Gifts That Men Like

I am always scouting around to find great ideas for my clients and friends.  Today I found a great source of gift ideas for men, including a desk tic-tac-toe game, desk globes, hour glass, manifying glass, compass paperweight and more.  These are great gifts for him to display on his desk, in his bookcase, etc.  If you would like a unique gift for that special man in your life,  please contact me and we can find just the right gift.

Made in America

I have been reading more and more articles about how the "Made In America" label is coming back into vogue.  The Boston Consulting Group is predicting that more products will be manufactured in the United States over the next 5 years due to many factors, such as rising China labor costs, higher US productivity and a weaker dollar.  Plus the fact that shipping costs are rising makes American made products more cost effective.  My thoughts are that there is a resurgence of American pride which gives the “Made In America” label a certain cache.

I found this an interesting read.  Here is the Boston Consulting Group report if you would like to read it yourself.  Let me know what you think.

Redesign

I stumbled upon this post by Leslie Causey, owner of LC Home Staging & Redesign, on my Linkedin  Staging & Design Network group.  These are great ideas on how you can reuse and redesign what you have or what you discover into beautiful, eco-friendly and useful home furnishings.  Check it out, leave a comment.  Would love to hear your thoughts.


What can you do with an old pallet?

Antiquing In Sanford

I found some wonderful vintage pieces on my latest Friday shopping trip in Sanford, Florida.  Vintage furniture usually refers to any furniture produced between 1920 and the late 1970’s.




This vintage 1960’s side table has a few dings but otherwise it is in remarkable shape.  Notice the marble top.


This campaign desk is a replica made from reclaimed wood.  It was evidently made by a true artisan since the woodworking detail is fantastic.

What a beautiful cobalt blue vase!

Lennox china - what more can I say?

I just fell in love with these perfume bottles.
