denver craigslist....pretty awesome.


thanks for voting for me yesterday...i am in the lead.

which feels good.

like a glass of wine and a muscle relaxer.

not that i know what that feels like.

but i imagine it feels like winning.


don't forget you can vote every 24 hours.

if you felt like making sure i get a million votes which would take me from top design blogging mom to queen khalessi of design blogs.




we are at colorado in the 'craigslist alphabetically' series..

i chose denver bc it's the capital.

and i chose wisely..



 vintage sofa- $200.

great shape and bones.



vintage refrigerator- $750

mint condition.

how cute is this??!



driftwood stump- $50


perfect as is or you could get some glass cut for it to make it bigger.

but i like it just the way it is.

it is smart. it is kind. it is important.



staffordshire dogs- make an offer



 chinese console- $167

great price.

new versions of this cost thousands.



brass and glass cart- $100




dinette set- $185

the more i look at this the more i love it.

 brass and walnut floor lamp- $65

quirky and shiny.



antique table- $35

so cute.

i would use this as a bar set up on my porch for parties (that i never have)

plates, glasses, platters, bongs...

a weekend project.

depending on the wood in person..
