im not so sure i want words on my walls though... i think i would tire of that phrase tooo quickly...

I'm 22 hours ahead of you, David John, making it April 1st here. ;)

I caught on after the second picture!! You are funny!
Happy April Fool's to you!

(I hate words on all things - pillows, jewelry, walls, etc.)


david john said...

but you got to admit, that sofa in the first picture is pretty great!

Ok, so I love all things animalia ( a word?) and will be glad to take the antlers and zebra off your hands. But since the rest of those goodies make you giddy with glee, they're all yours bloggy friend! ;0)

David said...

I was reading that thinking "and by 'heart-beats-faster' she means 'makes my head explode.'"

Happy April Fools Raina!

Ohmigosh we love you!


Raina said...

It is a good sofa, David John. I love leather sofas that look like the furniture equivalent of old jeans.

Best April Fools Ever. Those words on walls (or posters, or pottery or anything that's not a book, magazine or computer screen, make my eyes bleed)

Robin said...

You forgot the dreaded subway tile and sunburst mirrors! And Orla!

Happy April Fool's my bloggy friend!

Baglady said...

Ah, it's only March 31st here. Damn you!

And I must admit, I thought the words on walls said "follow your bits". Oops.

drollgirl said...

That's good Blog, Raina. LOL. I must admit you had me going with the first two (dare I say I don't mind zebra rugs and Hollywood glam a la Kelly W. - can we still be friends?) but as soon as I got to the hideous lace vessel sink I knew the title of your blog was New Zealand sarcasm speak for 'Things That Make My Skin Crawl'. And I, too HATE words on walls, especially that 'Stay Calm and Carry On' poster B.S.

PutzFrau said...

I knew right away at the vessel sink. You can't fool me.

Beautifully done!

sherri said...

I was going to ask you if you had a fever, until I realized you were totally being hilarious. you are awesome.

Awesome Sara said...
