A Few Of My Favorite Rosanna Things

More from the Gilt Groupe; these goodies are on sale today! (But there are limited quantities, so hurry!)
Dish out style with this whimsical porcelain dinnerware, whose designs are influenced by fashion trends and founder Rosanna Bowles' global travels. Creative types will love the Le Marais series, inspired by French wallpaper patterns, while those with wanderlust will covet the Buon Viaggio mugs and Le Tour Eiffel trays. And pick up decoupage glass platters and paperweights from the new spring collection, not yet available in stores.

Slings Or Slides?

I found these here, at Kitschy Kitschy Coo, but they are from Kobi Levi. (There are some very naughty shoes there too!)





Little Black Bed - And Other Sweet Things

For those who like to sleep fashionably...


And for those who like dream of sweet things...


By Moschino -- but that site's so loaded with flash and noise that you'll probably want to look at It It's Hip, It's Here first, to be sure you really want to visit it.

No, Thanks, I'll Drive Home

Um, take those posters off the walls and you've got a prison cell motif going on in your guest room...  I realize it's an antique bed, so the mattress options may be limited; but how about more comfortable layers of quilts?  And what is that light?!  Will you be interrogated in the middle of the night?

I've Never Been Given Shoes Before

Especially not as a blog gift! The photo of these pretty polka dot pumps is from Sweat Shop Sissy in celebration of my lingerie blog make-over (The story behind the make-over is here.) ...Now if someone would just gift me the shoes for real! Baby steps, right? Especially in heels *giggle*

So Studded, So Long!

The last time these Michael Kors 'Extra Long' Pyramid Stud Wool Gloves went on sale, they sold out before I could click the link in my Shop It To Me Sale Mail Alert -- so act quick! Or you'll be saying, "So long!" in a completely different way -- and waving good-bye glove-less!

OMG The MOST Beautiful Cake - I Could Actually Make!

I never mastered the frosting bag, fondant, or anything other than icing applied with a knife. I can make gorgeous swirls though, the kind that rival or even best those seen in TV commercials. And I can bake like nobody's business. But my cakes, I've always felt, lacked a certain panache... But here it is -- the most beautiful cake I could actually make! (Follow the link to see the other links to the vintage recipes in the post!)

Mid-Century Modern Lucite Table -- With Red Legs!

I was reading about vintage Lucite trays, and thought I'd check eBay for one... What I found was Killer!

I'm not a child, but I am one at heart, so I want a 3 Sprouts Hippo Storage Bin too.
