Loft Room Divider

We're in the process of downsizing from a 4000 sq ft home to a 1200-sq ft loft.  Do you know,  loft living sounds more romantic than it actually is? We find that we really miss the traditional division of space. We miss having rooms.  We miss the privacy!

We've been looking into options of dividing the space.  Drapery is one, but do you have any idea how expensive a piece of fabric with four stitching is?  It's quite a mystery actually, how much drapery can cost.  The other option is to go with a company like the Sliding Door, but they are really pricey too.

We found this company, Loft Wall, today and we thought it might be a good option.  They make portable dividers that you can customize the sizing and the panels.  They are not cheap but they are not too expensive either.  You can visit the web site to download the price list.  Keep in mind that the published prices are retail, and no one pays retail!

Here are some samples:

Modern Planters

When we go to a really cool restaurant in Miami or Los Angeles we are always envious of the huge, modern planters that they have.  It's really hard to find them.  Most of the pottery places that we have in our local area sell the traditional planters.  If you have a modern home you are kinda out luck.

Anyway, we just found a great source today for huge, commercial modern planters that we thought we'd share with you.  They are so cool!  We have no idea how much they cost, sorry. But if you are interested drop us a line and we'll get pricing info for you.

Here are some samples:

About Dominic Jones (courtesy of London Fashion Week):

Dominic Jones was born in Buckinghamshire, England. In 2003 Dominic moved to London to study BA Contemporary Jewellery Design at The Sir John Cass School of Art and Design. Alongside his studies, he collaborated on several projects with the hugely influential London art collective !WOWOW! In 2008, with the help and funding of good friend and now business partner Alice Dellal, Dominic set up his company Dominic Jones Jewellery.

Trained as a fine jeweler, Dominic applies traditional techniques to current design principles. Specialising in gold and precious stones he uses five times the average amount of gold than conventional hard gold plating, creating a higher quality finish to this process.

His debut collection ‘Tooth & Nail” launched in March 2009, receiving fantastic critical acclaim and support from fashion insiders throughout London. Almost immediately Dominic could count Kristen Stewart, Devon Aoki, Alexa Chung and Sienna Miller as his ambassadors.

The British Fashion Council awarded Dominic with BFC New Generation sponsorship for Spring Summer 2010, making him one of the only fine jewelers to ever receive this. Dominic Jones is now stocked globally and ambassadors extend to Beyonce, Vivienne Westwood and Rihanna.

Ilah's First Easter!

Every holiday from here on out will be all the more special. Now that we have started our family, beginning with baby Ilah, every day is magnified with sweet moments to be cherished and certainly the holidays will be extra special as we create wonderful memories for/with our child{ren}.

Ilah got her very first Easter basket this week from her grandma {my mom}. Since we will be in Canada over the Easter holiday, Ilah got her Easter basket a few days early....

It was full with all kinds of adorable things!....

This little bunny rattle makes noise when you squeeze it!...

Look at all this stuff!....
Ilah got a "Baby's 1st Easter" bib and cute little hand held toys to play with. See that yellow ducky? Hilarious little sayings come out when you drop it on {or hit} its bottom!....
I showed Ilah one of her little toys that her Grandma got her and she intently stared at it. I bet she was thinking, "Hmm. This is something new"....

Then she reached for it. "Ahh, this is mine!! Let me get a closer look and feel this little thing. I think I'll pat its head too. Stuffed bunny's don't bite do they?".....

Ilah then held onto her little bunny rattle tightly! She just may have found a new favorite toy to play with {sorry Alfred [the stuffed dog]'re out - little bunny rattle is in. No hurt feelings, ok?}!

Also in Ilah's basket was a "Baby's First Easter" book which tells the story of Jesus' resurrection....

I can't believe how much stuff my mom managed to pack into that little basket!....

Ilah is one blessed little girl!! And so am I, because my mom put together an Easter basket for me too!!

I got all kinds of things....writing pads, candy, make-up, socks, dishtowels, a headband, lotion, and a few things from MAC! {and a very sentimental card too}....

Ilah has a wonderful grandma who loves her more than words can say, and I have an amazing mother who still loves to do special things for me too - like still making an Easter basket for me even when I'm 30 years old.

You're so good to us mom! We love you!!
