We’re Back from NSS

The National Stationery Show is over and we’re back home. Yay! Next week, I will be sharing photos, talking about the experience, and also getting started with a series of business posts. We just got back today though, and I need a little time to rest, upload photos, and really process everything.

First things first… Paul – you wanted some more home talk, yes? I liked your bitchy comment.

People, did you know that Madeline Weinrib rugs come in other colors? Besides the ones listed on the website?

Behold. It is PINK, and it will soon be here.

Pink Madeline Weinrib Zigzag Rug

Brandon and I bought it from ABC Carpet and Home as an anniversary gift to each other (we’ve been married for 4 years now). I like knowing that we’ll see the rug for years to come and remember that we bought it in New York, on our anniversary, after doing the National Stationery Show for the first time. Um, I also like the fact that the rug is pretty much perfect. For me, anyway. Pink? Zigzags? Oh yes.

    Faithful reader, terrible at commenting. But love you so much wanted to let you know there’s an extra “t” in the carpet link.

    Love your house, own a bungalow in Columbus and it wants to be like yours when it grows up.

    Love your stylish stationary- super glam. We’re a paperless home (mostly), so it’s just eye candy for me. But we’re in love with your decor. Paul’s bitchy comment was cute. Welcome back.
