Brocade Home Sale {save 50%}

Brocade Home is having a generous sale for those of you who have your eyes on some of their pieces. They’ve just marked down lots of items – 50% off! I know, how great is this!? I see more and more of their tables and chairs in magazines lately and I’ve heard positive customer reviews concerning the overall quality of their furniture so I guess that’s good, right?

I really like their lace patterned bath cabinet, you could totally line the interior of the door with pretty paper or fabric. I also like the silhouette nesting tables for the living room. If you are feeling creative why not paint them a bright teal or solid black to create a different mood entirely? I’d like to get my hands on this chair and reupholster it with a modern pineapple print from Rubie Green.

Bodie and Fou {summer sale}

Starting July 1 (mark those calendars!), Bodie and Fou will begin their summer sale where you score lots of designer favorites for 20-60% off of retail price. As I looked through their shop online this morning I couldn’t help but love some of their product shots and would like to share some of my favorite products with you today. These are all so stunning, I could live in these rooms… I like all of the pretty cut out patterns and textures. Oh la la!

And I want this mirror (above) for my new bathroom. It’s exactly what I am looking for. I hope it will be included in their sale!

Fishs Eddy Spring Sale {50% off}

Fishs Eddy is having a tempting sale where you can save 50% on a wide range of ceramics for the home. These woodgrain plates featuring woodland critters are only $6 each, the pitcher (perfect for flowers) is $16, and the bird on a wire cake stand is also only $16 (cake stands are great for displaying pillar candles too).

Of course, my favorites are still the Dirty Dishes designed by Cynthia Rowley that have been around for awhile now but I’m still charmed by them. Also 50% off, you can view the entire Dirty Dish collection here.

{psst} Meg was spotlighted in yesterday’s Wall Street Journal in the article Crafty Hobbyists Create New Careers Using the Web. It’s a quick bite featuring 4 basics that every craftster should know before setting up shop: sticking to your vision, locating your core audience, using alternative publicity (like blogs!), and charging a fair price. You may want to check that out. Article written by WSJ writer Amy Palanjian.
