contemporary design resources

One of the topics I thought I would blog more about is design. To make up for my lack of posts in this area I decided to share some of my favorite resources for home accessories and furnishings.

Paul! Is that a picture of a wood veneer clutch purse? How cool is that, and where is it from?

Holly- my pleasure. Your blog is fantastic! I don't know how you find so many well-designed things each day. I have a hard time writing about one.

Elaine- the purse is from Relish. Here is the direct link.
