Hot Stuff

March didn't come in like a lion, a lamb, or a groundhog this year. It came in hot. I mean 137-year record hot. It came in like Angelina, Clive Owen, and Chris Farley all sharing one snowsuit.

The planet is boiling and we're going with it.

Barn (wood) burning $349 SOLD

The paint on this desk actually bubbled off when I left it in the window. We've since repainted it and it's been behaving since then but I can tell it's cooking inside. $349 SOLD

All the hot ladies have dressing tables. While you're sitting here smearing on rouge like a far-sighted grandma, someone might ask you "What's with the war paint?" and you'll just smile. SOLD

Texting is sterile. Phone calls are predictable. Sit yourself down and write a love letter. Think "Atonement." $350 SOLD

Shove all your turtlenecks, jeans, and fleeces in this deep-drawer dresser. $399 Grab the nearest shorts and don't look back. SOLD

Barn (wood) burning- part two $225 (one sold, one available)

Breath a little dragonish? Pop a couple of these cool mints. Desk $249 SOLD Dresser $349 SOLD

The gal in Atonement never got to write back. Someone really should. He deserves that much. $299 SOLD

This dresser goes with the mysterious bubbling writing desk above. They're extremely old and might be haunted. That's considered hot in some circles. $599

This color is actually called "St. Lucia Teal" Be the tropical vacation you want to see in the world. $349 SOLD

I honestly can't think of anything hot about this harmless little set...but hot isn't everything.
Dresser $399 SOLD Nightstand $159 SOLD
