More Cool Blogs and Stuff

Hollow Chair

I want one of these. It’s not the most beautiful piece of furniture but it’s cool. I love the idea of turning my chair into a bookshelf. Talk about efficient use of space. I wonder how hard it is to sit on. Still, I think it’s an ingenious idea. I discovered this awesome hollow chair on The Awesomer, a website dedicated to find awesome stuff for its readers. Check out the other chairs in this post. They are unique, funky and charming. There’s bound to be one that catches your eye.

Interested in the environment and living in a positive, sustainable way? Even if you are not super-environmentally conscious, is still a blog worth checking out and bookmarking. It’s packed full of information on a variety of subjects from AmaraGold Jewelry – Made from Upcycled, Un-mined Precious Metals to an experiment in going gluten free for a month to urban farming in New York City.

My personal favorite is The Vintage Traveler, a blog that takes you to the world of vintage clothing. A post on 1920s dress labeling reeled me in. Visit the link and you will see a 1920s flapper dress that transports you back through time. I am a bit in awe of people who can dig through boxes of discards or old clothes racks and make valuable “finds.” I don’t have the patience or the eye to really spot the gems. But what I really enjoy about this blog is the detail the author goes into not just in craft, ie how the clothes were made or the designs and fashions, but the history behind them. I’ve subscribed to this blog and while I don’t expect to go out in search of any vintage items, I do look forward to being educated on the subject of vintage fashion.

    I like the chair too. But as those of us who own cats know, if you don’t completely claim a space, THEY WILL. So I’d have to shove this so full of books they couldn’t squeeze their way in. Which I could. But the minute I took something out to read or use, I have no doubts one of them would be trying to wedge their way into the open space.

    Thanks for the site suggestions!

      ROFL! I totally forgot about cats. They do like to claim territory. You’re right, this would soon become a favorite hiding place. Okay, maybe this should be billed as a chair for dog lovers. ( :
