Awesome Yard Sale in LA on sunday, and Dollhouse challenge extended

You know i’m going. 

She’s my friend. And i’m only friends with people that have cool stuff in their house.  She’s one of my favorite people ever, partly because she has the coolest stuff ever – see how that works?

She started out as a stylist and three years ago she started Ban.do.  You know these guys:

mini ban.do heart

I have one, you have one, we all have a red sequin heart pin, don’t we? (those are the mini-s but i like the white background. the larger ones are $15 and the smaller ones are $10) How are those not already in your or your daughters/sisters and mothers stockings?

Anyway, she’s selling a bunch of dope stuff and i’ll be right there to buy it (after the Long Beach flea market).  I’m hoping she’s selling the yellow sequin vintage dress she wore on her 30th birthday because its crazy fun – not matter how much Brian told me i looked like i was a nutso whilst wearing it.  Actually,  Jen, you better keep that. It’s a Jen Gotch staple at this point.

 

It’ll be a party.  

Last photo by Max Wanger and look Bri is in there.  Hi, Bri.

And for all you who are doing the dollhouse challenge you might be irritated to know that yes, its extended because 4 of us (at least) aren’t done.  I got held up by my electrical, so i couldn’t wallpaper so i couldn’t hang art, etc – i mean, its literally like doing a real house.  I have more anxiety about it then i do almost anything else in my life – i’m not kidding.  

I’ve been out of town all December so far, so i’m hoping that now i’m back for 10 days i’ll catch up.  And then January i have 4 trips already including Alt Summit, which will be dope.  So let me know what is reasonable for you guys.  Feb 1st?  

Of course i’m done shopping, its just the renovation that isn’t progressing as fast – how very ‘emily’

    Did you cancel the dollhouse challenge? Extended maybe?

  2. oh! this is literally blocks from where i'm going to be living starting next month. as i love all things pretty and all prices thrifty, i'll try to come by! thanks for posting about it. :]

  3. Hold up, you're going to be at alt? I hope this doesn't sound weird, but that makes me feel like my 345 bucks are totally worth it – hope to get a chance to say hyello.

  4. oooo okay, i'm kind of relieved to know the deadline has been extended, perhaps more people can participate now! although I also did sorta do a 'reveal' of sorts…i'll spread the word :) Feb 1st sounds…good too? XD

    or, you can see my now re-titled "Partial Reveal" here…..hehe

    it's been really really fun so far, made a lot of new friends and also learnt alot about 'styling & designing'…thank you for the push ;)

    Oh thank god, I'm not done with the dollhouse either. I was just gonna show up at the westelm by my house whenever I got it done and have my own reveal.

  6. Molly

    Totally with Brianne on the semi-stalker-level excitement that you're going to be at Alt. You're pretty much the best thing that's happend to my DVR all year.

  7. Thank you so much, I was so disappointed last night to past very crappy pics of an unfinished house. I feel better now.

  8. Susan

    I was wondering…glad to know it is extended…turns out to be much more labor intensive than I thought! Seems I'm not alone ;)
    I did reveal my dining room yesterday, which is complete!

  9. The extension is totally OK with me! Although I wish you would have told us sooner. I feel like a big ding dong for pulling late nights this week to get it done by the 15th. No worries, though. I totally understand the need for more time. I'm so excited to see yours!

  10. Lauren

    You always make me wish I lived in LA. And other than the fact that my brother lives there, I could maybe get on your show and you give the best "places to shop tips" ever, there's nothing else that interests me. I don't mean that in an offensive way at al… it's just not me. Yet, I read your blog and constantly wish I was there! So, unrelated to this post, everyone vote for SFAS here! http://www.casasugar.com/Best-Design-Shows-2011-20877376?more=true

    Love this color blocking! So fun!!

  12. Sounds like a great yard sale! I had a great time meeting you at the West Elm party the other night. I scored a new shower curtain and had a yummy coctail!
    xo, Maggie

  13. this is totally random and only kind of related to your post today, but if you're ever in the middle of a cross-country road trip, you MUST do some antique mall thrifting in the middle of Missouri. i was at a place the other night that had a ton of great stuff that reminded me of you and i posted pics on my blog today – http://show-meadventure.blogspot.com/ – enjoy! (especially the poodle lamp. not a joke. a real poodle lamp.)

  14. Whoo, it's like party is always up, my aura was also lifted up when I saw this, really loved the colors and more.
