Double whammy high-low between yesterday and today, because I love you guys and gals. A blog I often read (even though blogger will not let me follow, grr technology) is Brooke Giannetti's Velvet and Linen. I've been reading her blog, and then book, for years. Well the other day she posted this super fantastic visit with Nadine and Lars Bolander. I spotted this little gem in some of her photos.

And it just so happens for the past few weeks I've been looking at these. From World Market for $299, the
Indonesian Bench.

And then Restoration Hardware's 19th Century Chippendale Bench for $1725.
So, how are you celebrating today? I'm always so curious as to how candies and chocolate evolved from a holiday of the saints. Hey better than Capone's massacre, no? Well if you are still looking for a gift, what about this ring set? Just kidding. Happy Valentine's Day.

oh LOVE those benches! But that ring -who in the world would buy that? LOL I forsee many a breakup for whoever receives that today.

The benches are cool, but it looks like those stones are going to roll into the pool.

Stone spheres as a rule frighten me, especially around children. So dangerous and easily toppled or sent rolling.

Parnassus, I completely agree. They make me nervous, I could just see them rolling onto a swimmer and knocking someone on the head but maybe I am just a worrier!

I actually ordered the daybed version of these benches. I have been hemming and hawing for weeks for a guest room but I thought, why not. If I hate it I can park it out on a lanai or something. I def. went low on this one... I love a deal! So I am glad you approve Stefan!
