2 (Not So Broke) Girls.

Anyone else out there love the new CBS show 2 Broke Girls as much as I do? I think it's one of the funniest new shows out there this TV season. I was a little be weary when I heard about the plot, but I watched one episode and was hooked. The humor is dry and sarcastic and the comedic timing is spot on. Basically, the show is about two broke girls (one has always been broke, the other is newly broke has-been trust fund princess) that are trying to start up their own cupcake business while working the night shift at a Brooklyn diner. You can read the full description here for more background info. Bottom line is...these girls are struggling.

So now picture me, sitting on my couch, watching the show about two girls who are making minimum wage + tips that always talk about how poor they are, when I spot some bedding that I can't even afford! Okay, that's a lie, I can afford it, but it's not a purchase I would just make on a save up to invest in stylish bedding.

This is the scene I'm talking about. See all those pretty linens? I love this bedding by Roberta Roller Rabbit! It's actually totally affordable the more I looked into it, perhaps I was just caught totally off guard because I work for a store that sells luxury bedding and we carry the Roberta Roller Rabbit line, which must mean it's on the more expensive end of things. Not the case though, you can get those pillow cases for $40 each, and the euro pillows behind them for $75 each! The matching sheets are also a great price at $140 for a flat and fitted. So, if you're interested, let us know, as we carry her line we'll work out a deal for you.

As for that hanging pink chevron rug? I originally thought it was a classic Madeline Weinrib rug, but now I think it's not...the scale seems off, no? I mean, it can't be, shouldn't the set decorators keep some things realistic?!

Anyhow, just thought I'd share that. Can't wait for a new episode in two weeks!

I'm loving chartreuse at the moment. It feels like Spring in Savannah this week with 75 degree weather, so maybe that's why I'm so into this punchy green. At the shop, we're having a couple of benches made in a chartreuse linen with nailhead trim. Thought they would look amazing in front of one of our linen sofas with a few of these ikat pillows. A pair of chartreuse vases or gourd lamps would finish up that vignette quite nicely. What do you think?

Danish Toys

After my trip to Copenhagen this summer, I became obsessed with all things Danish, including their ridiculously cute baby toys. A Danish company, Maileg, makes these "little sister and brother" mice in a matchbox. Crazy cute! The bunnies with the little sweaters would be such a great Easter gift.

These are some of the baby things we picked out at market for the shop. We also picked up some sweaters, blankets and newborn sets that look so special when monogrammed. They are on the website now!  Coming soon...

More from Atlanta...

More, more, more from Atlanta! I found a beautiful weathered bench and dresser with a cream marble top from Gabby Home. Stunning. The cool mirrors were at Bliss Studio. The chippy knot mirror is hands down one of my favorite finds! It would look good over a console in an entryway or over a bar or sideboard in a dining room. Everything is coming soon and you can order them here.

The Art of Carol Benson-Cobb

This is another great find from my trip to Atlanta last weekend...The Art of Carol Benson-Cobb. Here's how she describes her art - "Painting since childhood, Carol’s work has developed into 'abstract colorization'. It is based on the feeling created within a color palette with an emphasis on the way colors touch, layer and affect one another. Her vision is to create a mood within the art, adding a hint of a landscape element or focal point, usually evoking a feeling of fluidity and emotion. Her intentions are to never fully define a scene but to lead her viewers in the use their imagination and own life experiences to fill in the gaps…"

We have several of her canvas pieces arriving in a couple of weeks to the shop. They are so gorgeous and I think one (or two) may end up at my house. Check out how beautiful they are layered with antique mirrors. Wouldn't that look so good above a fireplace? And they are priced really well, with most pieces under $500!
