I just discovered svpply via Jessica Hische’s blog Mostly Useless Things I Want, (which is no longer being updated since she got a svpply invite.) Anyway svpply is retail bookmarking and recommendation service. Members, which are invite only, can create wishlists. (You can check out Jessica’s wishlist here.) Basically, this is a great site to find tons of cool stuff that you really don’t need. None the less, I’ll be using this site for inspiration, gifts and the occasional splurge for myself.

dc big flea market round 2

The DC big flea market is happening again this weekend at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly, Virginia. More details here if you are interested in attending. I will be heading there on Saturday with high hopes of finding some good stuff.

fair isle sweater clock

Tuesday, January 5th, 2010


I recently saw this clock hanging in Anthropologie and it was love at first sight. The price was a little hefty though, well at least for me, a whopping $398.00. Recently I noticed that it went on sale and even though it was still a little expensive I was tempted because I thought it was adorable and soo unique. Well long story short I randomly went into an Anthro store over the weekend and discovered that they are relocating the store and therefore all the sale items were an extra 40% off. Right then, I knew that it was meant to be.

Now to find a safe location to hang the clock, where my two mischievous kitties can’t attack the hanging pendulums.

If you are interested there are actually four different sweater clock options on the Anthropologie site: one, two, three and four.
