Tigers in Your Face

Last week after I posted the magical Diane Von Furstenberg leopard rug kt left a comment with a link to her dreamy tiger rug:

When she said it was in her nursery, I was pretty jealz, but when she said it was only $200 I went into full-blown freak out mode.  I couldn’t believe that I had just finished my own tiger-friendly nursery and never knew that ebay held such cheap tigerly riches.  Of course, I raced right over.

What I found was nothing short of magical:

Ok, so I know many of you don’t share my affinity for tacky animal decor but just amuse me for a day.  I mean, really, you may not want this in your house but you can not deny the awesome power of this white tiger astral area rug.  Holy fuck, it rulz.

Are you feelin it?  Well then go on with your bad self and spend the $63.20 to make this 5′ x 8′ rug yours.  YES, SIXTY THREE DOLLARS FOR AN 8 FOOT RUG.  I’m sure it’s 100% flammable, but it’s also 1,000% awesome.   Original link here, but if it’s expired, just search “black midnight tiger rug.”  You’re welcome.

Here’s more:

Jungle African Queen Area Rug

4′ x 6′ = $24.99

If you dudes aren’t peeing yourselves yet, well then I just don’t know what’s wrong with you.

Tiger Family Border Rug

4 x 6 = $24.99

Personally, I think the border cheapens it.

Double Tiger African Area Rug

5 x 8 = $63.20

You can’t make this shit up

Lion and Male Tiger African Animal Rug

5 x 7 = $7.51


Oh, did you want something with “class” ok, well, I also found some rugs similar to the ones in kt’s nursery:

Tibetan Tiger Rug

58″ x 32″ = $295

Tibetan Skin Tiger Rug

2 x 3 = $169

Surprisingly, the tiger rug options are endless, I strongly suggest some downtime with a nice “tiger rug” ebay search.  Until tomorrow: Rawr!!!

Choose Your Own Adventure

Quick!  Let’s list off some of the things I love:  animal furniture, groovy sculptures, anything gold, pretty pieces of furniture, well organized spaces, animals, animals, animals.  I think that’s all.

So, what happens when you take all of those things (minus the gold) and roll them into one?  Karly is in heaven

Panther Table

Last Friday my new couch got totally upstaged by my panther coffee table.  Yes, my brand new most expensive piece of furniture was put to shame by a pair of panthers purchased from craigslist and spray painted by my mom.

So let’s talk about them.

Note, this is actually a super old picture with my old couch and old rug and tile-free fireplace.

I purchased 4 of these panthers from craigslist for a whopping $100.  They were black with eyes and mouths painted on their silly faces.  I think the rocks under them where gray.  They were pretty silly.  I bought them from a former bachelor who had, according to him, spent years looking for a panther table only to marry a woman who demanded they vacate the premises.   While I may have reconsidered the union, he instead chose to sell them to little old me.

I carted them home (breaking one along the way) and made a plan to paint them gold.  Before I had a chance to give them the Midas touch, my mom came along and did it for me.  Thanks mom.

I know these panthers are pretty rad and you probably think there’s not much more i can say about them but you would be wrong.

Recently, while watching old episodes of the most awesome show ever made in my lifetime I observed that TRACY JORDAN HAS THE EXACT SAME PANTHER TABLE IN HIS FREAKIN DRESSING ROOM.  Ok, his are black, but that’s fine, because TRACY JORDAN HAS ALMOST THE EXACT SAME PANTER TABLE IN HIS FREAKIN DRESSING ROOM.  I wish to all things holy that I had paused and taken a screen shot but I didn’t have the foresight to realize it then and now the only episode I saw them on is a distant memory (I had a 3 season marathon and it’s all a blur).  This is the best picture I could find online.

Find me a better picture and I’ll think of something crazy nice to do for you.

