Dying for this quilt at UO

UO suzani quiltSo I’ve been dying for this quilt for some time, and now that it’s finallllly on sale I’m completely broke and would rather not add this to my credit card.  However, I’m completely in love with it.  Soooo cute and it’s the perfect summer quilt for when it’s too hot for a duvet (yet still I feel as if I need something on my bed).

 In general I have to say that I’m finding myself really liking some things from Urban Outfitters home section these days.  I don’t even go in there anymore for their clothes (which is disappointing because I used to be able to find good basics as well as great jeans…but I guess I’m finally officially over their target age range.)  Anyways…the point is that they actually have lots of cute home stuff that I find myself wishing I had, such as this adorable embroidered pillow, this cute leaves tumbler, and this chandelier wall decal.  (I hate myself for even admitting that I like a wall decal.  I’ve scorned them for so long…) 

Oh well…soon I’ll be spending time & money on painting & renovating projects.  At least I can dream about these cuties.


Art Star Craft Bazaar: Now taking applications for 2008

Art Star Craft Bazaar

Art Star is now taking applications for the 2008 Craft Bazaar that is being held at Penn’s Landing on Saturday May 31st (from 11-7pm) and Sunday June 1st (from 11-5pm). 

This is definitely one of my favorite local things because of the amount of wonderful (and affordable!) art & crafty stuff you can find there.  Last year I wanted to buy one of everything, but finally edited my purchases to one little cup by Little Flower designs & a paint by numbers at someone’s yard sale down the street.   If you haven’t been to one of these, you definitely must go this year.
