Friday Find – June 3

Hello, my name is Donna and I am a procrastinator.  Admitting it is the first step right?  Except in all honesty there won’t be steps 2 through 12.  I know it. You know it.  My family knows it.  So lets just move on okay people, nothing to see here.

Now, the reason for my little rant.  For reasons I won’t get into here, I’ve been on a clean up kick the last few weeks and let me tell you it feels good – damn good!  With apologies to the sanitation engineers that appear at the end of my driveway each week, I have been brutal to my hoards of collected “necessities” (I even threw out all of my design boards from school).  I have to be, because along with my admitted procrastination, I also suffer from a minor case of “collectorism”, or as DH says “you-need-that-for-what-exactly?”.

Wow – two minutes in and I’ve already told you way too much about myself – sorry…

So, in my clean up, I came across all of the great material I “collected” at IDS 11 in January – and yes I know this is June.  I found lots of good stuff, including, sadly, gift certificates and coupons that have long expired for things I probably wouldn’t have bought anyway.  But there were a couple of gallons of paint that may have found itself thrown on a wall in my house somewhere.  Oh well.

One of the great things I came across is this week’s Friday Find (finally… you’re saying).  At our really cool IDS11 Tweet-up, we got a goodie bag with a little package from The New Traditionalists.  I flipped through their furniture booklet and came across these pieces:



I love the lines and colour of both.  What do you think?

Happy Friday everyone!


  1. Love 'em too :-) And if it makes you feel any better, I haven't gone through my IDS11 stuff yet either. Or my IDS10 stuff, for that matter!

  2. Ha! Ha! I still have a pile from IDS too! Love the sofa and buffet! Have a great weekend!

  3. Yep....same here...sorted through the bag when i got home, put it ALL back in the bag and it's sitting in my office....somehow I think that pile will file itself. That sofa would be spectacular in a condo...my condo!!

  4. Gosh, after reading your confession about the material from IDS11 I laughed and told my DH - then I read the same from Kelly and Lisa and Maureen! I am in totally fabulous company ;) This can only mean that we all lead very busy lives and know how to prioritize!!! LOL Though not a traditionalist, I do like the credenza! The lovely sofa leads me to a question: when clients have concerns re: upholstery when their family members have allergies and asthma, would you recommend leather (or suede?) rather than fabrics?!

    Hope you're enjoying a terrific week, Donna! It was wonderful to meet you at #summerlude and to have the opportunity to chat over the excellent 'Santana' ...and Sangria! ;) Best regards, Pam
