Sunday quickie

Posted on Sun, 30 Jan 2011 by KiM

Jo mentioned in her post yesterday that this weekend is our last blog-free weekend, and while she kind of broke that rule by blogging, I am doing the same. I thought I’d get some blogging out of the way that I was supposed to do last week. Before I get to that, we’ve had people leave comments here and there asking about whether we’re on Facebook and Twitter. Some members of my family have also been driving me nuts about this so over the holidays my husband got us up and running on both, and has been maintaining them ever since. Although Jo and I already have our hands full, hopefully we’ll be able to start getting more involved. So in the meantime check us out on Facebook here, and Twitter here.

Alrighty, so last week we had 2 new advertisers join us that I wanted to mention. The first being J.Covington Home, a shop based in Portsmouth, NH that now has an online store of beautiful furniture, lighting, pillows, art, antiques and home accents. Unfortunately they do not ship internationally so I will have to love their pieces from afar, but folks in the States can take advantage. I devoured their website and below are some of my favourite finds.


After the jump is an introduction to another new advertiser….

Curtainworks has joined us as an advertiser and this online shop only started out in 2009. They sell MANY styles of curtains to appeal to the masses. My favourite curtain is a grommet top in a thick sailcloth canvas, and to my delight Curtainworks carries this curtain in several colours. (I have been searching Ottawa for weeks for this exact curtain in white for my dressing room with NO LUCK). I was sad to notice that this shop also only ships within the U.S. 🙁 For those in the U.S. shipping is free on orders over $100. 🙂 Here are a few product shots from their website.

Both lovely but I adored everything from J. Covington – will be popping over there next – what a fun eclectic mix!

couldn't help but notice that there are a few US websites you wish you could shop on. I live in Calgary so I'm faced with the same issue, try this website:
it's a company that gives you an American "mailbox" then ships you the items 🙂

Wow, there are a lot of great things going on here in curtain land! I officially am confused as to how I'm going to tackle my floor to ceiling windows in my new place, but I'm loving all these options and fresh ideas. The one thing I did not see much of is variety in the way these things were hung up. One of my favorite looks is with metal hooks. I think it adds a modern, yet industrial look. A little less "cute" that some of the ones on here…but still really classy. What do you guys think of these?
