Sorry for the lapse, lovers. It's funny how many projects you can finish when you stop blogging about never finishing them. MAJOR progress at Casa Olsen ... more details soon, but I'll throw out two of my current minor obsessions in the meantimes:
This is the cutest thing I've seen for twenty bucks in months, maybe years. In my favorite commie colors: Black, Red and White! Sean is on the hunt for a bistro table like mine (he doesn't need the chairs) and found the little space age-hair doodad table above. Urban's "UO" line also carries a leather butterfly chair for $248. Not bad.
Elmer's Craft Bond, where have you been all my life? I'm making a felt folding screen right now that I gave up on upholstering (apologies to the downstairs neighbor for when I lost it on my staple gun). This stuff is SO much better than Spray-Mat or any other adhesive I've used and is half the price. Bonds tightly but you can reposition your materials, and the fumes, while present, are bearable and don't leave the thickest stickum film on every object in sight (naturally I'm crafting indoors. It's cold in that back alley!).
Okay, back to glue-gunning the black grosgrain ribbon trim...
