Dear Blog Readers,
We have become the kind of blogger we never wanted to be — the kind who has a "read our blog" button on our website but the newest post is months old. We blame Facebook for this — it's so much easier to write something there and we seem to have more followers there than we did here on the blog. Still, we can't quite bring ourselves to give it up altogether yet — so instead, we're posting this little note to explain our lack of current entries. Please do check out our facebook page, we think it's fun, if not quite as long form.
sincerely, the Joie de Blogger.

We Won't Be Selling This!

Part of the fun of going to shows is seeing strange things . . . like the above. The line is called "the Ex" and the tag line, "Cutting edge, ground breaking, thought provoking design." All I can say is, the designer must have had one heck of a bad relationship - thought provoking indeed! They've taken out a lot of full page ads in trade magazines recently too - they must think there's a lot of angry people out there - creepy!


  1. Good friends of ours, living in California ,sent the knife set to my husband and myself as a combo bday present. Totally wacked out creepy!! They are having
    marital problems so. It is sitting way up high on top of the freezer until we toss it. Glad you will not have it at joie.

  2. Yikes! I have a hard time wrapping my mind around what you would be thinking to give that to anyone . . .
