Someone needs to buy this...

Because I have no excuse to and it's awesome.

Offi Wave desk for $600:

Another random Etsy find

Went on today and search for "bird sculpture". This is the delightful weirdness I found on the first freakin page:

Of course, I had to click through to the seller's shop to see what other types of surrealness were on offer.

Yes, that's a poodle with the head of a human skull. Wearing a crown, no less.

Victorian lady with a bunny head. I shit you not, I crap you negatory.

The only question remaining is whether I should go with the "classier" Robin Danny Boy in white or the Boy Chick with Owl Bonnet in a turquoise blue that will really pop against our primarily white walls.

I'll quit procrastinating next week

Instead of gardening and home improvement and all that other stuff we're supposed to be up to, this is what we've been doing:

So, yeah, still no movement on the backyard. I've culled some sweet-ass inspiration photos, though.

Liking the geometric concrete pavers contrasted with the black river rocks. (via)

Needless to say, I'm not putting a freakin flat-panel in the backyard, but the metal grating on top of the grass fascinates me. (via)

More concrete pavers plus river rocks, with a lab throw in for good measure. (via)

Pretty much everything that Anna at Door Sixteen is looking at. Especially the wood decks, geometry, and levels at Modular Garden:

Also, fire pit kits, retro bullet planters, and some eco-pavers that are totally not our style but I love the concept.
