I am loving this firepit idea!

I wanted to give you a tip on a new site I’ve been drooling over. I read your blog, but as an Expat in London, have to find companies willing to ship to this side of the pond.

Check out – good design at affordable prices. They manufacture and ship direct to you – really cool stuff. We’ve already bought from the Boundry and Axis collection, and I have my eye on the Orson Sofa.

Just a tip for a future post perhaps? And if they offer any free swag for the coverage, you can have them deliver it to my house :)

Thanks for the links ~ I will check them out!!
