Design madness

When I move back to suburbia I would like to call one room in my future home the Mad Hatter room and just decorate it to my eccentric tastes. I 100% blame it on Anthropologie — their recent bout of clock-everywhere store decor has me thinking I want a room of clock upon clock and odd curiosities that are vaguely…

We were looking for small gifts — stocking stuffers, gifts for teachers and co-workers, etc. We ended up finding a treasure trove in the home goods section. The find I am…
