Happy Valentines Day! We’re going to celebrate by staying home and watching movies in a complete vacuum of flowers or chocolates or anything red and pink.
A new Anthropologie store opened in Palo Alto – I love everything in that place but I just can’t buy anything, it is all so expensive. One of the things I wanted most was a Orla Kiely bag. It’s too bad the stuff on Anthropologie’s website is so different from the stuff in the stores, if it was the same inventory I could at least visit pictures of the things I like.
Does anyone know where the Discount Fabrics warehouse in San Francisco actually is? My searches are showing up a variety of different loctions (Bryant at 4th, 501 3rd, Mission Street) and I completely don’t know which is current (or correct). Do you know?
Yay! Something I’ve been hoping would appear for a few years has! Negative candy conversation hearts – Bittersweets “perfectly suited to the dejected spirits of those who will spend the holiday alone, or wishing they were” – from Despair.com. via Going Bridal.
This lovely person has taken in a poor little dog who showed up on her doorstep. In her words:
“Yesterday morning we were woken up by a weak barking at our front door. A little old pomeranian had found his way to our home, and desperately needed our help. We call him Heir Baron Munchausen.
Munchee is between 6 and 12 years old and appears to have traveled a great distance before ending up here. He’s very weak and has been sleeping for a record 26 hours strait. He hasn’t touched food and I have to force feed him water. One of his nails is half-ripped out and remains intact only because a matted hair overgrowth is wrapped around it.
In addition to being severely malnourished, he is anemic from the flea colony (population: 3-400) living on his little frame. He weighs in at about 1 pound or less.
Baron Munchee does not feel good, and I think he deserves to feel better.”
You can go see pictures of the adorable Baron at www.line-noise.com (the full story is here) and if you would like to help with a donation or something much needed (flea collar, clippers, vitamins) they are very welcome. I’m a little late on this since I’ve been absent, and it appears he is doing better, but is still in need of some things. Jacqueline is a very kind person!
I really like the wool throw at Publique Living – exaggerated moss stitch is kind of interesting.
Check out the January 30th entry at weaksauce – boob scarf. wow.
There are several Tool Lending Libraryies in the Bay Area, yay! San Francisco, Berkeley and Oakland. I wish there was one closer to me, but I live in suburbs now, I suppose I’m expected to have my own tools. Via GirlHacker.
The knitwear on Ed has been looking good for the last few episodes. How would I find out who does it?
Unica Home, because they seem to carry all of the design-y products.
Another really cute sock doggie, awww. Let me know if you or anyone has pictures up to share.
