velvet which I am slowly learning to love - especially the velvet part. When it comes time to vacuum up the cat fur it's a breeze, so I think the velvet will stick around a while. Or I need to find some other colour of velvet to reupholster them with. Please keep in mind with these photos that I have done nothing with this room except purchase the light fixture and credenza. I need a new larger dining table, paint, new curtains, a new rug (this one makes the chairs look really beige which is driving me nuts - I'm on the hunt for a replacement to the cowhide) and whatever else I can come up with. 

A couple of weekends ago my husband and I took a drive out to check out the Third World Bazaar in Manotick. They are open 6 weekends a year around Thanksgiving, and carry beautiful products sourced from around the world - Bangladesh, Namibia, South Africa, Kenya, Guatemala, Indonesia etc. I try to go every year (my sister's godmother Brenda Cavaciutti helps run it - it's one of the only times I get to see her) and always come home with a car full of goodies. This year it was all about rugs, required to help hide my yellow/orange stained hardwood floors. I found 3 small rugs - wool kilims from Morocco, Pakistan and India. I have 2 in the living room and 1 in the foyer. The cats freaking LOVE them. Which is great seeing how easy it is to get cat fur off of wool (that was a totally sarcastic remark). They're doing the trick though so I can't complain. P.S. This weekend is the last chance to hit the bazaar this year so GO!!!
