Take *that*, Ebay!!!

Whilst I was entertaining myself during my childrens' naps the other day, I decided it had been far too long since I had visited Elle Decor and dropped by to pay her a visit.

She is always so chic and on point with everything that's happenin' in the world of decor...kind of like the popular girl in high school that you always want to know what she's wearing so you can copy it admire it. (c:

And just *look* at all the fun she's been having without me! 

Fabulous little lucite/brass coffee table giving me a come hither stare...

 I'm not usually a dark and wood kind of gal, but MAN, this space is just so cool...it's an old factory, too, so that ups the cool factor by about 10x...

Stripey sofa in a Parisian apartment?  Why yes! Thank you, I don't mind if I do!

 I'm not really sure how I feel about the puzzle piece art...it's interesting, to be sure...

My fave: light and bright with color and coolness abounding. 

And a *B*I*G* thank you to everyone for their advice with my little dilemma yesterday...you will be happy to know that I decided to give Tar-jay one last go...

...and I not only found this little piece of fantasticness *in my size* (miracle of miracles)...

...but it was also marked as a "repackage" (which means absolutely nothing because it was *perfect*) and so instead of $34.99, it was $24.99!!!

SHUT RIGHT UP.

Yeah, it was in my hand and out the door before you could say "Take that, you evil ebay dealers, you!"

It's adorable, so thanks for keeping my shopping compulsions in check...y'all are good friends (c;

I really like the puzzle art! It's really different. I've seen so much lucite these days I feel like I must get a lucite chair, desk, book shelf something!