Before I hit the road, I want to apologize for this quasi lame post BUT BUT BUT, I’m working on a big huge post for Thursday that involves a big surprise announcement that’s not to be missed.  Unless you have the option of taking the day off work and going shopping or swimming, then I would probably miss the surprise in that case.

Sick Day

Ok, so I’m not sick, but I am pretty hungry and am choosing dinner out with my husband over blog party.  Sorry, dudes, but you do get me the other 364 days of the year.  I have decided to pack a lot of kapow zing into one enchanted picture though:

Huzzah!!!  Image via fullboom

If you’re left with a craving for full length awesomeness, might I suggest Erin’s post from yesterday?  It was kinda my favorite ever ever.  See you dudes tomorrow.

Wait, wait, wait, not done yet!  I’ve been so mesmerized by that bed that I just now noticed the flattened puppy rug.  This room is __________________________!!!!!! (I invite you to fill in the blank)

Round Top Round UP Part Deux

Do you remember once upon a time last Monday when I told you all about my magical trip to the Round Top flea market?  And remember how you, me and everyone we knew cried a river of tears over my loss of the THREE FOOT TALL brass horsey?  Well, guess what:

S-U-C-C-E-S-S spells success, homies.

That’s right.  Yesterday Erin, Patrick and I braved hurricane force winds to make our ways to the Shangri La that is Round Top.  Patrick and Erin may have been a bit peeved at me darting through the fields early in the day to find my one true love but I was too focused to take notice.  Besides, they were too high on Kolaches to really care.

Let’s take a look at the stud in his forever home:

Now, everyone, please take a moment to compose a lovely comment shout-out to my mother, aka, Connie who is a wise an loving woman.  So wise, in fact, that after seeing my post on Monday thought that the pony, aka ‘lil Patrick, would make a lovely birthday gift for her soon-to-be 31 year-old daughter.  Thanks Ma!

The day was off to a running start (as previously mentioned).  We were greeted by these loving fellows, which I took as proof positive that my horse was still in the field for me to find, love, and take home.

Uncle Sam assured me that I was on the right path

After a greeting from horseys and Sam, we were off on a Magical Mystery Tour of the Fields

We spotted this little clown pouf that begged to be purchased as a gift for either Erin or Jennifer’s nursery.  I couldn’t decide between the two, so neither of them got it.  Ha.

Patrick, Erin and I all simultaneously choked on our funnel cakes when we saw this oil painting, but at $450 it was not to be for any of us.

This stately gentleman was more affordable, but is he really life-long friend quality?

I can always find my life-long friend in one of these, but, well, I just didn’t feel like buying it.

These sweet swans bid us adieu from our final day at Round Top.  Patrick tried to smuggle one of their nest cigars but was run out of the booth by it’s meth addict proprietor.  Whatever.

So.  What did we come home with – other than the most beautiful pony on the planet, achy backs, sunburns, and sore feet?

Erin adopted this sweet little panther for her and Ben’s baby making nest

This poorly photographed, Adler-esque Horsey is now living on my bedroom fireplace mantel.  Note:  almost everything I bought today had a horse on it, except for this:

A fishy belt buckle for Matty Bear.  What kind of wife would I be if I didn’t bring him back a prize in thanks for letting us drive his death-trap van to the flea?

And this: GUM WRAPPER SWAN!!  What are you?  What is your purpose?  I don’t know, but you sure look pretty on my dining table.

DISCLAIMER: this next find was not from Round Top:

OK, I’m really sorry to break up the round top bliss with a non-round top find, but I HAVE to tell you about this lamp.  I was driving down the street the other day, which just so happened to be large-collection pick-up day, and some whack-job-crazy-pants put this lamp out on the street for the trash collectors to pick up. What?!!  Now it is mine and I will love it forever and always.  Or until I find a bigger, fancier arc lamp.

PS. sorry about the fireplace, I still need to retile it. And those vertical blinds are the bane of my existance, I promise they will be gone by the next time you see a photo of this room.

The end.
