D.I.Y. Decor

Talk about the ultimate do-it-yourself in home decor. Jonathan Adler has come up with another great idea - modular dresser drawers that you can arrange into your ideal dresser. Now, aesthetically its not exactly to my likely though its decidedly mid-century modern flair, I have a feeling, will suit many of you. And I know he's not the first to come up with the idea, but come on whether its to your taste or not you have to admit his execution is beautiful. And actually, the more I look at that stunning white modular seat with the red cushion the more I think I have to have it!

Here it is the first week of February; the start of the "love" month, but honestly this winter weather is giving me no love. Its so bloody cold here in Buffalo! I can't stomach it anymore. So much so that my poor dog has been deprived of his daily walks for the past 3 days! Okay, 4 days. I know I know its neglectful, but again its just so darn cold you could really rationalize that I'm actually doing him a favor; protecting him from the viciousness that is winter. See, the thing with winter is is that its really one of the most dangerous predators in nature. It lures you in with its beauty and alluring stillness while prolonged exposure to its elements can and will kill you.

I know it sounds dramatic, but A.) its true and B.) I've got pent up fever. I could use a little drama! What?! Okay, okay I'll go put on 25 layers and walk the dog, but I won't be happy about it...
