Hey! Hi! Love your quick wit and your yummy delicious pictures -- I am about to read through the "hell to the no" and "etsy abominations" categories right now!

Loving that yellow door! I'm a bit confused by the triangle chairs, am I supposed to recognize those? Am I going to be stripped of my blog for not knowing what they are? I do kinda like them, though

Are those... chairs? They look like drafting tables, or maybe some type of tortuous ab machine?

The article says: "The two angled chairs look flat, but the latex seats stretch when you sit. The late-’60s pieces, whose pillows are pony skin, are Mies chairs by the Italian partnership Archizoom." And I doubt your blog will be taken away. Maybe your birthday though.
