What kid wouldn't like a Transformer chair? In this case, this pint sized chair turns into a single tent bed. I hope its designer, Phillippe Malouin, is planning an adult-sized version. If not, with some planning, foam, Velcro, MDF and fabric, it might be DIYable. What the video below to see the chair transform!
Zanic Design's Inside Out Chair is really two chairs in one. A clever design and perfect for when you need extra seating.
How fun! DIY MCM-ness on Instructables. Furniture meister Wholman created this mid-century-ish credenza with a bit of premade shelving and threaded rods. The base is reminscient of the Eames wire-base tables, with the top as classic Scandinavian mod.

She sent an email out which includes an entire list and links of ways you can get in the mood for Sunday's Mad Men premier, including how to recreate Betty Draper's knotty pine kitchen. (Didn't I just spray paint all of the knotty pine in my basement...
I am really excited about this one, which I actually arranged, just so I could shoot a cool beauty story. I think it is my best giveaway yet!
Squirrels!! (Shaking my fist skyward a la Colbert.) Last month I bought a bird feeder, the new Kaytee Songbird Station and hung it from a hook that's attached to my deck. I knew squirrels would be an issue, but I thought I'd install it and then figure out later how to battle them. It took the little effers about a week to discover it.
