Weekend Update from Bed
We've succumbed to the plague- think its the mother of head colds, not the flu- so I have been laying low in bed. So far I watched Groundhog Day way more than once, and finally got a chance to watch Downton Abbey and bawl my brains out.   (So not good with a head cold, kind of feels like I could suffocate.) 
I've also read all my online mags & I picked up new bad habits on my iPad. like this app:  Weekend Update from Bed
 drawing, sketching virtually, happiness Weekend Update from Bed
and of course this one: Weekend Update from Bed right now it is mostly just my kids doing goofy stuff (they REALLY like Vine),  but I hope to start using it for before and afters & how to's...
On other fronts, we have new patterns at O'verlays and a new website that will be launching soon. The current one is impossible to navigate with all the patterns/sizes, and we realized we started this company not expecting it to grow so quickly and with no knowledge of websites (just a blog)- so thank you for your patience while we have been mucking through it.
Weekend Update from Bed This is the new Bubbles design.  Over on the blog, we are showing her off and doing a "How to Mirror your Malm" tutorial. Very easy.   (and we finally released the thick Greek Key Brackets, check em out on the Lack table in the background or on Sanity Fair's Vittsjo etagere.)

And one last nugget for the "Pickers" out there planning to be in the Portsmouth area. Last weekend my husband and I did a "date day".  We hit up a couple of salvage yards and found a great little gem of a store that specializes in vintage lighting.
First the lighting. You must go here: Weekend Update from Bed
 Knew it would be good by the sign outside the door... Weekend Update from Bed And when I walked in there truly were no words, I just had to remember to breathe. Overhead was more vintage lighting than I have ever seen in one room. It was like Ebay and Craigslist in person... Weekend Update from Bed  (sadly what heaven would look like for me, but with out price tags of course) Weekend Update from Bed  worth the trip for the "after-life" sensation alone. Now lets talk salvage yards... Right next door to the above lighting utopia in Exeter, NH is this place: Architectural Salvage Inc. Weekend Update from Bed its a bit of a dig through and it was VERY cold inside, so bundle up, but the shop owner was really nice and helpful. I scored this brass lantern, which I plan to use in the remodel somewhere... Weekend Update from Bed
The next salvage shop is not to far away in South Hampton, NH. Nor'East Architectural Salvage
This place was more organized and better laid out. It had tons of lighting, old built ins and knobs & bits: Weekend Update from Bed
