I have an eye for console tables right now. Since I bought those rattan chairs for my enclosed side porch, I have a great space for a console table. It will be protected from the weather, so I'm not limited there.
These are some stylish ones I grabbed from pinterest...
...for this Ikea gray-tone rattan chair. I had my eye on it for a while then tried it in my nearest store. Comfy! So I bought two for my porch. It's a great (and affordable) alternative to those harder to find kubu chairs.
By now it's clear that I'm nuts for the collage work of Randel Plowman. I discovered his pieces on his popular siteA Collage A Day where, for the past six years, Randel has been creating - you guessed it - a collage a day. If you've been following me for a while, you'll remember that I've featured his unique collage pieces and images of his studio. I really like his style.
I was thrilled that Randel recently offered a signed copy of his new book, The Collage Workbook, as a giveaway on a perfect gray. Now, I'm gonna be honest, here. I really don't want to part with this book. It's packed with great ideas and techniques on making collages and it even contains an image library that can easily be copied and used in your own collages.
