International Bloggers at Domino {yay!}

Today is a really great day! A piece that I wrote for Domino just went live on their website featuring 16 international design bloggers. I pulled it together last month so I’ve been anticipating it to go live every since… I hope that you enjoy it — it’s so thrilling to see these great blogs with their name up in lights. They totally deserve it.

The Style Files, one of the 16 blogs featured.

It was fun to step away from my etsy column for a moment to explore a different topic and I thank Domino for being so open to the idea of spotlighting bloggers for their very own slideshow. I wish I could have chosen more because so many exist out there but I was limited to only 15-16 slides. Perhaps we can do a Part 2 in the future. :)

Thanks, Domino!

…And a special thanks to all of the lovely bloggers who assisted me in my research.

By the way, Domino has a new Search function on their website, go check it out. Makes life so much easier.

Shop Orla Kiely Online {big news!}

This is highly dangerous news. I never thought the day would come when I could announce this on decor8… But I’ve been wishing for it for years now… The availability of Orla Kiely in the states, online, with reasonable shipping rates. They’ve just launched a brand new site for both International and US shoppers and I couldn’t be happier. They have everything available. Stationery, bags, clothing, it’s all there and waiting for us to pounce. They are currently adding their home collection so stay tuned for that.

I placed a bag in my shopping cart to double check shipping costs before writing this to make sure that what I’m stating is true (pinch me, it is!) and to FedEx a bag to New Hampshire was only $15. When I tried to shop them before a single bag was over 50,- pounds (nearly $100 USD!) to ship. Also, all of the prices are listed in USD. This is huge news people. I can’t wait to see what they stock in their home section. I’m hoping for throws and pillows…

See you on Monday!

It’s been one of those days my friends. Thunderstorms, power outages, internet connection out for several hours… So I shall return to blogging on Monday, July 7 since we have a holiday here in the states and I plan to spend a long relaxing time away from work to enjoy every moment of summer that I can. Though the entire time promises to be gray and rainy, I plan to cherish the moments indoors anyway. I’m off to light candles, play some Beirut and Edith Piaf, and make Thai food. I have a craving for something spicy with mango. Have a lovely time off!

7/3 update: i’ve blogged a little over on my more personal blog called haus maus today in case you care to peek in over there…
